Welcome back to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! In this episode Brett visits with Charlie Harding, host of Switched On Pop, as they discuss the incredible Ted Lasso Soundtrack.

Since Charlie has spent a lot of time thinking about pop music, we thought he’d be the perfect guest to help us figure out why the Ted Lasso soundtrack works with the on-screen action so darn well.

Charlie is a songwriter, music producer, author, music journalist, and the host of Switched On Pop. On their podcast Charlie and his co-host, musicologist Nate Sloan, explore the making and meaning of popular music.

In this episode, Brett and Charlie take some time to appreciate the incredible work done by the music supervision team in the series by examining several songs and their placement in the show.

Charlie also shares how he nearly (literally) bumped into Jason Sudeikis, pitches a song for next season's soundtrack, and speculates as to which American pop star could make a cameo in Ted Lasso's third season.

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!
