Chillpak Hollywood Hour #533

On this week’s show, Dean Haglund is back home in Sydney, Australia, and Phil Leirness is safely ensconced in his beloved Los Feliz, Los Angeles neighborhood. They come together through the magic of podcasting (armed with that old “skype hiss”) to discuss: Dean’s travels, and birthday; Phil’s final (?) interview for part 2 of “The Truth is Out There”, the latest episode of his “The Los Angeles Breakfast Club: ON THE AIR” podcast, and the life and legacy of Will Rogers; The lives and careers of a beloved character actor and a peerless voice performer; the films of Alfred Hitchcock and Clint Eastwood, a silent classic, and such recent releases as Spider-Man Homecoming and War for the Planet of the Apes; All that, plus what Dean and Phil are reading!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #253

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”).

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #185

If you have only recently joined the internet madness that is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, you might not recognize the name “David Sobolov”. You will almost certainly recognize the VOICE, however. David Sobolov is one of the most recognizable, most sought-after, and dare we say, most TALENTED voice actors in the business. He also becomes the FIRST EVER 3-time Chillpak Hollywood Hour guest!

On CHH #30 & CHH #48, David came on board to share his insights and expertise as a politically active working actor, to discuss the politics of show business in general and the specifics of the negotiations between the actors unions and producers and the in-fighting within and between the two different actors’ unions. This week, Dean and Phil finally bring back David to share his stories and insights into the business and craft of voice-acting, to share his unique and uniquely inspiring and informative path into and through show business.

Great story-telling and a great guest this week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. And if you haven’t seen it, be sure to check out Phil’s guest appearance on the ActotrsE Chat Show!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #48

This week, Dean and Phil are joined by their good friend David Sobolov to discuss the complexities and absurdities of show biz unions. And of course, there’s lots of good stories and trash talkin’.


Chillpak Hollywood Hour #30

The big 3-0! Today Dean and Phil are joined by David Sobolov, actor and former SAG board member, to throw around some ideas about the future of entertainment, which is looking bleaker with each passing day (writer’s strike, you know how it goes).

We’re being plagued with technical difficulties, however, so please accept our apologies for the sound this week, just pretend it’s a call-in show with no host. Actually, it feels like you’re listening in on a Hollywood conference call. You’ll feel like a super spy just for listening!

About the show
