    BONUS: I Believe in Rom-Communism (with Gwenda Bond)

    Welcome back to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! On this bonus episode we host New York Times best-selling author Gwenda Bond to discuss the theme of "rom-communism"  that has been so pervasive in the second season of Ted Lasso.

    Luckily, Gwenda is an accomplished writer who has spent a good deal of time writing stories that fit within the rom-com genre - including her new book that is out this week, titled Not Your Average Hot Guy.

    In our conversation with Gwenda,  we discuss the hallmarks of the rom-com genre, the ways in which the show adheres to and subverts rom-com conventions, and point out our favorite references in the "Rainbow" episode of Ted Lasso season 2.

    We also take some time to talk about Gwenda's work on a Young Adult fiction series which features a young Lois Lane (of the Superman comics) as the protagonist and ask her how she came to love the genre so deeply.

    BONUS: Annette Badland • Mae on Ted Lasso

    Y'all! We have been invited into the Crown & Anchor by the pub owner herself! This bonus episode is a conversation with cast member Annette Badland, who portrays Mae on Ted Lasso.

    We had the opportunity to chat with Annette back in late August, after we connected with her on Twitter and our schedules finally lined up! We chatted about her involvement with Ted Lasso, her stint on Doctor Who, and her extensive work on stage and radio drama. We also discussed poetry, risky charity stunts, and what it means to find truth in a character when telling their story.

    Be sure to stick around until the very end of this episode for a special surprise from Annette!

    BONUS: The Real-Life Ted Lasso (with Coach Donnie Campbell)

    BONUS: The Real-Life Ted Lasso (with Coach Donnie Campbell)

    Welcome back to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! On this bonus episode, Christian and Brett  have a quick but insightful discussion with Jason Sudeikis' high school basketball coach - Donnie Campbell!

    Sudeikis has shared that the character of Ted Lasso is partially based on his former coach, and we had a ton of fun talking with Coach Donnie about his upbringing in Lyons, Kansas (it's the next town over from us, y'all!), his time playing basketball and football at K-State, and those mentors who have influenced his coaching style and philosophy over the years.

    If you're a Ted Lasso fan who's also had a great coach at any level, we think you'll really enjoy this episode. Plus, you may be surprised to find that Ted Lasso's accent sure sounds a whole lot like this rural Kansas boy's endearing drawl.

    And Coach still lives near KC, so of course we asked him about barbecue. So maybe don't listen to this episode too close to lunch time. You've been warned.

    Pull up a stool, Greyhounds - we're back in the Crown & Anchor! This bonus episode is an interview with Ted Lasso cast member Tom Hendryk, who portrays AFC Richmond goalkeeper Tom O'Brien on the show.

    We had the opportunity to chat with Tom back in late June, after we connected with him on Twitter shortly after his engagement to his fiancée! While we visited, he shared with us all about his work on Ted Lasso, his deep love for the Eurovision competition, and what a wild ride it has been to be a Leicester City supporter – particularly over the last decade.

    We also touched on his experience as a member of a Polish dance troupe, his tenure in a production of an immersive stage version of The Polar Express, and his Covid-19 lockdown creation - a mini webseries titled The Industry.

    Hello Greyhounds! Welcome to our Season 1 Wrap-Up Episode - coming to you live from our separate vacation spots! On this episode Christian, Brett, and Marisa discuss some of their thoughts heading into the season two premiere of Ted Lasso.

    We share something cool or interesting we learned after recording our conversations, chat just a bit about that second teaser trailer, offer some (silly) predictions for season two, acknowledge the obscene amount of Emmy nominations the show received, and provide some detailed information regarding our publication schedule as season two airs.

    And we just know that you need another newsletter in your life (you actually probably most certainly don't), so please consider subscribing to Biscuits & Brisket: A Ted Lasso Newsletter to keep your inbox full of feel-good content that is Ted Lasso-approved.

    I Believe in Believe (Ted Lasso S1E10)

    Welcome back, Greyhounds! We're launching a Patreon! Check it out at patreon.com/tedlassopod.

    We're on the Dogtrack this week to have a conversation about Season 1, Episode 10: The Hope That Kills You. On this episode Christian, Brett, and Marisa discuss the victoriously broken Roy Kent, Ted's emotional presence in the midst of adversity, and how we're feeling about the growth of some of our favorite characters at the end of season one.

    We also talk a lot about the music in this episode: the effective use of "You'll Never Walk Alone", the surprise appearance of a Globetrotters anthem "Sweet Georgia Brown", and the melancholic ending of "Non je ne regrette rien" are all given their fair share of consideration. Have we mentioned how much we love the music team behind this show?

My favourite podcast!

A goldmine for Ted Lasso fans! Christian, Marissa and Brett are so warm, funny and knowledgeable about all sorts of Ted Lasso-related cultural and relational insights that make watching the show so much better. I’m always impressed by their conversations and it’s great to listen to interesting folks who love Ted Lasso as much as me. This podcast truly got me through some bleak lockdown times! Highly recommended.

Love this podcast!

So glad to find this. Warm and positive, it has the same vibe as Ted Lasso and has taught me loads about the show. Thanks for making these episodes, any chance you can make more to keep us going until season 2?!

Perfect for Lasso fans!

If you’re a fan of the series, you need to check out this podcast! Not only are you in for an amazing time, but it will help tide you over until Season 2 arrives. Even if you aren’t traditionally one for podcasts, give this one a try, I promise you it’ll be worth it.
