Today on the Satellite Sisters Podcast, we cover everything from Beauty & The Beast to DWTS, from March Sadness to Brian’s Song. But we start Sisters in the News. What do Angela Merkel & Liz Dolan have in common? Lian will tell you. It’s a body language thing. And who could use a little bit of the indefatigable energy of Julie Dolan? The Secretary of State, that’s who. Lian Dolan on the headline news that made her think of her sisters.
First up, Lian attends the Fencing Grand Prix in Long Beach, CA. Thanks, USOC, for the invitation. You know the Satellite Sisters are Olympic junkies but who knew that fencing was its own lifestyle?? Now Lian knows.
In the news, Lian sees parallels between Liz and Angela Merkel. Apparently, they went to the same school of body language. Cue the eye roll. Plus, Lian notes that our international correspondent Julie is indefatigable and would be an excellent candidate for an open slot at the State Department. Hello, Rex?
The New York Historical Society has opened a new center devoted to the contributions of women in American history, the only one of its kind in the United States. Plus, Lian reports that Nevada just approved the E.R.A. Remember the Equal Rights Amendment? Julie still has her button.
Urban Nana Julie has a few problems with children’s museums based on her recent visits to one in Brooklyn with her granddaughter Josephine. Plus, on her Tuesday Trends she has a question from the Wall Street Journal: Is your refrigerator awesome enough?
Are your brackets all busted for March Madness? So long Villanova and Duke. Liz introduces us to March Sadness, a sad song contest she heard about on OPB. It was created by Julie Hahn in Boise and features a whole category of sad songs called Sadsteen. Songs of misery from the Boss himself. The River. Streets of Philadelphia. The Ghost of Tom Joad. He’s the master. All songs listed on the March Sadness Facebook Group under Files once you join.
Speaking of sad, new reports tell us that the great Chicago Bear Gale Sayers is suffering from dementia. If you don’t remember Gale Sayers on the field, you may remember him as played by Billy Dee Williams in one of the best TV movies of all-time, Brian’s Song. James Cann plays the dying Brian Piccolo. It’s a Satellite Sisters Sobfest.
Operation Sea Turtle, Liz’s fitness program, hits a snag called Yoga Sculpt Fusion.
Lian admires the Disney genius in creating the new Beauty and The Beast products. Are you in line right now for the new tumbler?
Plus updates on from Lian on her dance group, Steffi the German Shepherd and her vegetable garden.
Come join all five Satellite Sisters on April 22nd at the Santa Monica Public Library at 2 pm. No-host Meet-Up to follow at Ester’s Wine Shop. Are you coming? Thanks to Away Luggage for donating a door prize for this event. Lian loves her Away Carry-On. Come win one!
