Chillpak Hollywood Hour #543

Full disclosure: This week’s episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is an absolute epic, recorded LAST weekend. So, you won’t hear Dean and Phil weighing in on the Las Vegas tragedy, on the death of Tom Petty, nor on any other events of the week. Instead, your friends in podcasting fill the show’s 80 minute running time by discussing the conclusion of Dean’s month-long pop-up comedy venue in Sydney, a terrific close-up magic show in Downtown Los Angeles, the recent spate of protests by NFL players, the cancer diagnosis of Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, the sexual assault allegations against film critic Harry Knowles, several new and recent movie releases (including “It”, “Victoria & Abdul” and “The Florida Project”). That would be, and was, enough for one whole hour … AND THEN, Dean and Phil celebrate the lives of a record number of persons in “Celebrity Deaths”, including a soul singer who didn’t start recording until age 62, a publishing magnate responsible for Donald Trump’s “The Art of the Deal”, a former UCLA Film School Dean who was responsible for Americans scaling Everest, the boxing champ whose life inspired an Oscar-winning movie, an actor-athlete-poet-painter who played James Bond’s CIA pal Felix Leiter, a Winnipeg-born giant of TV game shows, and a half dozen more!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #342

Thanksgiving, Birthdays, live events and what they’re reading are first on the docket for your friends in podcasting to discuss.

Then it’s onto a free-for all analysis of sequels, remakes, Hunger Games, Leonardo DiCaprio, a Broadway adaptation and a few Oscar hopefuls.

Finally, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness remember an improv comedy great, a young leading man, an animation heiress, a screenwriting guru and a publishing titan.

Happy December! It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …
