Chillpak Hollywood Hour #609

On this week’s brand new installment #609, your friends in podcasting discuss the adventures they are looking forward to in 2019. From an update on a certain graphic novel, to an X-Files convention in Illinois in June where the Lone Gunmen will reunite, from Phil’s wedding weekend, to the three or four feature film projects they will be working on, Dean and Phil point the compass of their brains to a journey on the map of the entire infinite! Then, they welcome a special guest, producer and host of Succotash, Tyson Saner! And if you can’t get enough of hearing Dean and Phil, or hearing ABOUT their film, The Lady Killers check out this interview Tyson did with them all about the movie!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #473

After 2 weeks with special guests, your friends in podcasting are back with an hour of freewheeling, spirited, irreverent and insightful conversation. Topics include the death of Muhammad Ali, a book about the purpose of corporations, a great essay (by a brilliant writer) in defense of David Lynch (and indirectly of Dean and Phil’s movie “The Lady Killers”). The first month of the summer movie season is analyzed, a great new documentary film about stand-up comedy is discussed, Dean’ updates his fine art and comedy endeavors, and Phil describes his trip to Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi as well as his exploration of Route 66.

Get your kicks!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #435

After much hilarity, this week’s show begins with a letter from a listener like you (yes, YOU!) commenting on Dean’s use of the word “sensei” and his use of reverb on last week’s show. From there, your friends in podcasting remember actor Martin Milner and discuss Veronica Lake and the therapeutic aspects of acting, before launching into the movie and tv news that caught their attention last week, including such topics as a “Trainspotting” sequel, Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” debut, the forthcoming New York premiere of the revival of “The X-Files” and Nicole Kidman joining the cast (or not) of “Top of the Lake”. Then, Dean and Phil FINALLY begin their discussion about the art (and commerce) of supporting players and some of the contemporary character actors they most admire. All that plus … Dean and Phil wield influence with the British Film Institute?

Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #126

It begins with Phil questioning Dean about the road trip he just took with his father through the American and Canadian heartlands. Thanks to Dean and Phil’s spontaneous conversation, we can all get our kicks along Route 66 … And those kicks qualify as good clean, fun, NOT the type of kicks that lead to extortion or on-air confessions or apologies. Dean and Phil could not let the week go by without weighing in on the (alleged) David Letterman extortion scandal. And Phil finds he must respond to those on both sides of the newly inflamed Roman Polanski saga. Finally, staying with the theme, Dean and Phil consider a “rape fantasy” episode of David Duchovny’s series Californication after that episode’s disturbing content is brought to Phil’s attention by a loyal CHH listener.

Somehow amidst all that, the new Coen Bros. film (A Serious Man), the newly discovered ring around Saturn (and a corresponding conspiracy theory about its discovery), a preview of Dean and Phil’s forthcoming “live” Berlin podcast, and Phil’s enthusiasm for the best fiction book he’s read in quite a while all get discussed.

Perhaps this is what is meant when people say, “Through the magic of podcasting” … Wait, people DON’T say that? Well, that’s only because they haven’t heard this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
