Chillpak Hollywood Hour #303

Dean’s heading out of town to “save” a bad horror film by turning it into a comedy. That fact leads to a discussion about … Newfoundland?

Phil’s editing a film and that leads to a discussion of … The overture to Star Trek: The Motion Picture?

This week’s episode goes in many unexpected directions, from discussions of two other podcasts (Marc Hershon’s “Succotash” and David Pickering’s “Getting Better Acquainted) to a play about hoarding, from a remembrance of Bonnie Franklin to Dean and Phil’s idea for a very interesting awards show.

All that, plus, Dean and Phil really put the “your” into YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, wishing one loyal listener a happy birthday, answering one question from a listener about Argo and reading another listener’s email about the SyFy channel.
