WNYC Studios Launches New Comedy Podcast Adulting with Michelle Buteau and Jordan Carlos

From WNYC Studios comes the new podcast Adulting, where hosts Michelle Buteau andJordan Carlos navigate the rough waters of adulthood with the help of hilarious special guests like Phoebe Robinson, Wyatt Cenac, Jim Gaffigan and Danielle Brooks. They ask and answer the big questions: What is the amount where a Venmo request becomes petty? Is it okay that I eat cereal three times a day? How much is too much to spend on a pillow? Adulting launches on Tuesday, May 21st and will be available on wnyc.org, iTunes, and all other places where podcasts may be downloaded.

Listen to the trailer HERE.

Taped in front of a live audience, Adulting features Buteau — who previously hosted WNYC Studios’ Late Night Whenever — Carlos, and guests addressing everything from raising kids, splitting the check at dinner, doing taxes, asking for a promotion, breaking up with a friend, navigating relationships, paying the mortgage, and much more.

“This show is group therapy on Groupon,” says Carlos. “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 shit to drop!” says Buteau.

“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, Vice President 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.”
