Liz wants us all to watch Genius on National Geographic Channel, a ten-part scripted series from Ron Howard about Albert Einstein starring Geoffrey Rush and Johnny Flynn as old Einstein and young Einstein.  She attended the premiere and loved the first “unexpectedly racy” episode – you’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll learn a thing or two about physics! Here’s the extended trailer of Genius.

Lian is reliving her glory days this weekend with a set on her old college radio station.  Liz is refocusing on Operation Sea Turtle in advance prep for her physical next week.

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.

Egg Hunt Ban, Beauty Bar Threat, Julie + her mother-in-law

We post this classic family Easter photo every year because it just makes us smile. It’s the Dolans and the Morningstars with our identical twin moms Edna and Eleanor and our grandfather William Klarman. Can you pick out the sisters? Who’s the rabbit? And what’s Julie’s problem? Photo taken on the front steps of our cousins’ house in Rye, NY.

On this New To You episode of Satellite Sisters from 2014, Julie wants to ban Easter egg hunts, Liz fears the looming threat of beauty bars in her neighborhood, Putin invades Ukraine and Julie mourns the loss of her mother-in-law, with whom she had a very difficult relationship.

Julie calls for the end of Easter egg hunts after witnessing her grandchildren get crushed in their own. Is the word “bloodbath” too strong?? Liz and Julie recall some of their own bruising Easter egg battles with their brothers and cousins as kids.

Julie also talks about her relationship with her mother-in-law, who passed away this weekend.  It was complicated. Her mother-in-law never liked her no matter how hard Julie tried. Now in death, there is grief, sadness and ambivalence.

Liz sees some dangerous trends developing in her neighborhood.  It’s gone beyond blow-dry bars and nail salons.  The latest scourge is the new lash lounge. Don’t people have better things to do with their time and money?

Liz is taking Lian and her sons to a table read for The Simpsons.  They are very excited and don’t care that Julie blames The Simpsons for the downfall of American culture. This new episode of The Simpsons was written by Judd Apatow when he was brand new in Hollywood looking for work.

Liz Dolan to launch a new podcast I Hate My Boss

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.

On today’s Satellite Sisters, Liz explains all about the new podcast she will be hosting called I Hate My Boss.  The first two episodes will launch April 3 but you can listen to a teaser here to get the idea.  Check it out and subscribe at iTunes so you’ll get every new show as its posted. Do you have a dilemma you think she and co-host Larry Seal should tackle?  Call their hotline at 424-224-5711 or email the show at IHateMyBoss@wondery.com.

Want more details?  We’ll be distributing the first episode in the Satellite Sisters feed this weekend but here’s the official press release:

 

WONDERY PREMIERES CAREER ADVICE PODCAST SERIES I HATE MY BOSS

New Podcast Offers Expert Advice And Comedic Relief For Your Daily Workplace Experience

 

LOS ANGELES, March 20, 2017 – Today Wondery announces the launch of their sixth original podcast series I Hate My Boss. The format-busting series will resolve the dilemma most of us have: Whom do I turn to with a tricky question about my workplace, boss or co-workers?

 

In I Hate My Boss, co-hosts and workplace heroes Liz Dolan and Larry Seal will take listeners’ questions and give them advice, with the help of a scripted comedy segment based at the fictional ad agency Penn & Pencil. The characters will serve as points of reference for listeners, and will include a boss who thrives on conflict and an egomaniac yet charming creative director, as performed by UCB-trained actors.

The series will also feature exclusive interviews with thought leaders, who share some of their most difficult and career-defining workplace moments.

“Every workplace has both drama and comedy, so does I Hate My Boss. Add in fear, love, loyalty, betrayal, ambition, frustration, bliss, burnout, self-awareness and denial, and you have an emotional roller coaster. Strap yourself in!” said Dolan.

Dolan, an awarded global marketer, has served as CMO at global brands such as NIKE, OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network and National Geographic Channels. She is also co-host of the long-running podcast and media brand Satellite Sisters, winner of 13 Gracie Allen Awards. Seal, a renowned executive coach and Founder and CEO of EngagedLeadership, has worked with thousands of leaders at over 200 organizations, including Google, Disney, H&M, Lucasfilm, and Sony, and over 70 of the Global 500 companies.

“Using our hearts, humor and hard-won experience, we’ll help you make the big decisions, better sort through the small stuff, and help you get more fulfillment from your work life,” said Seal.

“So many shows give advice about relationships or money – I Hate My Boss will take a space that’s seldom been addressed before: how to love your work and your workplace, in the most entertaining and meaningful possible way,” said Hernan Lopez, Founder & CEO, Wondery.

The first two episodes will premiere April 3rd, with a special sneak preview available today wherever you listen to podcasts. Audiences can submit their burning workplace questions anonymously via the I Hate My Boss hotline at 424-224-5711. I Hate My Boss joins Wondery as the newest original, alongside the critically acclaimed series Inside Psycho, Hollywood & Crime, FOUND, Terms, and Secrets, Crimes & Audiotape.
