Pizza! Pigeons! Gap Years!

A Pizza Box made out of Pizza. More proof tha Brooklyn is the center of the Universe. Oh, that and the pigeons.

A Pizza Box made out of Pizza. More proof that Brooklyn is the center of the Universe. Oh, that and the pigeons. 

 

Lian Dolan and Julia Dolan on the Tuesday Podcast. We cover news, fitness, college admissions and PIZZA. That’s right, we are going deep on shallow topics- like Pizza. Julie has a theory on why Brooklyn is, in fact, the center of the universe. According to Urban Nana, her favorite borough rules and it has to do with a Pizza box made out of … PIZZA! See the photo above and decide it this carrying system is the best answer to the pizza box question. It sounds both intriguing and cargo-licious. It also sounds fairly unsanitary to eat a box that has traveled through the borough of Brooklyn. Lian is suspicious, but Julie’s makes the case for Brooklyn. Plus, she has another point of excellence that has to do with pigeons lighting up the sky over Brooklyn. Pizza + Pigeons = Center of the Universe

Last Weekend’s New To Yo Podcast: After Tax Film Festival 

 

By |May 3rd, 2016|

Satellite Sisters After Taxes Film Fest

On today’s show Sheila and Monica present their First Annual After Taxes Film Festival because they are too broke to go out.  This podcast is a Satellite Sisters New To You show from May 5, 2008.

On today's After Taxes Film Fest, Sheila and Monica recommend the ultimate concert film, The Band's The Last Waltz.

On today’s After Taxes Film Fest, Sheila and Monica recommend the ultimate concert film, The Band’s The Last Waltz.

The videos they recommend are Ira and Abby,  Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Martin Scorsese’s documentary about the Rolling Stones Shine A Light, and a Satellite Sisters fave The Last Waltz by Martin Scorsese for The Band.  You know this podcast is from back in the day because both Sheila and Monica rented the videos at long-gone Blockbuster. In our iTunes/Netflix/Amazon/Hulu era, these movies are still out there, sisters,  and we still recommend them.

If you miss Levon Helm as much as we do, Martin Scorsese's The Last Waltz will bring him back for a bit.

Also on today’s show, Monica has a special Believe It Or Not Quiz. The theme is:  Products the Lab Rats will never test.  Seaweed shirts. Sexy Time Patch. Galloping Hell Chili Sauce.  Which one is real?

Also discussed: Liz’s lunch with some Nobel Prize economists and whether or not to disclose your compensation to your colleagues.

For Kelly Ripa & #LivingtheMarthaLife

Living the Ripa Life! This one's for you, Kelly. Stay Noisy.

Living the Ripa Life! This one’s for you, Kelly. Stay Noisy.

 

Lian Dolan and Julie Dolan stand with Kelly Ripa on the Tuesday Show. We’re going deep on shallow topics like daytime TV drama and Kelly deserved better. So a special Satellite Sisters dedication to you, Kelly Ripa.  You’re the best. You are the glue that holds that show and maybe even that network together. You’re funny, smart and make oodles of money for the company. Nobody puts Kelly in corner.  Or the Caribbean. This podcast’s for you, Kelly! Plus, we’re loving’ Martha Stewart’s new hashtag-  #LivingtheMarthaLife . Oh yeah, that’s the Satellite Sisters, just wearing ponchos and riding private planes and Living the Martha Life! Oh, wait. Apparently, Martha does want us to re-live her actual life. Instead, Martha wants us to age gracefully with gardening and meditation. And she wants us to make sure we give her full credit when we craft, socialize and detox with her hashtag. It is both brilliants and boastful and that’s what we love about MStew. Read Martha Stewart’s 11 Tips for Aging Gracefully  and the go crazy with the hashtag #livingthemarthalife .

Lab Rats on Dark Chocolate, Lian on Hoover Dam

Today’s show is from our new series Satellite Sisters New To You. The Bitter Business Bureau discussion of hedge funds and the Lab Rats on Dark Chocolate bookend the show, with a full helping of news, talks and laughs in between.

Liz shares her celebrity sightings including John Mayer at the gym and Arnold + Maria in the park.  Lian on her spring break tour of Hoover Dam, Death Valley and several other places our parents never would have taken us when we were kids.

Monica explores the concept of finding your Googleganger – people out there who share your name.  What exactly are they up to?  Do you have anything in common?  Liz and Monica both have Googlegangers.  Lian does not. Apparently,she is the only Lian Dolan in the world.

This edition of Satellite Sisters New To You was originally recorded on April 18, 2008.  Even we are shocked about how relevant most of the discussions are.  Except maybe for the Arnold and Maria situation.
