Modi:

Hello and welcome to and here's Modi. I'm here with Leo and Periel today. We are we are sponsors, sponsors right now. I thought we were gonna wait five minutes. No, we can. You wanna wait five minutes? We were told that the sponsors get better read when it's five minutes into the show, but we've been doing it up front.

Periel:

Weitzandweitzluxcom, weitzluxcom, and they do well, but they also.

Modi:

No, they do well. They do well and they also do good. They're very philanthropic. That was one of the lines we used for that. Okay, it's Monday. After a Sunday, it's 6.51pm. Yeah and we're dragging butt a little bit. No, we're not, we are. I'm not. I'm on a half a Celsius right now. That's why I said that there was an article yesterday about me and Leo yeah.

Leo:

I was in page six.

Modi:

Yeah, we were in page six, and not because we were drunk in a bar and not because we were arrested. Modi didn't meet to anyone. He didn't meet to anyone. He didn't touch anyone that he shouldn't be touching. I was on page six just for being me, and they mentioned the Joseph Comedy Festival and everybody that's on that and what a fun treat that was.

Periel:

How surprised were you guys to see that.

Modi:

Well, I did the interview with Nikki and she called up. She was just, she's a writer.

Leo:

She reached out on the website and she was like hi, I'm with page six, I want to talk to Modi. And I looked her up. I was like is this real?

Modi:

Yeah, because I just thought it would be something that just wants to yent and find out about what it is. But she's a Yashiva girl who, yeah, she just kept seeing this Mashiach energy, mashiach energy. She's like who is this guy with this Mashiach energy called up? She looked us up and she called and we had a great talk and one of the funniest things she said in the interview was how do you feel about sushi at every Jewish event? It was so funny because those of you who don't know, whenever you go to any kosher Jewish event, that's worth its weight. Any kosher Jewish event has sushi. Now, I don't know when it became a thing. I don't know why it's a thing. It's just everywhere you go, they have a Mexican guy with an apron and a hat making sushi. It is so insane and she literally besides asking me all the questions where are you from? What do you do? How does this happen? Blah, blah, blah, blah. What do you feel about sushi at every Jewish event? I'm not complaining.

Periel:

Is it like good sushi though?

Modi:

Sometimes, sometimes, yeah, sometimes it's good if people money at it. Yeah, it's good if it's not.

Periel:

Is sushi kosher 100%.

Modi:

it's fish Super kosher Two in a salmon cucumber roll. Cucumber roll avocado roll. Okay, that's not there's no eel, there's no shrimp, but there is fake shrimp.

Periel:

That's kosher. Okay, that's gross, but so fish is kosher even just by nature of being like it doesn't have to be.

Leo:

Well, there are certain fish that are not kosher, yeah, so like sushi at like Sushi like a salmon roll or a tuna roll, like those types of easily.

Periel:

They make it beautiful.

Leo:

sometimes the orthodox juice can go to like nobu and have like.

Periel:

I don't know about that, because nobu also has shrimp.

Leo:

I'm just asking.

Modi:

The pork is now cutting the sushi, so it's not kosher, okay okay, forget that Back up for a second.

Periel:

So any sushi is it's cause, like there's like kosher chicken, like you have to go to the supermarket and you can't just get chicken, you have to get kosher chicken. For fish it's the same thing. Or any fish is kosher.

Modi:

You want a fish that's from a kosher place because they it didn't mix with other things that weren't kosher.

Leo:

Yeah, but you'll eat salmon that I buy from a place that's not technically yeah.

Periel:

Forget him, though. I'm just trying to understand in general how this works.

Modi:

Fish is kosher.

Leo:

The phenomenon that we're talking about here.

Modi:

The phenomenon that I'm talking about here by rabbi is moody. The phenomenon that I'm talking about here is that anytime you go to even a kosher pizza place, they have sushi.

Periel:

Right, but it's gross. Nobody wants to eat that sushi, by the way.

Modi:

I will give a shout out. I will give a on the house. Shout out in the five towns we take the promo for the chosen comedy festival, what should be airing soon at this place called Bravo Pizza. It's in the five towns, behind the Trader Joe's. I have not had such good pizza in a very long time. And I go to the guy where's the sushi section? He goes we're not doing sushi, we only do amazing pizza. Good, and that was big. So shkoye to Bravo Pizza.

Periel:

Kosher pizza is often, I have to say, pretty good. I don't know why. And also, how can pizza be not kosher? Isn't it just cheese?

Modi:

and I have to mix pepperoni on it, and all that because not kosher.

Periel:

No, but just regular pizza, cheese pizza, cheese pizza can't be not kosher, right.

Modi:

So it's kosher if you don't care about the hashgacha, If you don't want to mix it too much. This is too much. What are you slapping this thing?

Periel:

for what do you mean? I'm the one here who's just trying to understand these rules. I'm just a pizza. I'm not the one who-.

Leo:

The kitchen is kosher. They're not bringing in. They're not also making pepperoni pizzas on the side. Like everything's a contained environment.

Periel:

But if the only thing that you do is not have pepperoni?

Leo:

then any pizza is kosher. There's other things involved. You have to whatever. I'm not-.

Periel:

Rabbi.

Modi:

I am not qualified to be a way. You know. You know that it's not no, okay we can move on If you look into any pizza place in Manhattan, that's not a kosher pizza place. They have things that aren't kosher that are making this pizza not kosher, Right, Okay, so you go to a kosher pizza place. They have everything there is kosher. There's no meat stuff.

Periel:

Right, I get the meat part of it. I'm just saying that the pizza itself. If I open a pizza place and the only thing I make is cheese pizza, it's kosher.

Modi:

Yes, but you need to still have a certification that it's kosher Well, Leo can give me one. It's even more complicated than that. Do you understand the fact that this pizza is in an oven and the oven is self-costuring itself all the time it is? I cannot believe we could spend 50 minutes on this with no problem.

Periel:

Yeah, it's too much, though, but I don't think the audience wants to hear this. Well, you guys tell us, let us know.

Leo:

I read a story about someone accidentally burning their house down, trying to kosher their house for Passover.

Modi:

Many times. Oh my God, wait, are you kidding me? The Stop it, because they use that flame thrower thing, I'll see your story and raise you a story. In the Catskills there's a place called the Villa Roma. It's the Italian hotel in the Catskills and they do, or they used to do, a Passover program there. So they made the kitchen kosher. They burnt the entire hotel down.

Periel:

Come on, you guys.

Modi:

Yeah, you have to go to blow torch. Through the whole thing it was-. No, I'm sorry it was a very, very funny thing. Or maybe it was an insurance scam, I don't know, but I know that they burnt down the Italian, the Villa Roma is like in those hotels you have to drive the last it's our second insurance thing. We're on the highway 39 miles into the exit and then into a farm under a hill, over a barn. Schindler didn't hide the Jews this good. I'm telling you. That hotel was hidden so bad. And then the Jews burnt it down for Passover At a new rate. But as I was mentioning to you, I was in page six with a positive spin, that's what she's after Najee.

Periel:

That's what she's after Najee. Can you please just explain to me what the flame thrower is? It gets all the little crummy crumbs. A blow torch. It's a blow torch, but that's basically a flame thrower. You're being serious? Yes, you-. This is how you make something kosher with a blow torch.

Modi:

It's how you turn an oven, kosher, or you can put it at 550 degrees. We're not doing-.

Leo:

You're just basically sterilizing it with fire. Yes, so anything that could have been in contact with the surface is now null and void, because you've burned it off.

Modi:

Not Leo giving you lessons.

Leo:

Yeah, get it together. I mean really Literally. Truly.

Modi:

By now you should be a little bit-.

Leo:

We've had a weird day today.

Periel:

It was just very long.

Leo:

You've been with us all day and we're like in a thruple menage-e-tois situation at this point.

Periel:

It was just intense. We had it was good Boardrooms were involved. We went to boardrooms.

Modi:

We were in a boardroom today with somebody who was Post-it.

Leo:

Lots of post-it notes flying around.

Periel:

That made me really happy, all those post-it notes are good and Mike are good for my OCD.

Modi:

Did you see how I sat there? We were in a meeting today. I'm not gonna say we got, but just it doesn't matter, it's fine. We were in a meeting with and it was it's not like a secret. It was so. It was so. I felt like I was in an episode-.

Periel:

It was out of a movie. It was out of a movie.

Modi:

It was out of a movie, she was a character.

Periel:

We should have taped it, it was so good, we should have taped it Next to it, we'll tape it.

Modi:

The whole agent is. I'm sure she'll be happy to do it. She'll so happy she's so. I've never she's amazing. That energy is insane. And I sat there. I'm like wow.

Leo:

But even the office was like out of a movie, yeah, like just decorated.

Periel:

So well, that might be the first episode of the TV show.

Modi:

And everybody's sitting there with their ideas and everybody's just going through, and then there's this one assistant pulling it all together. Oh, she was amazing, amazing. And then-.

Leo:

And then that archetype of the assistant slash party planner, slash event organizer.

Periel:

I liked it. She came and she sat next to me and it made me so happy.

Modi:

No, because she saw your crazy post-it notes and I was thinking who the hell has post-it notes? Everybody takes notes on their thing.

Periel:

I have been dreaming about organizing that book into post-it notes for months.

Leo:

It took us going to the financial district and getting post-it notes for that to happen.

Periel:

It would, yeah, but she pulled the notes and put it into the computer and then Sarah the book agent goes.

Modi:

that's all I said. She went to Harvard, she went to Harvard and she. If I went to Harvard, it would be tattooed on my forehead 100% the first thing out of my mouth.

Leo:

They'd be like hi, Emily, I went to Harvard.

Modi:

Yeah, and she says. When everybody asks her, she says I went to a school in Boston.

Periel:

I also say that by the way.

Modi:

I also say I went to Boston, it's not a lie. What school? Boston University. But everybody thinks you already went to Harvard.

Periel:

No, but it's almost better to say where'd you go to school? And then you just say Boston.

Modi:

And then they're like, where, small liberal arts college? And then you're like, oh, harvard, yeah, turnpike Tech on the freeway 90. I went to state school.

Leo:

I can't oh.

Periel:

Where'd you go to school?

Leo:

The University of Georgia and Athens, Georgia, Athens.

Periel:

Georgia.

Modi:

Yeah, but that was a good school and you got there in a full scholarship.

Leo:

Yeah, it was free and a half two to a month.

Modi:

Good for you. Yeah, shkojech, shkojech. So that was that. I was in page six and it wasn't because I molested anybody. That's what I wanted to say.

Periel:

It was such a it's funny, because what I want to talk about the fact that you have glossed over and you didn't even mention the fact that you've sent hats, your merch, to 30 different countries.

Modi:

I think it's more if I'm being beyond 24.

Leo:

I honestly don't know where he got that information from. I keep trying.

Modi:

I have a little pad and every time we sell a hat, a more, a Meshir energy hat, we get. The best part about it is we get these texts from.

Leo:

Printful. It's an email that says hey, you just got an order, so you like to play up like you don't check your emails, but you're in there, I'm in there, you just leave them all on red.

Modi:

No, no, first of all I get the is where it says there's an email coming in, who it's from, and whatever. And then I see, and it gives you a little bit of the synapse, and but the Printful, the, the fulfillment, yeah the website we use for the hat. It gives you an email like first of all they charge me, then they charge them, and then it's like, oh thing goes back, but it shows you the address where it goes and when you see Sweden, stockholm, uruguay, we had Australia. There's so many of these hats in Australia.

Periel:

Okay, you know what's really crazy about that.

Modi:

Yeah.

Periel:

How much are the?

Leo:

hats no idea Like $36.

Periel:

Okay so I tried. There's this designer in Australia who I love and he made a hat and I tried to buy one. Do you know how much it costs to ship?

Leo:

Yeah, I don't know how much. You know how much people are paying.

Periel:

They're paying like as much as the hat for shipping.

Leo:

Well, probably more, probably more.

Modi:

Well, isn't it included in the Not from Australia, honey?

Periel:

No, okay, no. So that's how much people they go out of different fulfillment.

Leo:

Do you know who ordered a hat? Who? Beyonce?

Periel:

Beyonce.

Leo:

Beyonce Avivit, the woman from Venice. Oh, do you remember?

Periel:

the tour guide from.

Modi:

Venice who took care of?

Leo:

The Venice luxury tours. Yes, she ordered a hat to Venice, italy, and she wrote me an email saying she had like I get in Venice it's underwater, you have to be like very specific where this is going. So she had to add like an extra line of the address line. So she emailed me and I was like, oh, this is going to Venice.

Modi:

Venice.

Leo:

And it's going everywhere, it's going everywhere.

Modi:

Mashiach Energy is everywhere. You have to reveal it. That's what it is. You have to reveal Mashiach. Mashiach is here. Okay, mashiach is here. That's the title of this episode.

Periel:

Mashiach is here.

Modi:

That's the title of this episode Mashiach is here and I'm on page six, and here's Nuri, and here's Nuri Mashiach on page six. No, for real.

Periel:

Can I ask you a question? Yes, are there any? Do you have any hookups for like really cute restaurants in Israel that I need?

Modi:

to go to. We have, oh wow.

Periel:

I'm going yeah, yeah, we do.

Modi:

Tomorrow or whatever.

Leo:

I actually do have that list and what's funny is my friend Lucas, who's very chic and fun, got this list from his friend who's Israeli and like recently from Israel, now living in Brooklyn. So he had like very fresh insight until like what was hot and fun and then he put together this list that has been in a notes. You know the iPhone notes thing. This iPhone notes thing has been shared to so many people, yep. And it's been used so many times that you could probably charge to download it at this point. It's like a curated list of like amazing places you need to eat, and one of them is called Port Said. Oh, I've been there. Which is open. Which just opened in Hudson Yards as we should go to.

Periel:

Okay that. Yes, port Said is great. That's been there for a while, though For a minute, yeah.

Leo:

But it's a good landmark for people who are like going for the first time. Okay, but like there's other homes on the list, that's not the list.

Periel:

I'm in the market for what are you looking for? I'm in the market for, like your friends, with the chef and I don't have to wait to get a reservation.

Modi:

Oh, we are not friends with the chef. No, we went. Everywhere we went. We either had a reservation or we sat at the bar for an hour. Friends with the?

Leo:

chef. I texted Periel. We went to Zizi's. I went to Zizi's in Chelsea with my sisters.

Periel:

Yeah.

Leo:

And I know you have a connection with the people there, right? So I texted you. I was like I'm bringing my sisters to Zizi, and they very kindly covered the drinks and the dessert. Oh, that's cute.

Periel:

Yeah, that was actually. I was sitting next to Guy and I was like, oh, that's cute, leo's at Zizi and he went into like a frenzy starting texting the owner.

Modi:

I'm sure you're having those. Exactly what restaurants he wants to go to in Israel. Yeah, he does. He's such a foodie, he's such a foodie.

Periel:

So, that was Guy who, like, went into like a maniacal frenzy to send Leo dessert.

Leo:

That was very, very nice. I appreciate it.

Modi:

So they mentioned on page six that I oh my God. It's, they never get anything. I love her. Thank you, nikki, but she obviously the people just they write. He studied cantorial singing at yeah.

Leo:

Your backstory varies.

Modi:

It's not, and he grew up in a religious home.

Leo:

Oh, whatever she didn't write, that she did. That you grew up in a religious home, didn't she write that? I don't think that's written in the article.

Modi:

No, but bless her heart as long as she did talking something about me. But it made it sound like that's what I did, Like I took classes at your children, despite being religious as a teen. That's right, but I wasn't religious. I wasn't religious.

Leo:

All right, so don't believe everything you read in page six. That's the moral of the story, but believe that it was a good article.

Modi:

It was a very nice thing that she wrote and thank you very much.

Periel:

Wait, what did you just say, though? You just said something before that.

Modi:

The mashiach is here.

Periel:

No, no, about um.

Modi:

Oh studying. I thought you did study, I did, I studied there and I studied with different cantors, but she made it as though that was the thing I was. I did Like that was a, a hobby, a. A, but you are formally trained, yes, but that's not like the main thing, but she, whatever worked for her. I'm so happy for her and uh, and we love her and we're following her and we should get her on here. We should, we should bring her on the pocket.

Periel:

Okay.

Modi:

She's from page six, the story she has.

Periel:

Yeah, that's amazing. So she's a yeshiva girl who now writes for page six.

Modi:

That's cute and and hates the fact that sushi has dominated the kosher.

Periel:

Why does she hate that?

Modi:

Should I order sushi tonight? I, I, I, now, I want to, now, I want to Now kosher sushi no.

Leo:

So I have a place that I order from. We also go there sometimes, but uh, this place, shatt also shout out on the house a restaurant in the East village called Kodobuki.

Periel:

Okay.

Leo:

And they have on uh caviar or whatever the takeout app is.

Periel:

Oh, I thought they had. It's an app called caviar. Yeah, I'm familiar.

Leo:

And uh, you can order the sushi for two platter and I write in the notes section please kosher style, like no shellfish, no shrimp, no anything. And they do it. And then very nice, and it's and then they don't skimp on things. You know to do that, to make that accommodation.

Modi:

They give you, like give you these nice rolls and everything. It's really good. Wait, where are we? Page six so Nikki, who?

Periel:

caviar kosher.

Leo:

I think so. Fish eggs are kosher. I think it depends on the shrimp.

Periel:

Shrimp isn't kosher.

Leo:

I was surprised to learn that sword fish is not kosher.

Periel:

Yeah, is Mahi Mahi's kosher.

Modi:

I, I, yes, I think it is, I'm not sure.

Periel:

Shrimp is not a shrimp, that's obvious.

Modi:

I'm not a masjiguerh, so this is not a.

Leo:

But swordfish is like a light white flaky fish, but it has, like you would think. It's like it's because of the skin. You told me Exactly.

Periel:

I thought it was because of how they breathe.

Modi:

And it's a whole, it's a whole bunch of stuff. Okay, Can we not be the kosher corner? Can we not like people don't tune into this?

Periel:

All right, it's interesting for people who I mean some people don't know all of these different little rules.

Modi:

Luckily, everything's Googleable. Do you know what really blows me away? You don't really blow me away for a talk If we're in this little zone. Blessings on fruits and vegetables. Okay, this different when you're Boreh, priyadama brings the fruit of the earth. The earth and then Boreh Priyadama, another fruit of the tree, and so people you always see these mistakes that they make with avocados and bananas Okay, People say Boreh priah ets. Well, avocados are fruit, Avocados are fruit, so it's Boreh priah ets. So people and I was with people who were like if it has a seed, it's a fruit, but they they, they. Um right, I'm not going to mention Zayn, but he was a rabbi and he made the wrong brah, the wrong blessing. Scandals I was like wow. And then I'm like, I'm thinking I'm about to question him and he goes do you know that? That's not the prayer you make for that? And a banana, you think, is a fruit from a tree, but it's not. It's a plant. A banana tree is a plant, so it gets very, very difficult. Luckily, everything is Google-able. You can Google what blessing to make if you care, if it works for you and if it makes you a better person. Make the blessing on anything you eat. I do, because I thank God that this is happening, that I got a piece of food, water, especially. I every time I take a water from the sink and I drink Manhattan water out of the yeah, Moody's been drinking tap water.

Leo:

I drink tap water.

Modi:

I drink Manhattan tap water. It's delicious and the fact that you're in your home and you can just open the sink and water-. I do think about that sometimes I I'm so thankful.

Periel:

Yeah.

Modi:

And then when we went to Jerusalem and we went to the, the tours of the underground tunnels and they talk about how they made the tunnels just so you can get water to this area. And here we are, in Manhattan or wherever we are, just pick up the just a little lever and boom, you have water in your house. I have to make a blessing.

Periel:

No, that's, it's true. There are many places in the world that don't have water. What's the blessing on water?

Modi:

Shehakon In the Holy Spirit, shehakon, shehakon is in the water.

Leo:

People love it when you take a pause during the show to drink water and you throw that out. People love it. You throw out that little thing into the mic.

Periel:

Yes, it's cute, and you know. If you don't know, you can just apparently set the whole thing on fire and that'll also make me that works too.

Modi:

Oh my God, we are so exhausted.

Periel:

What are you guys doing for the rest of the summer? I'm not going to see you for a few weeks. I'm going to go through like.

Leo:

Send us a postcard from a parade. It's this little spicy parade happening over there.

Periel:

Oh, I will be hitting those streets.

Modi:

Are you really?

Periel:

Demonstrating.

Modi:

Fuck yeah, you're going to be on the demonstration.

Periel:

Demo-hasi.

Modi:

Is that what they're yelling?

Periel:

Yeah.

Modi:

I want to tell you.

Periel:

Bousha, bousha.

Modi:

I want to. I heard an amazing, amazing Dvar Torah from Rabbi Lau, who's the chief rabbi of the world. He really is, he's he was the chief rabbi he was the chief rabbi of Israel and now he's like, just like he's Rabbi Lau, he's, he speaks. It's amazing, it's the Holocaust of Israel.

Periel:

Where is he? We should get him on the show.

Modi:

He's not doing the show, but he's. Rabbi Lau said I don't know how I landed on this and, as I keep telling you, I keep watching the demonstrations in Israel and see how the demonstrators are have come together. The people who are not religious and people who are religious and just believe in a should be demoted have come together. And he had an amazing Dvar Torah. He said on Passover, when we read the daye nu, you know there's a he, he, he brought us to Har Sinai and didn't give us the Torah. Even that would have been enough. And why? Because he he brought us closer. There we were, at Mount Sinai. We're ready for. We're ready for, we're ready, we're together, we're bonded, we are bonded together. That itself is enough. The fact that the Israel, the Israelis, have bonded people from like the most. Anywhere. You're walking there and you see the guy that's your hairdresser and the guy that's your shoemaker. You're all together, singing the song, whatever, with a flag on your back. It's it united. There's some kind of Mashiach energy in that. I was an amazing Dvar Torah that I just like a quickie like on Instagram or something.

Leo:

And this week's kid is just sponsored by the Goldstein family.

Modi:

And the flower is by the Horowitz. He said at Mount.

Periel:

Sinai, and I thought you were talking about the hospital.

Modi:

I just no Mount Sinai. You think in the day they took my Mount Sinai hospital I had to tell you something. Your hair looks really good.

Leo:

My hair's given. Yeah, you got a haircut today. I got a haircut, yeah.

Modi:

My hair is do you guys go to the same place to get your hair?

Periel:

cut. We can't talk about it on air. It's actually a little bit.

Leo:

No, we, I, it's actually a little bit what.

Periel:

There's just like some Well.

Leo:

Leo got his hair dyed.

Modi:

Yeah, I go to a professional Right. I go to a professional too, but it's not like the. It's, it's. We go different places, but it's, it's. It all works out for ourselves.

Periel:

You had to go to a special place in Florida. I remember, oh my God, that was hysterical.

Modi:

I got a really bad haircut in Florida.

Leo:

Like to the point where I was like, oh, I don't see how it's possible. I was not possible. Look at my hair. How do you mess this up? I cannot tell you how.

Modi:

How do you mess this up? Were you with us.

Leo:

No, no, even Modi you saw I could tell when he was like finishing up. I was like, oh, you're done.

Modi:

We went to.

Leo:

We were in this a tragic barber shop, really it, really it looked clean and well and done and the barbers looked okay.

Modi:

The guy it literally looked like he put a bowl on Leo's head and just cut everything around. Leo asked for a fade Gay. Was it a?

Periel:

gay. Salon Gay is a goose. They were selling.

Modi:

They were selling underwear behind the but that we only saw in the video, but that we only saw after. But it looked like it was, it had it together and then the guy was just horrible. I walked down the street like and I said to Leo, okay, and this, and you couldn't say to the guy hey, I want it to fade, it would. The guy was so bad. Yeah. And I said to Leo, come with me. We went across the street to another hair place you thought I was gonna freak out. I was like I need to make sure Leo doesn't lose it and we walked across the street. The guy was there go hi, we just had a haircut across the street. This is really horrible. Is there any way you can fix it? And the guy goes yeah, sit down. And he made a fade and fixed whatever the guy did. I mean Leo was ready to go home and just shave all his hair. Yeah, I'm not emotionally attached to my hair.

Leo:

I am.

Modi:

I am very emotionally attached to my hair. I'm grateful for my hair. Be grateful.

Leo:

I'm not like grateful. Are you emotionally attached?

Modi:

I'm emotionally attached to my hair. I love my hair.

Periel:

I thought you meant to his hair? Are you emotionally attached to his hair?

Modi:

I like when it's long. I like when it's long Is this short or long.

Periel:

This is pretty short Dude.

Modi:

it's a look, it's fun, it's summer.

Leo:

I'm more excited for it to grow out, for when I get that trashy, long roots, dark roots look Like mine, yeah, like you, look trashy like me.

Modi:

Trashy roots. There's one if you watch Alan King, a comedian, and there's a clip that's called Survived by His Wife. He talks about all these obituaries like the guy, and he goes into the audience and makes people read these obituaries and he gets to one woman and he looks at him and goes those roots are in dead. He literally said it to her.

Leo:

Those roots aren't dead. The read the shade. The read the shade. It's so shady, oh my God.

Periel:

That is so funny. What did you say? If you're not grateful for your hair, are you gonna wind up in Turkey? In Turkey, getting them all reorganized Right that's where everybody goes to get their hair transplants.

Modi:

And they're doing a great job. I'm going to them.

Periel:

Yeah, I'm going to them. My cousin just did that. It looks great. He went to Turkey.

Leo:

Whatever floats your boat, you know what.

Periel:

It's kind of the only thing that happens to you guys.

Modi:

What is you lose your hair to guys yeah, there's women that lose their hair too.

Periel:

It's very very very.

Leo:

I will say you're right, in that men age a little bit more gracefully than what. Yeah that, oh gosh, I'm gonna pop Wow, it's just, I just don't lemon. Cancel me. Who cares? No, but what I'm saying is we don't have to go through menopause like that, but I would never say it hard. That they say it they get to live longer. It's fine we live longer.

Periel:

Nobody wants to fucking live longer, oh hard to be.

Leo:

So if she's laughing I feel a little bit.

Modi:

Men, when they get older and fatter, it comes like in one spot and they have a gut. And Women, it just comes all over the place sometimes no, here's the thing.

Leo:

Yeah, you what. What's the thing? No, nothing happens that sounded really Misogynist and I didn't mean for it to be that way.

Periel:

That's the culture we live in. It has nothing to do with you. Just saying it doesn't mean like you're acknowledging something.

Leo:

I'm more specifying menopause, like that's a fact that you, yeah, the experience that we don't, but also such a change in society, like it's considered, like older men are distinguished, like yeah, a guy with like salt and pepper Versus a woman is like, yeah, get your hair done right.

Periel:

It's like oh, men are allowed to get old, they're still considered sexy, and well, do you know?

Leo:

So you're here false out today on and just like that, starring just Sarah Jessica Parker, and they're talking about being deep into their 50s and living life and having fun. And how good is this?

Periel:

season and did you hear Sarah Jessica Parker which she said about like how much shit they got for having the audacity to make a show about women who are In there, like the new version yeah until like their late 50s, early 60s.

Leo:

Whatever it is I think it's giving me great. It's giving me hope a little bit, as someone who's in their 30s. I will tell you right now, I can keep having fun.

Modi:

You can have, I you've got again. Having fun at 45 is when I began that's when you met me. Yeah. I you, you can, you have to choose. Choose if. If you want to have fun.

Periel:

I can't wait to start having fun Just kidding, you're not having fun. No, I'm having fun, I was always having fun, though I was an animal when I was like it well, there's a difference between being like self-destructive and having fun.

Modi:

No, like, for example, we went to the Beyonce concert. We're done, we leave there. We get, the bus, brings us back to where we were in Soho, and then our friends all went out till 5 30 am.

Leo:

Right we went. We, by the way, could have done that, but you had to show the next day.

Modi:

I had to show the next day, but I was.

Leo:

I was a little bit tired.

Modi:

We will. I'm gonna be my bed soon. Take a nice shower. Yummy, yummy. You know that's also fun.

Leo:

That's I mean I had a moment of where I realized I Kind of like an oh, I'm getting old moment. But I kind of took it as like a growth slash where you feel you're getting old. I'm trying to finish the story, oh, go ahead. When we went on that boat party the 718 sessions party, yeah, and the we went on one of those boats that go around the city which normally sounds very cheesy and not our wheelhouse, but it was an amazing DJ and my friend says it's the best party in New York. They usually have it in the city at a venue. They just do this one time a year. They do it on a boat, and so we it left the dock at like eight o'clock. We got back to the dock at like 11, 30 or something like that and all our friends were like what are we doing next? What's next? What's that for this?

Modi:

and I was like that was so fun and nice that I just want to tie the night up in a Little ribbon now and go to bed and not let it unravel and just soak it in and I and all our friends that would call chase the Dragons tail, mm-hmm, all our friends that went out afterwards all said they had the worst time right, of course, listen, I'm doing I feel no one to.

Leo:

you have to know when to leave the party, yeah 100%, but I, jackie, said that I had 100%.

Periel:

I feel like I'm doing Exactly what I want to be doing.

Leo:

I feel so lucky that I get to do that in work and being an in a child rearing in a motion of your up, all of us and, yes, there's nothing else I would want to do.

Periel:

I partied so hard in my 20s and in my 30s and all I want to do now is comedy and radio and podcast and I, I don't know. I feel like.

Leo:

I think I did a good mix of partying and other things in my 20s. I'm done. I don't need to go out until four.

Periel:

But you did after what you wouldn't you know, let later on in life. Yeah, but in your 20s you're saying you 20s and 30s. No, I was doing right, you were doing comedy, I'm. I was partying then now.

Leo:

Yeah, but you're enjoying the fruits of that now I wouldn't you?

Modi:

yeah, I didn't. I was fine and a blessed and that's God protected me from like I told you. Know, I met up when we went to fire island and I met guys that I haven't seen in 20, 25 years. They're all in recovery, they're all, and I'm like I'm not because I didn't.

Leo:

You never took the first step to need a 12 step program.

Modi:

I never took. I'm too busy doing comedy.

Periel:

That's good. Did you come up with that just now?

Leo:

What was that? We never took the first step to get to. You didn't take the first step to need a 12 step program. That's right. You never went. You never developed the problem. That's right. You never were in those environments to potentially develop the problem.

Modi:

Yeah, I was too busy doing comedy and that was again the choice of not drinking, right, because when you're doing comedy you look, that's a choice, can I tell you something I had.

Leo:

I have cut back my drinking a lot. Last night I drank and I was functioning fully. If anything, I think it made me function a little bit better that was such an alcoholic thing to say. What no, you, sony Hall, I had. When did you drink? I had that wine that was in the green room, oh, wine.

Periel:

I was sipping on it.

Leo:

Oh, I was running around, I was going up and down those stairs so many times.

Periel:

You don't drink at all, right?

Modi:

No, I've seen him drink an entire bottle of whiskey and it didn't affect him a cup of that wine I've seen him drink like three Moscow mules and be trashed. When was that Trashed? Never. When did you see Never.

Leo:

Trashed In Florida.

Periel:

No, no, not in Florida, we were in Connecticut.

Leo:

That wasn't trashed that wasn't trashed.

Periel:

Okay, it was tipsy.

Leo:

That wasn't anything. That was me like laughing at us at the situation.

Modi:

We were in this casino. There wasn't even any alcohol in there.

Leo:

We were drinking off of drink tickets they were pouring us like.

Modi:

Awful.

Leo:

Yeah.

Modi:

Leo:

What was that? That brown, miserable brown Burban Burban. And he bought this thing. It was the dead of winter.

Leo:

It was freezing outside.

Modi:

It was four degrees outside. We were in there and he drank this thing and nothing hit him. Nothing hit him.

Leo:
