Liz’s new podcast. Lian’s Got Talent? Julie’s got international news.

Liz has a new podcast launching next week called I Hate My Boss. She and her co-host will have some fun trying to help stamp out Bad Bossery and all the other drama that unfolds at the office. Call or write if you have your own dilemma. Workplace drama. Comedic relief.

Liz announces a new podcast she’s doing that launches next week.  It’s called I Hate My Boss.  Hear all about it! Then, Lian’s Got Talent? Oh, wait. No. Lian went to a TAPING of America’s Got Talent with a Satellite Sister from high school and a balloon unicorn. And Julie travels with world in her International News Round-Up: Russia, Malaysia, North Korea, Italy.  You are going to need an AWAY carry-on for this one!

On Monday April 3rd, Liz has a new podcast launching called I Hate My Boss.  Here’s a teaser. She’s co-hosting it with executive coach Larry Seal.  It’s a workplace advice show that combines comedy, drama and common sense.  Please go to iTunes and subscribe.  While you are at iTunes, why not leave a fresh review of Satellite Sisters?  Thanks.  If you want to participate in I Hate My Boss, call the hotline with your own workplace dilemma at 424-224-5711 or email the show at iHateMyBoss@wondery.com.  This weekend, you will get the first episode of I Hate My Boss in your Satellite Sisters feed so you can give it a listen.  You can also reach the show on Facebook or Twitter @IHateMyBossShow.

America's Got Talent Judges

Now that Lian has seen her up close and personal at the taping of America’s Got Talent, she can confirm that Heidi Klum is as beautiful in person as she appears on TV. We are just sorry she has to snuggle up with Simon Cowell.

Also today, Lian tells us the tale of a reunion with a long lost high school friend who came into town to compete on America’s Got Talent.  She can’t share all the details because the show has not aired yet, but you are going to want to get the news on this balloon artist whose ballon unicorn went viral.

Julie has a complete International News Round-Up today. Get the latest stories from Russia, Malaysia, North Korea and Italy.  You should try Gnammo, the app to get a home-cooked meal in Italy before it’s too late. Do you want an AirBNB for food?

Oh, brother. The Prime Ministers of Britain and Scotland meet to talk about Brexit and this is the headline that results?

On another international note, we just have to ask: Is this really necessary?  Thank you to Satellite Sister Zelah Meyer who gave us a little historical perspective on the Daily Mail in the Satellite Sisters Facebook Group.

In the Customer Service Department, both Liz and Julie had a major fail.  Liz has a bone to pick with Target.  Were 16 separate packages REALLY necessary for her 16 cushions? And Julie wants Hertz to know that she’s safe but she’s not HAPPY.

On the issues of #Leggingsgate, all three sisters may disagree on the United airlines dress code but ultimately agree that EVERYONE should wear more clothes on planes.  How about that for a plan? What with your short shorts and flip flops, aren’t you all freezing?

Urban Nana in Brooklyn, DNA Report, Grocery Trends

Dennis Rodman at West Point

North Korea and Malaysia are in the diplomatic tit-for-tat and guess who steps up at West Point to address the issues?  Dennis Rodman. He offers to broker a meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. We cannot make this up, people.

On today’s Satellite Sisters podcast, Urban Nana is in Brooklyn but Julie’s still got the international news from North Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines,  Lian has grocery trends and Worst Pitch of the Day plus Liz wants her DNA to work a little harder for Operation Sea Turtle.

Julie reviews the latest diplomatic tit-for-tat between North Korea and Malaysia over the assassination of Kim Jong Un’s half brother.  Good news for North Koreans who are now not allowed to leave Malaysia. Bad news for the Malaysian delegation in North Korea.  No exit for you. Luckily, we read that Dennis Rodman is stepping in to broker a meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. Let us know as soon as they start selling tickets to that one. Julie also warns the team at our favorite CBS TV drama that the Philippine government is protesting an upcoming episode.  Fact or fiction?  We really can’t tell anymore. Be sure to listen to Satellite Sisters Talk TV recap of Madam Secretary for more discussion of Tess’ Philippine situation.

Satellite Sisters recommend the Fondoodler, a hot glue gun for cheese.

A hot glue gun for cheese? What took so long! The Fondoodler was one of many products that Liz found in the Satellite Sisters email box and cannot wait to try.

Lian says Jeff Bezos is working on amazon deliveries on the moon but Liz is still not that interested in going. Lian has the Worst Pitch of the Week.  Kegels and kids do not mix.  Sorry, Kegel Bear.  Liz gets her latest DNA report from 23andme and is disappointed that their wellness tips are pretty much Self Magazine circa 1988. Lian’s grocery store trends and food trends include the prediction that “grocerants”, part restaurant/part grocery store are the coming thing.  OK, by why not call them “resteries”, a much better fake word. And Liz reads the spam that came into sisters@satellitesisters mailbox.  Highlights include:

We Never Want To See Bridget Jones Have a Baby. Ever. Even Colin Firth’s.

Yes, you are all very attractive. But et's face it, aren't you a little old to be having a baby.

Yes, you are all very attractive. But let’s face it, aren’t you a little old to be having a baby, Bridget Jones?

Tuesday podcast with Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan. Breaking news from the set of Dancing with the Stars. Why is Gov. Rick Perry doing the rumba? Why would anyone bother to protest Ryan Lochte ? And why bother with this season when Laurie Hernandez is gunning for the Mirror Ball? Plus, Lian takes a strong stand on the new Bridget Jones movie. What does Bridget need to have a baby now? She’s old, we’re old, even Colin Firth is old. In my mind, Bridget will always be a drinkin’ and smoking’ singleton. Let her be. Like Jennifer Aniston, I feel like our Bridge doesn’t need a baby to have value. Why can’t we leave one of the best contemporary female characters alone?  Sorry, Bridge, I’ll be re-reading the original book instead of taking in the movie. Plus, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen funny bits in the previews. Poor Emma Thompson.
