Chillpak Hollywood Hour #432

Your friends in podcasting return with another action-packed installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, keeping hot drinks hot and cool drinks cool through irreverent, insightful and occasionally inspiring conversation. On this week’s show, Yvonne (“Batgirl”) Craig is remembered, two new movie releases are reviewed, a great actor from the Golden Age of Hollywood (and beyond) is celebrated, the art of acting, (and what makes “great” acting) is delved into, and the results of the recent actors’ union election are pored over. Meanwhile, fatigue over the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems to be spreading to … Marvel Studios itself! Longtime listeners know that the issue of diversity is never far from the minds or creative impulses of Phil Leirness and Dean Haglund and on this week’s show they applaud the revival of “The X-Files” for embracing diversity and discuss several actors new to the show’s cast. All that, plus three new television series are reviewed and one just announced new show is previewed.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #281

The month just ended (September 2012) saw the most downloads of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour since the show went independent in January of 2011 and your friends in podcasting celebrate this news with perhaps the most hilarious opening they’ve ever had!

Even when the irreverence ends, the jokes and witty bon mots continue in full effect as Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness take on (or revisit) such topics as Catholic weddings, fluoridation of water, Monsanto’s House of the Future, educational institutions, corporate culture, government bureaucracies, a murder mystery in Phil’s neighborhood of Los Feliz, celebrity deaths, emails from listeners and a wide range of films dealing with mental health issues.

And remember, The Truth Is Out There is now out there on BLU-RAY!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #165

Nobly serving their countries (and the world) through fine pieces of podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness come out of the gates with guns blazing and hit you with this action-packed extravaganza. You won’t want to miss this one if you enjoy or care about any of the following: World Cup, the National Gallery (in D.C.), Monet, Manet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Leger, Toulouse-Lautrec, Diego Rivera, Renoir, the Library of Congress, Carl Jung, Thomas Jefferson, Virginia, The Homestead, Washington and Lee University.

Want Hollywood news and analysis? Dean and Phil tackle the controversies surrounding Roman Polanski, The Last Airbender, The Incredible Hulk, and James Bond. They analyze the recent Emmy nominations for excellence in television, heaping cheers and/or jeers onto “Mad Men”, “Breaking Bad”, “Lost”, “Glee”, “Modern Family” and Conan O’Brien. They offer exciting remake news and answer a listener question about television directors. It is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all, and that’s why they discuss a VERY interesting email sent to them by a listener concerning “simulated realities”. Finally, your friends in podcasting discuss the books they’ve been reading and offer a strong book recommendation from a loyal listener.

Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’ve already heard the show once and we can’t wait to listen to it again!
