Actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani joins us to discuss his new film, “The Big Sick,” along with his wife, Emily V. Gordon, who co-wrote the film, based on their real-life courtship. It tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail, who connects with grad student Emily, played by Zoe Kazan, after one of his stand-up sets. When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, as well as his own.
