Changing the way you listen to the internet since May of 2007!

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 #436

Well into their 9th year of changing the way people listen to the internet, your friends in podcasting keep finding new ways to do just that … This week, it’s a three-way Skype show with special (and frequent) guest Marc Hershon of Succotash. He joins Dean and Phil to discuss this weekend’s 4th annual Los Angeles Podfest and to review the podcasting documentary “Ear Buds”.

Before that, Phil rips the Emmys a new one for putting on such a boring show, while commending them for a few of their choices in honorees. Then, Dean champions a film by a female director that has stood the test of time. Phil lauds two recent independent films – one horror, one comedy – that you (yes, YOU) will absolutely love. That leads into their ongoing discussion on the art and commerce of supporting players, or “character actors”. Finally, Phil brings back the “Live Event of the Week” after seeing one of Dean’s favorite Broadway shows of recent years.

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!
