The Satellite Sisters are the fastest rising stars on public radio - five real sisters who grew up in a big family, grew apart, and then grew closer again, connecting as adults in a positive, supportive way. They have five personalities, five points of view, and five very different lives joined by a common bond. They are sisters in blood and in spirit-a connection that's uncomplicated and complex at the same time.

But you don't have to have a sister to be a Satellite Sister. A Satellite Sister can be your best friend from high school, your walking partner, your great neighbor, your college roommate, or your friend from Mommy and Me. Your Satellite Sisters make you laugh, tell you when you're wrong, cheer you on, offer advice whether you want it or not, and help you make it through the day.

In Satellite Sisters' UnCommon Senses, the Dolan sisters share their approach to life-an approach that's rooted in big-family wisdom. Their theory: There are the five senses you're born with, and then there are the five UnCommon Senses you acquire when you grow up in a family of ten (5 sisters + 3 brothers + 2 parents), which prepare you for life in the real world.
