Episode 69: Ted Lasso

In this episode of Welcome To The Party Pal, host Michael Shields, with the help of film/television enthusiast and podcaster Jonathan Hart, celebrates Ted Lasso, the comedy series developed by Bill Lawrence, Jason Sudeikis, Joe Kelly and Brendan Hunt, based on a character of the same name that Sudeikis first portrayed in a series of promos for NBC Sports' coverage of the Premier League. The Apple TV breakout hit finds American college football coach Ted Lasso recruited to coach an English Premier League team, AFC Richmond, despite having no experience in association football. In this episode Michael and Jonathan explore just what is so special about this unassuming sports comedy while hailing its eclectic cast, musing on Lasso's knack for locker room speeches, and marveling about the bounty of "Lasso-isms" found within one of the most heartwarming shows on television.
