"Inverting the Pyramid of Success" (S2E12)
It’s the big finale of season two. On the field, Richmond tries to return to the Premier League. Off the field, things are falling apart. Sam, Keeley, Nate, and Trent Crimm make big moves. Higgins plays with puppies. Roy visits the Diamond Dogs. Jamie shows growth. Dani seeks redemption. Jan Maas speaks the truth. And Ted cites the work of a triple wizard. Onward to season three—after we spend the length of a football match breaking this one down. (Thanks for being with us the last 22 weeks.

"Man City" (S2E8)
The FA cup semifinal. A bike accident. Dating apps. Fathers and children. It all comes to a head in this episode of “Ted Lasso.”...
Good show overall
I think it’d be better if they did a brief recap of the episode in the beginning of the show.
There are some audio issues I’ve noticed (differing volumes, voices drop off (or very low volume) at end of sentences, dogs).
Seems like it’s different people hosting each time. This doesn’t mean that they’re bad, just that it feels a bit disjointed.
Of all the Ted Lasso podcasts I’ve tried this seemed the most listenable.
Sports is Political
I fell in love, even more, with Ted Lasso when Sam stood up for his beliefs. I wish more people would stand against the wrongs in the world. The commentator who said he didn’t appreciate the politics was showing his privilege and he was only one ‘beat’ away from essentially saying “shut up and dribble”. I’m not entirely certain which panelist made the comment so which ever it was, have several seats and keep your privilege to yourself.
Decent but some need things to be spoonfed to them
When a commentator needs a show to be tidy and explore everything, it’s time to hang up your boots. Think about the gray rather than black and white, this will improve your content and show your maturity. Is this the result of an education where everything is hand fed to the student? Updated: who is the guy who keeps talking over the others? He needs to stop. It has led to me changing my star rating and ceasing to follow the show. It’s just bad and immature.
That being said, I do appreciate that they keep politics out of their commentary. Politics and those obsessed with it are exhausting. Hateful, spiteful bunch that should not be catered to anymore.
