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.

April 1, 2012: Newflash- The Satellite Sisters did not win the lottery. But please tell us if you did.

Happy April Fools Day. It’s the anniversary of our very first Satellite Sisters radio broadcast! Lian, Sheila, Liz and Julie share the weeks events plus a Listener Mailbag with questions + observations pulled from our Satellite Sisters Facebook Group page. Listen here: April 1, 2012 Satellite Sisters

Are you holding a ticket with these numbers on them? Would you like to support your favorite podcast?

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? This sounds like the kind of arguments that Satellite Sisters would offer, not fancy legal scholars. Plus she has a theory about how the decision will become public. 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.

Lian: Liz for the Supremes

Let’s be rational about this. I was excited to hear that a spot on the Supreme Court was opening up because I thought finally, finally, Liz was in a good spot to get the nod. But, maybe the timing isn’t good? Maybe there are other issues? Liz, help me out here!

Still, I’m surprised I don’t see the name “Liz Dolan” on any short lists. I’m sure this is an oversight and once the search team gets down to business, Liz will make the cut. And, because I know Liz is busy running a TV network and bringing fro-yo to my mom in this hospital, I made a little Pros and Cons list for her. It’s big decision, moving to Washington for the rest of your life. Here we go…

Pros and Cons about Liz Dolan becoming a Supreme Court Justice.


Liz doesn’t wear that much black anymore. Since she moved to LA, Liz has embraced a softer side of the color palette: browns, grays, blues. Not so much black as her NYC days. She could “soften” the robe like Ruth B-G does with lace collars. Liz could wear Gap gauze scarves for younger touch.

John Roberts already has top job. Liz likes to be in charge. Control the “show flow”, as we used to say. Could be hard for her to let somebody else “run the meeting”, especially another smarty pants like JR.

Technically, Liz is not a lawyer. But she has been our legal counselor for years and look where we are. Still, could make confirmation challenging.

DC is not LA. We like Liz here. She’s a good time. We’d miss her and Ferris, of course.


Not that many hours. Those Supremes work like 5 months a year. Ample vacation and lots of support staff. Clerks could plan family Thanksgiving at Smithsonian which would be awesome!

Job for life. The benefits look excellent. Much better then the Satellite Sisters package which is limited to a lifetime supply of “Satellite Sister” press kits and cork-backed coasters with logo.

Sticking it to all the MBAs, JDs, and old boyfriends. Think of the emotional satisfaction at college reunions when you show up and you are a Supreme Court Justice thanks to your Comparative Literature major! No grad school, suckers! And what are your better educated classmates/roommates/old boyfriends doing? “Consulting.” Yes!

College recommendations for nieces and nephews. Like my children. Just saying, Liz, really.

I think the choice is obvious, Liz. And you too, Mr. President.
