Liz Dolan, Julie Dolan and Lian Dolan on the Satellite Sisters podcast for 11.01.16 with news, talk and laughs and out love of the Barefoot Contessa. This week on the show, we share our Newscation Strategies, otherwise known as how to save our saintly until this election is over. If the negativity and nonsense of the 2016 Election has gotten you down, caused election anxiety or triggered stress eating, step away the Twitter. Lian suggests two things: vote early and cooks one of Ina Garten’s delicious recipes from her new Barefoot Contessa Book, Cooking For Jeffery. Liz report on her ups and downs of trying to stay away from election coverage. And honestly, it’s been more downs than ups with her daily 538 Podcast addiction. She did manage to get on board with the Ina Garten strategy and found herself absorbed in this article from People Magazine: Ten Things You Didn’t Know About Ina Garten’s Husband Jeffrey The Satellite Sisters agree: Ina and Jeffrey Garten are the anecdote to the election news and pretty good write in candidates.

Plus, Julie does an International News Round Up:
