Year 15 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour gets underway with a free-wheeling installment that has your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, demonstrating much of what they do best, tackling such a wide array of topics as fear, hypocrisy, and irony before sharing stories about non-celebrities being “mistaken” for famous show biz individuals. Some of these stories are hilarious. Some are disturbing. Some are both! With news of the Coen Brothers “breaking up”, Phil and Dean begin a deep dive into appreciating the brothers’ output and legacies. This includes hilarious stories involving Brad Pitt and George Clooney. It also includes a Coen-themed round of the Vintage Movie Ad game. Finally, Phil shares thoughts about two very interesting films released in 2020 that might have slipped under your radar and Dean offers up his review of a brand new film that Amazon hopes might launch an action-franchise starring the great Michael B. Jordan.
Energized and raring to go, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are all over the map and spanning the ages in this week’s installment, an episode that can best be summed up by two words: TIME TRAVEL.
You’ll see what we mean as Dean and Phil discuss Old Town Sacramento, Damanhur, Ray Bradbury, the Los Angeles Conservancy, Paper Moon, Boris Karloff, an elementary school graduation, Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys, Prometheus and MORE!
Oh, and if you haven’t heard enough of your friend in podcasting, Phil Leirness, or if you just want to get turned onto another really cool podcast, we hope you’ll check out “Getting Better Acquainted” hosted by David Pickering. Phil was the guest on Episode 60.
Finally, if you’re going to be in the Los Angeles area on June 23, we strongly encourage you to go see “David Dean Bottrell Makes Love”.
