New To You: Valentine’s Day, The Grammys, Health + Fitness

The Police reunion at the 2007 Grammys was universally hailed by the Satellite Sisters as “underwhelming”. Lian and Monica both suspect Sting of too much yoga.

Today’s show with Lian, Monica and Liz was originally broadcast on February 12, 2007. Ten years ago this week, we were discussing Valentine’s Day, the Grammys and Health + Fitness.  Just what we are still talking about in 2017! The sisters have a review of the Grammy show the night before including agreements on Carrie UnderwoodThe Dixie Chicks and Prince plus some disappointments with The Police.  

Lian’s son Colin is excited about his new book about groundhogs (his birthday is Groundhog Day) but feels compelled to share his excitement with her at 6 am on Sunday. Monica is just back to Portland Oregon from a vacation to Walt Disney World and to Los Angeles.  She knew the party was over when she opened her American Express bill.

Eve Ensler created The Vagina Monologues in 1996 and went on to launch V Day,a global non-profit movement that has raised over US$100 million for groups working to end violence against women and girls.

Liz has the story of a theatre in Florida that decided they could make up a new title for their current play The Vagina Monologues. On the marquis they went with The Hoo-Ha Monologues.  Luckily for author Eve Ensler,  That’s not really allowed.  Happy V-Day.

Lian recruits a listener to join her watchdog group monitor outlandish wedding announcements in the New York Times.  She find’s this week’s particularly off-putting.

We walk on Billionaires Beach in Malibu.  We talk to our fitness expert Liz Neoporent, and to our nutrition expert Sally Squires of the Washington Post syndicated column Lean Plate Club.  Sally answers the question we all have:  Is there really any such thing as an aphrodisiac?
