It’s HYGGE time! Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan on this week’s Satellite Sisters podcast. Liz is off in Mexico and we couldn’t get her Skype connection to work, so it’s the Tuesday Show Team back in action. This week, us, we jump on the HYGGE Bandwagon. It’s cold and stormy outside but it’s warm and cozy inside– if you live in Denmark. Yes, the Danish Art of Living Life in a State of Cozy is exactly what we need to get us through the winter months. And it’s all the rage, says people in the know. We thought our sister Sheila invented cozy clothes and scented candles but apparently, the Danes have been doing it for years. It’s a lifestyle, it’s a social movement and now, it’s a product line. What’s involved in HYGGE? Lian’s wants in on the candles, the blankies, the hot beverages and the cake. Think warmth, connection, ease and glog. You can check out the HYGGE -ness here from the New York Times or here from The New Yorker (because it’s very New York and not very hygge to do a think piece on cozy.) Say it with us: Hoo-Gah.

Lian Dolan, Liz Dolan and Julie Dolan on the first Satellite Sisters podcast of 2017. We kick off the New Year by announcing our themes for 2017. Each sisters has her own approach to the upcoming year. For Liz, it’s learning to live without Ferris. Julie’s focusing outward with Do More For Others in 2017. Julie vows to do more for others but just for one year. Get your requests in now because she’s not opposed to taking out trash or getting a car serviced qualifies as DO MORE. It’s a major commitment but not for a major amount of time. Lian is going with Keeping It Real. More conversations, interaction with people, books, music, art, theater, fun and less, less, less media and artifice. We kick off 2017 with high hopes. Plus, we announce an ALL SISTER event in Santa Monica in April 2017. Tune in for more details. But save the date and come with your Satellite Sisters!

Fictional Inaugural Week on TV! Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan of the Satellite Sisters recap the CBS drama Madam Secretary episode 311 called Gift Horse. This episode was written by show creator Barbara Hall and was called Gift Horse but could have been called Kitchen Sink because we got it all. A veritable potpourri for our fictional Secretary of State and the rest of the Dalton administration. A stand-out show for Blake the Assistant who was tasked with the job of returning the aforementioned Gift Horse. He was tested emotionally, organizationally and sartorially.
It’s Hard to know where to start, so I put together an Inaugural To Do List for this episode:
