Episode 10: I Believe in Believe


Welcome back, Greyhounds! We're launching a Patreon! Check it out at patreon.com/tedlassopod.


We're on the Dogtrack this week to have a conversation about Season 1, Episode 10: The Hope That Kills You. On this episode Christian, Brett, and Marisa discuss the victoriously broken Roy Kent, Ted's emotional presence in the midst of adversity, and how we're feeling about the growth of some of our favorite characters at the end of season one.

We also talk a lot about the music in this episode: the effective use of "You'll Never Walk Alone", the surprise appearance of a Globetrotters anthem "Sweet Georgia Brown", and the melancholic ending of "Non je ne regrette rien" are all given their fair share of consideration. Have we mentioned how much we love the music team behind this show?

Welcome back, Greyhounds! We're on the Dogtrack this week to have a conversation about Season 1, Episode 9: All Apologies. On this episode Christian, Brett, and Marisa discuss Roy Kent's fear of irrelevance, Beard's uncanny ability to have hard conversations with his friends, and Rebecca's newfound freedom as she leans into grace after a heartbreaking attempt to shake the specter of her ex-husband Rupert.


We point out some of our favorite callback moments of the first season and join in Ted's love for Alfonso Ribeiro and marvel at the technical abilities required to pull off a convincing Carlton. Also, we talk about all those great 90s references and wonder if Ted lives his life in accordance with Buddhist thinking and principles.

BONUS: A Ted Lasso Barbecue Special (with Adrian Miller & Brendan Curran)


Welcome back to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! On this bonus episode, Christian and Brett have not one, but two conversations about one of Ted Lasso's favorite things in the whole wide world: BARBECUE!


Our first conversation is with Adrian Miller, aka the Soul Food Scholar. Adrian is an author and speaker who drops barbecue knowledge like hot biscuits. We spoke with Adrian about the cultural and historical origins of barbecue in America and discussed the barbecue scene's latest efforts to pay homage to its rich and diverse past.

Our second conversation is with Brendan Curran, the owner of the clothing company Three KC. He created the Joe Arthur Gates Stack t-shirt that Ted Lasso loves to wear when he gets all comfy in the evenings. We talked with Brendan about his company and what it's been like to see an uptick in business after his merch featured so prominently in the show, and after his products received glowing recommendations from famous Lasso superfans like Brené Brown and Jen Hatmaker. He and Christian also shared their favorite dishes at some of KC's most famous BBQ joints.

Episode 8: The EQ Warriors

Welcome back, Greyhounds! We're on the Dogtrack this week to have a conversation about Season 1, Episode 8: The Diamond Dogs. On this episode Christian, Brett, and Marisa discuss the insecurities of Keeley and Roy, the wisdom of the Diamond Dogs, the highs and lows of Rebecca, and the emancipation of Higgins.


We touch on just how vile and diabolical Rupert's actions are in this episode and fawn over Ted's victory and his monologue in the incredible "darts scene." Christian debunks a myth about barbecue sauce and Brett puts forth his theory about Jason Sudeikis and the "beat generation." Meanwhile, Marisa examines the fully-developed grunt language of Roy Kent.

BONUS: Jeremy Swift • Leslie Higgins on Ted Lasso


Surprise! We're in the Crown & Anchor once again! This is an extra special bonus episode because it marks our first ever interview with a cast member on the show, and we're so excited to share our conversation with Jeremy Swift with y'all!


Jeremy graciously took time out of his busy schedule to chat with us about his work on Ted Lasso and his appearances in huge hits like Downton Abbey and Mary Poppins Returns. We also touched on his bass-playing chops, his musical projects, and his working relationship with his real-life wife, Mary Roscoe (who plays Mrs. Higgins). Oh, and he shared a hilarious story from his early days as an actor in the theatre that you won't want to miss.

We want to give y'all a heads-up in advance that the audio quality in this episode is somewhat below our usual standards due to some technical issues that we experienced during our recording session. But we promise that the conversation is still heartfelt and hilarious, and we hope you enjoy it. Oh, and if you're wondering about our Episode 8 conversation - don't worry - it'll be in your feed real soon. ;)

Episode 7: Let It Go


Welcome back, Greyhounds! We're on the Dogtrack this week to have a conversation about Season 1, Episode 7: Make Rebecca Great Again. On this episode Christian, Brett, and Marisa discuss Nate's newfound comfortability with leadership, the appearance of Anxious Ted, and the beautiful way that friendships between women are represented in this episode.


We share some quotes from author Glennon Doyle, tease out some of the complementary themes of The Iron Giant, and share which songs from the Frozen catalog we would be most likely to sing at our own karaoke night. We also take a bit of time to appreciate Hannah Waddingham's immense musical theatre talent and share a story of how "Let It Go" almost didn't make it into this episode.

Welcome back to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! On this bonus episode Christian and Brett host the fantastic Dr. Mike Commito to discuss a presentation he recently gave to his colleagues at Cambrian College breaking down some of Ted Lasso's lessons on leadership.
