Welcome back to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! In this episode Christian and Brett have a conversation with legendary sports broadcaster and Men in Blazers co-host Roger Bennett!

In June 2021, Bennett released a memoir entitled (Re)Born in the USA: An Englishman's Love Letter to his Chosen Home, which debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best Seller List. In the book, Bennett traces the origins of his love affair with America, and how he went from a depraved, pimply faced Jewish boy in 1980’s Liverpool to become the quintessential Englishman in New York.

We chatted with Bennett about his book, his broadcast experience, the emotional intensity of soccer support, his love for the NFL, and his reflections on Ted Lasso.

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!
