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

In the latest episode of Adult ISH, co-hosts Dominique French and Nyge Turner continue their conversation with Leila Day and Hana Baba, hosts of “The Stoop” podcast that explores Blackness, race and identity in America. Together, they keep digging into the question: Does any Black person ever feel like they are “Black enough” at any point in time?

Adult ISH is produced by YR Media and brought to you by PRX’s Radiotopia.

Meet the Hosts

Nygel Turner, (he/him) is an Oakland, California-based creator of “Not Your Father’s Podcast” and YouTube series “Not Your Mama’s Kitchen.” His audio and written work has also appeared in The Guardian, Snap Judgment and the CBC. 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. When she is not producing and developing podcasts that explore race, gender and culture, you can find her napping through a scary movie. But shhh! She’s sleeping!
