Chillpak Hollywood Hour #546

After several weeks of “pre-recorded” episodes, Dean and Phil hooked up via Skype to catch up on each other’s travels and to discuss the recent change in attitudes towards their unsettling dark comedy The Lady Killers. Prepare to be amazed by Dean’s adventures in Cambodia, where he painted, explored, and came down with a nifty bout of intestinal distress! Phil recounts his first ever trip to Las Vegas, his exploration of Utah, his challenges adjusting to the altitude of Aspen, Colorado, and the breathtaking, life-changing majesty of Monument Valley. He also regales with tales of “Portlandia” and “Twin Peaks” filming locations and describes the reception afforded their aforementioned movie at the Tri-Cities International Film Festival. In the wake of what seems to be a never-ending avalanche of news involving the appalling behavior of men, with their depiction of toxic masculinity, Dean and Phil have made a film one recent reviewer called, “exactly the kind of film we need right now.” All that, plus the cryptic advice Phil received on the road: “Life begins at Moab”. YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Buckle up and prepare for takeoff!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #512

“The Prisoner” (1967) has been called the most intelligent, thought-provoking entertainment series of all time and quite frankly, we think that is understating the show’s merits! This year marks the 50th Anniversary of that groundbreaking show’s debut and to commemorate the event, your friends in podcasting will welcome the organizer of the upcoming The Prisoner Con 2017 to discuss this incredible series, its production, its themes, its legacy. Even if you have never watched the series, have no fear, you will find this week’s show fascinating. We promise. And Phil sets the stage by putting the show, and its creator-star in historic context in a very special opening segment.

Be seeing you!
