Ted Lasso Meets the Mighty Ducks (with John U. Bacon)

Welcome back to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! In this episode Christian and Brett have a conversation with John U. Bacon, author of the book "Let Them Lead: Unexpected Lessons in Leadership from America's Worst High School Hockey Team"


Welcome back to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! In this episode Christian and Brett have a conversation with John U. Bacon, who is a journalist and author of books on sports and business as well as a sports commentator on TV and radio.

We chatted with John about his book "Let Them Lead: Unexpected Lessons in Leadership from America's Worst High School Hockey Team" and really got into the Ted Lasso of it all. John's story about turning around his alma mater's flailing high school hockey team is a tale fit for anyone who is a fan of the show TED LASSO.

John's a fan of TED LASSO, too, and so we of course chatted about Ted's leadership philosophy and asked John a few questions pertaining to the show (including whether he thought Ted Lasso or Jim Harbaugh looked better in khakis).

Discussed in 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.
