Satellite Sisters Mother’s Day Special: LIVE Show in Santa Monica

Satellite Sisters twin sisters Edna and Eleanor

How beautiful is this photo of our mother Edna with her twin sister Eleanor during their high school years? We are not totally sure which one is which but we think our mother is the one with the nail polish.

Welcome to a Satellite Sisters Mother’s Day Special. Today’s podcast is the audio from our live show in Santa Monica.  Julie Dolan, Liz Dolan, Sheila Dolan, Monica Dolan and Lian Dolan are joined onstage by our former Executive Producer and Solid Gold Satellite Sister Corny Koehl for  spontaneous, freewheeling and fun Ask Us Anything session.  Special thanks to Storyworth for sponsoring today’s podcast. Use our link and get $20 off your subscription.

In a special intro recorded this week, Liz and Lian salute all the mothers in the Satellite Sisterhood with a special shout-out to Emmy Koehl, Corny’s mom who was a key part of our event crew in Santa Monica.  Emmy, you rock.

Also in the intro, we talk about a special photo of all 5 sisters with our mother, so we have posted that photo here. Plus, going into the family archives, here’s our mother Edna with her twin sister Eleanor.  We are not exactly sure when this photo was taken but we are guessing it was during their high school years.  That’s a beauty, isn’t it?

Satellite Sisters Gracie Awards 2008

On today’s special Mother’s Day podcast, Lian and Liz talk about this favorite photo of Edna Dolan’s appearance with all 5 sisters at the Gracie Awards in 2008.

One note on the audio from the Santa Monica show:  This is extracted from the Facebook Live feed of the show so it is not top quality.  Hang in, though, because it’s still worth a listen.  Hilarity ensues.  If you want to watch the whole show from the Facebook Live video, go here and be sure to LIKE our Facebook Page so you get all our new videos and posts.

Janet Yellen, Pippa Middleton, Complete Solar Eclipse, Butt Glitter

 

Pippa Middleton No Ring No Bring

Julie is incensed at Pippa Middleton’s No Ring No Bring policy for her wedding, so the rest of the sisters are incensed on her behalf. Going to weddings solo is a downer, even if there’re  plenty of paparazzo to provide excitement.

On today’s Satellite Sisters podcast, Liz reports on her college conference with Janet Yellen, Julie has a royal report including Pippa Middleton and Prince Philip and Lian shares what Google tells us about our lives versus Facebook.  Plus Tuesday trends and a movie review of Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

First up, Liz and some college friends took in Janet Yellen’s speech at Brown University on Friday.  Fed Chair Yellen wanted us to understand that removing the impediments from women’s full participation in the workforce could improve the US’s annual economic output by 5%, a huge number.  Those impediments?  Lack of paid maternity leave, childcare and flexible work schedules.  Surprise.  Liz admits the she was hoping for more behind the scenes dish from Yellen, but apparently Fed Chairs don’t dish.

Julie thinks Pippa Middleton’s No Ring No Bring rule for her wedding is grossly unfair, not just to Prince Harry but to everyone ever forced to attend a wedding solo. Julie celebrates Prince Philip’s retirement from public life by sharing his worst racist public gaffes.

Where will you be during this summer’s total solar eclipse? Liz will be “in the totality” in Central Oregon, whatever that means.

Our Facebook Life versus your Google Life.  Lian agrees. Don’t let Facebook make you miserable, says  in the New York Times.  Try googling “My husband is…” and see what comes up first.

Are you planning to take in the August 2017 total solar eclipse in the US?  Liz is and she’s positioning the get “in the totality” in Central Oregon.

Julie’s Tuesday Trends and Lian’s Hodgepodge: Mantras in the Wall Street Journal,  Butt Glitter everywhere else.

Early Mother’s Day Gift: Cozy Couch Edition

Satellite Sisters and Woman's World Magazine

Is there anything more relaxing than hanging out on the Cozy Couch and reading Tips To Clip from grocery store checkout line magazines? The Satellite Sisters say no!

Today’s New To You episode from May 2012 is our early Mother’s Day gift to you. Sheila and Liz are on the Cozy Couch for the whole show.  Smart new uses for soap shards, tips to clip and some instant stress relievers that are also slimming.  Who knew that grocery store magazines contained so much wisdom? And you need it because, as Sheila says, “life is stressful and there’s a lot of bloating.”

College Reunions, 13 Reasons Why, Princess Charlotte, Janet Yellen

Julie warns us not to even think about trying to buy that adorable sweater that Princess Charlotte is wearing in her birthday photo by her mom. If it was still available, Urban Nana would have snapped it up herself by now.

On today’s Satellite Sisters podcast we cover Lian’s college reunion, Liz’s annual physical and Julie’s news on 3 international figures: Kim Jong Un, Princess Charlotte and Brigitte Trogneux Macron, likely next First Lady of France.  Plus Operation Sea Turtle, some tech challenges and a movie review/recommendation.

Lian went to her college reunion and took a shift at her old radio station for old time’s sake.  Reunion was awesome.  Radio not so much.  But she remains undaunted and may give it another go. Liz is headed to her college for a women’s leadership conference but become alarmed when she saw these two words on the agenda:  flash mob.  Her policy is that if keynote speaker Janet Yellen dances,  so will she.

We think Janet Yellen looks just as skeptical about participating in the flash mob at this weekend’s women’s leadership conference as Liz feels. Will the Fed Chair get her Beyonce on?

Julie is following the latest on President Trump’s openness to meet with “smart cookie” Kim Jong Un.  She speculates on the perfect place for such a meeting. Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte has turned two and we love her mom’s photo of her. She may only be fourth in line to the throne but that’s the world’s cutest sweater. And did you hear the details of how Brigitte Trogneux met her husband Emmanuel Macron? Unusual.

Lian shares some information about Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why and some advice on how to talk to your teens and preteens about suicide and this show.  Julie recommends the movie Their Finest as smart, funny, sad and sentimental.  And Lian will be moderating a great Pasadena Magazine Women in Business panel with some very accomplished women in media.  Hear all about it on the podcast and buy tickets here

On Operation Sea Turtle, Liz’s heath and fitness plan, she provides the Moment of Truth episode.  Two moments: 1) her annual physical and weigh-in and 2) an observed moment of sisterhood in her water aerobics class.

Here’s a terrible cycling hospitality idea that none of the Dolan sisters would ever sign up for, but if this is your tribe, knock yourselves out.

Mega Millions, Supreme Court News, Barcelona

Mega Millions

The Mega Millions jackpot this week inspired Lian’s latest lottery dreams. Don’t you love having those fantasies? We do.

This is a New To You show from April 1 2012. On today’s show, Lian, Sheila, Liz and Julie dream of Mega Millions, discuss Supreme Court news and Liz gets caught in some light rioting in Barcelona. Plus a Listener Mailbag with questions and observations pulled from our Satellite Sisters Facebook Group.

In the news, Lian loves a lottery!  So much bonding over the Mega Millions.  Julie finds the Supreme Court arguments about the health care law surprisingly lowbrow.  Broccoli? Cell Phones?  We thought this was about the law!  Plus she has a theory about how the decision will come out.  Sheila tells us a little more about her daily patterns around Pasadena.  There’s a new stop in addition to her usual Vons, BofA and Zushi Sushi. And Liz missed all the lottery and Supreme Court excitement this week, but did experience to total happening in Barcelona.  She’s not one to let a little light rioting spoil a good time.

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.
