Adult ISH

Adult ISH from YR Media and Radiotopia is a culture and advice podcast produced entirely by folks who are almost adults. Each episode, #adulting “experts” Nyge Turner, 23, and Merk Nguyen, 23, talk with your fave influencers and dive deep into topics ranging from pot to hip-hop to politics and everything in between. Also, hear cautionary tales from OG adults who’ve more or less figured out their adult S**T.



Where to start

Meet the Hosts

Angela "Merk" Nguyen and Nyge Turner


Angela "Merk" Nguyen, 23, is a Seattle-based podcast producer who is a self-described "cisgendered sis with a knack for puns and alliterations." She got her start in audio through KUOW's RadioActive Youth Media and can #humblebrag about being on NPR airwaves as a teen. She can hold a conversation in Vietnamese for 7 minutes (max) and aspires to be the next SpongeBob (no really, ask about her voice acting dreams).

Nygel Turner, 23, is an Oakland, California-based creator of Not Your Father’s Podcast and YouTube series Not Your Mama’s Kitchen. Nyge is the only person in Oakland who has never lost an argument. He will never own the red Jeep of his fantasies. In his free time (haha), he studies psychology and plans to graduate later this year.
