Kumail Nanjiani Launches a New Podcast That Will Break Down Every Episode of ‘The X-Files’


Comedian Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley, Portlandia) is hosting a new podcast called The X-Files Files, which will find Nanjiani and a guest breaking down a different episode of The X-Files every week until he’s done all the episodes.

The show is a part of podcast network Feral Audio, which also houses Dan Harmon’s Harmontown, Call Chelsea Peretti, and more. Film critic Devin Faraci is Nanjiani’s guest on The X-Files Files’ first episode, which tackles the first two episodes of The X-Files. This marks the second podcast Nanjiani hosts. The other is The Indoor Kids, a video game show on Nerdist that he co-hosts with his producing partner/wife Emily V. Gordon.
