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!

Cooper and Vikki discuss a notable absence from Caitlyn’s special and her divorce from Chris. Tune-in to the first episode of Hollywood Hookups and Breakups on September 2nd. Their first show will feature an exclusive interview with Alyssa Milano. She’ll be dishing on celebrity hookups and breakups like the recent split between Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green.
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!
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.
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!
Your friends in podcasting return with another action-packed installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, keeping hot drinks hot and cool drinks cool through irreverent, insightful and occasionally inspiring conversation. On this week’s show, Yvonne (“Batgirl”) Craig is remembered, two new movie releases are reviewed, a great actor from the Golden Age of Hollywood (and beyond) is celebrated, the art of acting, (and what makes “great” acting) is delved into, and the results of the recent actors’ union election are pored over. Meanwhile, fatigue over the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems to be spreading to … Marvel Studios itself! Longtime listeners know that the issue of diversity is never far from the minds or creative impulses of Phil Leirness and Dean Haglund and on this week’s show they applaud the revival of “The X-Files” for embracing diversity and discuss several actors new to the show’s cast. All that, plus three new television series are reviewed and one just announced new show is previewed.
Celebrated Hollywood author and film historian Laurie Jacobson returns to discuss Dishing Hollywood, her scintillating book about the most notorious scandals that have rocked Tinseltown from the early part of the 20th century up to the present. Tales of lives cut short, unsolved mysteries, dramatic suicides and steamy affairs fill the pages of Jacobson’s revealing romp through some of Hollywood’s biggest scandals involving stars like Gary Cooper, Lana Turner, Robert Mitchum, John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Debbie Reynolds, Frank Sinatra, Natalie Wood, River Phoenix and many more. Jacobson, who loves to talk about everything Hollywood, has written and produced documentaries, television series and specials, and appears regularly on TV and radio. Her other books include Hollywood Heartbreaks, Hollywood Haunted and Timmy’s in the Well: The Jon Provost Story, which she co-authored with her husband, the former child actor who played Timmy in TV’s Lassie.
