Happy 2017, Everyone! Your friends in podcasting are prepared to get the New Year off to a great start with their traditional “New Year’s Resolutions” show … Every year, Dean and Phil provide episodes full of the insightful, the inspiring and the irreverent. Annually, one such episode you can count on for all of this is their traditional New Year’s Resolutions show. First, they hold their feet to the fire as they look back at the resolutions they made to start 2016 and then, they set their intentions for 2017. It’s bound to be a definite crowd-pleaser!
One of the reasons YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour can manage to be informational, insightful, irreverent and inspiring all within the same episode is because of the stories your friends in podcasting choose to tell. Here are just some of the stories told and topics explored on this week’s show …
The crazy travel itinerary Dean will endure in order to wish his father a Happy Birthday is revealed. The way language evolves to fit cultural needs and the ways changing grammar rules AND the International Olympic Chairman are making Phil feel like a “dinosaur” are detailed. A great jazz musician and a peerless recording engineer are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths.” Two of the summer movies previewed months ago – Southside with You and Weiner – are analyzed at length. The issues of trustworthiness, being a credible messenger and the importance of avoiding the appearance of impropriety get discussed. A nervous actor making his film acting debut and the director who turned that nervousness into an important part of a cinema classic is remembered in the shadow of that film’s 75th anniversary.
All that PLUS “What We’re Reading” (featuring a musical suprise), an update on Dean’s graphic novel and even more. Enjoy!

Happy New Decade! Welcome to a very special episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Every year, Dean and Phil have boldly proclaimed their New Year’s Resolutions.

When last we were “live” with Dean and Phil (from siptea in downtown Los Angeles), Dean was about to depart on a road trip to Vegas with total strangers. Now he has chestnut brown hair! Did this change have anything to do with that trip to Vegas? Or did it have to do with the recent election? Dean comes clean about his hair color. Meanwhile, Phil regales with stories of his recent east coast adventures and analyzes Dean’s box office prognostications on the fall cinematic releases. Dean and Phil also answer a question from their devoted listener, Erynn. Another question will be answered next week … So keep that feedback coming!
Way back at the start of 2008 (it was a more innocent time and we were all younger then), Dean and Phil came together for a special episode of the show.
They boldly proclaimed their New Year’s resolutions … Their creative/artistic/professional goals, plans and hopes for this year.
For some reason, Dean thought it would be fun to revisit those resolutions and see how he and Phil had done in making those resolutions a reality.
Phil wasn’t sure the word “fun” means what Dean thought it meant. Nevertheless, he agreeed … And then panic set in for both of them.
What were their resolutions? And how closely have they lived up to them?
Today, Dean and Phil put the heart in “From the Heart of Hollywood” with some recent good deeds. Dean reports back from his recent run in Winnipeg and his upcoming stint in the UK. Phil sets a new record for himself, and the virtues of old-school special effects are discussed. Plus, Phil is implicated by a mysterious party – listen and find out the juicy details!
