Adult ISH is a culture, advice and storytelling podcast produced entirely by folks who are almost adults.
In our season finale, Nyge and Dom talk to the season’s on-call therapist Keanu M. Jackson about whether or if not grudges serve us. Then, they sit down with Natalie and Kaitlin Prest from “Sisters,” a celebrated series by The Heart podcast, to discuss sibling rivalries, family beef, and how their relationship has evolved over the years.
Season 9 episodes drop Thursdays through June 15. Co-hosts Nyge Turner and Dominique “Dom” French explore taboo subjects in an effort to lift stigmas and process the hard stuff together. As BIPOC creators in their 20s, Turner and French aim to create space to be curious in a world where we’re supposed to have everything figured out.
Adult ISH is produced by YR Media and brought to you by PRX’s Radiotopia. Be sure to follow all our socials @yrAdultISH!
Meet the Hosts

Nyge is the only person in Oakland who has never lost an argument. And he’s proud of a recent adulting milestone: upgrading to his first brand new car — the jeep he’s always wanted. Listen to previous seasons with his former and still beloved co-host Merk Nguyen in our archives.
Dominique “Dom” French (she/they) is a Black/ femme/ disabled Northwestern University graduate with a dual degree in theatre and anthropology. Dominique has collaborated with the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and contributed to the Smithsonian Anthology of Hip-Hop and Rap.
