On today’s Satellite Sisters podcast, Faith Salie is our special guest. Faith’s new book is Approval Junkie: Adventures In Caring Too Much. You know Faith from her commentaries on CBS Sunday Morning and as a panelist on NPR’s Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me.
In our discussion of Approval Junkie, Liz raises three red flags with Faith. 1) Marrying her “wasband”, 2) seeking fame as a sitcom star, and 3) coming out against pets on CBS Sunday Morning. On this third item, we respect her POV and desire to speak her pet truth on this but for God’s sake Faith, NEVER read the comments! She knows that now. We re sorry she learned the hard way. Whether its about the new Ghostbusters or female candidates like Hillary Clinton and Carly Fiorina, the comments section is where it gets ugly.
Also on today’s show, we discuss the fall of Roger Ailes at Fox News after the accusation of sexual harassment brought forward by Gretchen Carlson. Julie raised this issue on last week’s podcast. It takes a lot for a woman to step forward and accuse a man in power of abusing that power. Kudos to you, Gretchen. You know what we have to say on this: #staynoisy. Here’s the New York Times story on the culture inside Fox News that allowed sexual harassment to continue.
Liz has a lot of explaining to do about the pink booties she bought for Ferris. He’s an old guy now and has trouble standing. He needed some gripping socks but did they have to be pink??
Julie starts Nana Camp in Colorado this week. Its all about outdoor activities but with plenty of time set aside for naps. For all.
