Chillpak Hollywood Hour #220

Your Chillpak Hollywood Hour has been graced by the presence of fantastic guests all summer long and this week’s installment is an incredible first, featuring THREE guests on one show!

Regular listeners to the show will remember the lovely, talented, funny and engaging Catherine Annette. She’s back and she brought along her best friend, the hilarious and infectiously enthusiastic Madison Dylan.

Catherine and Madison both acted with your friend in podcasting, Dean Haglund, on the “Girls Gone Dead” episode of this year’s Cinemax sensation Femme Fatales.

Joining Catherine and Madison on this week’s show is Femme Fatales co-creator and executive producer Mark A. Altman, and Phil Leirness could not be more thrilled. You see, Mark was once one of the preeminent entertainment journalists in the business before becoming a truly exciting independent filmmaker (writing and producing one of Phil’s favorite indies of the ’90′s, the spectacular Free Enterprise). And now, of course, he is a television producer and writer, whose credits before Femme Fatales included Castle and Necessary Roughness.

Television, movies, entertainment journalism, swordplay, comic-con, William Shatner … A lot will be discussed on this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

To learn more about Femme Fatales, please visit the show’s Official Site.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #169

A brand new show full of the engaging, free-wheeling analysis and discussion you’ve come to expect from the “Thelma and Louise of podcasting”.

Dean discusses his trip to Puerto Rico, including making friends with a big-wig in TSA. He also previews his trip to Las Vegas for the annual “Star Trek” convention (the largest in the world!). Phil describes some of the ways he’s becoming Dean Haglund – Seeing the opera “Carmen” at the Hollywood Bowl and taking an interest in the Impro Theatre Los Angeles, home of L.A. Theatre Sports.

Then, Dean and Phil delve into the latest, most intriguing show business news, starting with “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”, the entire Millennium trilogy, the forthcoming American remakes, and Noomi Rapace (lead actress in the European productions), as well as the lawsuits surrounding the as-yet-unreleased fourth book by Stieg Larsson. They follow that up with an analysis of the new television series “Aftermath with William Shatner” (where the former Captain Kirk, T.J. Hooker, and Denny Crane tackles controversial interview subjects starting with the Subway Vigilante).

Plus full reports on what movies Dean and Phil have seen. It’s all this week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
