01:05:23

Sheila's got snacks! We run the gamut this week from new research on women in the workplace to some hot TV shows. First our Satellite Sisters Of The Week: Congrats to the astronauts who executed the first ever all-female space walk and to Ann McClain, the woman left behind who cheered them on. Personally, we would have behaved more like Aidy Bryant on the SNL skit.

According to McKInsey and Fortune Magazine, what's between you and that last big promotion? It's not getting that first big promotion. They call it "the broken rung" and it appears to be the biggest system barrier to gender parity.

Liz has her first visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. It won't be her last. Want to meet America's Sweetheart? Here's Adam Rippon's Book Tour Schedule

Who is sticking up for Meghan Markle? We are. Hang in there, sister.

Using Improv to Spark Creativity and Fall Book Recommendations
01:08:58

Today on the podcast, we follow-up on Liz Dolan's whereabouts (The World Track & Field Championships in Doha), the new law in California for college athletes, some Fall Organizing tips that we don't want to follow, our Fall Book Recommendations and interview Jorjeana Marie about using improv to spark creativity.

Thanks to Jorjeana Marie for coming into the studio. Find out more about her and her book Improv for Writers here.


Fall Books We Love:

From Lian:

The Dutch House-- Ann Patchett

Beautifully written novel about a broken family and the two siblings that emrege from the wreckage. Novel of memory-- a warning. You’re either going to love that-- or not. 

The Nobodies-- Liza Palmer

This is a super fun page turner about a former journalist that goes to work at a tech companyy as the lowest person in the department. But her journalistic instincts kick in when she senses something in off behind the scenes. Liza Palmer is the best-selling author of Conversations with the fat Girl and she based her novel on her real life experiences going to work at BuzzFeed. So sosososos funny.

We Met in December-- Rosie Curtis

For fans of Rom Coms and British people saying funny British things and drinking way too much on the weeknights. Engaging romance that unfurls over a calendar year.

Bringing Down the Duke -- Evie Dunmore

Take a regency romance and ramps it up with a fun storyline you don’t see often-- womens suffrage! 

From Julie

A Single Thread -- Tracy Chevalier

A pre World War II story about a women who uses her stitching to connect with other women and the world

Things You Save in a Fire -- Katherine Center

Firefighters. Boston. Romance. Funny. We're in!


Reminder about GoodReads + BookClubGirl for The Sweeney Sisters give-aways

Julie's Tuesday trends:

Mass Weddings

Lavender Everything

Where in the world is Liz Dolan? You can find out about her latest adventure by following @SatSisters on Instagram and #satsisterstravel. Liz has provided these clues: She'll be in a country she has never visited before, after flying there on an airline she has never flown.

00:58:58

Rico Gagliano joins Liz, Lian and Julie to talk about his book Brunch Is Hell, summertime entertaining and his impending fatherhood. He'll become a first-time dad in September and Urban Nana has some totally unsolicited advice. Rico is Liz's co-host on her the podcast Safe For Work, a weekly workplace advice show.

We also discuss guilty pleasures (Lian does not like the term), why we get sick on vacation (the let-down effect) and and a few of entertainment recommendations. Julie just saw the Guggenheim exhibit Basquiat’s “ Defacement”: The Untold Story exhibit centered on painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat commemorating death of artist Michael Stewart and found it very powerful and timely. Liz has picked out a classic audiobook by Bill Bryson for her road trip: A Walk In The Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail.

Inner Fitness Life Coaching, Urban Nana, NASA's Artemis Program, Cheese-filled Wedding, Serena Williams and Steph Curry
00:59:00

Lian recounts the personal growth aspects of her visit to Rancho La Puerta with her husband and highly recommends the Inner Fitness Program from life coach Emily Boorstein. Emotional learning! Julie recaps Urban Nana's visit to Brooklyn during a heat wave. Liz is excited that NASA's new astronaut training program is named after the goddess of the moon Artemis (Apollo's twin sister). Nasa has promised to send a female astronaut to the moon on the next trip. Here's our favorite cheese-filled wedding announcement. Much better than this story about out-of-control bridesmaids celebrations. And Amanda Knox crowd-sourcing her wedding? We don't get it.

For fun, watch this Serena Williams video and this Steph Curry Sings Hamilton video. Tune in next week to hear special guest Rico Gagliano, author of Brunch is Hell and co-host with Liz of the Safe For Work career advice podcast, which was just named to this list of 20 Best Podcasts of 2019.

Royal Baby Sussex,Working Hours vs. Working Parents plus Dance AND POETRY!
01:00:52

Welcome, Baby Boy Sussex. Well done, Meghan and Harry! That's the good news. Here's the bad news in one NYT headline: Women Did Everything Right. Then Companies Got Greedy. How American's obsession with long hours has widened the gender gap.

Forget Fosse Fosse Fosse. We love Verdon. Verdon. Verdon. If you are not watching Fosse/Verdon on FX, we recommend!

On a related note, is dancing the new kale? We discuss: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/30/well/move/health-benefits-dancing.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share

Wedding bells for Annie Lamott. We love it!

Julie is on the Kacey Musgraves bandwagon and sports the cowboy chic to prove it.

Liz thinks the Satellite Sisters might be the only ones who did not see the record breaking Avengers: End Game this weekend. Or watch Game of Thrones, for that matter.

Give A Listen: Imagined Life
00:08:33

Satellite Sisters is off this week so we wanted to share an excerpt from another Wondery podcast we enjoy called Imagined Life. This starts with a special intro from Liz.

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to walk in the shoes of a legend?

In Imagined Life, you can play along as you are immersed in the story of a notable celebrity, living their life from their point of view…persevering through poverty or bullying, and finding joy in self acceptance. 

Are you a legendary musician, or maybe a famous entrepreneur? Clues about your identity are dropped along the way, but only at the end of each episode will you learn who “you” really are.

Hosted by actress Virginia Madsen (Dune, Candyman, Sideways) and voice actor Robbie Daymond (Spider-Man, Tuxedo Mask), each episode of Imagined Life will immerse you into an individual's innermost thoughts as they experience adversity, hope, trial and error.

If you enjoy this excerpt, subscribe to Imagined Life on Apple PodcastsSpotifyStitcherWondery.com and wherever podcasts are available.

Remember, you can always catch up on Satellite Sisters episodes you may have missed over the years. We've got hundreds of them! Subscribe at Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher or Wondery.com. And we love when you share your favorites episodes with your own Satellite Sisters and Misters.

We start with our remembrances of Notre Dame, after yesterday's terrible fire. Then more from The Edna and Jim "I've Already Been To College" Update on the Admissions Scandal: It's not looking good for Aunt Becky

Books: At the wonderful LA Times Festival of Books, which attracts more than 100,000 visitors, Liz went to panels featuring:

Frederick Douglass Prophet of Freedom by David W Blight. It just won the Pulitzer for History

The New Negro: The Life of Alain Locke by Jeffrey C Stewart. Just won the Pulitzer for Biography.

Bad Blood by John Carreyroux, about Theranos, which we have discussed on previous podcasts.

Say Nothing by Patrick Radden Keefe about The Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Bitter Business Bureau. Wait a sec. The Uber people are going to make $100 million dollars in a IPO for a company that LOST a billion dollars in 2018?? We could think of plenty of business ideas that could LOSE money.

We admire Abby Wambach and recommend her new book Wolfpack plus two really great interviews with her: TBD with Tina Brown podcast and Norah O'Donnell on CBS This Morning podcast on Stitcher..

Cheeseboarding, Brexit, What We Want In Restaurants, Theranos Book + Doc + Podcast
01:04:29

Is snowplow parenting related to the college admissions scandal? We think so.

Brexit. Could it be going any worse? In a word, no.

This woman who feels no pain. It seemed cool until we read the part about her flesh burning.

The right restaurants for those of us over 50.

How to talk to dogs. And yes we'd like to see them on court at the U. S. Open. Who wouldn't?

Breakdancing in the Paris Olympics? Oui ou non?

Julie recommends following Harry and Meghan in instagram here @sussexroyal.

We are going to see Patrick Radden Keefe and John Carreyroux at the L A Times Festival of Books. Here's the whole schedule. Are you going? There's also a special audio Sound Trip: An Immersive Experience from our podcast network Wondery.

College Admissions Scandal, NASA Fail, Audiobook Recommendation: Say Nothing
01:00:26

The College Admissions Scandal is a story tailor-made for the Satellite Sisters. Remember, Julie was an admissions officer and Lian hosted a podcast called College Bound Chronicles. Today we tackle the news story we suspect will keep on giving. Best coverage is here in the LA Times. Plus, we just love the name Operation Varsity Blues. In other news, NASA lets us down. Really NASA? Not enough spacesuits for TWO women? Plus we report on our Spring Break activities. Julie was on Urban Nana duty in Brooklyn, Lian was on her writer's retreat in Sonoma Valley and Liz was in Bend, Oregon avoiding doing her taxes. Want to understand WHY you procrastinate?

In Entertaining Sisters, we recommend the audiobook Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory by Patrick Radden Keefe. Plus Julie saw the movie US and the Broadway version of Frozen.

Our fond farewell to Dr. PM Forni, our longtime Satellite Sisters Envoy of Civility who passed away last week. We reminisce about the many thoughtful conversations we had with Dr Forni about why we should all be kinder, calmer and stronger. Here's his NYT obit. You will be inspired by his books Choosing Civility: 25 Rules Of Considerate Conduct and The Civility Solution: What To Do When People Are Rude. Plus we welcome Claire Tansey to talk about her new cookbook Uncomplicated. Lian tested the recipes at home!

Must Haves for the Season:


Lian's Recommendations: 

Gnome Place Card holders from Harry & David. These heirloom quality figures are just the cutest and they have a secret. Inside of each little Gnome is a chocolate truffle. (I believe in chocolate at any point in the meal on certain days…) My kids would have loved these when they were little, a special little something on the table every year. Great gift for a new little family. Six Gnomes and two rounds of truffles.  

https://www.harryanddavid.com/h/gourmet-foods/kitchen-dining/32503?searchTerm=gnome%20truffle%20holders&storeIdTab=21051&catEntryId=

 

Festive Small Plates for the Season. I’m a believer in small plates! I like to eat these things that come on small plates: appetizers; salads; desserts. And I love the way they plates can make a table look special, even if your regular china is just white. I have a Twelve Days of Christmas set that I sue from Thanksgiving to New Years Day. Below is a round-up of great plates I found that would be a festive addition at any table. Great gifts.

 

12 days of Christmas modern/fun from Anthropology

Julie’s Recommendations:

Fresh Aprons, Oven Mitts & Dishtowels! Who doesn’t love appreciate some fresh linens and kitchen accoutrements at the holidays—or any time really. It makes for a festive kitchen crew and a themed food prep and clean up.

 

You can find Satellite Sisters aprons at our shop!

 

Or check out the selection at Minted. I love the city specific toiles: Atlanta, Chicago, NYC, SF, Texas .

Liz's recommendations


I don’t like to be too on the nose with my holiday décor, so I like Stuff You Don’t Totally Have to Put Away after the holidays. I’m into Gold and a red you can live with like Pomengranate, not Santa hat red. My go-to Holiday Shop is Crate & Barrel.

 https://www.crateandbarrel.com/holiday/

For my house in Oregon, Lian gave me some Woodland Creatures from Pier 1 a few years ago. Hooper and I both like them, so I’m thinking of adding a few more this year, like this decorative Hedgehog.

On today's podcast, we remember the day we with spent with Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the California Women's Conference hosted by Maria Shriver in 2010.

Also today, travel trends from West Texas - Julie recommends Marfa, the McDonald Observatory and Big Bend National Park. Lian wants to know what's happening in the milk aisle at her supermarket (SO many choices) and Liz has the answer from the business pages. Plus artisanal snacks on airplanes are supposed to make us happy? Really? How about more legroom?

On today's podcast, Meghan and Harry's happy baby news could not make us happier. Well done, Sussexes!

Special Satellite Sisters Shout-Out to this meteorologist who wore a special accessory on her weather cast. Her baby!

And if that's not your choice, try Rent The Runway. New details on your work wardrobe solutions.

And one last clothing note, we hear from the New York Times that dirndls are coming back. But longtime listeners will know that Liz brought them back on this podcast episode in 2013.

Julie, a former college and grad school Admissions officer herself, helps us understand the new Federal case against Harvard. Plus, she watched the new National Geographic series North Korea From The Inside with Michael Palin. And as ask ourselves if the Pope should really visit the DPRK. Just not feeling it.

Liz's gets a diagnosis from her physical therapist. It's surprising. And something that needs to be addressed before Julie and Liz's Major Athletic Adventure in 2019. To Be Announced After The New Year!

On the show, we play our new Satellite Sisters show trailer. To send it to your own Satellite Sisters and Misters, open this file. It's the three minute audio all by itself! Forward on!

On today's podcast: Lian tries a personality quiz. And wins! Liz reviews A Star Is Born including the scoop on Charlie. That's Bradley Cooper's real dog! And some health and fitness talk, from strength training to CBD. Good luck to everyone on Operation Sea Turtle, our wellness discussion on the Satellite Sisters Facebook Group. Great pep talk and support!

We dispute the New York Times claim that dogs are NOT exceptional. Clearly, Laura Holson did not interview Hooper OR Steffi!

Plus, Lian shares her five point message to teenage girls. We'll post that on the Satellite Sisters blog with a link from Lian's personal blog.

Here's a link to The Frame, the great interview Liz and Lian mentioned with the cinematographer of A Star Is Born.

Season Premiere! Tutus! Spies! Trumpets!
01:08:25

Our season premiere has it all: Serena Williams' tutu on Center Court at the US Open, spies using microwaves to cook our brains and a design trend in supermarkets that we against. Plus Lian takes in a night at the Hollywood Bowl with John Williams and Steven Spielberg and today's Washington Post has a story about Nike's Just Do It campaign that includes Liz and some of her perspective on why the campaign has been so notable for 30 years. The news story was prompted by Nike's latest Colin Kaepernick ad

In Entertaining Sisters, we loved, laughed and cried through Crazy Rich Asians and are also very excited about three trailers we saw for new fall movies about music: 

A Star Is Born with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga! 

Bohemian Rhapsody starring Rami Malek about the life of Freddie Mercury!

And Blaze a new movie from Ethan Hawke. 

Lian recommends two books: Alternate Side by Anna Quindlen and The Storytellers Secret by Sejel Badani. 

Plus the most exciting TV news in Julie's household is that the Bourne movies are becoming a television series on USA network called Treadstone.   

Here's Lian's pork chop recipe from Pioneer Woman.

Tina Brown on The Vanity Fair Diaries, plus Advice for Meghan Markle
00:46:49

Tina Brown, editor extraordinaire-author-longtime favorite guest, joins Satellite Sisters Lian, Liz and Julie for a lively, thoughtful, personal discussion about her new book The Vanity Fair Diaries. Plus, she offers advice to Meghan Markle, the American woman about to marry Prince Harry. Brown, who was very close to Prince Harry's mother Diana, has a unique take on this transition from Hollywood TV star to British royalty and a little bit of a warning, too.

Vanity Fair Diaries is Tina Brown's contemporaneous diaries from the days when she hit New York as the shiny new editor of the struggling glossy magazine Vanity Fair. This is a remarkable woman's adventures in a glittering and scorching era: 1983 - 1992. Bold faced names in this Satellite Sisters discussion include Reagan, von Bulow, Demi Moore and Princess Diana. 

To listen to the Satellite Sisters previous interview with Tina Brown about her bestseller The Diana Chronicles, go here

New To You: Julie's Fave Pick from 2012
00:48:32

Julie picked this favorite episode from 2012 because she loves hearing Sheila and Monica. Ask Sheila any question about her Oscar picks and her answer is Ryan Gosling, despite the fact that he is not nominated for anything. Oh, well. Ask Julie about her Oscar picks and the answer is pretty much "Please. Anyone but The Artist!."

Here's Julie's pitch: "It is Oscar time 2012 and Sheila has an excellent Entertaining Sheila report direct from her Cozy Couch. Monica and Liz have their own picks and pans and Oscar-watching strategies for the big night. As usual, I’m a beat behind on all things Hollywood but I did manage to get face-to-face with Adam Levine at Mardi Gras. I also have an excellent business proposition for Liz. I suggest we launch an alternative to the Apple Store that's less intimidating. Fewer nerds and geniuses please! You know, it still sounds good to me in 2017. And all the sisters love the listener idea of holding a Carry-On Coat Contest. You'll just have to listen to understand.There is excitement is in the air on this podcast."  

Also, Liz recommends an audiobook in the spirit of the Satellite Sisterhood. It's Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

01:03:42

It's the day after Eclipse 2017 and we have a complete report from the totality + the partiality, the mountains and the plains, two wineries in Oregon, one stadium in Carbondale, IL, a parking lot in Dallas TX and a park bench in Pasadena, CA. Thanks to Away Luggage for sponsoring today's Satellite Sisters podcast.

Details on today's podcast episode: Was the totality as mind-blowing as you wanted? Liz, Monica and special Satellite Sister on the Spot Jill Barancik all say yes. Liz was camping at Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyard in Terrebonne, Oregon. You heard that right. Liz. Camping. A sure sign that the Eclipseolypse was upon us. Monica was doing sunrise yoga and listening to a Portlandia-inspired astronomer dude in Salem, Oregon at Brooks WineryJill, friend of the Satellite Sisterhood/former producer on The Oprah Winfrey Show/podcast producer, was in Saluki Stadium in Carbondale, IL after convincing her dubious husband that the totality was the only place to spend her birthday.

Julie and Lian file their reports from the partiality. Julie concludes that "much joy was to be had" on her end, while Lian has a beef with some "toddler talk" on hers. Lian also joyfully provides a complete round-up of the eclipse love that all the Satellite Sisters shared with us on the Satellite Sisters Facebook Group.  You must take in all the happy photos there right now! Sisters from coast-to-coast, from the top of Mount Whitney to their own lounge chairs in their driveways. You're the best, Satellite Sisterhood. Thank you for your enthusiasm and embrace of this awesome celestial event.

00:37:10

Eclipse 2017 SpectacularAstronomer Robert Kirshner Explains All To The Satellite Sisters. Satellite Sisters Liz DolanLian Dolan and Julie Dolan are joined by noted astronomer Dr. Robert Kirshner in a special podcast episode devoted entirely to #Eclipse2017 which will sweep across the United States on August 21. The Satellite Sisters know Kirshner as Cousin Bob, the family astronomer. He is also the Clowes Professor of Science at Harvard University and the Chief Program Officer for Science at the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation in Palo Alto, CA. On this Satellite Sisters Eclipse 2017 special podcast episode, Dr. Kirshner recommends some key resources for everyone interested in enjoying the historic celestial event.

And for those who live in parts of the country where they will view a partial eclipse, including Lian Dolan in Pasadena CA and Julie Dolan in Dallas TX, he has advice for maximum enjoyment + safety. Kirshner also describes what scientists will be able to observe and learn during the historic eclipse. On August 21, he will be at the American Astronomical Society meeting in Sun Valley, Idaho, which is in the path of totally, of course.

Princess Diana, Martha Stewart, Summer Salads, Nana Camp, Phelps vs. Bogus Shark
01:14:10

Satellite Sisters podcast is brought to you by Harrys.com and Rover.com.

On today's Satellite Sisters podcast, Lian DolanJulie Dolan and Liz Dolan announce plans for two special episodes about the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse, share their disappointment with Michael Phelps vs Shark and share their love of a heartbreaking new Princess Diana HBO documentary called Diana Our Mother and a classic episode of Say Yes To The Dress with guest star Martha Stewart. There she is in all of her chilly glory!

First up, on August 1, 2017 we will release Eclipseolypse 2017: The Satellite Sisters interview astronomer Robert Kirshner PhD.  Dr. Kirshner is one of the world's leading astrophysicists, the Clowes Professor of Science at Harvard University, the Chief Science Officer at the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and, perhaps most importantly, our cousin Bobby. Thank goodness we have a family astronomer to help us understand everything we need to know about eclipses before the big event on August 21. Our second Eclipseolypse 2017 Satellite Sisters Special will drop on August 22, the day after Liz and Monica have experienced the totality. Be sure you have subscribed to Satellite Sisters on Apple Podcasts or Stitcher so that you get both of these special episodes.

In other news, we had been excited about Michael Phelps vs. Shark but that was a big old bust. Julie compares it to Geraldo opening Al Capone's vault. Are you old enough to remember that? Lian is outraged that the international governing body of of swimming called FINA changed the name of Synchronized Swimming to Artistic Swimming. We have taken a pledge to never use that name even though they do wear nose clips and makeup. It's an incredibly athletic event. Let the athletes sound like athletes!

Lian is still sniffling after viewing HBO's documentary about Princess Diana called XXXX. It features really moving personal interviews with her sons Will and Harry. We miss you, Diana. In Lian's downtime, there's nothing she enjoys more than bingeing on Say Yes To The Dress. This weekend she found the best episode ever. Martha Stewart as special guest in all her chilly Martha-ness. You have to find it and watch.

Julie had a great Nana Camp experience crafting with a cool kit from Skullduggery. Good thing she had 10 year old Alice there to explain it to her! Success. 

Easy Breezy! It's summer so we are required to talk about summer salads. Lian shares a recipe and her secret ingredient. And Julie has one Tuesday trend about the woman who invented the self-cleaning house. Sounds great until you realize that it's like living inside a dishwasher.

Liz has a stalement with a neighbor in the parking garage. Grrrrrrr. Followed by a total fail at Meditation Class. Those two things might be related. Operation Sea Turtle struggles along.

On today's podcast, Liz DolanLian Dolan and Julie Dolan tackle the secret drug-fueled life of a USC med school dean, Julie's annual Nana Camp strategy, Lian's personal growth since college and Liz's suggestions for the new CEO of Uber.

First up, how fast are you listening to us? Julie says speed listening to podcasts is the latest thing.

Scandal in Lian's hometown of Pasadena. You must read this L A Times tale of a USC med school dean, his years of drug fueled parties and the meth overdose in the Hotel Constance that brought this to light. He will never lead the Rose Parade, that's for sure. 

Hello, LPGA. Just when Lian was totally onboard you go and announce a dress code for the LPGA players that she just cannot support. Save the short. LET THEM WEAR SKORTS!

Julie thinks Michael Phelps vs Shark is the equivalent of Roger Federer vs Bear. It's beneath his stature as a great champion. Lian's all for it. Do we need some Floaty-Pants to watch that?

Who should run Uber?  Liz does some handicapping of the current candidates and suggests a novel sisters-oriented solution.

Lian is in a Masterclass with Aaron Sorkin: You've seen the ads on Facebook for all those famous people teaching classes- Dustin Hoffman on Acting; Hans Zimmer on Music; Usher on Performance. Are they really worth it? Lian says yes. https://www.masterclass.com

Julie's Royal Report: The Duchess of Cambridge's wardrobe strategy impresses. Liz's Operation Sea Turtle report: There was a a mutiny at Deep Water Aerobics this Sunday. Plus, Liz buys a new used car and the hardest thing is opening the gas tank.

Liz recommends the movie version of the Broadway play Falsettos. It's playing around the country for just a few weeks right now. Find Falsetto shows here

Here's more from amazon about Don't You Forget About Me:

After earning rave reviews with her rock-and-roll memoir But Enough About Me, Jancee Dunn takes on fiction in this comically poignant debut, a perfect read for anyone who has ever looked back nostalgically and wondered what might have been.

At thirty-eight, Lillian Curtis is content with her life. She enjoys her routine as a producer for a talk show in New York City starring showbiz veteran Vi (“short for vibrant”) Barbour, a spirited senior. Lillian’s relationship with her husband is pleasant if no longer exciting. Most nights she is more than happy to come home to her apartment and crawl into her pajamas. Then she’s hit with a piece of shocking news: Her husband wants a divorce.

Blindsided, Lillian takes a leave of absence and moves back to her parents’ home in suburban New Jersey. Nestled in her childhood bedroom, where Duran Duran and Squeeze posters still cover the walls, she finds high school memories a healing salve to her troubles. She hurtles backward into her teen years, driving too fast, digging up mix tapes, and tentatively reconciling with Dawn, a childhood friend she once betrayed. Punctuating her stroll down memory lane is an invitation to the Bethel Memorial High School class of 1988 twenty-year reunion. It just might be Lillian’s chance to reconnect with her long-lost boyfriend, Christian Somers, who is expected to attend. Will it be just like heaven?

Lillian discovers, as we all must, the pitfalls of glorifying the glory days, the mortification of failing as a thirtysomething adult, and the impossibility of fully recapturing the past. Don’t You Forget About Me is for anyone who looks back and wonders: What if?

Girls Like Us: Carole King, Carly Simon, Joni Mitchell
00:57:19

Women we love, the songs they wrote and the men they slept with. On this episode of Satellite Sisters podcast from July 2, 2008, Liz, Sheila and Monica interview Sheila Weller about her New York Times Times Bestseller "Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon and the Journey of a Generation." On April 6, 1971, Carly Simon was about to take the stage at The Troubadour in Los Angeles. In the audience, James Taylor with his girlfriend Joni Mitchell. And back in NYC in the famed Brill Building, Carole King was already so famous as a songwriter that she was the person the Beatles asked to meet on their first trip to America. Meanwhile, in Fairfield CT, Monica, Sheila and Liz were in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades learning to love these voices of a generation. And love the men they loved. We are talking to you, James Taylor. 

Please fill out our 2017 Listener Survey: https://survey.libsyn.com/satellitesisters

Here's  from amazon about Girls Like Us:  "A groundbreaking and irresistible biography of three of America’s most important musical artists—Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon—charts their lives as women at a magical moment in time.

Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon remain among the most enduring and important women in popular music. Each woman is distinct. Carole King is the product of outer-borough, middle-class New York City; Joni Mitchell is a granddaughter of Canadian farmers; and Carly Simon is a child of the Manhattan intellectual upper crust. They collectively represent, in their lives and their songs, a great swath of American girls who came of age in the late 1960s. Their stories trace the arc of the now mythic sixties generation—female version—but in a bracingly specific and deeply recalled way, far from cliché. The history of the women of that generation has never been written—until now, through their resonant lives and emblematic songs.

Girls Like Us is an epic treatment of midcentury women who dared to break tradition and become what none had been before them—confessors in song, rock superstars, and adventurers of heart and soul."

stevie & dmitry!!!!!!!!

 

Article 5—finale 

Filmed in DC

Written by Barbara Hall

Directed by Eric Stoltz

 

 

This episode managed to set up some new relationships and stroylines for the future—and pretty much steal some headlines rights from this weeks’ news—

The dissolution of NATO

Russian Collusion in an Election

Suspicious Business activity by a Son in high places

News Leaks by highly placed associates

 

The only thing missing was Pippa’s Wedding! 

 

A really, really good show for Madam Secretary herself. A few scenes that had Emmy Nomination Submission written all over them—she was the star of the show. 

 

The storylines:

 

Russian makes moves to unvade Bulgarioa. France aligns with Russia. Bess saves NATO

 

Henry is SAD.  And we are sad that his new gig doesn’t involve a tweed blazer with leather patches on the sleeves and a bull whip. 

 

LOVE is in the air. Bess & Henry. Nadine & Mike B. and STEVIE & DMITRY!!!!!

 

Binders full of Blouses

 

Nadine’s date outfit goes to the office!

Daisy—still with the cute dresses

Bess had a knock-out collection of blouses this show. They pulled out all the silks!

Plus, lots of screen time for the behind the scenes lives of all of the people that populate The Seventh Floor at the Dept of State. 

 But first... 

 

BLAKE OPENING MONTAGE WITH SONDHEIMMMMMMMMMM

From Company—Bobby, Bobby… Blake, Blake, Blake 

He runs! He has a cat! He calls his mom on the way to work! 

Love you. Gotta go. Bye.

 

Let’s talk about the overarching storyline—freeing an American Journalist from the Sudan. He was imprisoned 6 years ago and is now dying with TB. Over the years, DOS has monitored his status but has not been able to do anything. 

 

But the story is told through the lives and eyes of all the folks on the 7th floor...

 

  

Blake - We all need one. A selfless assistant to a powerful person who loves his cat, his mom and his position. 

 

 Nadine- the best.  Everyone’s confidant. Her scene with Mike B- fantastic

 

Daisy- oh no. Pregnant and we don’t find out until the end – but we all know it’s the Spy in Accountings baby

 

Matt- a little bit of writers block- but I loved the way he got himself out of it. Exactly what writers do. 

 

Jay- woo-hoo! Good thing Jay got that couch last week! 

 

And Finally Elizabeth… smaller role, but always the emotional ceneter of the show. Light bulb moment? Check. Prfessional demeanor at all times? Check. Best Boss Ever vis a vis her conversation with Daisy? Check. 

 

At the end when they are all standing there together- a very nice moment. Sob, Sob. 

 

Binders full of Blouses

 

RIP Daisy’s cute dresses.

Blake’s natty suits.

College Reunions, 13 Reasons Why, Princess Charlotte & Tech Talk
01:05:47

Liz DolanLian Dolan and Julie Dolan on this week's Satellite Sisters podcast. This week on the show, we discuss college reunions pros and cons. Can you really go back again? And if you go back again, should you join a flash mob with Janet Yellen? Or attempt a radio show? Maybe not, people. 

Julie is following the latest on President Trump's openness to meet with "smart cookie" Kim Jong Un. She speculates on the perfect place for such a meeting. Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte has turned two and we love her mom's photo of her. She may be fourth in line to the throne but that's the world's cutest sweater. And did you hear the details of how Brigitte Trogneux met her husband Emmanuel Macron? Unusual.

Lian shares some information about Netflix's 13 Reasons Why and some advice on talk to your teens and preteens about suicide and this show. Julie recommends the movie Their Finest as smart, funny, sad and sentimental. Watch for it locally. And Lian will be moderating a great Pasadena Magazine Women in Business panel with some very accomplished women in media. Hear all about it on the podcast and buy tickets here

On Operation Sea Turtle, Liz's heath and fitness plan, she provides the Moment of Truth episode. Two moments: 1) her annual physical and weigh-in and 2) an observed moment of sisterhood in her water aerobics class.

Here's a terrible cycling hospitality idea that none of the Dolan sisters will ever sign up for, but if this is your tribe, knock yourselves out.

00:49:42

Plus a Listener Mailbag with questions and observations pulled from our Satellite Sisters Facebook Group.

In the news, Lian loves a lottery! So much bonding over the Mega Millions. Julie finds the Supreme Court arguments about the health care law surprisingly lowbrow. Broccoli? Cell Phones? We thought this was about the law! Plus she has a theory about how the decision will come out. Sheila tells us a little more about her daily patterns around Pasadena. There's a new stop in addition to her usual Vons, BofA and Zushi Sushi. And Liz missed all the lottery and Supreme Court excitement this week, but did experience to total happening in Barcelona. She's not one to let a little light rioting spoil a good time.

Madam Secretary Recap: Convergence Season 3, Episode 17
00:21:40

Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan of the Satellite Sisters recap the most recent episode of the CBS drama Madam Secretary. 

This episode was called convergence and yes, we had the doomsday storyline and the CIA mole storlyline coming togthere. But really, I think for most of us, it was the convergence of Cupcake Wars and Tim Daly’s broken legs. 

 

 

 

Storylines:

 

The search for the CIA mole and the missing stinger missiles and a guy that was clearly inspired by Ken Bone.  In the middle of this storyline, we get a mob lawyer who barges into Bess’s house somehow and she watches a lot of Cupcake Wars. 

 

 

Duck Dynasty Doomsday—Ian the agent we don’t really care about is being drugged. But WhatEvs. Then Henry gets shot at and we finally get the answer to how with the writers include Tim Daly's actual broken legs into the show. 

 

The extinction of the Black Rhino in Nambia—Bess puts out a challenge for all DOS empolyess: come out with an out of the box  solution. An analyst on the global health desk rises to the challenges and it involves Viagra. Erection jokes follow. 

 

Father- son storyline about building henry’s childhood toy and Jason joining in, but only as he wants. By watching YouTibe videos and reporting back. 

 

 

 

A few observations: 

I don’t trust Captain Baker. Something about her.

Loved the scene where Bess promoted the young woman who came up with the Viagra solution. 

Nadine and Mike B—let’s see more of that.

 

Binders full of blouses:

We had a lot of repeats this week which is how real women dress, so that’s cool. 

Julie loved the fresh eyewear.

01:28:45

On this New To You show from February 15, 2007, Lian, Julie and Monica are together. Lian mentions that our show is now available as a “podcast” for the very first time on the air. Don’t forget. The Satellite Sisters are podcast pioneers!

Julie has an article from The Guardian in the UK about men who understand women. The Top 50 men include Manolo Blanik and George Clooney.

It's the new Sports Illustrate Swimsuit issue. We complain about this every year, so here you go. though we do love seeing Beyonce on the cover. 

Julie’s in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Her phones are out as well her her high-speed ISDN line. That makes it pretty hard to do a live radio show but her phone company Quest just does not care. 

Because it's February, we discuss heart disease with a doctor who runs an organization to educate women about their cardiac risks. Monica, a longtime cardiac care nurse, reminds us that eighty percent of heart disease in America is caused by lifestyle factors you can change: high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease.

She also reviews a PBS special on the heart disease that was hosted by Larry King. As a cardiac care nurse, she once cared for Larry! Small world.

Madam Secretary Recap: Break in Diplomacy
00:27:39

Break in Diplomacy

 

 Let’s play, Who’s the inspiration? Hmm, let see, who were the writers at Madam Secretary thinging about when they wrote this episode? 

 

Thais was a serious episode featuring serious themes and a world leader known for being a rough around the edges narcissitic businessman who ran an usual campaign and has a history of lewd behavior and corrupt business dealings with an unusually close ties to a country that was a former foe. 

 

If you guessed the Phillipines, you guessed right! Actually, that is the reputation of the ACTUAL president of the philipines

 

Storylines:

 

Sock it to me, Bess or Let Them Eat Drones

The Singapore Exchange – a meaningful territorial accord with Asia Pacific. She ends up getting in a fist fight with a a dirty and dirty Philipine leader, forcing her to decide – like evry woman ever—should she say something? But she can only make this decision after digging into what appears to be the biggest bowl of cereal ever poured. 

 

Usually Julie is here to explain the political gamesmanship of the South China Sea. What you got Liz?

 

Jay Undercover

Bess gets her CIA on and enlists Sadsack Jay to investigate the suspicious death of Kevin from Accountant, a deep cover CIA agent. Turns out Jay is pretty goos at spycraft and undercovers Kevins real mission

 

Duck Dynastys Goes to the Devil

We are rejecting this storyline on the grounds that henry seems way in over hi head. But I don’t trust Ian and his neck tattoos. Not one bit. 

 

Binders Full of Blouses

 

The star of the show—the Carolina Herrera dress Bess wore for seemingly 36 hours without a wrinkle.

Theory White Trench

The Orange Pussy Blouse—again, a political statement????

Men in the Doghouse, Entertaining Sheila
00:55:40

On this New to You show from March 14, 2008, we tackle the gubernatorial sex scandal in NY: Eliot Spitzer, former crusading prosecutor and Governor of NY, is client #9 in a prostitution ring. Dr. Sheila weighs in on his psychological state: "pathological narcissism". Her diagnosis of this out-of-control politician is sounding so familiar now!

Julie puts a number of men "in the doghouse” for insisting that prostitution is a victimless crime including Alan DershowitzJames CarvilleBill Maher

The First Ladies Desk has a lot to say about Mrs. Spitzer. That poor woman stood by her man at his press conference and then Dr. Laura Schlessinger of radio fame was all over TV blaming her for not "doing enough to keep her man at home." Shut it, sister.

Julie has an International News Round-Up about China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Daisy’s Storyline: I think we can all agree that Daisy should stop dating guys from work.

Duck Dynasty goes to the Devil—ugh. I had sort of forgotten about Henrys latest undercover mission—infiltrating an extreme Christian group with a former military guy.

I will never look at neck tattoos the same

I think Henry should never do this job again. I gotta say, he’s not very good at it!

 And then at the end—everything GOES NUTS!!!!

Madam Secretary Recap: The Beautiful game
00:19:25

Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan of the Satellite Sisters recap the CBS drama, Madam Secretary called The Beautiful Game

 

Three storylines

 

Iran/Isreal Peace Deal

 

Nobel Nomination vs. Madam Sexy-tary

 

Personal Toll of grueling diplomacy work

 

First—a shout out to Tim Daly who was in a serious skiing accident at Park City—Julie notes homage to Tim's legs

 

 

First storyline:

 

Iran/Isreal

Well guess what? A complicated middle east peace plan falls apart over major negotiating points like recognizing Isreal’s right to exist and the acknowledgement of Isreal’s nuclear program.

 

But I think we really have to note that bess tries HYGGE to seal the peace deal—the Cozy Lifestyle at Camp David! It fails but didn’t you want to cozy up before the fire in your woolen sock, drink glog and forge peace in the Middle East. That doesn’t work, but soccer does!

 

Second Storyline:

 

Sexy Magazine photo spread undermines Secretary’s professionalism. And it REALLY BUGS Bess. 

Well, maybe if she stopped wearing black lingerie under white blouses! Good and timely storyline…

 

Finally, POOR JAY

 

Touches on the personal lives of the staffers occasionally and I like those storylines. Burn-out is real in DC and it must take a very difficult toll on couples, new parents. Jay’s wife has had it…

 

 

Henry’s weird storyline—all I have to say is that Henry gets into a lot of life threateneing situtaions for a theologian. 

 

Binders full of blouses

Red Puffer Coat

The camel coat

Daisy’s dress

 

and THE CAPE!!

01:06:45

Lian Dolan, Liz Dolan and Julie Dolan of the Satellite Sisters cover the Women's March in Washington DC. Lian attended the historic march in the nation's capital and she has a full report about the spirit of the march, the power of Washington symbols, the success of the Pussy hats and, of course, Madonna. But mainly, the marching. Listen to the newest podcast here.

Plus:

Julie's offers her first First Ladies Desk Report of the new administration. She would like to remind us of the rules of civility that extend not only to the First Lady but to the entire First Family. We can do this, people.

Liz tells us about her visit last week San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. It's a gorgeous historic city in the mountains and a great example of the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE site. She read, she walked and she even took a cooking class at a local school La Cocina. What is this world coming to??

Julie has Tuesday Trends. The first is about Rustic Cuffs. The second is Daybreaker.  She suggests the latter for Liz and Lian in Los Angeles as part of their new morning routines.

Liz reaches a laziness low-point. Blame it on the FitBit. Hear all about it, plus the launch of her Operation Sea Turtle with a Twist.

We have a few gut reactions to the Oscar nominations. Lots of good movies we can get behind this year but there may be a showdown in Best Song. Julie wants Justin Timberlake, of course. Liz wants Lin-Manuel Miranda, of course. And Lian is solidly behind LaLaLand.

We close with a thank you from Liz who is very grateful for all your kind thoughts and messages about the loss of her beloved dog Ferris. Special shout-out to Kathleen from Mountain View CA for a lovely note and to Samantha for posting her fun game on the Satellite Sisters Facebook Group. We love it with a chainsaw.

Madam Secretary Recap: The Detour
00:25:04

The Satellite Sisters Talk TV with their weekly recap of Madam Secretary. This week, Season 3 Episode 12 called The Detour. But it could have have been called The Amazing Race. 

 

3 teams! 

 

One Team goes to Africa on a dilapidated plane with one engine and the Chinese in pursuit

One Team goes to the Department of Defense and tries to pull rank

One Team goes to Crazytown with a Doomsday Cult

 

 

 

Race between The US and China to partner with various Africa nations on windfarms. With the US doing it to promote sustainability and education and China in the race to exploit oil leases. 

 

MSEC, Blake, Daisy and Undersecretary take off in old with a doubting press corp. 

Nice moment at Girls STEM camp. MSEC waxes rhapsodic about Math. But China on their heels.

Bess wins the gamesmanship but loses the PR Battle.

 

Special shout-out to the moving scene at the slave fort between Daisy and the undersecretary—a history lesson and more on MK weekend. Very nice moment

 

 

Race to the DOD for parts

 

I mentioned this because we get a chance to Nadine and Matt try to convince a pentagon colonel that somehow the speechwriter outranks the military man. But Nadine gets her parts. 

 

 

Race to Crazytown

When the FBI says, I’ll be there in 5 minutes, do you have to let them in?

Henry is back on the trail of a doomsday cult he once hunted down. One of the cult members  is selling bombs to isis. Pretend to be a radicalized Islamic terrorist—but Henry gives him the “are you islamic test” and he fails miserable. Theory—cult guy setting up end of the world standoff between the west and isis. Everybody in the truck!!

Liz unveils her Punchlist for 2013 and provides a progress report. It's getting real. She even bought a helmet.

And we anxiously look forward to tonight's Golden Globe Awards. With Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as co-hosts, we actually think of it Golden Globes: Satellite Sisters Edition. Yes, we have a few opinions on who should win, but with those two in charge, we have no doubt we'll be wildly entertained.

Hard to know where to start, so I put together an Inaugeral To Do List for this episode:

 

Confirm Election Results

Find Dress

You're the Best, Nora Ephron, Solid Gold Satellite Sister
00:20:33

We can't think of a better way to start the new year than with our Solid Gold Satellite Sister Nora Ephron. 

We spoke to Nora Ephron upon publication of her book, "I feel Bad About My Neck". Funny, warm and wise, Nora Ephron makes us laugh and cry when talking about aging, friendship and death. We miss you, Nora. You're the best. 

 

Ephron is best known for her romantic comedies and was nominated three times for the Academy Award for Best Writing: for SilkwoodWhen Harry Met Sally..., and Sleepless in Seattle. She won a BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay for When Harry Met Sally.... She sometimes wrote with her sister Delia Ephron.[2] Her last film was Julie & Julia.[2]She also co-authored the Drama Desk Award–winning theatrical production Love, Loss, and What I Wore.[2][3] In 2013, Ephron received a posthumous Tony Award nomination for Best Play for her play Lucky Guy.

You're the Best, Tina Brown, Solid Gold Satellite Sister.
00:19:21

 Journalist and master communicator Tina Brown talks to the Satellite Sisters about her biography of Princess Diana called The Diana Chronicles.  Ten years after her death, Princess Diana remains a mystery. Was she “the people’s princess,” who electrified the world with her beauty and humanitarian missions? Or was she a manipulative, media-savvy neurotic who nearly brought down the monarchy? Only Tina Brown, former editor-in-chief of Tatler, England’s glossiest gossip magazine; Vanity Fair; and The New Yorker could possibly give us the truth.

A fascinating interview because Ms. Brown is an amazing storyteller and communicator. Part of of You're the Best Encore Interviews celebrating the release of our new book. It's a Satellite Sisters Win-Win!

You're the best, Peggy Fleming, Solid Gold Satellite Sister
00:13:41

To close 2016, we want to celebrate some of our Solid Gold Satellite Sisters. The great podcasts just keep coming! Today, we talk to figure skater/commentator/hair idol Peggy Fleming. Listen and you can hear Satellite Sister Julie Dolan hyperventilate as she talks to her idol. Someone get the smelling salts. Peggy Fleming is as gracious with the Satellite Sisters as she could possibly be. And for that, we send her holiday cheer. Of course, we wanted to dish a little bit on some of the skaters-- but it's clear Peggy Fleming does not operate that way, so we stuck to her standards. You're the best, Peggy Fleming!

Who is your your Olympic hero? Which medalist would you love to have the chance to talk to ?

Madam Secretary Recap 31: The Race
00:23:10

It's the Satellite Sisters Recap with Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan. 

Get out your highschool history books! Brinksmanship is back! This was an ambitious episode—presidential election, creating lasting piece between Iran and Isreal, Brinkmanship, Visits to Federal Prison, Charity Runs, way too many trips to the hospital for POTUS and the disc earrings are back. 

 

Breaking it down Random Thoughts style:

 

 

If you’re going to have a heart attack, have it at the White House.  

 

If this was a Disney Channel Show, EMT Stevie would decide to go to med school instead of law school. 

 

National security advisor Helen looks like our cousin Patty.

 

President Dalton appears to be the one person in the Oval Office completely without ego. 

 

I like Bess a lot. She’s smart. But she is not a constitutional scholar or even a lawyer, so having her weigh in on the election lawsuit seemed sort of lame. 

 

Guys coming out of a manhole is never a good sign. 

 

Okay, the McCord brothers are stubborn. We get it. 

 

Prison is cold. Who knew?

 

I wish we lived in a world where one great photo op could win a presidential election. 

 

 Nobody wants to see Russell cry. 

 

Our election drama is over—but not on MSEC.

 

Just how many down coats did Bess have on in that last scene at the charity race? 

 

BOB:

 

Disc earrings

Blue Coat

Daisy’s textures

Black Turtleneck

You're The Best, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Solid Gold Satellite Sister
00:12:21

Our series of You're the Best Encore Interviews continues with Julia Louis-Dreyfus who gets our vote as the funniest women ever on TV. What a pleasure to talk to our comedic heroine from Seinfeld and today's Veep. We talked to her when her sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine was debuting on CBS, a hilarious show about a couple trying to execute a "good divorce." Since then, she's gone on to star in Veep and win a slew more Emmys. Well-deserved, Madam President.

JLD opens up about what it's like to really be a working mom on TV and her most embarrassing mothering moment. It's a winner!

You're the Best Encore interviews will post every Thursday her at satellitesisters.com and on iTunes and other podcast sites. We thrilled to re-visit these interviews from our radio show and share them with new Satellite Sister listeners. Help us celebrate our new book, You're the Best: A Celebration on Friendship, by sharing these shows with your Satellite Sisters.

You're the best, Commander Eileen Collins. Solid Gold Satellite Sister
00:19:29

To end 2016, we want to share with you some of our favorite interviews with favorite Solid Gold Satellite Sisters. This week, we bring you Commander Eileen Collins. 

When the space shuttle Columbia blasted off on July 23, 1999, pilot Eileen Collins became NASA's first female shuttle commander.

Synopsis

In 1990, Eileen Collins was only the second woman to graduate as a test pilot and be selected as a NASA astronaut. She became the first woman to pilot a space shuttle mission during the Discovery's rendezvous with the Mir space station in 1995. By 1999, she had logged 419 hours in space and was given command of the space shuttle Columbia, another first for a woman.

Early Life and Education

Like Amelia Earhart, Valentina Tereshkova (a Soviet cosmonaut and the first woman in space, in 1963), and Sally Ride (the first American woman in space, in 1983), Collins has become a pioneer in the world of aviation, as the first woman to command a space shuttle mission.

From the time she was very young, Eileen Marie Collins wanted to be a pilot. She earned an associate's degree in science from Corning Community College in New York and a B.A. in mathematics and economics from Syracuse University in 1978. After college, Collins enrolled in the pilot training course at Oklahoma's Vance Air Force Base; her class was one of the first at the base to include women. She completed the course in 1979 and then stayed on at Vance for three years as an instructor.

In 1983, Collins was transferred to Travis Air Force Base in California, where she flew C-141 cargo planes as part of various military and humanitarian missions all over the world. She received an M.S. degree in operations research from Stanford University in 1986 and an M.A. in space systems management from Webster University in 1989. That same year, she was accepted at the competitive Air Force Test Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base, also in California. In 1990, she became only the second woman to graduate as a test pilot and was selected to be an astronaut by NASA.

First Female Astronaut

In February 1995, after several years of training with NASA, Collins became the first female astronaut to pilot a space shuttle mission, she served as second-in-command of the shuttle Discovery during its unprecedented rendezvous with the Russian space station Mir. In 1996, she took time off to give birth to a daughter, with her husband Pat Youngs, a former Air Force pilot who works for Delta Airlines. A year later, in May 1997, Collins piloted her second mission, on the shuttle Atlantis, during its delivery of 7,000 pounds of equipment to Mir.

Collins had logged 419 hours in space by the time she was chosen by NASA to become its first female shuttle commander. The shuttle Columbia, under Collins' command, made history on July 23, 1999, when it blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on its way to the deployment of a $1.5 billion telescope into earth's orbit.

In 2005, Collins retired from the Air Force and in 2006 from NASA. Since her retirement, Collins has received numerous awards and honors, including induction into the National Women's Hall of Fame and inclusion on the Encyclopedia Britannica's list of 300 Women Who Changed the World.
