On today’s Satellite Sisters podcast, Lian Dolan, Julie Dolan and Liz Dolan discuss Condi Rice and Madam Secretary’s uncanny ability to predict the future, news on the future of love + marriage plus new brain science says that we are not meant to live in the now. Plus travel news, fitness update and Robin Wright’s training regimen for Wonder Woman.
First up, we salute the writers of Madam Secretary for anticipating the world’s focus on NATO’s Article 5. Two weeks ago, we had never heard of it. Now, following the recent NATO meeting in Brussels, it’s on every front page around the world. Plus, in Condoleezza Rice’s new book Democracy, she talks about General Muammar Khaddafi having a crazy crush on her. Correct us if we are wrong, but didn’t Madam Secretary nail that plot line earlier in the season with a fictional leader of the Philippines? Crazy coincidence or inside scoop?
According to new scientific research, we’re not meant to live in the moment. Our most human trait is planning for the future. Worriers, Unite! This is good news for those of us who like to lie awake at night and imagine all the ways our future plans could go awry– or right. From the New York Times, We Aren’t Meant to Live in the Moment
Julie’s discussion about modern marriage is sparked by a release about a new book entitled “The New I Do: Reshaping Marriage for Skeptics, Realists and Rebels“. From there, we comment on this runners wedding announcement, this story about planning for divorce and this beautiful piece of Modern Love writing by solid gold Satellite Sister Delia Ephron. Plus First Ladies Desk: Renewing the mission to leave the ladies alone.
Liz bumps into Wonder Woman Amazon General Robin Wright and wants to offer some training advice based on something she said on Colbert. Liz is also not too sure that hanging all the furniture on hotel room walls Shaker-style is a great innovation but she’s happy to see the hotel minibars go. Lian is excited about the announcement of Alanis Morrisette’s new musical. You oughta go!
