The Big Sick and Choosing a Mate
Stacy and Nicole discuss The Big Sick, the death (and possible resurgence?) of romantic comedies, how we pick our mates, and immigrant assimilation.
Check out The Atlantic article on why romantic comedies can't keep people apart, some thoughtful criticism of the movie on Represent, and the Slate article on Master of None's Religion episode. Also watch the 9/11 joke for yourself.
