Chillpak Hollywood Hour #509

After an opening segment where Phil discusses John Wick: Chapter 2 with Chad Osuna of Fanboy Nation and “The Popcorn Podcast”, Dean joins the fun for a free-wheeling discussion of silent films, autism, Canadian animation, what actors should expect from directors, the Oscar nominations, female-driven films and more!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #505

Your friends in podcasting celebrate the life of the woman who broke the news about the start of World War II and the life of a man who redefined literary and cinematic terror (and turned a certain staircase in Georgetown into a major tourist attraction). Then, after sharing some thoughts about a childhood friend who died this past week, Phil follows up on last week’s show by sharing with Dean some thoughts about “Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds” and sharing a story about how George Michael (and Wham!) helped inspire one of the most famous songs by The Smiths. There will also be much discussion of television, from the return of “Sherlock” and the news surrounding “The Man in the High Castle” to the Producers Guild Award nominations and a forthcoming show set backstage at “The Tonight Show” in the 1970′s. Finally, Phil gets on his soapbox as he and Dean address the controversy surrounding Meryl Streep’s speech at the Golden Globes and the overwhelming accolades being bestowed upon La La Land. All that, plus a frank discussion about “perceived vegetative states” AND a ton of laughs on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Two old pals of Dean Haglund’s stop by a certain “historic building in downtown Los Angeles”, two pals that Phil met not too long ago via the airwaves of Siren FM’s “Midweek Drive” in the UK!

Sam Stone is an award-winning and exceedingly popular author and David J. Howe, her publisher and partner in life. They join your friends in podcasting for a free-wheeling hour full of hilarious and touching discussions about books, writing, publishing, music, family, steampunk, Dr. Who, fan conventions and building community.

Enjoy nourishing, entertaining conversation? You’ve come to the right place. This is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #345

Let’s not kid ourselves … The holidays are never easy. And putting together this week’s episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour was particularly trying …

In fact, after an hour-long Skype-based conversation with their trans-Atlantic guest, Alex Lewczuk, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, were shocked to discover that almost none of it was recorded!

So, they just kept talking … Without starting over! If it seems a little bit like joining a conversation in the middle, well … that’s EXACTLY what it IS! It’s a fun, free-wheeling conversation, however, about such a wide range of topics as ageism in the media, science-fiction, academia, Roman settlements, ancient cathedrals, Christmas markets … and more!

Those of you familiar with Phil’s extra-curricular activities know that he is a regular contributor to Alex Lewczuk’s Midweek Drive program(me) for Siren FM and Southside Broadcasting in the UK. You also might remember hearing Alex as part of the 28 hour Mayan podcastathon Dean and Phil conducted last year at this time.

Though, it lacks structure, due to the structure not being recorded, this week’s show is sure to stuff your stocking with audio good cheer. The elves at Rational Exuberance have edited together several holiday-themed goodies for inclusion in this week’s show – another way in which its like no other episode you’ve heard!

Happy Holidays, one and all!
