Folks, this is one of the most amazing things that’s ever happened to me. The Oscar-nominated duo behind last year’s film The Big Sick, Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, teamed up to perform my New York Times Modern Love essay. It’s this week’s episode, which is doubly special because it’s Valentine’s Day!
Much thanks to the great people at WBUR (where Modern Love the Podcast is made), especially Caitlin O’Keefe who was gracious and patient as I prattled on during our interview. Also thanks to WBGO for hosting me and providing crystal-clear communication between Newark and Boston. Huge thanks to Dan Jones and The New York Times for publishing my essay in the first place.
Lastly, thank you to my wife Dawn and my mother, who provided the fodder for my essay. 🙂
