Adult ISH is a production of YR Media and is distributed by Radiotopia from PRX.
Staying on theme with Mental Health Awareness Month, the Adult ISH team opens up about their journeys with medication. Producer Georgia Wright and co-host Nyge Turner share their expectations versus realities of taking meds. Merk Nguyen shares a poetic story on her recent experiences navigating through her anxiety and depression. Writer and actress Mara Wilson (yes, from “Matilda” and “Mrs. Doubtfire”!) joins to challenge misconceptions about medication, life in the public eye and her mental health.
