    FAVORITES: Julie's Tale of the Slobbery Tennis Ball, Sheila on Science, Lian's TV Habits

    FAVORITES: Julie's Tale of the Slobbery Tennis Ball, Sheila on Science, Lian's TV Habits

    FAVORITES: We've never solved this 2008 mystery of Julie, the stranger and Zorro's slobbery tennis ball. Lian, Monica and Sheila can't believe Julie was so trusting with an odd request. What started as a "sticky situation" became a potentially dark tale. Julie recommends a new play based on Little House on the Prairie that's on stage in Minnesota. Lian has some new TV habits. Her household has become a Nick At Night household. Science with Sheila! Sheila has a list of the 10 things not to worry about on vacation from science writer John Tierney of The New York Times. Killer hot dogs, shark attacks, unmarked wormholes. Plus big entertainment news from Sheila: She's been cast in a reality show. She's Dating Brad Garrett?

    FAVORITES: Lian Interviews Dave Barry + Ridley Pearson, Lab Rats Test Soy Milk

    FAVORITE! Originally published in 2007, this Summer '24 FAVORITES episode of Satellite Sisters features Lian Dolan interviewing Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson about Peter and the Secret of Rundoon, part of their YA book series Peter and the Starcatchers. First, Sheila Dolan and Monica Dolan (aka The Lab Rats) test three kinds of soy milk with mixed results. Some paws up. Some paws down.

    FAVORITES: College Drop-Off Dolan-Style!

    FAVORITES: College Drop-Off Dolan-Style!

    FAVORITE episode from 2015. Liz and Lian discuss some crazy college drop-offs in our family's past. Hilarity ensues. No helicopter parents for us. 
    Hear the details of Lian's drop-off at Pomona, Liz's at Brown, Monica's at Georgetown and Sheila's at a Howard Johnson Motor Lodge.
    Plus strategies for not eating that half a blueberry pie and a news round-up including the Chilean miners and Larry King. Lian and Liz both have suggestions for who should get Larry King's timeslot including Katie Couric, Bob Costas and pretty much anyone but Piers Morgan.

BL the Librarian ,

Intelligent, hilarious, timeless!

Production may have slowed on this podcast, but I’m here to say that listening to the archived shows is always entertaining! These women are funny, bright, kind, and refreshing. I’m back to 2016 and will probably just start over once I’ve listened to them all. Take a break from politics and listen to something that you’re not afraid for your children to overhear!

Fitness and Aging

This was my favorite show ever. You answered every question I had. We keep hearing about how strength training is so important as we age, but what is it exactly? I loved hearing that yoga, walking, Pilates, planks, etc all count as strength training! Yay, I had already been doing those things, but thought I had to start lifting weights.

Looking forward to the menopause episode.

My Number One Podcast
