Chillpak Hollywood Hour #580

After a special 2-part “Top Ten” show counting down the all-time great comedy movies, your friends in podcasting are back with a wide array of topics to discuss. Dean recounts his New Zealand adventures and previews his forthcoming trip to the USA. He and Phil celebrate the lives of the cat-loving gorilla with the huge vocabulary, the original Bond girl, and the celebrity chef who finds himself the subject of a conspiracy theory. Two emails from a loyal listener concerning the aforementioned “Top Ten” shows lead to a couple of great filmmaking stories and the discussion of another all-time great comedy film. Dean and Phil’s former collaborator, Chris Hardwick, has found himself in #MeToo hot water, and because they have been asked about it, Dean and Phil discuss it. There is a lot of “Star Trek” news to discuss, a slew of Netflix Marvel shows to review, as well as a popular HBO drama series based on an Australian-set novel to analyze. All that AND several recent cinematic releases get reviewed, including Solo, The Incredibles 2 and Isle of Dogs.

The show starts with two “Live Events of the Week” before the opening theme song even plays! Dean tells tales of hanging out in Melbourne with Lou Diamond Phillips and Peter Shinkoda, then Phil gives a history lesson on a bright light in the 1930′s progressive movement in L.A., as well as a re-opened and re-modeled SoCal cultural icon.

After the opening, your friends in podcasting discuss a “Lawsuit of the Week” where theatre actors are suing their own union and a Federal investigation into claims that women filmmakers are being discriminated against in Hollywood.

Then, movies and television shows get reviewed and discussed, including the documentary “Merchants of Doubt”, the current releases “Room” and “Spotlight”, the films of Fritz Lang, new television series “Quantico”, “Grandfathered” and “The Grinder”, and the new season of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”. After that, Dean and Phil iscuss an email from a loyal listener about how “good” television might be standing in the way of “great television” (and whether this might be true of movies as well). Then, it’s an absolute information dump as dozens of big-screen and small-screen adaptations, remakes, reboots and revivals are previewed and debated. “Men in Black”, “The Watchmen”, “Die Hard”, “Roots”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “Twin Peaks”, “Hart to Hart”, “Flatliners”, “Lethal Weapon”, “John Wick” and “The A-Team” are only some of the titles that will get discussed.

This one should be called YOUR Chillpak Hollywood 70 Minutes!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #311

Next week, your friends in podcasting celebrate six years of changing the way people listen to the internet. THIS week, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness welcome their final guest of year six …

The beautiful, talented and genuinely odd Stephanie Erb made her big-screen debut for legendary director Peter Weir in Fearless and has appeared in such films as Starship Troopers, The Ring and Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny. Stephanie made her television debut on Star Trek: The Next Generation and has since played recurring roles on such series as Weeds, 24, Freaks and Geeks, Port Charles and True Blood.

She is a frequent contributor to Ethan Dettenmaier’s Combat Radio and will soon be appearing in Dean and Phil’s new movie The Lady Killers.

And what about those rumors that Miss Erb may someday be replacing Phil Leirness as co-host of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour?

Listen and find out!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #280

Three guests AND two guest co-hosts join Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness this week to take on show business from all angles …

As Dean revealed on last week’s show, he will be acting in a new series. “Space Command” boasts a who’s who of sci-fi in its cast and is the brain child of acclaimed and prolific writer Marc Scott Zicree. Hear all about the project and Marc’s previous work (including various versions of “Star Trek” AND The Twilight Zone Companion), as he joins your friends in podcasting AND Combat Radio‘s Ethan Dettenmaier.

Then, just when you think this week’s show couldn’t get any more cool, the topic switches from behind the camera success to a stunning starlet, as Phil joins actor and author Mark Ryan to interview the luminous Cerina Vincent, star of such movies Cabin Fever, Not Another Teen Movie and the forthcoming MoniKa, as well as the co-author of the books How to Eat Like a Hot Chick and How to Love Like a Hot Chick. Trust us, Cerina is as refreshing a personality as you could hope to meet and the conversation is rather hilarious.

Finally, as if that weren’t enough, the subject turns to entertainment journalism with Robert Samo, who founded the site Fanboy Nation.

It’s a star-studded, all-hands on deck assault on your ears, hearts and funny-bones! It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all …

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #262

This week’s show is all about embracing the unknown, and as such, it probably started over on Combat Radio (on Friday 18 May), where YOUR friends in podcasting interviewed noted physicist (and regular contributor to Ancient Aliens), Mike Dennin about the frontiers of science. You can listen to that show HERE.

Back on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness carry on with the theme, discussing the unknown in a variety of different arenas …

The mystery (involving the dog star Sirius, the Kinights Templar, Mary Magdalene and a cheeky 13th century Imp) of the Lincoln Cathedral …

What Barry Diller’s Aereo portends for the future (or lack thereof) of television …

The foreign control of U.S. media …

The power of social networking …

The inner workings of Rupert Murdoch’s international empire …

And SO MUCH more, including a “Lawsuit of the Week” that involves a group finally embracing the unknown and “Celebrity Deaths”.

Enjoy all the great tasted you’ve come to expect for a hearty and delicious helping of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
