In Adulting, a new podcast from WNYC Studios, hosts Michelle Buteau and Jordan Carlos navigate the rough waters of adulthood with the help of hilarious special guests like Phoebe Robinson, Wyatt Cenac, Jim Gaffigan, and Danielle Brooks.
“This show is group therapy on Groupon,” said Carlos, who recently wrapped as a story editor on Season 2 of HBO’s Divorce. “When we get rolling and sharing the ups and downs of adult life and how we are all muddling through, I don’t feel alone. I feel connected to everyone in the room. But that could also be the Bloody Marys talking.”
“I simply cannot wait for this s*** to drop!” said actress/comedian Buteau, who previously hosted WNYC Studios’ Late Night Whenever.
“It’s been a thrill to work with Michelle Buteau again, who is such a force, and to get to know the incredibly talented Jordan Carlos,” said Paula Szuchman, VP of On-Demand Content, WNYC Studios. “Listening to them together makes me forget all my troubles, and realize I’m not the only one struggling with grown-up things like keeping plants alive.”
