What is Angie thinking in this moment as she gazes at Brad Pitt? That she needs to dump this loser? We find ourselves on #TeamBrad with today’s divorce news. Brad, baby, call us.

On today’s Satellite Sisters, we handle the breaking news of the Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt divorce.  Liz has a history with Brad Pitt. Liz slept with Brad Pitt a few years ago. It’s true. Details on today’s podcast.  Is this a #liznessnotbizness sign from the universe that Brad is in Liz’s future?  She also asks Julie for a little dream interpretation.  Liz had a dream involving LLCoolJ and auto bodies.  What does it all mean?  If you have thoughts, please post on the Satellite Sisters Facebook Group.

The latest on #liznessnotbizness. While on a few days vacation in NYC last week, Liz did a Hamilton/Spamilton double. She saw both the Broadway superhit and a spoof of the Broadway superhit on the very same day.  Yup.  She’s a hard core #Hamilfan.  Both were fantastic!  We recommend!

Julie has several trends for Tuesday Trends today. First about CEO of Lyft says they are going to all self-driving cars within five years.  Second trend is about how people no longer want to sit at restaurants. Julie’s third trend is a new sport called Forest Bathing. Whaaaa?  Next, how do you feel about electronic implants instead of house keys or car keys?  Whose bright idea was that?

Brothers. We love 'em. Including the ultimate brotherhood called The Beatles. See this new documentary in the theatre or streaming on Hulu. Joyful. Wistful. Beautiful.

Brothers. We love ’em. Including the ultimate brotherhood called The Beatles. See this new documentary in the theatre or streaming on Hulu. Joyful. Wistful. Beautiful.

Liz awards the Satellite Sisters of Week to the Brownlee brothers Jonny and Alistair. They are both international triathletes and Olympic medalists but their performance at a race in Cozumel was the best.  When brother Alistair lost his mojo and became confused near the finish, Jonny literally picked him up and pushed him over the finish line. That’s heart.  Love these sibling stories.

As long as we are talking about brotherhood, we heartily recommend the new Beatles documentary 8 Days A Week:  The Touring Years.  Liz saw it at a packed Monday afternoon matinee.  The documentary includes interviews with Paul and Ringo plus Elvis Costello, Whoopi Goldberg and Malcolm Gladwell. In the theatre, you get a bonus 30 minute digitally remastered film of their famous Shea Stadium concert. If you want to watch at home instead, you’ll find it on Hulu.

For the start of the TV season, Julie recommends a process for how to decide what to watch.  Liz repeats her recommendation that PITCH debuting on Thursday night on FOX is definitely worth checking out.

Finally, we announce the launch of our new Satellite Sisters season next week. It’s season 16, people.  Can you believe it?? Starting next Tuesday, Liz, Julie and Lian will be on every Tuesday.  Lian and Julie will also do their TV recaps for Poldark starting with Sunday Sept 25 Secretary and Madam Secretary starting October 2, 2016. Monica and Sheila both of have other professional and personal commitments so they will not be on any of the news shows but you can continue to hear them on our New To You shows that will continue to be released on the weekends. Our complete audio archive can always be found at www.satellitesisters.com/listen.

Bad Restaurant Names, Good Body Washes

On today’s Satellite Sisters, we bring you Julie, Liz, Sheila and Monica on bad restaurant names and good body washes.  This is a New To You show from September 15, 2008.

Yes, it's true. In Julie's old neighborhood in Bangkok there was a restaurant named Cabbages and Condoms. Turn left for vasectomies, right for pad thai.

Monica has a souvlaki situation.  What should she do at the new Pita Pit? This prompts a discussion of bad restaurant names. Liz recalls Cookies and Couscous on Sheila’s old block in Greenwich Village.  Monica loves Cabbages and Condoms from when Julie lived in Bangkok, Thailand.  She is also excited about a new restaurant she read about called Permanent Brunch. What’s not to love?

Julie wants to tackle the issue of hugging in the workplace.  Yes?  No?  What say you, Satellite Sisters?  How do you know when to hug and when a warm handshake will do?  Don’t even get us started on kissing!

Liz brings Sheila a new magazine about the single life called Singular.

The Lab Rats Sheila and Monica bring you their report on body washes.  They’ve already tackled scrubs, soaps and sugars.  They do it for you, people.

We Never Want To See Bridget Jones Have a Baby. Ever. Even Colin Firth’s.

Yes, you are all very attractive. But et's face it, aren't you a little old to be having a baby.

Yes, you are all very attractive. But let’s face it, aren’t you a little old to be having a baby, Bridget Jones?

Tuesday podcast with Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan. Breaking news from the set of Dancing with the Stars. Why is Gov. Rick Perry doing the rumba? Why would anyone bother to protest Ryan Lochte ? And why bother with this season when Laurie Hernandez is gunning for the Mirror Ball? Plus, Lian takes a strong stand on the new Bridget Jones movie. What does Bridget need to have a baby now? She’s old, we’re old, even Colin Firth is old. In my mind, Bridget will always be a drinkin’ and smoking’ singleton. Let her be. Like Jennifer Aniston, I feel like our Bridge doesn’t need a baby to have value. Why can’t we leave one of the best contemporary female characters alone?  Sorry, Bridge, I’ll be re-reading the original book instead of taking in the movie. Plus, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen funny bits in the previews. Poor Emma Thompson.
