Welcome back to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! In this episode Christian and Brett have a conversation with Ted Lasso's emmy-winning editor, AJ Catoline.

AJ and his counterpart Melissa McCoy are responsible for compiling the final edits of each Ted Lasso episode – AJ edits the even-numbered episodes while Melissa edits the odd-numbered ones. AJ's work on Season 1 Episode 10: The Hope That Kills You was recognized with an Emmy win in 2021 for Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series. And AJ has also worked on a lot of shows we personally enjoy, such as Brockmire, Black Jesus, Flavor of Love and The Standups.

In our conversation with AJ, he walks us through the editing process - also sometimes known as the "final re-write." We get into the editing choices for Ted's panic attack sequences, the jaw-dropping amount of visual effects that are seamlessly woven into the show, and ask AJ the most important question of all: When will we get a Ted Lasso blooper/outtakes reel?!

For those of you who aren’t through Season 2 yet - this is your official spoiler alert.

Discussed on this episode:

Richmond Til We Die is an episode-by-episode conversation about the Apple TV+ show Ted Lasso, where we explore the characters, their relationships to each other, and how they're able to make us laugh until we can hardly breathe one moment and then feel with the deepest parts of our hearts the next. When you're here, you're a greyhound!
