Would you walk away from a successful career in broadcast journalism – producing interviews and interviewing… wait, listen to this, celebrities like Gweneth Paltrow, Madonna, and Johnny Depp on a daily basis? My guest did. I have Heather Dean on the show!
Heather is now the host of aish.com’s weekly podcast, “At Home in Jerusalem” where she gets to talk to some of the most influential people in the Jewish world. In her “former life,” she was a broadcast journalist in NY producing celebrity interviews with MTV, Associated Press (AP) Radio Network; E! Entertainment Television; TV Guide; People Magazine Online and more. She had so much experience with celebrities and celebrity news, that she was considered the “go to expert,” and as such was often interviewed on camera for networks like NBC News, MSNBC, Fox News and Fox 5 New York, to comment on breaking entertainment news stories.
Heather became a regular student at Aish HaTorah NY in the late 1990s, and gradually started keeping an observant lifestyle. Listen to how Heather’s career changed as she underwent a transformation in outlook and lifestyle. What kind of questions did she then start asking celebrities and how did that go?
Heather ended leaving her career behind and settling in Israel where she raised her family. She tells us what happened. Heather is very in tune with the Divine Providence throughout her life’s journey and you’ll hear that come through several times in the interview. Heather has a book coming out soon, “Searching for Heather Dean,” which we talk about. And of course we talk about her weekly podcast which she hosts for aish.com. Here you go ladies, here’s the lovely Heather Dean.
