You will be hard-pressed to find another episode of this or any other show biz-centric podcast that covers as much ground thematically OR temporally as this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour! Silent film legends John Gilbert and Harold Lloyd both made transitions to the sound era and Dean and Phil, with the help of a loyal listener like you (yes, YOU) dig into this history. Dean’s live streaming sci-fi adventure series “Gravity Hole” is back and Dean will tell all! Last week, Phil waxed rhapsodic while singing the praises of two female performers of Asian-American descent. This week, he reveals a startling personal connection to one of them, while previewing a potential “Live Event of the Week” and celebrating another actor he believes is due great things. The actors’ union, SAG-AFTRA held a contentious (possibly contested) election and your friends in podcasting will try to make sense of it. In a jam-packed installment of “Celebrity Deaths” a multi-Emmy-winning TV star, a modern-day “robber baron”, the “king of puns”, a pioneering animator, a “Star Trek” actress, a comic book artist, and a counterculture icon of the late 60’s and 1970’s all get remembered.
Happy June, everybody! Summer is on its way here in the historic core of downtown Los Angeles, and YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour’s 6th year of changing the way you listen to the internet is really starting to heat up!
This week, your friends in podcasting welcome two special guests in their first ever show dedicated to a Chillpak Hollywood “Live Event of the Week” …
French Stewart is a marvelous actor, best known for his role as “Harry Solomon” on 3rd Rock From the Sun, and he is at the top of his game playing silent screen icon Buster Keaton in a new show at the Sacred Fools Theatre in Los Angeles. Jaime Robledo, his director in the show, is one of the most gifted, most innovative talents working in theatre today. They both join Dean and Phil for an irreverent, hilarious, insightful and emotionally moving hour.
