Chillpak Hollywood Hour #526

This week’s episode spans some serious ground both thematically and geographically. In the USA’s capital, Phil Leirness recorded a very special (and hilarious) opening, before traveling to Baltimore to interview great friend of the show Page Branson, an artist, illustrator and podcast host. Then, it’s off to Brooklyn for a chat with the writer/performer of more than one Chillpak Hollywood Hour theme song, Mr. Jon Lawlor. Then, it’s back to Dallas for some improv comedy courtesy of your friend in podcasting, Mr. Dean Haglund.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #500

YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour turns 500 episodes old this week and your friends in podcasting celebrate this august milestone with one of their most bizarre shows ever, and it’s truly an episode where everyone is dying to get in … You see, after meeting up at a certain historic building in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles to discuss such topics as a recent Guillermo del Toro exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Dean’s art work AND Dean’s long-awaited graphic novel, Dean and Phil go on a field trip to Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, one of the most unusual cemeteries in all the world! Never mind their usual segment “Celebrity Deaths”, in this episode your friends in podcasting celebrate death itself! Sound odd enough for you?

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #497

Dean is travelling, so he and Phil won’t be able to celebrate the lives of a couple amazing women who died this past week until they get together in L.A. to record several shows this week. In the meantime, they pre-recorded this, their third “Top Ten” show of the ten they have planned to commemorate year ten of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. This week, in anticipation of La La Land opening, your friends in podcasting count down their Top Ten All-Time Favorite Movie Musicals! This episode has it all: Singing, dancing, comedy, romance AND the firestorm of a great debate as Dean and Phil get into a heated, and hilarious, argument over the merits of Baz Luhrman and his post-”Moulin Rouge” career. It’s 80 minutes of podcasty goodness featuring some of the greatest talents to grace the silver screen!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #417

Year 9 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begins with music, comedy and good conversation about diversity, live theatre, health, web series and the Washington Redskins (?!) with special guest Carolina Hoyos.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #385

What is 70 minutes long, was recorded LIVE at BottleRock in downtown Los Angeles and boasts appearances by Lily Holleman, Robbie Consing, Matt Doherty, Erynn Petrulis, Pete Handelman, Alanna Vicente, Shaun Parker, Burt Bulos, Jake Head, Ilana Rein, Marc Hershon of Succotash and both Page Branson and J.D. Jackson of Level 7 Access: A Marvel Agents of Shield Podcast? Why, it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, of course, also featuring a live appearance from show announcer Garrard Whatley!

We apologize for the occasional (semi-regular?) audio glitches during the show – Phil was playing hurt, Dean was drinking wine, there was a party going on … And we’re sure despite these glitches (because of them?) this episode will help get your week off to a great start!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #185

If you have only recently joined the internet madness that is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, you might not recognize the name “David Sobolov”. You will almost certainly recognize the VOICE, however. David Sobolov is one of the most recognizable, most sought-after, and dare we say, most TALENTED voice actors in the business. He also becomes the FIRST EVER 3-time Chillpak Hollywood Hour guest!

On CHH #30 & CHH #48, David came on board to share his insights and expertise as a politically active working actor, to discuss the politics of show business in general and the specifics of the negotiations between the actors unions and producers and the in-fighting within and between the two different actors’ unions. This week, Dean and Phil finally bring back David to share his stories and insights into the business and craft of voice-acting, to share his unique and uniquely inspiring and informative path into and through show business.

Great story-telling and a great guest this week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. And if you haven’t seen it, be sure to check out Phil’s guest appearance on the ActotrsE Chat Show!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #112

After their special two-part theme show, Dean and Phil are back, trying to make sense of a world gone wild.

Phil was in South Carolina during the mysterious disappearance (and tumultuous reappearance) of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. On this week’s show, Dean and Phil analyze what seems to be a growing trend of men with self-destructive principles reaching the summit of power before absolutely annihilating their own standing.

Dean and Phil offer farewells and some perspective on the recently deceased Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Joseph Jackson and even … Fred Travalena?! Truly, the 1970’s are over …

During our two-week break from covering the business of show, two show business controversies have erupted. Dean and Phil will tackle them both. The first involves some wild rule and format changes for the Academy Awards. The second involves the fear surrounding Sacha Baron Cohen’s Bruno. This last topic is particularly in Dean’s wheelhouse, as it focuses on issues of both freedom of expression AND the responsibility of the performer.

Get ready to put this one in a time capsule, or at least send it to NPR and Satellite Radio as an audition, this one’s gonna be good!
