Welcome back to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! In this episode Marisa, Christian, and Brett preview the rapidly-approaching FIFA Men's World Cup!

We offer a brief explainer on the tournament - how it works and how nations qualify - before chatting a bit about the human rights disaster that this competition is already shaping up to be for host country Qatar, mostly due to gross corruption within organizing body FIFA.

But it's not all doom and gloom! We also take a quick look at all the squads that have connections to Ted Lasso, rate our favorite kits and jersey designs, and discuss the impact that music continues to have upon this fabled competition.

There should be a little something for every Ted Lasso fan in this lighthearted World Cup guide. We hope you have as much fun listening to this episode as we had recording it!

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.
