On the eve of hitting the road to meet up in Dallas, your friends in podcasting got personal, to discuss all the things they are looking forward to in the coming months … Forthcoming investigations into ghosts, UFOs, Civil War History, the Kennedy assassination, Gullah Culture, get discussed … Forthcoming adventures, film festival screenings, art gallery showings and improv comedy venues in Los Angeles, the UK, the Pacific Northwest, and Melbourne, Australia get previewed … Hopes and fears surrounding “Blade Runner 2049″ are compared.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #417

Year 9 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begins with music, comedy and good conversation about diversity, live theatre, health, web series and the Washington Redskins (?!) with special guest Carolina Hoyos.

Simpson, Charleston, Detroit, Peter Falk, Tolstoy, history, Delta Airlines, Continental, Manchester Airport, immersive theatre, Premium seating, Transformers 3, Pirates 4, America vs. the world, Bridesmaids, Horrible Bosses, The Green Lantern, Super 8, Washington, D.C. … It’s action-packed, hilarious, irreverent and insightful Haglund and Leirness with a vengeance on this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #212

Knowing it’s their last new show together til the second Monday of July (don’t worry, we have 4 excellent pre-recorded shows with fabulous guests coming your way until then), your friends in podcasting are amped up and rarin’ to go with a rip-roaring hour of thick, rich, podcasty goodness! It’s the usual free-wheeling grab-bag, full of show business analysis, comedy, and inspirational conversation.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #176

It’s 112 degrees Fahrenheit at the offices of Rational Exuberance North, as we post this … No matter how hot it gets, and no matter how hot tempers get in Washington, D.C. where Stephen Colbert visited Congress, or in Hollywood, where the Screen Actors Guild held their annual elections, or in bankruptcy court where Blockbuster filed for Chapter 11, or on television, where “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” shines a bright light on the plight of hundreds of thousands of rape survivors who have to wait up to thirteen years to have their rape kit evidence tested … No matter how HOT … You can always enjoy the coolness of your Chillpak Hollywood Hour! Show business. The BUSINESS of show. The politics of running a business AND the politics of putting on a show. Dean and Phil touch ‘em all. Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #165

Nobly serving their countries (and the world) through fine pieces of podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness come out of the gates with guns blazing and hit you with this action-packed extravaganza. You won’t want to miss this one if you enjoy or care about any of the following: World Cup, the National Gallery (in D.C.), Monet, Manet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Leger, Toulouse-Lautrec, Diego Rivera, Renoir, the Library of Congress, Carl Jung, Thomas Jefferson, Virginia, The Homestead, Washington and Lee University.

Want Hollywood news and analysis? Dean and Phil tackle the controversies surrounding Roman Polanski, The Last Airbender, The Incredible Hulk, and James Bond. They analyze the recent Emmy nominations for excellence in television, heaping cheers and/or jeers onto “Mad Men”, “Breaking Bad”, “Lost”, “Glee”, “Modern Family” and Conan O’Brien. They offer exciting remake news and answer a listener question about television directors. It is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all, and that’s why they discuss a VERY interesting email sent to them by a listener concerning “simulated realities”. Finally, your friends in podcasting discuss the books they’ve been reading and offer a strong book recommendation from a loyal listener.

Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’ve already heard the show once and we can’t wait to listen to it again!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #86

Phil just got back from rubbing elbows with the D.C. social set. Dean stayed in town and hit a Hollywood party and hit it hard based on the stories he shares (Fran Drescher? Poop? Three bottles of champagne?). In addition to comparing notes on their holiday hijinx, Dean and Phil discuss the many films they’ve seen during the past two weeks. Phil saw several foreign language films, including a couple of fantastic ones you won’t want to miss. Dean reveals he saw The Spirit. This makes Phil very angry. Truth be told, though, from the Screen Actors Guild to Proposition 8, from people not knowing history to Dean’s viewing habits, Phil really comes out swinging … The boys are back and 2009 can finally begin!
