SORT BY Relevancy
Hollywood’s longest night of the year results in one of the longest episodes of the year at YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
And unlike the Oscars, the 72 minutes brought to you by your friends in podcasting are full of surprises, full of irreverence and full of insight.
Oh, yeah, and there’s the usual wagering between Dean and Phil, only this year, they don’t find out what they stand to lose until the end of the show!
Boasting two special guests, it’s our annual Oscar smackdown! Enjoy!
Update: 10/7 Did not know this show was cut in half so rest is MIA. Thank for listening and this show will be redone again.
007 Review Celebrating the Best of James Bond, My favorite films, behind the scenes, books, trivia and a big connect the dot section including Apes? Trek? & other goodies...
Due to a tech problem wit the phones we couldn't get KJ on the show as you will hear on this show so I went solo but the siituation threw my game off.
Also 15 minute start of a quick announcements and reviews. PS see our website under CHECK THIS OUT to see BTR explanation on the problem on hand for the show.
Before taking off on their holiday travels, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are doing what they do best: Making sense of a (show business) world gone wild …
They weigh in on the cyber terrorist attack against Sony. They celebrate a milestone achieved by one of their favorite shows. They discuss live events starring the likes of Angela Lansbury and Jeff Goldblum. They dish on an animation price-fixing lawsuit, the decades-long Roman Polanski judicial drama and the idea of actors owning a copyright interest in their performances. They discuss casting news that has them hopeful and casting news that gives them pause. They champion three outstanding films from earlier this year that you probably missed that are available now on home video and they warn you against an award-hopeful Christmas Day opener that is without a doubt one of the worst films of the year. All that PLUS much more as they wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
All together now (singing): “We need a little Chillpak, right this very minute!”
Ben Manning performs a spoof Sketch written by satirical magazine in the UK "Private Eye".
If easilly offended it is advised not to listen!
When not getting up to mischief...
Manning was professionally coached as a child until a back accident meant he could not persue the game, however - he has commentated (as a collector and devotee of the game) with the BBC and for Somerset county cricket club's radio commentary - some of which can be found on youtube. The Murali Kartik incident in 2012 achieved 13,000 listens on youtube. His proudest moment was to be coached by Norman Cowans and the late Wilf Slack (England cricketers of the early eighties ) as a child, but as an adult his proudest moment was when he attended the memorial service of the late Christopher Martin Jenkins - "CMJ" - at St Pauls Cathedral in 2013.
Ben's Cricket Archive of Audio and readings of rare books will feature. Thousands of hours of footage unavailable elsewhere will feature.
