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.
Phil is still on the road, so much like last week, there is only going to be a brief conversation between he and Dean at the top of this week’s show, before an interview Phil conducted with a special guest, a guest who serves as a perfect follow-up to the interview Dean conducted on last week’s show!

Your friend in podcasting, Phil Leirness, introduces this week’s show, describing what a challenging year this has been in terms of fulfilling our promise to bring you one hour of free podcast entertainment each and every week …
This week’s show was the biggest challenge yet what with Dean Haglund trapped in a blizzard with no phone or internet access.
How did we manage to produce a show under such circumstances?
With help from our friends, with an interview and with some excerpts from the otherwise unavailable “From the Heart of Hollywood” (as this show was known then) episode #33 of 31 December 2007!
Please give it a listen, and make sure to tune in next week, when Dean and Phil engage in their yearly review of their previous New Year’s resolutions before unveiling their resolutions for 2014.
Happy New Year, one and all!
