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?

This week, your friends in podcasting welcome two special guests in their first ever show dedicated to a Chillpak Hollywood “Live Event of the Week” …
French Stewart is a marvelous actor, best known for his role as “Harry Solomon” on 3rd Rock From the Sun, and he is at the top of his game playing silent screen icon Buster Keaton in a new show at the Sacred Fools Theatre in Los Angeles. Jaime Robledo, his director in the show, is one of the most gifted, most innovative talents working in theatre today. They both join Dean and Phil for an irreverent, hilarious, insightful and emotionally moving hour.
To learn more about Stoneface: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Buster Keaton, please visit the show’s Official Site.
Dean Haglund is in Pennsylvania. Phil Leirness is in the UK. Yet, through the magic of podcasting, they are together in a “historic building in downtown Los Angeles”, where they welcome two special guests from London.
John Kay Steel is a talented and accomplished actor and voice artist.
Natalie Haverstock is a gifted improv comic and the most amazing balloon artist in all the known universe!
Sit back and enjoy one of the most unusual episodes yet of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour … Oh, and make sure to check out this video of Dean in his scuba diving gear made of balloons.
Wow. This week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is one for the vaults. There’s something for everyone, especially if you love good stories and insightful, hilarious and inspiring conversation.
Your friends in podcasting discuss the SAG-AFTRA merger, doing what you love, loving what you do, the cool history of the Pickfair studio, Phil’s atrocious handwriting, the conspiracy theory surrounding The Hunger Games, a lawsuit against an award-winning playwright and another lawsuit against the worst filmmaker of all time.
Finally, Dean and Phil tell the legend of Edmund Kean’s sword and debate how Laurence Olivier’s failure to pass that sword on either represents the way knowledge is lost or the way that knowledge is never forgotten!
From artists and actors who have committed crimes to movie studios and authors’ estates suing each other, this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is full of show people behaving badly. Not YOUR friends in podcasting, of course. Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are on their best behavior, discussing such a wide range of topics as …
The inspiration that can be drawn from a man like John Adams when dealing with issues like the proposed SAG-Aftra merger …
The storytelling AND marketing failures of John Carter …
More on the state of romantic comedies …
The lack of demand for any new books, movies or television shows and what that lack of demand might mean to storytellers and conglomerates …
And after all that, if you still haven’t had enough of your friends in podcasting, please enjoy their appearance on 16 March’s Combat Radio (you’ll learn why Dean is on “double-secret probation”).
Because Dean Haglund is packing up for Galaxy Fest in Colorado Springs, Colorado (to perform comedy and show The Truth Is Out There), and Phil Leirness is hitting the road for the 2012 International UFO Congress in Fountain Hills, Arizona (where the TRUTH is also screening), this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is coming to you a few hours later than we like.
It is, however, one of our very best shows!
That it’s President’s Day in the U.S. leads to a discussion of presidential UFO lore, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Lucille Ball and Merv Griffin. The special friendship between The UK’s “The Midweek Drive” and YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, leads to a discussion of Phil’s pajamas and his forthcoming tour of the UK. The book The Wayfinders leads to a discussion of cultural relativism, the biosphere, the ethnosphere, the living history of Los Angeles, and Dreamtime and The Dream Factory. An Albert Einstein quote leads to a discussion of the intuitive mind and the rational mind and the way we might move beyond divisiveness in an effort to address the common challenges facing us all. The Chillpak Hollywood Live Event of the Week leads to a discussion of Phil’s admiration for an actress he had never before seen, the best director working in theatre today, and the way storytellers strengths in one medium can serve as weakness in another.
All that, plus TWO Chillpak Hollywood Lawsuits of the Week (the one involving Chris Pine, “Captain Kirk” from JJ Abrams’ re-booth of Star Trek is a paticular hoot.
Your friends in podcasting definitely brought their “A” game. We hope you will enjoy it enough to share it with others …
