Your friends in podcasting celebrate the life of the woman who broke the news about the start of World War II and the life of a man who redefined literary and cinematic terror (and turned a certain staircase in Georgetown into a major tourist attraction). Then, after sharing some thoughts about a childhood friend who died this past week, Phil follows up on last week’s show by sharing with Dean some thoughts about “Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds” and sharing a story about how George Michael (and Wham!) helped inspire one of the most famous songs by The Smiths. There will also be much discussion of television, from the return of “Sherlock” and the news surrounding “The Man in the High Castle” to the Producers Guild Award nominations and a forthcoming show set backstage at “The Tonight Show” in the 1970′s. Finally, Phil gets on his soapbox as he and Dean address the controversy surrounding Meryl Streep’s speech at the Golden Globes and the overwhelming accolades being bestowed upon La La Land. All that, plus a frank discussion about “perceived vegetative states” AND a ton of laughs on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
This week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begins with a special audio montage. After two weeks of “theme” episodes, your friends in podcasting would love to discuss TV and Movie news and reviews, however the bulk of this week’s show is spent celebrating the lives of such luminaries as Zsa Zsa Gabor, Richard Adams, George S. Irving, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and George Michael. Then, with what time is left, Dean and Phil reveal how they spent their respective New Years.
Dean is travelling, so he and Phil won’t be able to celebrate the lives of a couple amazing women who died this past week until they get together in L.A. to record several shows this week. In the meantime, they pre-recorded this, their third “Top Ten” show of the ten they have planned to commemorate year ten of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. This week, in anticipation of La La Land opening, your friends in podcasting count down their Top Ten All-Time Favorite Movie Musicals! This episode has it all: Singing, dancing, comedy, romance AND the firestorm of a great debate as Dean and Phil get into a heated, and hilarious, argument over the merits of Baz Luhrman and his post-”Moulin Rouge” career. It’s 80 minutes of podcasty goodness featuring some of the greatest talents to grace the silver screen!
