For those of you who aren't already hooked on Lian's Chaos Chronicles podcasts, here's a little background about Lian Dolan who also happens to be my very funny and accomplished sister-in-law.
For the last decade, Lian has been a Satellite Sister. Satellite Sisters is an award-winning talk show, blog, and website that Lian created with her four real sisters. Satellite Sisters has won 8 Gracie Allen Awards for Excellence in Women's Media, including Talk Show of the Year in 2006.

She has used the airwaves to give voice to the issues important to mothers everywhere, as a veteran of the mommy wars, the homework wars, the turn-off-the-TV wars and a new inductee into the Star Wars fan club.
