Admit it. You still hide things for no good reason, harbour shame because mom and dad told you to, or make subconscious decisions about your identity because the zeitgeist has a stronghold on your opinions. In The NEST, host Missy Modell attempts to level with her guests on some of these long-held beliefs that — given this moment in history — we all feel a little bit ridiculous holding onto.
Like, why do we still hide tampons when we go to the restroom? Or maintain an expensive and time-consuming depilation regimen out of shame, when we know that everybody has body hair? Why do we stay up way past our bedtimes (most nights!) trolling Instagram and comparing our bodies to people we’ve never even met. (It’s all about the angles!) Why is fear around money one of the most isolating experiences for an adult? And why does mentioning an abortion or a miscarriage make people squirm?
Missy Modell’s career spans music, comedy, and acting, but she has always dreamed of a talkshow. The NEST is the ultimate manifestation of that — an opportunity to call on women, and a few men, to think a little differently.
The NEST is a co-production of Miss Grass and PRØHBTD Media. Episode oo2 airs October 9. Stay tuned!
