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 #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!
