From upstate New York to Melbourne, Australia, from Salem, Oregon to the historic core of downtown Los Angeles, your friends in podcasting are off and running from the opening bell in this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
From art shows to movie screenings, from sociopaths to workplace morale, from lawsuits to political protests, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have a lot on their minds and a lot to cover and they discuss it all with their usual irreverence, insight and inspiring, thought-provoking conversation.
Movies, movies and more movies … From the death of Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor, to the 2008 big-screen installment of The X-Files, from upcoming release The Conspirator, to recent releases Cedar Rapids, Jane Eyre and Win Win, from classic films like The Boston Strangler and Heavenly Creatures, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have all matters cinematic covered.
They even reveal the long-awaited details surrounding the World Premiere of their film The Truth Is Out There in London!
Back in January of 2010, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, were in Canada shooting footage for TWO projects: THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE (a documentary about the world of conspiracy) and HELL GIGS (about a return to Dean’s roots as a comic).
While in Vancouver, they got together with Dean’s good friends Bruce Harwood and Tom Braidwood to record this week’s show. For those listeners who were not fans of The X-Files, Dean, Bruce and Tom played (respectively) Richard “Ringo” Langly, John Fitzgerald Byers and Melvin Frohike. Collectively, those characters are known to millions of fans the world over as “The Lone Gunmen”, conspiracy theorists, computer hackers, government watchdogs and publishers of The Magic Bullet newsletter, who aided agents Mulder and Scully through nine years of investigations and who were featured in their very own spin-off series.
This episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour has become a classic. And it’s available again for the first time in almost two years.
Vince Gilligan spent Sunday night at the Emmy Awards, where his Breaking Bad leading man, Bryan Cranston, won the award for Best Actor in a Drama Series (for the second year in a row!). Today, Vince Gilligan, creator of the series (as well as a hugely admired writer-producer of films like Hancock and television series like The X-Files), is back with Dean and Phil for part two of their conversation. Also, Phil shares with Dean an idea for a film-making symposium he would like to bring to fan conventions. Is this too much for one show? Nah. In fact, it’s as simple as (Chillpak Hollywood Hour) 1-2-3 …
Dean and Phil begin this week’s show by wrapping up DragonCon, sharing some of their more bizarre, amusing and inspiring experiences. They then welcome a very special guest for the first part of a two-part interview. Vince Gilligan was one of the most prolific and respected writers and producers on The X-Files (as well as its spin-off series, The Lone Gunmen). He wrote the motion pictures Wilder Napalm, Home Fries and Hancock. Now, he’s earning great accolades for his work on the AMC original series Breaking Bad, which he created.
That’s a hell of a lot of show for one hour, but what do you expect? This IS your Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all!
