College Reunions, 13 Reasons Why, Princess Charlotte, Janet Yellen

Julie warns us not to even think about trying to buy that adorable sweater that Princess Charlotte is wearing in her birthday photo by her mom. If it was still available, Urban Nana would have snapped it up herself by now.

On today’s Satellite Sisters podcast we cover Lian’s college reunion, Liz’s annual physical and Julie’s news on 3 international figures: Kim Jong Un, Princess Charlotte and Brigitte Trogneux Macron, likely next First Lady of France.  Plus Operation Sea Turtle, some tech challenges and a movie review/recommendation.

Lian went to her college reunion and took a shift at her old radio station for old time’s sake.  Reunion was awesome.  Radio not so much.  But she remains undaunted and may give it another go. Liz is headed to her college for a women’s leadership conference but become alarmed when she saw these two words on the agenda:  flash mob.  Her policy is that if keynote speaker Janet Yellen dances,  so will she.

We think Janet Yellen looks just as skeptical about participating in the flash mob at this weekend’s women’s leadership conference as Liz feels. Will the Fed Chair get her Beyonce on?

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 only 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 how to talk to your teens and preteens about suicide and this show.  Julie recommends the movie Their Finest as smart, funny, sad and sentimental.  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 would ever sign up for, but if this is your tribe, knock yourselves out.

North Korea Desk, Prince Charles & Prince Harry, Satellite Sisters Santa Monica Weekend

Prince Harry launches Heads together and talks about his own counseling and mental health issues

Prince Harry talks about seeking counseling for his own mental health issues as part of a campaign to end the stigma around mental illness called Heads Together. The sisters agree that Diana would be proud.

Lian Dolan, Liz Dolan and Julie Dolan on the podcast this week. We’re glad that our sister Julie Dolan went to North Korea five years ago because now she qualifies as a expert on the DPNK. Julie’s observations on the latest events in North Korea, the DMZ and Washington. Plus, the latest on Prince Charles and Prince Harry, more on the guy who really invented the internet, a recommendation of a great audiobook and details about our Satellite Sisters “You’re The Best” event this weekend in Santa Monica.

North Korea Desk: Julie reminds us that according to North Korea, the Korean War never ended and current actions by US just play right into the propaganda that the regime has been spouting for 50 years. Julie’s commentary will make you think.

We want to see your favorite personal photos of celebrations of friendship on our Facebook Group or to Instagram. Hashtag is #satsistersytb.  See your in Santa Monica or online.  You’re the best!

Satellite Sisters Santa Monica Weekend Q & A. Liz has been scouting the Santa Monica Public Library and has all her tips for a great day. Plus, information on how to watch the Facebook Live of the Ask Us Anything event. Plus, book sales and an AWAY luggage giveaway.

Prince Charles & Prince Harry. A Royal Report from a surprising source – Liz Dolan. Liz caught up with author/biographer Sally Bedell Smith whose new book is all about Prince Charles. Liz has bad news for Julie. Apparently, he’s not a terrible guy. Info about the author and book here. Then, the latest from Prince Harry about grief and recovery. Listen to the podcast where he discusses Heads Together and his own counseling after 20 years of grief.

The guy that invented the Internet died. And his name was Bob Taylor, the lab boss of the Xerox PARC lab. Here’s his obit. And here’s an appreciation by LAT writer Michael Hiltzek.

A new study reports that female Supreme Court Justices are interrupted in court far more than their male counterparts.  Supreme Court Justices.  They are just like us!

Book Nook: Liz recommends Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders.  His bestselling novel is fantastic as an audible audiobook, with a cast that includes Nick Offerman, David Seders, Bill Hader, Don Cheadle, Susan Sarandon and many more. Well worth a listen.
