ADULT ISH IS A CULTURE, ADVICE AND STORYTELLING PODCAST PRODUCED ENTIRELY BY FOLKS WHO ARE ALMOST ADULTS.
What’s your biggest insecurity? For Nyge, it’s living with gynecomastia (aka man boobs). For Merk, it’s feeling too “Merky” for some people in her life. This “Insecure ISH” episode explores all that + brings on YR Media’s Noel Anaya to talk about getting access to his foster care files and confronting his painful past. Be sure to also check out Noel’s new short documentary
Adult ISH is produced by YR Media and brought to you by PRX’s Radiotopia.
