The show starts with two “Live Events of the Week” before the opening theme song even plays! Dean tells tales of hanging out in Melbourne with Lou Diamond Phillips and Peter Shinkoda, then Phil gives a history lesson on a bright light in the 1930′s progressive movement in L.A., as well as a re-opened and re-modeled SoCal cultural icon.
After the opening, your friends in podcasting discuss a “Lawsuit of the Week” where theatre actors are suing their own union and a Federal investigation into claims that women filmmakers are being discriminated against in Hollywood.
Then, movies and television shows get reviewed and discussed, including the documentary “Merchants of Doubt”, the current releases “Room” and “Spotlight”, the films of Fritz Lang, new television series “Quantico”, “Grandfathered” and “The Grinder”, and the new season of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”. After that, Dean and Phil iscuss an email from a loyal listener about how “good” television might be standing in the way of “great television” (and whether this might be true of movies as well). Then, it’s an absolute information dump as dozens of big-screen and small-screen adaptations, remakes, reboots and revivals are previewed and debated. “Men in Black”, “The Watchmen”, “Die Hard”, “Roots”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “Twin Peaks”, “Hart to Hart”, “Flatliners”, “Lethal Weapon”, “John Wick” and “The A-Team” are only some of the titles that will get discussed.
This one should be called YOUR Chillpak Hollywood 70 Minutes!
Tonight's show is going to be a very truthful & honest one about many different topics including John Lennon getting absolutely slammed by certain articles I've come across on the web, even more pop-culture news for you, crazies in Hollywood and the scene around it & more.
Sometimes the crazy just gets way too overwhelming and we need to just blatantly, flat out, talk about it, and not let anything get in our way.
Today is that time, so please join me, Krayola & Zuul as we talk about all of these nasty, nasty things ;)
Why does Oscar Isaac have to be in X-men Apocalypse and Star Wars: Episode VII?
Who should Direct a live action movie of Akira?
Only stupid people hate Prometheus.
Could people please STFU about a Batman solo film already
Any episode that involves both a letter from a listener about how her kids enjoy YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and a report from a former guest about people having sex while listening to your friends in podcasting has got to be hilarious and that certainly is the case this week!
Stand-up comedy, binge-watching, the suffragette movement, the Z Channel, Netflix, misogyny, Nancy Drew and Beth Henley’s “Abundance” are just some of the many topics covered on this week’s show. Enjoy!

The Real News Behind The News helps wakes you up And get your day started with a good cup of coffee and a brain full of information that you will need to help you sort out the lies that are told to you by the mainstream media. We highlight and shed truth on the international, national, state, and local headlines that effect your day to day lives.
As loyal listeners of this show know, probably the only truthful way to describe YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour would be that actor-artist-inventor-improv comic Dean Haglund and independent filmmaker, teacher and certified Violence Prevention Specialist Phil Leirness spend an hour each week discussing anything going on in the world that has grasped their attention, and usually, Dean and Phil discuss these “goings on” through the prism of how they are being depicted in, or ignored by, the media. A great variety of subjects have attracted their attention this week: From the responsibility of sports fans to make sure their favorite teams aren’t menaces to society to what we can learn about our culture from the on-air shooting of a news reporter and camera person in Virginia this past week, from an appalling programming choice on the part of IFC to a dating site for those with mental illness, from the lack of opportunity for female and minority directors in television to the lack of distribution for African-American owned networks and content on Comcast and Time Warner. All that, plus a silent horror classic, a documentary about Tim Burton’s version of “Superman” (which was to star Nicolas Cage as the Man of Steel), the new film from the director of “Amelie” that the Weinstein Company really doesn’t want you to see, the death of Oliver Sacks, the anniversary of Robin Williams’ suicide, the truth behind water and kale, and a letter from a listener like you about supporting character actors. Finally, this IS the week where your friends in podcasting start reviewing the films on the “Film Fatales” list of female-directed movies everyone should see.
Whew. How’s THAT for an action-packed show?!
The victims of the Umpqua shooting are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Dean and Phil weigh in on another entry from the Film Fatales list of female-directed films everyone should see. This week’s selection comes from the super-talented Lynn Shelton. After that, Phil weighs in on two brand new, Oscar-hopefuls, taking one behind the shed for its unbearably bad casting. Another name is added to the list of great contemporary character performers to cherish and celebrate.
Then, guest correspondent Page Branson of Level 7 Access: A Marvel Agents of Shield Podcast joins Dean and Phil to review the pilot of The X-Files revival (which screened this weekend at New York Comic Con). She also hips us to all that’s upcoming on the small screen from Marvel – including Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, Jessica Jones – and how the recent creative shakeup at the studio might affect their small screen fare.
YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!
There are many questions to be asked (and hopefully answered) on this week’s show: How was Dean’s whirlwind trip to Vancouver to film the revival of “The X-Files”? Did that filming require his wearing a wig? Will he (and the other Lone Gunmen) return for more episodes? What to make of yet the latest theater shooting, and the life without parole sentencing of the Aurora, Colorado, shooter? How good is the new “Mission: Impossible” movie? How good OR bad is “Ant-Man”? Are superhero adaptations in general, and the Marvel universe specifically, still relevant?
All those questions, and many, many more are discussed.
So, naturally, the whole show begins with a discussion about …reincarnation?!
It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. So, enjoy!
Indeed to all of us who have grown up watching him on the big screen and TV, Charlie Sheen coming forward to the public about his HIV status makes you wonder is Hollywood really that vain or is being blackmailed just a tactic to gain sympathy from the public? And if you were his wife or partner what would you do?
Your guess is as good as mine let's chop it up tonight at 8 p.m.
Host Cyrus Webb welcomes you to this edition of Conversations Daily News featuring your news headlines, music from our Artist of the Week Thom Shepherd and our Entertainment Spotlight featuring musician Robert Miller from Project Grand Slam.
