BONUS: This Better Not Awaken Anything In Me (with Catherynne Valente)


Welcome back to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! On this bonus episode Christian and Brett host the wonderful Catherynne Valente to discuss her recent essay, "This Better Not Awaken Anything In Me: How Ted Lasso Totally Did Awaken Lots of Things In Me Even Though Absolutely No One Asked It To Go So Hard."

Our conversation touches on Bob Fosse, Star Wars, Eurovision,  David Foster Wallace, Allen Iverson, and Kanye. We  also chat about how Ted Lasso exemplifies the highest ideals of Americanism, how he inspires us to become better versions of ourselves, and how we all just wish he was our dad.

Richmond Til We Die is a conversation about the Apple TV+ show Ted Lasso. A place where fans (and curious newcomers) come together to discuss the characters, their relationships to each other, and how they're able to make us laugh until we can hardly breathe one minute and then feel with the deepest parts of our hearts the next. When you're here, you're a Greyhound!
