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.
