Chillpak Hollywood Hour #511

The 7th of ten planned “Top Ten” shows your friends in podcasting are doing to commemorate Year 10 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is one of their most personal and unusual shows of the year … Back when they were shooting their epic documentary The Truth Is Out There, someone asked Phil whether he and Dean do the podcast to promote their movies, or whether they make movies to promote their podcast. Phil found amusing the assumption that promotion MUST be a part of what he and Dean were doing and yet found the question an interesting one. Almost six years since the World Premiere of that film, which is truly equal parts comedy, consciousness and conspiracy, it is apparent that what motivates them to keep making films is the same thing that motivates them to keep doing this show: A desire to engage in conversation. Join them this week, as they take a look back at “TRUTH” and count down the top ten things that strike them now when watching their prescient, disturbing, moving and truly funny documentary. Even if you haven’t seen the movie, you will find the discussion about it inspiring, insightful, irreverent. It is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #507

Listeners new to the show might be surprised to learn that there was a time when Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness might go weeks without needing to discuss “celebrity deaths.” Clearly, those days are long gone. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective), beyond a cursory tribute, your friends in podcasting will have to wait at least a week to celebrate the lives of Mary Tyler Moore, Mike Connors, Gorden Kaye and John Hurt (are we forgetting anybody? No? Don’t worry, by next week, there will no doubt be more!). THIS WEEK, Dean and Phil will celebrate the best in movies for the year that was as they count down their Top Ten Best Films of 2016.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #283

Is it all a German dream, or is it just the latest installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour?

Whatever it is, your friends in podcasting will change the way you listen to the internet as they tackle such topics as quantum mechanics, Louis CK, Madonna, plastic surgery, dead actors and chamber music. And somehow, almost all of it happens while Dean and Phil talk about such movies as Cloud Atlas, Argo, John Carter, The Paperboy, Skyfall and their friend Alan Piper’s Married and Counting!

All that, plus the most awkward turn-of-phrase ever uttered on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #76

Filmmaker James Kerwin spends the hour with Dean and Phil, taking us through the entire process of making his feature film Yesterday Was a Lie. From the concept stage, casting, pre-production, camera tests … All the way through adventures on the film festival circuit, it’s a fascinating hour for anyone interested in film, filmmaking, or just good conversation.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #17

The original description of this show from 27 August 2007 (back when we were called “From the Heart of Hollywood”):

“From the Heart of Hollywood’s Super Summer continues, this time with a special guest! In fact, it’s FTHOH’s first ever guest! Listen!”

That guest was Philip Newby, a brilliant actor, and a tremendously funny and engaging man who killed himself in January 2009.

About the show
Dean Haglund, the actor, improv comic and inventor (best known as “Langly,” one of the three computer-hacking geeks on “The X-Files” and their spin-off series “The Lone Gunmen”) engages in thought-provoking, insightful, and irreverent cultural conversation with his co-host and producing partner, independent filmmaker and certified violence prevention specialist Phil Leirness in the production offices of Rational Exuberance. Warning: Dean and Phil's usually hilarious and frequently inspiring discussions are habit-forming, so please, enjoy responsibly!
