Wow! What a show!

This week’s episode begins with your friends in podcasting sharing some of the many messages they received regarding their lists of their Top Ten all-time favorite War Movies. Several of these messages, and Dean and Phil’s responses, are hilarious! From there, they turn to heartfelt thoughts about how much animal companions have meant to their lives and their work. Dean confides that his dobermans (both featured in The Truth Is Out There) were his muses, and even after their deaths, still are. Phil shares the heart-wrenching struggle to save his beloved feline companion, Fuzz Aldrin and how Chillpak nation has been helping to give this story a happy ending (join Team Fuzz at http://gofundme.com/save-fuzz-aldrin).

The rest of the show is dedicated to the return of three iconic television brands. David Letterman is back. Dean and Phil tackle why he has returned with his new Netflix show and how it might play in the current cultural landscape. “Star Trek: Discovery” is back, with the second part of its inaugural season. Why its return might actually hint at both improvement, and perhaps, increased acceptance. Finally, “The X-Files” is back. Dean and Phil tackle what the show has to say about the world today, about the ways in which the show has been retconned (a la “Twin Peaks”) for its return, about how the return of Dean’s character came about, and where that return might lead, about the inclusion of “This Man” and what that inclusion says about some of the misgivings the creators of “The X-Files” might have about the show’s cultural impact. Trust us, this discussion is positively mind-blowing.

The hilarious. The heartfelt. The mind-blowing. Sure sounds like YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour (with 10% more “hour”) to us!
