Adult ISH is a culture, advice and storytelling podcast produced entirely by folks who are almost adults.

In the Season 5 finale of Adult ISH, co-hosts Nyge Turner and Merk Nguyen get into office culture and workplace dos/don’ts. Why did Nyge get fired from his old job? Who better to ask than Dorian Taylor, his ex-boss who had to let him go?! Then the co-hosts get professional advice from YR Media CEO Kyra Kyles on questions like, “Should you really tell someone hiring you that your biggest weakness is working too hard?” Adult ISH (@yrAdultISH) is produced by YR Media and brought to you by PRX’s Radiotopia. It’s also the Radiotopia Spring Fundraiser — your support helps foster independent, artist-owned podcasts and award-winning stories like ours. Donate today at!
