Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) with Zoe Lister-Jones (Band Aid)

On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, Kumail Nanjiani, the writer-star of the forthcoming The Big Sick, talks with Zoe Lister-Jones, whose Band Aid – which she wrote, produced, directed, stars in and wrote the songs for – is in now in theaters on VOD. In a conversation interrupted both by gardeners and Zoe's Band Aid co-star Adam Pally, the two multihyphenates chat about putting their real lives in their movies, working with their partners, getting in touch with their emotions, why comedies have terrible third acts, why Boardwalk Empire made enemies in New York, and what it's like to make a movie with an all-female crew.
