The other other host other host this week on Unorthodox. We bring you an episode. That's been in the works for a long long time and that I feel is actually going to really hit the sweet spot for. For a lot of people at a time when we're all sort of saying, what is our most authentic self? What is our relationship to the universe How do we really look inwards for who we want be and what our deepest values are, and the reality is that for some people not for all people, but for some people one avenue to that kind of introspection to that kind of spiritual engagement is psychedelic drugs. And we've been working for quite some time on a special. Look at Jews and Psychedelia, so here's where I should say that if you are worried about listening to a podcast that speaks of drugs, warmly and positively, or if your own recovery journey, maybe it would not be healthy for you to listen to such a podcast. You should skip this week's episode, but if you're intrigued to hear our take on how Jewishness might inform psychedelic use, or how psychedelic drugs in a Jewish context can help you grapple with spiritual and moral questions. Then I hope you'll stick with us because I think we have a pretty special episode for you. So here's what I'd like to I'd like to get the news of the juice. I I'd like to look outside of our basement studios and look at the world, and what's going on with Jews out there in the world, and then once we've covered that territory. I would like to look inwards and begin talking about Jews and PSYCHEDELIA. How does that work for You Stephanie? Only L., chill. Yes, once we've done talking about this. We'd like to put on a fish album. Stare at the wall. Get really groovy man like..

I actually ended up going down to Florida Florida as long as we pronounce it end up spending some time with my parents down in Florida after the sater's, it was really really fun. And I got to go to Miami to the Betsy hotel we were doing an event for the one hundred most Jewish foods book, and it was really really fun. And this woman came up to me, and she said I emailed you few years back. My mother was in the camps with your father's mother. And I remembered who she was and she didn't mean like camp. Ramon. The camps this woman. Diane Schiller, it came up to me, and she had we had corresponded a few years back, and I remember her and the craziest thing is that her husband is from Forest Hills. Where my father is from and grew up and her her future husband, basically shared a bar mitzvah with my uncle. So when her. The same dates. Did everything together when her parents met her future in-laws, they said, we know one person, you know, we only have one family from Forest Hills. And it's the button necks, and they were like, oh our son had his bar mitzvah with the older, son. So basically her parents have been at her husband's bar mitzvah, without realizing it that is and I said, you know, my dad's right over there, you go should talk. It was the craziest thing like a math. Bergen Belsen and then to forced hills to Miami Miami. And you talked about one hundred Jewish foods cooked one hundred Jewish foods doing the same thing that every every fifteen years this year, we will not host to sater's because it's crazy and citizen. And then it's like Marcia. Why are we doing this year's are we hosting? Yeah. We're hosting in two nights. Who was your champion guest to one the guest off of all of the guests? You had who was the best. You know, what the re the fact that? I can't say that. There was one person that stood out. It was like it was like a Jim Jarmusch movie was an samba cast that worked together seamless. There was coffee there were cigarettes. They were coffee cigarettes. You right curated the guest list? I worked hard on that seating to my Lord. So this is like a nuclear plant. We left with heating to Clara our eight year old who is the kids always make little place car. They draw illustrate the little that place cards, but is your we actually left. The seating arrangement to Clara. Who did a really really lovely job both nights. She did a really good job. And I actually I'm gonna I'm gonna name name champion guests. Oh, wow. I'm gonna this is no disrespect to the other guests. I think the champion guest was Arnold gorlic who has been on our show about his his father's appetizing store in Brooklyn. He was on. Her Father's Day episode. His movie theater, and he always brings Frizzell and Anna I five very very close and to Aniston next. Just hugged him the whole time and Arles like a sixty five year old like burly bearded. He's he you know, what you're gonna look like, you know, in in in shawnee years shell out Leah and Anna just sits next damages clings to him. And she likes it when he makes hot chocolate sometimes we stop by his house, and he makes Anna chocolate. So he brings his spread so machine to steam milk after the cedar for her so any brings his special cocoa powder. Artisanal cocoa. And so he comes with his hot chocolate. Sater's over and we're kind of done with the singing, and maybe we're waiting for Elijah. He makes hot chocolates for the table, but starts with an-any gives her whip cream, and every it's very it's a very sweet beautiful friendship. But we had a great time next year. I I have here to announce that I have accepted the invitation of camper in ohi-, California, which does a Passover family camp. I'm going to be a scholar in residence the whole mish. Book going to fly to over there. We're gonna pass on over the central flyover zone straight into the mountains outside of LA. And we're going to camp out there for I mean, they have bunks it's not actually camping out, but we're going to have the Remond ohi experience. And Rebecca, of course, is a remark a camper of New England's alumnus Dave obey dad. Can I can I do can I do remote? California's like you'll see how. Rolled. You'll see how they roll Kelly style. And of course, speaking of southern California when we're no high we will not be so far removed. Geographically, speaking from powei, California, which are news of the Jews. We note was the site of the shooting at the hobbit house there and murder of one of their congregants. You know, we were talking about this last night on our phone call guys, we're saying to talk about this do not talk about it. I mean, you know, in one sense to be perfectly Frank. It doesn't feel like it striking any of us the way Pittsburgh did. And is that because is one dead not eleven is it because we're a little in your to it. You know, we don't want to give the show over to knocking to give over to. We're gonna fund great Laffy show. But but what's to be said before we move onto to utter trivia?
