Phil has been chasing trains all over California and he has stories. St. Patrick’s Day was this past week and Dean and Phil have jokes about that. In “Celebrity Deaths”, Oscar-winning actor William Hurt gets remembered and the controversy surrounding celebrations of his legacy will get examined. Star of the original “Godzilla” and a great story about him get discussed, and before the Chillpak Morgue closes, R&B great Timmy Thomas has his praises sung. This is, of course, the biggest week in Hollywood and Dean and Phil “go to the movies” to discuss Steven Spielberg’s next film (a sequel to a 1960s classic), the brilliance and pain and artistry of Richard Pryor as seen in Richard Pryor Live on the Sunset Strip and the inspiring visual storytelling on display in the works of Paolo Sorrentino, specifically his current Oscar nominee for Best International Film, The Hand of God.
Next week, your friends in podcasting will be back doing what they do best, trying to make sense of the world through insight, inspiration and irreverence. Because they are both still on the road, however, THIS week’s episode is another aural pastiche …
Lily Holleman joins Phil to discuss Route 66, her new movie, the return of “Twin Peaks” and what it was like to befriend The Lone Gunmen in Dallas. And speaking of The Lone Gunmen (in Dallas), the 2nd half of the show is a panel discussion, where Dean, Tom and Bruce answer questions from a moderator and from an audience.
A show ten years in the making …
The tenth “Top Ten” show of year ten …

On Sunday, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, were in Portland, Oregon for an event commemorating the 10th Anniversary of 9/11. While their film The Truth is Out There played inside the Bing Lounge, Dean and Phil sat in the PacWest Center green room with the host of the evening, Clyde Lewis, to record this week’s show.
Clyde Lewis is the fantastic host of the extremely popular “Ground Zero” which airs on KXL News Radio in Portland and which streams on www.GroundZeroMedia.org (where you can also find podcasts of Clyde’s past shows INCLUDING this past Thursday’s show, on which Phil was the guest, and Sunday’s show in front of a live audience, on which Dean was the guest).
How will we view the events of 9/11 2001 as we move forward? Will there ever be a true criminal investigation of those events? Will Dean and Phil change the name of their weekly podcast to “Bag Full of Rainbows”?
Find out the answer to these burning questions and many many more on this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
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!
