Chillpak Hollywood Hour #462

This week: Updates on Dean Haglund’s forthcoming performances at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, on his graphic novel (sounds like there’s been progress), on a play he has been writing for decades (!) and on the book he recently had published!

This week: Phil offers a “mea culpa” to the makers of the new episodic “Star Trek”, he marvels at some of the great on-screen friendships, he ruminates on the differences between filmmakers, artists and geniuses, he champions (once again), the Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!, he asks Dean about bitcoins, he weighs in on a “Live Event of the Week” and he and Dean remember three individuals in “Celebrity Deaths”.

Every week: Your friends in podcasting change the way you listen to the internet!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #377

Even after more than 7 years of changing the way you listen to the internet, your friends in podcasting are still able to bring you an unusual episode, even by their own admittedly unusual standards!

This week’s show is quite the grab-bag …

It all starts with longtime listener (and key collaborator in The Lady Killers) Shaun Parker telling an amazing true story about his quest to deliver home-made candy to Robert Redford.

Then, Dean interviews his old pal, writer, sketch comic and comic book creator Ian Boothby and Ian’s wife, artist and comic book creator Pia Guerra. They all talk San Diego Comic-Con.

Finally, Phil returns to discuss several movies with Dean.

Something for everyone? We like to think so! Enjoy.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #348

What other show covers such a range of topics as cognitive dissonance, psychogenic fugue states, memory, time travel, the Golden Globes, San Diego Comic-Con, California small claims court and the remains of ancient civilizations in the Amazon?

It’s just another hour in the office for Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #324

It’s Dean Haglund’s birthday and in honor of the occasion, he and Phil Leirness deliver one of their most free-wheeling, diverse shows yet …

Your friends in podcasting discuss autographs, Comic-Con, UFO cults, Asian airlines suing for slander, the 20th Anniversary of The X-Files, Leonard Maltin, Space Command, Femme Fatales, Cory Monteith, Dennis Farina, 56 Up, The Conjuring, Blue Jasmine and much, much more …

In fact, Paul Weller drops by with a musical birthday greeting for Dean and Phil surprises Dean with an audio snippet of the Comic-Con panel featuring Chris Carter and Gillian Anderson that Dean moderated!

Wondering what to give Dean Haglund for his birthday? Why not help him produce his new film The Lady Killers? Every single donation makes a big difference.

Now enjoy, a special birthday installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #322

Maybe it’s because this show was recorded on Sunday, rather than Monday, but this is one of the most unusual episodes of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour in a while … Hilarious … And unusual.

Consider that your friends in podcasting take on such a wide range of topics as the death of a “Glee” star, spooky Vancouver hotels, the price of heroin in Canada, the Trayvon Martin trial, the top ten most successful stand-up comics working today, San Diego Comic-Con, season ten of “The X-Files”, the sanity of conspiracy theorists vs. the sanity of those who believe official versions of history, the intern revolt in the entertainment industry and the boycott against the film version of Ender’s Game.

All that, plus a special movie theme tune keeps finding its way into the mix.

Finally, if you are going to be in San Diego this week, make sure to stop by ParanoiaCon to meet Dean and Phil and see their film THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE.

Now, sit back, relax and enjoy 64 minutes that will change the way you listen to the internet!
