You can thank you not. Hey guys. I'm sure you saw this while. Messy is trending right now and it's not for a good reasons. He was supposed to sign his extension with barcelona this morning. Apparently snags are hit. Messy will not continue to be playing with f c barcelona. This is insane. We're losing our minds over rodney hood signing with the milwaukee bucks. He's talking about retirement. This is actually the biggest story in the world. This is how world economy shift right. If he decides to leave barcelona and go play for paris st germain and team up with neymar he goes to the mls and chooses to legitimize that league on a global stage or what are the is the economics of the city. The country the sport massive frank sola covers the nba just tweeted out messy. Considering both the brooklyn nets end lakers not sure how that would shift the balance of power but seriously what if he goes at the premier league in like him and harry kane demand city like what are we talking about. What an incredible opportunity to grow the game of soccer to to create global excitement an interest. Does he ever responsibilities accomplished everything you could possibly accomplish on. The highest stage of the game is his responsibility now to grow the game. Should he take that leap and come to the during the prime of his career to bring that sport to new heights in america. Is that something that he's even interested. Should he be interested. That'd be incredible if this dude started playing for the l. Afc big star in america. Oh my god you would have to. They just built a brand new stadium down. You would have to literally play those games at s-o-f-i because you could still be people standing-room-only oh it was a big deal. When beckham came but that was toward the end of his career. He's kind of shell of himself as a player messy still one of the best players in the world. Got something in tank comes to the. Mls a changes soccer in america forever. The rumors already about where he might sign or what happened. I haven't seen any rumors be just nine hours ago. Soccer took twitter was talking about how extension was expected a five year agreement and now in the last twenty thirty minutes talks broke down could not come to agreement. And he's not returning insane. You think he went inside. I'd like nine hundred million euros. They said we'll give you eight hundred million euros and you can own half of the country and he was like He said i think he. He saw the trey. Parker masto witherspoon production company saw with the knicks. Julius randle on was like okay. I'm wine messy. He's always randall. I know he made an all star team and should have been first team except they gave us a quiet for no reason. But i'm lionel messi. I should make a little bit more than you will. Get the steph curry contract. You talk about michael jordan lebron james. Whatever you're actually paying them. They're underpaid so i think messi whatever he was going to be getting from barcelona probably was at a discount. If you're an mls would you pay messy a billion dollars to play for your team. A one hundred percent. I'd make him the full owner. He i mean that's pro. You're gonna make layer owner like the amount of merchandise and bobbleheads and a foam fingers layer owner and a seat on city council will also let you become ingratiated in the community can be the may be the mayor.

And we're going to get to all the ted lasse. Oh goodness but i wanna go way back to you growing up in the chicago area Going to school downstate in the prairie land parts of illinois. That i've had people in california asked me how far away chicago is from illinois so i guess that tells you. The people aren't really Very well versed in the other parts of the state. Let's start with where you grew up. And what kind of kid were you Yes i sort of grew up all over the more side Near my parents divorced. When i was like to know my mom tried to take care of me. Misses by herself Would you know. I hear that other other psalms about home single mom is hard But this was before even though songs didn't have the cash That it enjoys today though. Yeah kind of all of the north side and So i was a kind of a hyperactive kid. If not clinically. At least you know spiritually In kind already. Angry young age. Like i remember. I remember a a report card from either first or third grade. The reason why. I don't know it's a school that. I know that i went to two times always gets. There was a member of postcard report card that said thirty seven and a half absences in like a quarter or semester. Like it was something insane i was. My mom didn't know she was going to work.

"That's what she said was sarahspain a podcast about well. Whatever the hell i want. Actors musicians athletes comedians. Neuroscientist wine experts. If i find somebody interesting. I'm bringing them to you. We'll talk about how they became who they are how they found success battled failures and how they ended up here talking to me than hunt and my dilemma is. I'm a bears fan. Lula shares a child with a vikings fan. No child being raised in los angeles. Okay so i know this one well. My niece and nephew are a constant battleground for sports loyalties in the family. I've thankfully got them both locked in on the red stars proudly rock in their gear. Sports day at school. But my sister. And i are battling their dad on the mlb front. We are offering up lots of cubs gear. And we're trying to counteract his red sox fandom and. I think it's going to help us that they live in chicago. Land we can actually take him to cubs games. Plus obviously the ubiquitous -ness of north side gear around these parts helps So it's going to be tough for you. You have to navigate parents of different loyalties and living in enemy territory for for third team But what. I will tell you this from having lived in. La outside of s-o-f-i stadium if you look at the rest of la and its surrounding areas. They're probably more fans wearing bears. Gear than rams because we travel and all the chicago folks who live there proudly rockin the gear all the time. I mean i think we all know. La fans don't really show up till the postseason out there they've got know movie and beaches and you know attractive people meetings to attend. I presume because. I remember when i lived there and those lakers car flags were popping up in the spring as if the season had already been going on for months. So stand strong. I believe that the pool of the bears and they're rabid fan base is powerful enough to take out the rams and the vikings but do not let the kids get their hands on one of those vikings yeller horns because if you put that was one of those helmets with the horns. I don't know man that could really capture their attention and their imaginations and that could lead them to a very sad very dark very purple place. That's what she said. It's rare to meet someone who doesn't like the show ted lasso if you if you don't know about it jason. Today is an american. Football coach. Hired to coach a british football team. And it gives you some of the regular fish out of water. Hijinks that you'd expect but so much more heart and humor and a real version of the sitcom tropes that feels progressive and thoughtful witty and warm. You could find people who haven't seen the show yet absolutely but someone who has watched head lasso and didn't suddenly feel like their body was made up of sunshine and rainbows haven't seen it haven't met a one so i was actually surprised when i read critique of the show in the washington post by columnist in google king. She said plenty of nice things but she also wrote in part quote. Ted lasso is a fantasy of decency of nontoxic masculinity of leadership through emotional intelligence. It's kindness porn allah shits creek brooklyn nine nine and parks and recreation shows with fervid fan bases that cherish rather than question. Those series credulity straining tolerant settings and she later writes quote. It is of course totally fine. That ted lasso was a fantasy most fictional series and many nonfiction works for that matter. The shoe ver- similitude or complicating realities. But it's also holy fair to not want what ted lhasa is selling. Which is where. I often find myself now. She's of course allowed to her opinion and not. Everyone wants decency in their entertainment. A lot of people prefer their escape to come with violence or druglords. You know the dark underbelly of society but the part that got me was calling it quote a fantasy of decency nontoxic masculinity and leadership through emotional intelligence. That's not a fantasy to me. You know that can be a reality if we want it to be at the very least. It can be a goal instead of an annoyance and in my years covering sports. I've found it shocking. How many people just can't seem to wrap their heads around the idea of through life without se committing domestic violence or getting an a terrible bar fight or sexually assaulting someone. I know that sounds ridiculous but come my mentions and see how often it's like. You haven't made a mistake or bet. You wouldn't like someone digging into your past. You can call me pollyannaish. I've heard it before you could tell me. I live in ivory tower. Wouldn't be the first time. But i'm kind of done apologizing for having higher expectations for humanity for myself and others absolutely second chances are important absolutely the traumas and challenges. That people grow up with can result in behaviors. That later caused shame. Absolutely i have been incredibly lucky to live where i've lived to be raised by the people i have to have had the opportunities i have but i also make choices over and over again in pursuit of decency and in the moment as we live our every day and we make choices about ourselves and others and how we want to affect the world. Can we at least try to refuse accepting. The decency has to be a fantasy. Because i'm not perfect. But i'm sure it's trying to get as close as i can to be a person that i could be proud of that. Other people can look up to that makes other people's lives better fairer and more joyful and if we just let cynics convince us that cruelty selfishness toxic masculinity women be kept fighting. And just general. Shadiness are an inescapable reality. I don't want to live in that world. So if ted lonzo gets a few more people to react with emotional intelligence and talk things through instead of coming to blows and consider the feelings of others and engage in ways that feel decent and mature and emotionally intelligent than i'm buying what it selling every twice on sunday and i'm guessing that my guest this week agrees.

"Like basically a hundred percent of our jokes will not be one hundred percent of the people and so we don't mind if you know. Ten percent of the jobs are only gotten by two percent of the people as long as the different two percent. every time So that's why you get your cable. References your occasional iverson rant In a few soccer easter eggs that people might not get but we don't linger on them long enough that it does any damage so much. You know it's it's it's fun. Have one of those when you're gonna live theater You like during a player or something. Where like five hundred people say and like you say joke that you know is funny but you know that only three people are gonna laugh then they do and it makes everyone else go okay. I didn't get that but the show is still good. Apparently the current. They're still doing funny things. So i continue to listen. I didn't even notice it. And i was delighted today when i did notice it and there are a lot of jokes like that in the shows. You as you said. This may be a dumb question but ted last always have the same voice jason. Just dale it on the first time or have there been other ted lasso accents that were workshop at some point because the voices it's perfect i love i love it. I think that is a voice that is in his. You know his infinite jukebox lazy susan. Or whatever you know a variegated Messenger system you wanna you know analogize He had done anisinov timer to And but like not. It was never like a signature thing. You know like a signature character per se But so that has always been the voice from the moment you know. We first met at his at his house in the hills to get the house hills at the time To just you know vomit notes and bits out onto a few legal pads That was always tense voice and And yet there's never been much wearing trump. We're going one episode at a time right or did they were not. You're not that's how you're releasing wanted at one a week or what what is it. Yeah one week. This time i season was Three at once and then one more after a week. And then i mean we kind of wrote the first part of the season thinking that the first three episodes would come out at once. Then they're like no no what a week and they. Oh look. I know it's fine. It's fine but yet the trade off is this time there's two more episodes so look a little bit as someone who is both patient but also knows that i would watch the whole show and tonight's thank you. I like this way better. It's going to give me something to look forward to every week or whenever it comes out. t- english t keep hammering it. I hate team. I don't i. Don't get t it's an endless source of delight for me. That ted lascaux hates tea. Is that gonna without spoiling anything. Are we going to get a recurrence of that joke at all in season two. Yes you will. Yeah i. I'd never got it with t- either and i'm such a in european. Wanna be you'd think out of adopted by now and every couple of years. I'll have a cup of tea like just like you know to to check in. But yeah i it's never it's never grabbed me and i'm a huge causey guy now and i not is better for you than coffee in pretty much every way possible. I don't care. I don't care about the health care about the health information. I don't care i don't care about. Today's interview has been fueled by gatorade. Whatever path you take the greatness. Gatorade is there to feel it. Greatness starts with g all right. you're very busy. You're promoting the show all over the place. It doesn't even need promotion anymore. That's that's the cool thing about it but was there any. Is there anything we didn't hit that you wanna hit. Is there any part of the shows journey. We didn't hit the. You wanna talk about or anything you want to say about season two or anything like that. The floor is yours This is my third interview the day some little brain friday. Hit the sound of my own voice but you had mentioned something about one in greece notes. Yes i yes. There was an interview. That i either jason gave. I can't remember talking about how because episodes can be longer than like an eighteen minute televised sitcom or twenty two minutes. Or whatever the sitcom like with commercials you guys can let scenes linger and i think it was jason and said we can have these grace notes and i and the interview kind of left it there and it made me think like what are they actually talking about. So what does that mean. What is it. What is grace note in the ted. Lasso universe yeah. So it's a very specific musical term. That i will not attempt to define because i will. I will do it slightly wrong. But the examples of it in the show. 'cause 'cause you've you basically described it right there. Is we moments where we have the opportunity. Take a little time so we do but one islam. Yeah getting back toward the episode toward the end of episode seven the liverpool episode you after the The events of the karaoke We see ted in his hotel room signing the divorce papers and that easily could have been you know. Just gimme signs. Madonna or just cut to head. Sign the papers or whatever but you know there's another phrase a called Don't your steps which is a. I believe as buster keaton and charlie chaplin and don't burn steps means like if buster keaton had et cetera. script buster goes to the cabinet and takes a teacup out and pour themselves and t- He wouldn't just you know. Did the t he would go. Go the door touch the doors of the okay right even open the door and then you look for the teacup and like as a district like you know. Really do every single thing they're supposed to do. Don't don't don't skip anything so in that moment..

"I just happened to see it was. I don't remember even the context. But ted lasso says he's asked for some advice or something and he says i have to. I have two lessons in life. The first is never take a candy bar on the playground from from whatever the kid's name was elementary school because he it so that's like a genre of joke where someone there's a normal conversation and then somehow it turns into the setup for this joke. That's very thirty rock issue. There's a lot of that. I i don't even like that. I just picture you guys in the writer's room being like okay. Here's the conversation. Where can we implant these jokes and just a rapid fire competition for. Is that how it is like. Because it's and also you risk become. I think thirty rock almost had too many jokes like there were just so many jokes. You couldn't hear all of them. You have the you guys strike the right balance of getting those in there but without without seeming like it's taking over the show. Well i mean we we all love thirty rock minutes straight up one of the best. Tv shows of all time And thirty rock was so incredibly dense. That you know. I not quite consciously but we knew we wouldn't be able to do what they do in any kind of meaningful better way. You know like That that having a show at that pace has now been done. And it's been done the best deal every done so clapper hands and find something else so we we go to slower pace but we do still try to be you know a more like a more eloping dense. I guess and terms of jokes get in it. I mean i guess. It's sort of like a mini competitions in the moment. But like we just we just we just spit ball and sometimes a joke doesn't necessarily fit the sima working on so we right in our car and we put it on the job wall And then later on when we're like we need a joke. In the scene we looked at the joke wall and see if any of those that we loved the moment. can find A new home but yeah. Those digressions is what they're what they're called. Yes and writing digression for ted is definitely like something we spend chunks of time on in the writer's room But in the end jason's better writing those than any of us are digression is is thank you for giving me the technical term because helps might meet just talk about it but the show is full of those and it's all it's ted is full of them. That's how he talks that's how he is in conversations. It's a lot of his conversations with rebecca. Like that. And i don't know if there's a if there's one that comes to mind that you really really loved or just felt like was amazing but i just to give listeners like a another idea of what we're talking about boy. There's just so many that he has there's one in the pilots are not liable the first episode of season. Two which will be out in a few hours that he and i have together or he is in the pub and he's about to talk to me about being concerned that we're the teams bringing a sports therapist and for no good reason. We first have to exchange eight lines about the gin blossoms in the middle of this conversation and then we finally get back into it and then the gym lessons are done. We don't talk about them anymore. But yeah there. We have them all the time and i love him. Well about coach beards relationship status. Ted lasso says coach beard thinks relationships are like steaks. You know you spend more than five minutes on any one of them. They lose their flavor. It's just like i don't know how you keep straight faced during during these about not being saccharin a scene that i just thought is viewer. It's more than once. Seen an angle. That i thought was important for. That was when ted has like a one night. Stand in a hotel with one of rebecca's friends and not that. I don't think that's a bad thing. I don't think. I think ted seems to think it's a bad thing that he's done an immoral thing that he's done. I don't think it's bad. I just think it humanizes him because he's created this problematic situation where he feels guilty. The woman doesn't feel guilty at all. She's like i had a great time. I'm going to order breakfast and all that how did how did you did you decide to write that to show his vulnerability to show. Because i do think that's. That's that scene just as a viewer was important to me to like humanize him in a different way. Yeah we wanted to because the danger with making a dangerous probably not quite right turn but A risk run into with having a character. Who is you know so much of a you know. Human instrument of goodness is that he can be A sexual or non sexual. And if he's a sexual or non sexual some people might say he's not fully human So we didn't want him to be. Yeah you didn't. We didn't want him to be that. We know we wanted to show that side of him somewhere and this organically was the place to do it and we really loved putting in that you know structuring it in such a fake outweighs. The audience kind of goes. Oh my god does that. Rebecca had his door Because you know for a brief period of writer's room it was gonna be rebecca and then And they're like no no. That's that that that should be protected. We need to protect our relationship at all costs. You never happened but but we can get sassy in there. It'll be as fun or more part of the reason why it works is not just because he feels guilty and all this. It's because it shows. He's not unaware of his appeal. He's knows he's charming. He knows he's handsome and he knows like he's pretty confident he's got away with because of your point. Mr good guy is usually like oh people like me. Oh wow what a happy bonus of my goodwill ted is in that moment aware of i have. I have this going on for me. Yeah yeah he's he's just just real are as real as real is that can be so. Here's the joke. I told you. I was watching some scenes and i heard a joke that i didn't hear the first time it's from that it's from that scene. So she wakes up and ted has got an extended check out and said i gotta go but you know you do whatever you want. She says i'm going to order a huge breakfast room service on your tab. And he says i'm happy to be your underhill anytime. I'm happy to be your underhill's anytime. And i said whizzing. Say you say underhill's is this like an obscure. Fletch reference about when fletch goes to the country club in orders. Everything on the underhill's tab. How in the hell do you land there. And how were you okay. With the fact that like an astronomical percentage of viewers are not gonna have any idea what that joke. Well i mean we are. We're all fletch. Fans particularly bill and jason. I mean i think they're part of the starting getting together was Was exploring the possibility of of any kind of you. Know working on fletch but You know i mean the underhill's reference just comes naturally because that's exactly what's happening and in terms of people not getting it we have. We have a million jokes like that..

"I don't know if you were involved at all of the editing of that scene in the setting of that scene. But it's just i've always fastened by these artistic decisions like it would be easy to just fill jason and rupert. The accurate plays rupert and nothing. I'm there's some generic crowd reaction but filming her as a major part of the scene. Was it just it. Rounds it out perfectly. I don't know if you have any insight into that. But i just thought hannah wittingham was also nominated for an emmy like everybody. I might get nominated for an emmy. F this podcast. I thought that was an absolute. Like i don't know i've never seen her before that. That scene alone would have made me a huge fan of hers. Hannah's amazing And yet i mean that's just that's it's good directing and good editing because you know you're shooting her coverage anyway And just leave you to leave a camera. Honored to see if the editor will be able to use it and turns out that she's amazing edge even just silently watching and yet you pepper that into a what he's doing and it it it it it is. I'm glad you call it out because one of the sort of less mentioned elements of of the recipe that scene that That make it. Sing is jason's who is ted lasso. Saying oh so. Rupert has a very cocky moment where he says. Oh we're gonna play the darts for this massive winter. Oh i forgot. I have my personal dark collection on the jason lasso says oh well i forgot i'm left handed is that is that an intentional homage to the princess bride or just it just happened by accident on. Oh that's intentional To princess bride and demanded patinkin Fellow kenwood academy graduate Along with chaka khan And nausea mohammed. Well oh okay. How are you feeling about the chicago. Bulls by way. I know he'd be be because you've been overseas. Been hard for you to follow the team. We were dealing on twitter the day of the trade and and in obviously. They didn't make the plans. Ac levin had to be out for health and safety protocols i don't know i i know you're a big big fan. But how are you feeling about say the team cautiously optimistic. You know with the with the regime of stairs really and you know when they got really of like we. We were able to get billy donovan okay. Okay that's uncharacteristic of us So i'm i'm yeah i'm i'm i don't wanna spoil it i will say i was watching that That draft lottery with with with a lot of hope in my heart But too bad. So was that a. I mean actual best talk. Do you think that ends up being a good trade. Losing losing a high pick for. I was i on the day of the trade. I remember saying. I like this less for the bulls and more for the magic than consensus seems to be like. I think it'll be fine. He's a really good player. He pairs well with the in. But i thought orlando did amazing to get that much for a thirty one year old center. Who's a defensive liability. And i didn't really. I didn't really love it for the bulls and was worried that they were going to trap themselves into just being an okay team for a while. I think there's some hope within the bulls that some free agent somewhere. We'll look at those two guys and say that those those guys be fun to play with. They'd be draw for another really good player. We'll see. I do like pat williams. So i think i don't know if you've got to watch him at all the unconditional but i think he's going to be really good. Yeah okay Myself know who came up with the idea of ted lasso making cookies every day for the team owners. I cannot remember It might have been joe kelley The effort mentioned joe kelley. Who is the writer of that. Second episode Yeah that's that's my guess would be joe kelley but it's certainly. It's been a fun. Fun runners was. It was a fun thing to like. you know. Find the right moment in the season to make that reveal which i think came out pretty well to it. Did i suspected that it was him that making them but it was good to have. My suspicions confirmed so. I told you i was gonna ask you this before what's What's the scene whether you're in it or not. That's maybe not one of the iconic scenes and under the radar see. Maybe there's a great joke in it anywhere but that for some reason is near and dear to your heart as one of the creators of this thing there in episode four which is the the gala episode rupert's appearance. And all that. There's a bunch of great stuff but one sort of table. Setting scene is literally edit table which is the moment. When roy jamie realized they'd been sat at the same table And then ted's enrich go way sit down a parent trap y'all That's just a great little scene of bouncing around you know juno ablaze. Kelly and fill downstream tart and bread. Plays roy and nicholas nate. And today. 'cause they're all they all have moments in that scene. That really really fun. The first time seeing those five characters together it kind of sets the tone for for some relationship stuff you know in the love triangle and it has one of my absolute favorite jokes of the whole series. Which is When when kelly compliments nate on his suit and he says thank you. It's the first suit. I've ever owned a second set of our own. The first one was a naked baby. Rewatch that scene today and nobody laughs and to me the funniest part of it is when lasso says yeah the the term birthday super really helped you there keys. Everytime jimmy hart shirtless during that scene for some for some reason that scene also as a very good joke related to the parent trapping which is that ted lasso says i just i just said buyer the writing of jokes. Because i can't do it and i just i'm fascinated by the process so the joke is says i like my because there's locker room dispute between between Roy and jamie old veteran and the young hockey hotshot. Who's a jerk and selfish at that point in this in this series not making the extra pass which is his mba expression that gets into the show and ten lasso. Says i like my locker rooms like my mom's swimsuit in one piece. How many versions of that joke are there. Are there other. Like i like my locker rooms like and then there's like seven other punch lines. You chose this one over. No i think in that case that was that was the clear clear one because you know one piece bathing suit is is is a phrase that exists so i think he's let us let us right there. It is one of two jobs. We have during the course of the season that are about a mother or mother-in-law's mazing bathing suit. Though which is something we need to. We need to explore more or less. I'm not sure but it's weird that we do at twice. You have this brand of joke. That is almost thirty. Rock ish and jason today consists of course on thirty rock as as liz lemon's love interest. It's a joke that is like like a normal conversation is happening. And then a joke sort of organically emerges and takes takes over the conversation to the one that i was watching today. I just happened to see it was. I don't remember even the context. But ted lasso says he's asked for some advice or something and he says i have to. I have two lessons in life. The first is.

He had a tweet about it Shortly after the show came out. I forget what it was but it was it was it was really really is really really lovely. sidebar We had a new writer's assistant season to A guy in matthew like kid trying to make it in this business and And i wasn't there that day. He got introduced or something. But it's like all over zoom or have time And then one day like slowly start to realize oh this kid's nineteen at. He's living with his parents. Okay cool. do we come back from lunch. Wants and there's someone on the zoom. There's someone in that room and matt His last name is kerr and And i go i go. Is that your dad that yeah you tell. Looks like steve kerr. I looked closer. Holy that steve. Kerr steve kerr. There's leads in it gives wave and an off. He goes But i still think he was he his tweet about the show was was sincere and not just trying to help his sons gigi pushed on. So i don't i i ran into the warriors contingent in chicago for the draft. Combine and this topic came up and i completely forgot about until you just brought up. Steve kerr that that his son is involved in the show. And i can confirm for you that steve. Kerr was overjoyed. That he had found someone else who wanted to talk about. Ted lonzo out of nowhere and grinned at each other like stupid slobbering idiots so about how much we love. A tha. that's amazing and by the way it's come in. The obama tweet is coming. It's just a matter of time like you. That's what the crescendo is going to be. It feels like an obama show. He likes sports. It's going to happen you know we. We didn't make his end of twenty twenty list of things to watch. So i don't know maybe we missed the boat. There is helping. we'd get there but oh well okay. Another another deep cut. Nba references. I i don't know how i noticed. But scanning the locker nameplates of richmond. Afc your it must be seen. Whether panning across the locker room from player to player in the nameplates are in the background. I see coup coach. seven. And i'm like i don't think we've met a a character called coach. Someone in this writer's room is a bulls fan and his just inserted this easter egg for lunatics. Like me to get very excited about was this you. I was a driving force in the coach. Yes when you know one of the fun parts of doing this. Was you know we had cared. Who hadn't as and we were going to catch those people but then we still need a names to fill out the world And i just thought like well. Every premier league team has at least one eastern bloc person Not always croatian but often croatian it's Let's honor the waiter. Let's get them in there 'cause yeah i will love tony coach for all my days. There is one of our extras essays. Who's around many lines is coach. He so he is there. Okay but but but yeah. He is yet to figure in ninety stories. But but yeah good i just know that it brings. I don't know how many people noticed there's probably stuff. I haven't noticed like that. But they brought me great great joy. Let's talk about some of the icon scenes from the first season. The first the most famous one is probably the darts. Game scene between ted and evil rupert. And it's got a gazillion hits on youtube. It's it's a delightful seen how and it's based on the walt whitman quote. Be curious not judgmental. This is what ted lasso is more or less lecturing evil rupert about who who who who decided where did that quote come from. I know where it came from gift from what women were did it. Come from into the show's universe. That's all jason. He he knows that quote And he you know it's it's it may or may not have come from what whitman That may be apocryphal but certainly associated with him and It's a it's just a great quote you know. it's a great way to. It's a great way to look life. and yeah. I think that that speech wasn't even originally in that script Getting close to shooting that scene. Jason just kinda came up with it and he put that in and it's a real it's it's it's a little bit of a bit of a testament to to honor your ideas when you have them because even if they don't get much time to marinate they might be really good because there was there was a fairly short lead in if our correctly between him coming up with that s us actually getting it on screen and The aspirin pretty cool to see how much people who who who in how decided to have him say barbecue sauce before the last balls. I those jason. Actually there was a little more like one more sentence before that That was cut So there was. There was context barbecue sauce. I think it works much better without context. 'cause i love watching people. Just try to like figure out what the hell that means. And what's going on there It's kind of wonderfully enigmatic Yeah there was a line before that. I don't know what the line was. I wasn't I wasn't even on set that day. Because i was Finishing writing the next episode But yeah the standalone barbecue sauce is at my you know. You can't see any shifts chefs people. The chef's kiss by favorite part of that scene in a. It's it's beautiful. I mean that in the most sort of soulful way is the reaction shots from hannah wittingham. Who plays rebecca. The team owner rupert ex wife. It's just an unbelievable bit of acting accommodation of happiness and a overcome with emotion facial expressions..

"This is a basketball podcast nominally. So let's do some basketball stuff. Because and i think because you and jason today is obviously a big. Nba fan their nba references sprinkled into this show including one of which. I'm not sure anyone is noted. We're gonna talk about only. I would notice because i'm a crazy person but the most famous one was recreation of alan iverson's practice rant and the twist on it is. It's the coach giving the practice rant at the player and not the other way around and a lot of it is verbatim. There obviously deviations because the sports are different. All that for people who haven't seen it. It's an amazing rendition by jason today because as ted lasso of alan iverson practice ran. How did you decide to do this. How did you execute it. And how did you decide to have the coach. Sort of reverse the roles. It'd be the one giving the rent it. It happened in the flow of a writer's session talking about. I think we weren't even talking about that episode yet. We're kind of talking about things in general and then as as things just sometimes come up randomly allen iverson speech came up and immediately it was like ted gives that speech but he's advocating for practice over a game as opposed to a game over practice. Yes boom file that away like you know. Only only about half are writer's room knows that reference whatever's somewhere like okay. What what else are we talking about. Those new. It was was like okay. There's there's something there that's really funny And it was. Jason eventually chose where to put it. And i also think in the end you know his final touches on and definitely his performance of it really elevated to this great moment An i i'll always wonder because i'll never be able to experience this way. What it's like to watch that scene having no idea that we're making a reference. It seem so weird it'd be like Why really yelling. So i my wife. My wife is not familiar with the alan iverson practice rent so and but but as someone who knows it. I had my own delightful sensation which is the first time he says practice. It doesn't really register and then he says it again. You have this wonderful waterfall of the thing you like. They're doing the iverson practice ran. I had to stop the show and explain. There's player who complained about practice and like other exactly the same. It's exactly how many takes how many takes did people start laughing. Did the cast get the joke. Like tell me more. I think we probably do. I mean give all the different ain't coverage you know camera angles that we got it Probably did ten or fifteen takes total And you know that. Allow jason have ten or fifteen takes getting closer to getting it right. In terms of the the words themselves but for the most part the cast and crew had no idea what you're doing so it was between one of the camera moves during one of the camera moves that jason finally got this phone out and you know. Twelve dudes in richmond shirts. Gather around a phone and watch the speed like. Oh okay and jason really gets into the backstory. That too will what. I was going through at the time and Yeah there's been a few moments during the course of the season. I wish i can remember others. Were like we're doing a thing. The cast doesn't quite get it. They just give it full commitment anyway and then afterwards we explain it and they're like that's great except in a cockney accent when did you so the commercials were like two thousand thirteen fourteen. I think something like that. Then you have this idea for a show that what did you begin shooting. Twenty thousand nine twenty twenty. I dunno shooting schedules. Work something like that. So when in that so in six or seven years there was the moment when you knew when you thought for the first time. Only god this. We might actually get to do this. This isn't just a pipe dream that we have like. When did it become not like. When did you strike the deal. But when did it become like. Oh we might actually get to do this it. It was when Jason said the words bill lawrence For the first time Bill lawrence's our showroom and the fourth grade of the show for folks who don't know him he made scrubs and spin city Wrote in the first season of friends. cougar town. As his as well as jason saying he's forgotten more about television than any of us will ever know And and bill gets things done and once once jason was like hey is all the are to lhasa material that we can your workshop for while is that still online somewhere like yes man. That's so that's how the internet works local. I'm talking to bill lawrence tomorrow. Good bubalo And sure enough three months later. Me and jason. And you're having dinner with bill lawrence two months after that we're in a regiment unbelievable unbelievable success story and you've read all a of the interviews done in the past month. You've been asked a gazillion times. Like how does it feel when it becomes a hit. When did you know that it was becoming a hit. What's the piece of feedback where you were like. Oh my god. It's becoming ahead. So i don't i wanna ask that question differently but i don't quite know how to ask it differently. It must continue to happen every day..

"They don't get relegated and on we go and then like two months into the writer's room bill lawrence. Who was you know. I think must've been spending the previous two months getting familiar with the definition of relegation as ted does finally out of nowhere. 'cause we talk about relegation much at end they should just get relegated. These right And that was a that was a big material change. And i think that ending- fits the fits the series much much better. And i think it's a big reason. Why what's another reason why people get attached to the show. 'cause like i know i found in my soccer. Fandom spoiler might be over now My soccer fandom. I i've gotten attached to teams more by watching them. Lose the big game than win the big game and i guess that's true and a lot of sports but like watching holland. After i moved to amsterdam watching them lose european damage semifinal was like i'm holland for life now like this is the worst thing i've ever felt any. Don't ever wanna feel this again. And i don't know is that is that you need to soccer really. I don't think so. I bet there's plenty of plenty of one off games closer together heartbroken over your chicago guy and and i think the cubs and the red sox both. I don't know that they lost something when they find the one. But the nature of supporting. The team's probably changed right. Did you are you. Are you a cubs fan As north side childless outside parents. I had a complicated relationship with chicago baseball in general. But i've been to more calls games and sox games okay fair enough. So so you mentioned the Unrealistic even for a show like this the magic trick that you did. I don't know how you did. It was to simultaneously leaning in to the preposterousness of a football coach. Being offered a premier league soccer coaching job. Without any knowledge of how soccer works you leaned into it. Acknowledge it you look at it in the face. It's part of the show. You don't look away from it but at the same time it's played straight. I don't even know how to explain it. It's played straight by all the characters. They all acknowledge it but they all just sort of say okay. This is our reality. We're going to just work within it. And i don't know how you struck that balance but it's like a magic trick because my assumption was we'll just stop talking about how ridiculous it is it it'll be it'll be a show about something else but it never it's always in the show. How did you do that. Well we were. I don't say saddled with that premise but that premise was was what we started with. You know because that that that was the commercial And you know in improv. We have you know we jason Background there's there's the philosophy of the worst idea with the best support. The city with the most support beats the best idea with support and so yeah You know mike gundy. Suddenly working at watered is is a horrible idea. So let's support the hell out of it you know. Let's go in all guns blazing and then separately from that. Because the idea so ridiculous i think it was behold none us to Surround that that premise with real characters you know and real people and try to depict this whole thing as realistically possible so that the various this.

"The nba season is over. And i will start this by saying about eight months ago. Couple friends of mine neighbors said you. Gotta you gotta sit down and do ted lasso. You have to do it. You're not gonna regret it. And i said that's the that's the one where they did. Those commercials on nbc. Like ten years ago they made a whole show out of that. They suggest trust us and do it and most decisions on making life are bad in general. That's the best decision. I made the entire year. Ted lasso is a national treasure returns for season two on apple tv today by the time This goes up and joining me on the low post podcast. Co-creator co stars the mysterious. Enigmatic coach beard brendan hunt. It is an honor. How are you doing. What an intro zach. Oh my god. Yes i mean i feel like every episode is probably a special episode but already call you on a net but then you going. Oh you're sweet a good on. Its frantic right now very busy. I'm very happy to be here. I've been reading you for years. So the pleasures is mine. Sir twenty emmy nominee. The whole casca nominated basically including you. You're an emmy nominee among among many other things twenty. Nominations which is like i thought. Only game of thrones kind of shows where there's a cast of nine thousand people and they get every special effects nomination. I thought only those kind of shows that get so many nominations a peabody award which is like what up the people who won the pulitzer prize. That's insane and just the success of this show is unbelievable. It's completely well deserved you. Guys have created something very very special. So i will start by asking you this. It's known as the sweet show the peabody awards said it was the antidote to toxic masculinity which. I guess we're going to be ended up to something. The virus would be the first thing to be the antidote to and toxic. You'll be up there. How did you manage though as a writer to make a show that sweet without being saccharine like what. What are the steps. You took to make sure we hit that sweet spot no pun intended. Where yet sweet and positive and happy. But it's not sugary. It's not a romantic comedy. It's not gonna make people roll their eyes over the steps to get there. We save a lot. That's kind of kind of secret weapon because most shows that have been described by people as being this kind of you know positive thing you know high heaven Or something like those are very very you know conservative. Sorta shows i guess you know and they and they wanna be super family friendly in not piss off any sponsors We want to sound like the world. Sounds we wanna talk. Oh people actually talk And and i think that is some of those two things together to things that don't often go together In and maybe that's what is helping people sort of find the whole thing. You know helpful. A realistic at it appears to use the language of the real world. Then it's easier to believe that even the show with ridiculous premises this is is taking place in the world. You live in brett goldstein. Who plays roy kent The jaded veteran soccer player is instead. I had never seen him before. I want to know about how you found him and all that but he is instantly like top five. All time. f-bomb droppers. He has he'll he'll ride that f- like like i was watching springsteen's today he is an unbelievable dropper of the f-bomb and i don't even have a question did you did you realize that is he is. He is like what he has a chance to be. What clay davis was for. He has a chance to be for the f bomb. While there's there's no higher compliment than to be the clay davis of another word. Yeah i mean that character is is based loosely on On roy keane and roy keane was very who played for those who would know he. He played for manchester united on their their best teams and he played for the republic of ireland and he was famously. Very combustible and very Foul mouth he quit Ireland right before world cup because he hated the manager. And the if i had this right the The quote attributed to him was Shove it up. Your bollocks which doesn't sound that dirty us but apparently pretty dirty over there as also not physically possible. I don't know how you should shove. Things up your testicles. Any who every every we have is an attempt to honor the The beautiful source material that is original arcay breath fantastic bread also limited also emmy nominated. yep yep But yeah he he makes He makes a tiny tiny melody. How how so so. Correct me. If i'm wrong but i know this is not wrong. But the show is shot in london or in the uk. And i believe you guys fought you and jason akers whose name. We probably should have said by. Now he is. Ted last fought hard for that and i actually think viewer. It makes a difference just the scenes of him walking from his apartment on the streets of. I think it's supposed to be notting hill right like that. It just lends authenticity to it but by follow up question would be. did it. help you find local english both extras and co-stars. And how did you like some of these people. I have never seen before. How did you find them was just an audition process. They came in with lots of other people. Yeah basically everyone auditioned and none of us had worked with these people before The exception being the bill lawrence are showrunner. Had worked with bread. Something a few years ago but Juneau is the only person along anthony head who got offers that everyone else. Yeah just just auditioned and And they just take out a ton ton of good actors over Over there and they can all do anything you know like they this these scripts on our show. There's a lot of push pull between you know quote unquote heavy moments. Send and comedy moments and we like to relate to turn on a dime and and is ben no problem for any of these people And they're all good hang to. Which is the oldest part of why we have such a good time on this thing. Everyone's everyone's pretty damn cool. No turkey says. Jason says if you haven't watched season one of ted lasso and you care about not knowing plot developments. I mean it's a comedy but there are plot. Developments stopped listening. Now that your spoiler. I don't know the timetable. How you shot season one. But was there a plotline or a character development that like midway through changed and by the end. You're like wow. I didn't know that we would end up here but we ended up here and it really worked not while we were shooting it but while we were well we were writing it. There was a there was a big change You know me. And jason and joe kelley. The original creators of the show long long ago had written an outline for a season. And we didn't want it to be a typical Sports movie are where you these plucking underdogs win the title at the end. That's just not. That's too realistic even for for this show But also it would be kind of like wonderfully soccer of it. If it's the battle for relegation which is which is something that That people don't really know here but we'd introduce them to it. We'd set it up and we shall mistakes and for you know years were like. Oh yeah okay and we set up ellegation probation then at the end the happy ending..

So you wait until everything is locked. And then you start training up your other studies. Now, they had a great on samba, and they could've tapped somebody to take over the role for the night, I suppose, but this production was really ambitious and complicated.
