Our ongoing series of You're the Best Interviews continue with an Elizabeth Gilbert classic. We spoke to liz Gilbert on the day Eat, Pray, Love was published.

In this conversation, you'll hear Liz, Lian and Monica talk to Elizabeth Gilbert, the way you share your vacation stories with your Satellite Sisters. Fun to hear again. Congratulations to Elizabeth Gilbert on the publication of her new book, Big Magic and her own podcast.

Rank #4: Satellite Sisters Liz and Julie on fitness, fun and news

Podcast cover

On today's Satellite Sisters, Liz Dolan and Julie Dolan tackle a wide range of subjects from the serious to the silly.
First, the awful news from Brussels this week.  Liz was in London when the news broke across the world.  The victims represent many ages, cultures, regions and ethnicities.  Here are some profiles from today's New York Times. 
Julie uses the latest presidential candidate twitter wars about their wives to speak up for the importance of her regular First Ladies Desk features.  As she has always said, leave the ladies alone.
On a lighter note, Julie is just back from a fabulous wedding in New Orleans and she has advice for everyone:  HAVE A WEDDING IN NEW ORLEANS!  She breaks all the reasons why NOLA is more entertaining than, well, than almost anywhere else in the world.  If you know anyone who is about to get married, spread the word people.
Liz wants to talk about three new fitness movements.  First a story from the Wall Street Journal entitled The Gym Class Where You Do Nothing. This class is called Antigravity Cocooning.  We are not too sure that climbing in and out of those hanging cocoons sounds too safe..  Next up, the first 420 Games in Santa Monica.  We can't even explain. Finally, Liz's new deep water aqua aerobics class.  It's all good except for the soundtrack.  But next week's she's going to try Aqua Zumba!
Of course, we have to discuss Boaty McBoatface. How can we not?  Plus, Liz reviews Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and is off to see the new play Women Laughing Alone With Salad.

Rank #10: Satellite Sisters on Benghazi, Brain Surgery and Our Big Book Publication Date October 28!

Podcast cover
Read more
On today's Satellite Sisters podcast, we cover the world from the Benghazi hearings and Brain Surgery Live to Lian's last minute scramble to get ready for some book events.  Don't forget that this Tuesday October 27 is the official publication date of "You're The Best: A Celebration of Friendship" and this Friday October 30 is the first big NYC book launch bash at Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn at 7 pm.  More details on our Events page.
In the news, Liz share's what it's like to wake up in a time zone far, far away and have the Benghazi hearings going on and on and on.  It drove her to her minibar. For the chocolate bar.  Lian and Monica are both curious about the National Geographic Channel show airing tonight: Brain Surgery Live.  Monica is definitely in.  Lian?  Not so much.  Liz also gives us a heads up on a new show about scientific advances called Breakthrough that will debut next month on the channel. 
One of Monica's favorite blogs is Apartment Therapy. They posted this week about what you learn about yourself when you live alone.  Monica also shares some parenting duties  she has taken on this weekend with our niece Fiona Dolan.  Lian and Sheila are skeptical. Meanwhile, Sheila tests out Bank of America's new Teller Assist service.  The sisters don't understand what actual "assist" someone needs at an ATM but Sheila found it soothing.  
Lian has some thoughts on this stupid job title story from the New York Times and some fears about a big book event she is attending tonight.  Apparently, she should have look ed at the invitation sooner.
Finally a Facebook round-up that includes an Oryx on the loose and some awesome Satellite Sisters of the Week contributing to free dental work to the community in Seattle.  
Coming up this week on our 'You're The Best" Encore Interviews are two of our all-time favorites: a very poignant discussion with Elizabeth Edwards and a blockbuster with @bad_robot  JJ Abrams, pre Star Wars but post Felicity.  Please listen and share.  
We hope we will see you this Friday at Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn. Otherwise, have a little party of publication date Tuesday because You're The Best!
