After 12 and a half years of “changing the way people listen to the internet”, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness bring YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour to ODYSY Radio for “season 2” of their long-running show! On this week’s maiden ODYSY voyage, your friends in podcasting re-set all topics, making this a perfect time to join Chillpak Nation! They run through their show biz bona fides, they regale with stories of recent travel adventures, they celebrate the lives of two seminal figures in “Celebrity Deaths”, they discuss some of the greatest movies to be directed by women, they tackle a “Lawsuit of the Week” involving Madonna, they hail the music of the Mississippi Delta in “Live Event of the Week”, they analyze the Department of Justice plan to repeal the Paramount Consent Decrees in “Explanation of the Week”, and they preview a future show (and special guest) in “What We’re Reading”. Is there something for everyone? We like to think so! Warning: Dean and Phil’s high-spirited, artful, irreverent, insightful and inspiring conversation can be habit-forming!
Dean is back in Detroit, Phil is back in the swing of things and your friends in podcasting connect via Skype to discuss the backlash over the recent Oscars, the death of “Star Trek” on the big screen (after the cancellation of the 4th film in the JJ Abrams “Kelvin” timeline), and the rebirth of Trek on the small screen (with the revelation of the story-line for the forthcoming “Picard” series). There is a “Lawsuit of the Week” involving the long-running series “Bones” and there are a bunch of “Celebrity Deaths”. Among those being celebrated are one of the all-time great comedic actresses, a legendary whistleblower, a World War II hero immortalized in a classic film, and a four-time Oscar-winning composer, arranger, conductor (and father-in-law of Woody Allen!).
