Leadership Lessons From Ted Lasso: Tell the Truth

"Next thing is just tell the truth. You know, this is hard, okay? And it may sound funny to you. And as I tell the truth, but just sometimes the situations that you're in just call for saying that we need to tell the truth. This is where we're at. This is situation we're in. And here's how we can fix it. I knew as a pastor and as a member of Congress, one of the first rules that I had from my staff was this. You know, what I ask you is just never surprise me. You know, if you have something that is going wrong or you have something in this man, just don't surprise me. Don't let it spring up because you're too scared to tell me the truth. That either I messed up or I didn't do what I was supposed to do or you didn't do what you're supposed to do, but don't surprise me. Folks in your businesses in your lives and your families. There is a great lesson to be learned is just don't surprise each other. That is when the most struggle come to someone who has been a counselor for years and dealing with this, what I find so many times whether it's business relationships or personal relationships or political relationships, however you want to put them. It is that surprise factor. Oh, well I didn't want to I didn't want to hurt your feelings. Folks, sometimes you just got to hurt people's feelings. Now that doesn't mean that you're out there, you know, going around intentionally being a jerk. That's not what I'm saying, but sometimes the honesty hurts. Some of the best lessons in my life have come from people that were able to tell me the truth. I've told this story many times in speaking engagements when I was pastoring a young pastor. I stood at the back of the church as a church was getting out, you know, parishioners would come by and the people who came that morning and most of them would come out past her, great job, love the sermon, great service, gloves Harmon. Thanks for sharing. And you know, as a pastor and for a pastor's after who might be listening to this, you know, that's sort of boost your ego up a little bit. You know what I mean? I'll say it. You know, you worked on your sermon. You want to get it up very good. And so you're looking for that affirmation and hey, we did it well. Well, a sweet lady came up in her name. She still laughs. She's over a hundred years old and Rosetta and I are. Came to me one morning and she looked at me and she this was about 25, 30 years ago, so she was she was going right along and she was just wonderful at being a sounding board for honesty. She came in and she said, preacher I enjoyed your sermon. Well, of course, I was feeling pretty good. Miss rose had a lot in my sermon. And then she looked at me and she held onto my hand for a second and he said, I like it better the first time this morning, but it was okay. And I sat there for a second, and I said, what? The first time, and what she reminded us was, is I had gotten to a point in my sermon and I thought I had to repeat myself because maybe I just didn't think people were understanding it. And I repeated part of my message and what she was telling me was is sort of a great life lesson is make your point and then

TV's White Guys Are in Crisis

"So we're going to try this episode to critique the position of white guys on television without sort of repeating the problem that white guys on television currently present which is that. they're not the point and yet they're the point. I want to dive in by talking about this great piece. Catherine wrote for vulture about the crisis. That white guys are going through genetic. Maybe you'd think it's not really an emergency. So bad so white guys are still of course all over television as they are in the world but they are on television in a different way in certainly in some new shows and they have been in the past. And you can see that in shows like peacock sitcom rutherford falls. Amc's genre bending. Kevin can himself and the two big hits of summer. Hbo's hotel drama. The white lotus featuring a bevy of white guys who were going to get into and of course ted lasso. Basically the white guy who used to be. Tv's default protagonists are not but who are they. What does it say about them. And us catherine have i. We're gonna keep talking now. I would just shamelessly coach from your piece. So why don't you tell us. It's central argument. Yeah for what i think the framing of it as a crisis it has been really interesting to see responses from two different sides of sort of people who look at the headline that are immediately put off by it. People who are like. I don't want to hear about a crisis for white guys like i'm done. We talked about them too much. And then of course from the other like terrifying side of white guys being like extremely mad at me and sending me all kinds of emails but it was in response to something. I started noticing as a pattern in new television shows that were coming out this summer. And something i saw. Rutherford falls and kevin can f- himself in particular.

I don't know if that's the case i mean i think it's it's i am still enjoying it. I don't know if it's If you know quite quite it's a slightly different Show in the second season. 'cause it's not like purely optimistic and upbeat there you have kind of a. You have mean guy coached coach lead tasso right the Oh you've got a very dark turn to the roy character.

Ted Lasso: Lessons on Leadership From a Fictional Character

"I for anyone who has the unfortunate fate of not having watched head lasso yet. What are you even doing people. How would you describe the character of ted lasso. So i think ted so is it shouldn't be a serious character right. This is a college football coach from kansas. Who is going over to coach. Manage in the english premier league. The whole setup feels absurd. Which i think is why the character seems to work so well because this guy is a. He's folksy. he has these things he will say. I mean come on. Sam was more open than the jar peanut butter on my kitchen counter. That's right y'all don't know. I like to keep the peanut butter open. That way whenever i walk back and just stick my finger and yet he has this inner goodness that i think when when he comes across people that they seem to react to you coaching football make. You are a legend for doing something. So i mean it's meno murdy well you know. I've heard that tune before. But here i am still dancing. Ted last. So is the quintessential mid western kindness guy. You know a guy who wants to do well in the world treat other people the right way and just kind of live life with optimism and kindness and all those like grape characteristics that we'd all like to have. Yeah i think it really is his relentless optimism. That wins you over in the show. Is there a particular scene in the series that you think really captures that element of his personality. You know i was thinking about this. In the first episode. He's gone over to england. He's been introduced to the media. He talks to the team. And everybody's obviously it's not going well and then him and coach beard kind of redecorate the office. They put up the john wooden pyramid of success. They put up. All these american touchstones like muhammad ali poster in the miracle on ice poster all in the office. And then roy kent the kind of the you know. The quintessential english footballer. He comes in the office and he calls him ronald mcdonald and i think he uses an expletive and then he leaves the office and ten lasso goes he thinks may now wait. We win them over if he thinks he's mad. Now wait until we win them over.

"I don't know what that's gonna look. Like but i hope that it surprises us. Oh yes. I trust them implicitly. Like i literally as soon as i saw the sports psychologist and i saw you know. She's she's not given the time of day which is obviously as soon as i saw her. I was like oh. Ted's gonna get a therapist. He's going to have to unpack trauma. But you know okay. So do i do want to wrap this up by asking a question about anti heroes which you did bring up before you know not too long ago. Tv's most compelling shows were defined by darkness and like you mentioned anti hero characters. I mean or talk about breaking bad. We're talking about mad men you know today. The tone for some shows is much more likely to be earnest. Where do you see. Tv heading though like. Do we want darkness or lightness. Do we want both do. We not know i mean. We're in a good shape in terms of like there's so much potential for story because there are so many mediums in which story can be told whether it's someone doing their own stuff on youtube or through all these various different streaming services. I think we can have both like. That's the ideal right is that you don't have one narrative because that's boring like it's it's boring if you turn on tv and you see the same show over and over again. Whether as much as i love madman like as much as i love these like very intense deep dive into like strange characters are anti hero characters. Ted lasso is new indifferent because that sort of empathy and kindness was relegated to television for younger viewers..

"It's okay that was just one we can go out there and do it but something else i love about. His character is that he rubs off on everyone. Like i mean you. See it from the very beginning. But like with roy and with jamie and even with rebecca in the scene that you mentioned. She was annoyed with him for forgiving her so easily and then she went and apologized to another character that she had wrong. So it really just. It has domino effect. That i don't think we ever see in tv. You know yet. And the thing with the positivity in particular is a show again and again shows you that that's actually the worst part of ted's character you know. Coach veered is like you. Can't you have to win. You can't just be like everything's great you know it's all fine like there's actual lies writing on this and you're having you can't just like wash it away with this attitude. We have to be real about it or you know ted trying to get through this divorce. That is happening in his life and not dealing with the heart of the matter and then having a panic attack and lashing out at knee and hurting the people who are around him and like hurting internally because he won't deal with the ugly side of things. Because he's so obsessed with this idea of positivity and i think we're gonna see more of that in the second season with this relationship to therapy. That's happening exactly all right. Well we'll be right back with author previ- chipper on whether or not ted lasso is too good to be true and just like.

It's about an american. Football coach has been brought over to england to coach a premier league team in the first season. I don't want to give away any spoilers. I guess for someone who who's not seen the show at all but it's very much you know Fish out of water situation and Clashing cultures and there are multiple reasons for ted to have come over and a lot of different. Storylines weaving together But at its heart. It's about this man who is in a new situation and how he reacts to it and impacts the people around him with just beautiful positively. I'm yeah i.

"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.

"The tv show is not without pedigree like this is a show that comes from creators of other very successful projects including bill lawrence. Who i believe was one of the main driving forces behind scrubs i know he was actively involved if not the lead of in a producer or show runner of spin city. There there are a lot of these a lot of really talented people that are involved in the making of this. Who have like apple is throwing money at really skilled creators at people who had had success in other ways lawrence also bill lawrence also created town. I that on my notes so he he was involved in a lot of these really successful or beloved or both shows and he's making ted lasso for apple. Tv plus and yet. They did a really good job. It's really really good. A lot of their shows are like better than you want them to be like actually like some of them are not like some of them are bad as good as you would expect which is not very of some of them are really great like we were talking before we came on here that the people who have watched for all mankind like are like nuts about it and swear by. I've heard from so many people that i would love it and that it's like the best show that's currently on tv. So i'm very intrigued about that. So there is good content. But if like if it's just for ted lasso alone. I think that you will be well served. And if not like you've got a podcast that'll tell you what's going on on the show and you can listen to us and the reason we brought it up right from the jump is you can do that. Seven day free trial. And you could watch all ted land so easily in that seven day since he's in one it is only the ten episodes each about a half an hour without much extra content. So you're talking about five hours of television. Essentially a couple movies worth of television. And you could definitely knock that out in a week and you'll probably want to even though you're going to want to savor it and you're going to want it to last forever. The good news is twelve. More episodes are coming. You could absolutely do your trial. See if you like it. There was a time. I don't know if that's the case now used to be able to watch the pilot even without signing up for the trial. I don't know if that is still kidding. It's still the case but it was in like the really the glory days so now so if you want you can you can do the seven-day trial knockout all the season..

"That comes out before season to where we will do a much deeper dive into season. One the characters the story lines that transpire over the course of that first season some of the cliffhanger some loose ends that need to be resolved as we go into season two maybe introduce a little bit more structure into the show is not an impossibility as well. Although certainly longtime pusher listeners are laughing at that notion we'll we'll we'll see how that goes as we move forward. We will love to get feedback from you along the way. Plenty of ways that you'll be able to do that. You can certainly tweet at both antonio and myself and tony was at. Ac missouri was always forget.

The top is yeah. This shows on apple. Tv plus what do you wanna do fight about it. It's not our choice. It's just the way it worked out. You may not have apple. Tv plus perhaps you would like to explore ted lasso via apple tv plus unfortunately they did this thing where it was like free for a year you had a new apple product and that was great and now it's like all right pay me. That's where they're at right now. If if nothing apple knows how to create like a captive audience in a closed system right like they know how to get you in and keep you in holy fair. No harm no foul. The guy do what they gotta do but you do have to have an apple. Tv plus subscription in order to watch. Ted lasts certainly at least in the united states. I'm not sure about elsewhere right now on apple. Tv plus you can start a free trial seven days free and then you're looking at four ninety nine a month ted lasso season one is ten episodes season..

"Great joke with the nigerian player. I feel tap away about. Yeah about the american army and it's like oh yeah but like the fact that the evil lady takes it back home and she's like thinking about it but just the fact like what a what a personal taught like a it didn't feel it didn't feel like sometimes you shows feel like i got hit a beat hit be hit a be. This is a personal moment. And then this one on top and then i bring it back because it has to be. I felt so genuine. That ted lasso really got these argument from his son and he really really loved it got homemade kazoo and he really was helping people by giving up his event as a metaphor. Like so sincere surreal. It didn't feel put on at all very good. Every beat of the show feels so genuine. The writing is so good. It's so fucking smooth that it just fucking it works. Oh well and it's crazy to me and when you there the whole thing. They're working up to a sports thing working up to this big final match. And i'm not going to spoil it but like even you're just like it. It works so well and ted lessons there with his fucking kindness and they're trying the best of jason soothing courts as the lead so good sports boys trying their best is like. He's getting the precis deserves because he really is an amazing actor and comedian. Improviser and writer. Snl there all right as he came from the improv community where he put his pace onstage being doing improv doing writing stuff in his shows. It really shows and it's really nice. Because like i'm doing that. Now you know like. I'm doing improv. Classes improv show sketches and writing. These things you know. It's it's so it's just like sometimes every once in a while i can see the craft of it you know. Yeah 'cause i'm learning. I'm like actively learning at right now. So it's really nice to see it's very encouraging Do you have any favorite moments from the shop that we haven't had the chance to a lot of my favorite moments. Come later in the afternoon and i don't want to spoil anything. But in the first three episodes. I love the when he goes out to dinner. Trent krim and Who's the journal was down. Yeah and they dislike are talking and he. He cracks him. You know and a reading the early Report on what he's going to print the next day the paper and it's like it starts off negative but it's really positive and that's like that's why i wanted to watch the first. We have sisters end ended. Third absolutely like this is the whole point of the show. He's gonna win people over and this is. How do i love the ask of him. Winning person over one by one by one. It's so honest. So real i love. I feel like i've seen something else that's happened but i can't think of it. The thought of it being so human that each character is getting when one over one by one it just feel so you know it makes me remember like Agai didn't like me at work. Because i had to push him out of the way for like a food delivery or something like i didn't remember it like i got. I was like in a hurry so my first impression was wrong. You know so like me for a minute. But then by the time i left the company i was favourite. Managing one of his favorite people at the work that we've stayed in touch more friends. And it's like yeah. Yeah you put in the work you people see the real you a head is all about that right. He's all about putting yes authentic self forward And a one hundred percent i also. I love the friendship. That is slowly forming between rebecca and keely on the show after she finds out that she felt like whatever helped her with the newspaper that was gonna and she comes in and really chummy with her and she's like oh you're actually pretty nice and it's it's so good. It's so good information Delay she's a great character. Yes it's good to see rebecca's walls coming down a little bit. Which is nice that's Juneau a juno temple is really good actress. I've never her. She's unlike atonement like periods. Stop and like all this other like high brow. Fuck in acting stuff so like i didn't recognize her because she's like this model fucking funny but she's she's She's one of my favorites out. You know yeah. Because oddly enough she also leads with sincerity like unlike some of the football players whose walls are up or whatever she liked knows who she is. She's comfortable with it. She knows you know she's with jamie kind of an asshole. She knows that she's pretty that such skinhead but she also you know when she goes and asks ted. If you'd rather be a pandora line is like a genuine question. They're having a conversation. She's like a genuine person with all. This is really interesting. It's hard to pull off that. She the show doesn't just focus on ted less a legacy earlier. You get so many beats with all these characters in. Its grazie. Their characters develop. It is awesome saying getting more. Becker getting worse. Keeley getting out more of all these other members of the team to its nick questions for you. Yeah ready for him. Did you like the show. yes. I very much like. The show's spoilers. When you recommend the show literally. I feel like a half to because of apple fucking plus. Tv so no one. A lot of people have been. But nobody's watching it but again if it was on netflix. Or hulu. I feel like this would be. This could be the next office. Yes like it's that good right off. The bat officers are good at the beginning. Now it's not parks and recs take six episodes to even get started. Head lasts right away because one hundred percent. If you can sign up for a free trial bar it from someone whatever forgot how to watch the show because it is worth it and each of the half hour is like eight episodes. You can binge it in a day nick. Are you going to continue to. I made somebody said hey. Can you watch the first three episodes the next day. So i can watch the rest of the season with you. That's a conversation. I had today and they are no excuses. They are now watching the stream so they can watch the first three episodes now quickly happen so good good good good adequately yes good. I am happy about that.

"But it was just so refreshing to see that because it's so honest and true and i feel like a lot of people feel like this but it's not talked about because you know what going to tell somebody you know you're too fucking you're too nice you know. Nobody owes me anything because of nice. That's how it works. Yeah but it was real. It was real nice saying that you know so thank you. Thank you for giving the shop because that was that was that hit hard by really nice but then also going forward in the show. He doesn't stop being that guy. It was really reminded like you still do. You still got to lead with their best foot forward even if you less falling apart and everything's perfect. I mean as you continue to watch this show. A he hits hard times he'd like gets it pretty hard and his relationship with his Wife continues to affect him in different ways and the stress of fronting a team and also the fact that people are out to get him like. It's all just. It's a lot for him but it's it's still good to watch like i as someone who like does it want to always consume content. That's going to remind him that he's part of a block party right now. I just want to escape and be happy for a little bit. And despite the fact In spite of all the harshness. That's in this show. There's a lot of happy a lot of good and it's just like totally totally worth it to watch if you're looking for a good time during his block party. I want to ask you something you are. You've had different. And i only want to ask because just to lift availa my own life very recently. I got into a very a heated discussion with somebody in charge at the place that i work and as you know as maybe not a lot of people i used to do a lot of managing and being charged and i stepped away from that so i had more time to be an actor so now i'm not in that role but i have the luxury of knowing if both sides now and i got very heated conversation about how best to motivate people to do a better job until like the team together and you know i couldn't help but notice like all the little tips and tricks he was doing in. The show. are exactly what. I was arguing or yeah And i just wanted to kind of get your take on it so like at work they want to put the hosts and part of the tipple so some of my tips will go to the host. It's not the way it's ever been done. It's the way it is at some restaurants. Yeah but the rationale so they feel like they're part of the team. They feel like they do more. If the elect take more ownership but my plays has had host after host after host leave resigned get fired leaving resigning in every single time. I've talked to them. Because as i'm sure you can get a lot of people come to talk to me about stuff. Yeah it's never about the money it's about the way they're it's about the way that they're micromanage us about the way that they are not giving any agency as a person at all. And i had to like late and be like. That's not why it's not working. It's because of you. So why are you taking my money away but just wanted to get your take on like his leadership style and his coaching style. Like what you thought of it like how it made. You feel like all your jar. I feel like it's hard. Because i come from from that. I guess is still a team but definitely working in in business and all this shit. It's like it's hard when you still go on. You have to manage people. And i try to just be as friendly and open and honest as possible while still kind of maintaining certain boundaries of you know a workplace in not getting too attached to like your co workers in order like your interns or whatever but also trying to create a friendly welcoming environment and if you are in the position like i was a mentor to a lot of apprentices at a certain point like teaching them what you have and also learning from them and adapting as you go and it's it's really interesting like i when i was my job when i used to mentor. People like i had some people come in it was it was meant for people in college but i had people come in who could be a college at any age so there are people who are like forty for like or older who were under me and i kind of had to like remind myself at even though they were older. And i'm like. I respect them for that. Like i'm here to teach them things and i and the they are coming to be an expecting me to help them out and i need to do that and i have a responsibility. Feel like lasso doesn't like he does in fact take his responsibility seriously and that he him being a coach like he says he doesn't care about the points whether they win or lose like he cares about making a team and that's the foundation that's going to lead them to victory and i liked that. I like approach a lot i. I love the way that he handles situation. And the way that he tries to break people down in order to build a backup not in a negative way. But you know what i mean. No get them back to the basics. What they care about what to they really. Are you know like in your area. See at working out working in specific areas. I'm like super like the suggestion. Box thing the positive reinforcement to jamie a negative reinforcement. Roy like how he's using all these very specific tactics. That i like honestly i used. I used these tactics at work. You know so. It was really nice seeing it from like a little dip because it's like a sports in a metaphor way but like It was just. It was just interesting. 'cause i've never again consumed media. That has all the things that i do as a manager in all the things that i do to lead. Are things that just kind of like conditioning. Learn walk away. But i'm like watching them being like done in like really cool you know. Reinforce his very realistic as wrapping up. Here I just wanna maybe hit a couple of like our favorite like little moments of the show. Like for example. One of mine was the book thing. So ted lasso gives a gift to every player. Every single payer gets a book and they all get their very own book. So like specifically roy gets a wrinkle in time and he calls. I was like what books this original time. And then i forget if it's his niece or the principal or someone's like oh it's about somebody who doesn't want to be the leader but they have to be the one and then roy looks at ted is like am i the little girl. And he's like. I hope so and later roy book and reads the book and he gets it like yeah thought of the thought of giving a book to every player on a team to help them learn a lesson about themselves to help them grow. Yeah and that's like your coal as the leader is so cool. It's like that freeman so good. So in the fact that it works to like it just it. It works so well they jimmy threw it out of course but jamie's the hardest nut to crack in in the whole show but i i like all the side characters. Each side character gets a little moments. You're there and i love all those little moments. There's an episode where they're trying to get rid of the ghosts that are in The locker room. And it's really nice. It's really heartwarming. It's really finding good writing. Because he mentioned he believes in ghosts in the episode yet. Rewind rented rewatching the series to you. Pick up. it's it's it's very watchable. I just fucking watched it. Everybody watching it again. And i'm like catching shit. That i didn't see before and i'm like noticing jokes like it was so hard to watch episodes mark. It was so hard finish. I was like i need more. Another one of my favorite moments from the show was the fact that he got a care package from his son. And it had those little army men in them away. He starts giving them away and like..

I could literally literally any other accent besides british australian. They're like so many white people any of the other ones. You give me a little bit of it. You've heard i can do like a little out of nowhere. I cannot do the white people that has worked. It's gotta be southerner but you said it was hard and southerner seems so obvious. Because they got horses. They both have horses to have horses at brain. I've never seen would royalty have horses cowboys not having come on. Fox's while i'm pretty sure actually oh. They don't really bring domesticated horses. Didn't they bring domesticated horses when they came over to america like we have wild horses here but there were different than like those kind aren't they. I mean if wild horses means we naturally have horses here but like a different kind like the kind that we ride type like those are in various specific grid. We we from the wild horses see. Here's the thing markets. Someone said that you said in the that you're saying it's hard just to get my head so i could spiral so i can get it but this person also sabotage me and the last question so i don't know if i could trust anybody up in here. I don't trust you show and unless you're subscribed to patriot dot com slash. Now try this cast. I don't trust you. Audience spiraling spiraling so hard because it sounds so natural. She that girl over there she got some poor sense. It sounds taxes. It sounds like north carolina is sounds like limits. The sippy sounds so southern on all those places she. I feel like i read that in gone with the wind when we did on the podcast shot. If you wanna hear gone with the wind episode with special guest go check it out naturally this gas. Nick what is your answer so there has to be southern. I can't british and it just sounds rate in southern final. Answer yes you're right. You did it nick. Got five correct. I have heart palpitations. My heart hurts. Nikki got that was good. That was good. Let's five points. I got half right. You know what she has. Four sense means. She knows which way is north. I don't fuck it means. She's smart the horses smart as shit. This make sense to me because you were this to someone they have. Horses sounds offensive. Last sense the me that girl. She's got horse sense. I would like oh. She's an idiot. She slides because rice has a horse. Face you would be like. Oh she's ugly but the valley of the horses highly over there so we've talked a lot about last but one thing that like i want really hit and i really want to get into and you alluded to it is. This guy is nice guy number one. Primo four degrees at chess. Nice guy moves marcus. Then he fucking calls home to his kid wyatt and yeah i har- her so much. In that moment episode it was it was right at the end of the press episode right. Yeah so just for context sitting there he calls a sonnet excited and he's talking and you're like always have to go back home to do this thing and he's talking about like you talked to a son. His sounds like he's like busy jojo. So put your mom on. And then he's like being nice. He's very normal. Lhasa says and then he says. I am giving you a space. That's why i'm here. And you're like oh. And then he says a little later. I love you and then there's like a long pause and then he just says quietly you say no. I don't worry about it and it's like oh. Yeah who is like amazing. Perfect guy is is is having a hard time in his marriage and he has people against him and he also later on. You find out more about him and it's it's so even though there are heart warming moments there's definitely also heartbreaking moments. Like you know for him so much because he's such a nice guy you want the best for him and he wins. He's works on winning everyone over throughout the course of the season whether or not he wins over run over you have to watch to find out but it is so interesting to see the work that they put into making both like being feel both things from your both happy and excited and also you just feel so much like a sadness for what he's going through and why you find out why he decided to take this job even though it was courtesy you wasn't just like a goofy guy looking for a good time. There is a reason that he took this the Just to get deeply personal. Very recently. I was talking a girl and i let her know that what we're describing that is happening head. Here is one of my deepest relation ears you know so markets you know my past there. There have been people that have broken up with me with the rationale. That like i'm too nice. And i'm to go and internally that means i've clocked things about is i mean a foreing. Tonight's music i'm predictable should be inner i. I don't know what that means and you and you internalize all that you know so so one of my biggest fears in a relationship is that like i can do everything right and it still would it be you know so when he was on the phone and he was saying that sir i i it hit it. Hit hard as i get it i. I've been there. That's that's the truth of relationships like you can do too much. I mean not too much but you could do everything within your power to try to make it work and it just doesn't. Sometimes you just do different people. Sometimes like it happens. It's heartbreaking because when something wrong happens when it's someone cheats are is just an asshole. Whatever like i got rid of them like i'm happy. I'm happier without them. This is the reason that it's over but sometimes they're just like isn't really reason am i. Don't wanna put you on the spot. You're obviously one of the best people. I know in the world and with through eight year relationship where you were wonderful and you could get work you know like i like not myself but i'm a pretty good guy but like the fact that i haven't been able to find someone to give that to man. That's that's that should hits when you're like like and not. A lot of attention is drawn to this in movies and cinema and tv. 'cause it's because there's no because usually were relegated aside characters and were frumpy dude like doug doesn't get the girl in the movie you know nice guys finish last. It's but you're you're bordering on arm. Such a nice guy. I'm screen and scared going back and forth.

Kindness and ted lasso fucking does that like he and it's not like such an obscene degree that it's ridiculous or like is played for laughs.

Yeah and what a fucking cheyniss way to get out there that this is just a genuine. How name another thing. That just has a genuine guy as the fucking star the whole goddamn and he's so good. I think it's something else you win yet. We have something genuine. It's because the actor because of something happened like they. The actor comes across through the character like it's very genuine thing but like for the character to be so fucking sincere so likable. So good it. Just it's it's so fucking heart warming and it makes you wanna be like that. I i saw ted last zone. I'm like this is the man i wanna be. I wanted to lead with kindness. Like you said it's so hard to find shows where you know like like house right. House is one of my favorite shows growing up. I've watched all the seasons multiple times love. Hillary would want to be more. Like hugh laurie like in life in high school when i was watching it. But he's such a flawed character right. He's he's literally did to the drugs. He's literally asshole. But there's one aspect of him that i'm like. Oh let me. I like that part of him. Ten lasso is what was that is is breeding dogs. What just happened. What guys like search like an animal just looked like a fucking in fucking zany presented horses. That goes out from the ceiling. Fucking about the tech markets fell off the wall. Jesus christ a fell off the wall. That was scary when it felt it looked furry. I was freaking out. Gosh a heart attack. You'd expect jump scared on the podcast. No gosh anyway. He's really endearing. And i like it and i want to be like no. It's such a good thing and it's not that he's just like it's not this perfectly happy. Go lucky showed. There are people actively working against him to try to make him bail on the characters. The boss of the entire premier league team relatives honor wilton or whatever and she's trying to actively make him fail because he wants to get revenge on her ex husband who was the former owner of the team. Obviously at a reasonable. I don't i don't feel for her. Now gosh so but so many like so many things that does i. I just wanted to point some of them out and talk about this because they're so amazing. There are things that i i would want to do. But for whatever reason. I wouldn't actually do because as time consuming are it's harmful to me right so At the beginning you see him. Try to get closer to his boss like biscuits with the boss and brings her cookies. They're delicious and she's obsessed. She's trying to find where they are. And then the second and third episode or something you see that he makes them every day yet aches these cookies her her country's style these biscuits the way she likes them. Just 'cause this is a nice thing to do wild. And then and then later when he is being interviewed by the reporter guy and the chauffeur guy comes back and he goes to his family's restaurant and the guys like you sure you can handle that spicy. I've never had indian food. I'm sure it's not that bad. And he's fucking almost dying with how hot it is but he's eating his and the other guys to make sure not to insult the shofar guy is dead. Who made the food. Have you ever gone to a restaurant. And said i'll have with a chef recommends. What a baller asked. Nice person moves amazing. Yeah that's a big balls nice i. I'm a nice person. Marcus but my balls are small compared to ten. I have no blouse. ted lassos. Balls of kindness are eaten nor mus. I cannot understand fathom the the amount of kindness that are stored within those testicles. It is it takes such class as such to be that goes much class have you. Can you put your spot. I don't know if you could only But can you think of the nicest thing you've ever done off top your head. Oh god honestly you know what nick feel track. Those things okay. I just don't keep of those things i do. I don't do kindness for something in return. Sure i won the kite games. Okay short everybody. You nick I don't know. I feel like any kind thing i can think of like ends with like a sad story. Remember remember when i had a girlfriend and and she's supposed to move in with me and she had she had insecurity because a lot of her friends growing up like didn't get her birthday gifts so is throwing her surprise party at a new apartment and i bought a gift Dump the number of guests to the number of people that were going to come to the party. So that every single person and i was gonna wrap them all and every single person was getting. Give her a gift. I this is a pretty nice thing. That's pretty nice. She broke up with me before the party. And i had to find something else to do with all those like twenty gifts so lonely soon. A it's the guy she cheated on me way so it's all good So so it's okay if it's okay if they get married it's fine if they get married you're like you know what let let it be but but the of last was probably my like number one favorite thing up showing some things that you like about the show. I like that moment. When he wins someone over. I feel like kindness. But i like he. There's a line in the beginning that he's like oh that guy's pretty angry and he says wait. Wait till you see. How angry is when we win over there because usually when someone's this nice almost always what do they also naive right. They're nice to a fault. But you see ted lasso doing moves that wile ultimately is the right thing to do in the nice thing. It's still a hard thing to do for example when he sees when Sorry when when. Roy is watching nathan. Get bullied by a a two other guys jamie and his goons. Yeah he goes up to ten is like aren't you gonna puck and do something. And he's like no and then it gives them some endearing story about butterfinger poop very funny. But here's the thing. The nice thing to do would be the first level of mice would be to help and to tell them to stop picking nathan the next fucking level that bucket ted. Lhasa was on like no. I need to do it in fucking in the way he like. He's away his coach. Looks like you're gonna work because like yeah. It's going to be exactly what we need. And it's like yeah like you say bahrain kindness nice. He's more kindness. That is crazy. I can't think of anybody that's nice and smart. It's always naive in almost everything. Nick do you watch a lot of british television. I feel like we talked about this a little bit last time. But you like when you're xs made you.

"About ten so so okay. So we're this show is on apple. Tv who's who can just honestly. I haven't talked to anybody that just has apple tv plus in just watch it so strange. I feel like before even say the show. I feel like so many more people would be talking about this on. That likes right. This was just on netflix. It'd be fucking reeling. Winning winning awards and shin getting praise. Yeah for seasons but Anyway walked me through. Why why did you. Why did you give me. Why did you give me at ted lasso. marcus. I mentioned it earlier but the short version of it is that i watched it. I needed something good. That was going to be cheerful. And like fucking not. Make me think about this block party and probably so much fucking joy that i was like don enough people were talking about this. I don't know anybody else's washing this only piano watching it are the people that like darren. I have gone out and been like watch this show face. It's gonna watch it. Well here's the thing. So we d three episodes who is three episodes. It's hard to tamper down my feelings because as soon as it starts what a. What a premise. Like you said it was. Based on the promos he did for the premiere earlier. Whatever it's it's such a simple. This feels. Like if i went to the magnet theater and went to a sketch thing and there was an old pro sketch writer there. And they're like yeah you know American football player went to teach a british football. It's such as easy joke. Yes it's so simple and easy and that's the whole that's the whole thing that's the whole thing and i it's it's dumping how something so simple can bring so much joy it's so crazy. Yeah the the fact that the premise is like. Hey american football coach that teaches football. A football coach teaches football across the pond. And like that's such a simple thing and that's the premise of the show. But it's not even the joke of the show like within the first couple of like it comes up and it's a recurring theme but it's not like any. It's not like the premise. It's not like the whole thing that the show is weighed upon. It does not something that they don't move on from that one joke. The show is a full ass. Fucking show it. There's so much going on even in the first episode. So much fucking shit happens and happens. It's such like a quick pace that it just feels longer than the thirty minutes. Say it is. Or i think you just hit on something where where y why feel so strongly about the show. I find myself laughing but it. This is not a joke. It's not like. I don't know if it's like i understand why it's categorizes comedy. I know jason. This is a funny guy. There are laugh out loud moments but like nothing is played for jokes and all everything is so sincere. That i was trying to explain it to somebody else and i was like you know how the offense is like super endearing like there's just moments when you're like and feeling for kevin and fucking feeling for all mindy sailing and fucking feeling for these characters take away how stupid outrage saw. The characters are but keep that nugget and that's totally feel. That's underneath this. Where i find myself rooting for ted lasts. I find myself rooting or the growth of the team members on the team. I find myself rooting. Or hopefully the turn of rebecca welton to come to the other side you know as now actually. It's funny because i say it's not relaxed. But she's like well she is. She is a little like she is playing. Like a mega Maniacal like super show but it works. Because i think everything. Everything else is so endearing. Yeah now it's really really good. I feel like we just got a comment on twitter. Saying sounds like someone forgot to bury the lead. You're right we usually do a little bit of like. Oh maybe i liked it. Maybe i did it. But i can love this show and i just wanna bug a good good good also like there's so many actors that i haven't ever seen in anything and they haven't tried to look at some of their imdb pages and seeing like what else they were in because some of them are interesting team. Juno temple but everyone else. I don't think i've seen anything else. Yeah i but they're all great in the all brings to the table. I feel like you've only watched the first three episodes but here so much. Good shit. there's just like good characters coming out the acid this show good moments. They know how to make a good sport show but also a good comedy and it's so hard to balance those kinds of genres like who doesn't give two shits about the sports part of it but merely off book you don't like sports rama's and like sports movies and stuff. I give me one more week as a finance bruin. I love sports pursuing my god. That's funny because i don't i i also don't like sports almost at all. I got marcus. I still don't know who won the super bowl. Who won the super bowl. Whatever team tom brady was oh tampa bay one tampa bay. Was it the kansas city chiefs. Who was their whole lot. Yeah it was the chief send tampa. Bay buccaneers tom. Brady's on the books. Tom brown one point. Pruitt point prove it one tampa bay buccaneers needed more that we word sports people. That was it but sports story because someone in the chat. Br called you out. We were actually invited on a fantasy premier league team years ago. Now you and. I both participated in not knowing jack shit about soccer or anti fake and really. No one of us came in second place and it was hilarious. We did good. I put that. That's what i'm talking about like. I don't like sports. But i liked that and like four one friend's bachelor party. It was at a baseball game. And you and me are sitting there in the book and mets game of from real fans real fans and we were having the time of our lives like oh. I love that pitcher guy. He looks real nice. Oh i love come on. You got this. Yeah which is why. I love zerorez movies. I love sports shows and sports movies. Love them fucking. Gimme remember the titans any day of the week. Me watch you on repeat. Do you not like sports talk. I don not a big fish. Sports of sports stuff even fake sport. Thank you. I'm going to change you because this is right. Here is my favorite sports movie. Alright team we've been down before. And i'm not gonna lie to you. It looks like we might lose again but remember marcus at the beginning of this softspoken. Not a fan of anything in believe in love. Look at him now after this now. Try this team. He's he's turned the corner look around. We're not a team anymore or family so we might lose. Yeah you know what we're going do. We're going to go out there do together. You know why because we are now. Try this. try this now. try this try. Try to go win that. I'm why i love sports movies. Come on yeah. Yeah that's fair i am. The show leans fucking work. It does it does okay so okay so one thing that i want to talk about like a lot. Is ted lasso. Like as a person right. So here's this. Kansas city kid who is famous for getting this division two team to the playoffs and never what they're in for this viral dancing video and like right away the dance video. You can tell us like. Oh he's close with his teammates. And i asked the accent and everything started but jesus lanes fucking in and with that kansas city accident and is really fucking.

You look of anna's totally doesn't remember. That was an accident bro. We weren't allowed to talk to the celebrities like was On the floor you were fucking allowed to interact with so for the next like entire day. I was fucking terrified. Was going to get fired. Because i people saw me say hi like. I knew him and i was like. Oh no i'm gonna fucking get fired. Cool hey man what's up. How are you. that's so cool. Maybe he was so confident that the thought that. Maybe i did know what i'm saying this be a lesson you marcus the next happens. You just need to lead with that. Like who's like jesus davis is in the bodega outside of your work. And your there. You just need to be like. Oh hey how's it going. You just can't be that cool that cool comical.

Then they guilty guilt them into but just gets do you. Are you big fan really. I'm not really huge fan of him. I actually found out that this was a character that he did on a bit for like british for like wherever they show the premier league whatever like british version of espn is probably still espn and bse or some shit. I don't know i. I watched it. Yeah yeah so. The character that i know so long ago decided to jerry into a tv show now super random. I like the guy. I'd have nothing against him.

Jason davis win in his tenure in his tenure at snl he was so okay snl. I have a love hate relationship with us now as most comedians. Fucking do right sometimes. It's sometimes it's awful.

Every time he does like you just get it. You get my comedy. Brain was always that way when he comes in. He's just like i just has such a arab out on that shines through and the so genuine. I love him in sketches. I love him. He has he's like i mean he's done movies stop. He's he's not like bucket. Tom cruise anything like he's not even like so many things that it's like crazy world But like i love like him and colossal and him in. We're the millers and like there's not a lot of them up drinking little things he's been But but here's the thing about today. He's always been And man the the next guy the second guy.

That doesn't die if he he's like almost like a lot of time at the straight man. That's like responding and has like funny quips so when you said ted lhasa fuck this is google like i still don't know what the fuck says And then when i watched the trailer was like wait.

Yeah so i recently got a guy just vail like we did not preempt we. We did not discuss it. I was going to do that. Amazing the segway was amazing. I didn't warn marcus. I was going to do that so i didn't know what was going to have something like a perfect partner. Said yes was prepared and just in case. He needed more time. I am a now so recently. What i decided to get into is is. I've following all the tickets on line. Okay every rich person says what you have to do is invest in the stock market.

I was involved in stock market. I've been investing in cryptocurrency. Obviously not a lot of money. Because i don't have a lot of money but little by little and it's been a wild ride.

Whereas i'd to make a million dollars in five minutes. I can make you ten thousand dollars in two seconds. I'm like okay cool. It's it's fucking go. So then i was actually telling talking to darren.

Oh if you could just type up things that people need typed up you and you can do it you get of money could not sign up for. It didn't work out. It was like kind of a scam. Bullshit and i was like great. Go the first thing trying to scam. I'm i'm tired of this while that's thank you for letting us Lift the veil on this to your free time becoming a finance bro. Honestly if you come in here with the fucking polo shirt and a fucking glass of fucking bourbon than i'll know you've gone too far. I i work in finance. I am finance bro jason. I just don't. I just like anime too. Much and stock enemy is their name stocks. Guys if you know about an anime that is about stocks or finance bros. Go ahead and tweet us a try.

What are we doing here. So this block party has been rough for everybody and content. That's available out.

Gonna bring back my zest for life in our market and great word zach. Just take the orange.

And i was like jason's today kiss cool. Let's try it out. I'm willing to give anything a shot. Party's gone on for too long. So i i'm sorry i'm loving the party. It's really really worries.

While i'm baking at my house through an thanksgiving song that hit like i mean people went nuts for that thing. I was actually really surprised. So i was gonna my manager. Greg was like hey like you should really try to write some original christmas songs and i was like well. I think what people don't understand about christmas music is it's they're used to the song so you don't really remember how good they are. It's really like the greatest hits of the last hundred years of music truly. You'd like i just write another christmas song. It's like the last three songs that were added to the holiday music. Canon gary and then wham and paul mccartney and paul mccartney went on like honestly like various weirdly similar since christmas and so i was just like been a million people. Try to write christmas songs. And even once some that are pretty good and it's just like i it's just tough to exist in that world because the classes are so good and i was like maybe right thanksgiving song so it came out like better than i thought it would and i thought it would just be like. Oh people will maybe like this song. That's great and then as it kinda started to happen like radio. A lot of radio stations played it and like it was like kind of rolling. And i was like what if this could actually become like the thanksgiving song i people reacted to it. More strongly than i thought they would. I thought it'd be a song and everybody was like this song. I was like that's awesome right. I mean apple picked it when it apple that made it. They're like song of the day is amazon amazon. I mean that is no joke. Then it was it was. It was a on the radio. Top ten song crazy. What a so what happens now is not you. Will you sing that when you are on the road next year i thought about that i was like i think in the month of november. I probably could really we did like how after thanksgiving because it went well enough that i think all of us were like wait. This could actually like if we pushed it for a couple more years. It's possible that it would happen every year because a lot of radio people were like we had to make this tradition. And i was like from your lips to god's ears like mass idea. You've had what i'd new can. I'm like a body going to be on my pinky but yes we had a caller just like what could we do to try to make this happen again next year. So i would imagine that. I will play it if i do shows november. That's a good month to do it. But i don't know if i could do it before then but i would love it if it became something any honestly outside of radio or whatever it just became something that people wanted to listen to around thanksgiving that would make. That'd be happy enough with that. I just i had door. It's so this is against unfunny. It's such a kind song. Thank you so much just feels very like friendly and understanding. I wanted it to feel like a like a warm hug. Yes did that. That's why you accomplish. That was the goal. That ain't how it feels. And i i will be interested i. I wonder if it's if it's the ted lasso of music in that you love that people get your face you gasped. Here's the thing in two thousand twenty. Ted lasso is the medicine we needed island. Think that will stay true and twenty twenty one and i think that's true of your song. I'm a big believer. That i think like sincerity is gonna come back because i feel like so much of pop culture in the last little while has kind of been like ironic and like not as much just like heart on your sleeve sincere and i kinda think that especially also with there being not just in two thousand twenty but in general a little bit less like human connection and a lot more like connection online or like digitally in whatever way i kind of think sincerity is gonna feel wonderful for a while. I think that's going to be like the new cool thing. Maybe because it just like so much stuff is a little bit cool and like irony. And whatever and i think that that stuff can be great. I think that some of the stuff that started to connect ted lasso other stuff like that. I think people kind of like yearning for like. Oh yeah just like good stuff connection. How did you decide. What christmas songs on this with. All those options. Yeah i honestly. Half of making the christmas record was just because it sounded fun to like to arrange and seeing some of those songs so a lot of it was just like i was like these songs on the most fun to do and i think the idea is that like my hope with the album is it will over the next however many years add to it at different places and have like other volumes of it. Oh yes so. I think instead of being like i'm gonna wait for years and make another christmas record like literally next year. We might just like do three more songs and do another like a different edition of the vinyl or something. Let so some of it was knowing that i was like. This isn't the only christmas record ever gonna make so there's no pressure but a lot of it honestly was just like these songs. Sound the most saying what a great thing about how music is created industry and twenty twenty. Plus is that you can go. Let's add three more to that. And it just upload to spotify or upload apple or yeah right. Yeah that's brilliant so it can be a thing that continues to grow with under the same umbrella of ben rector christmas. I think we're kind of honestly looking at it like it's like a air quotes brand where it's like you know not. I'm not gonna do it every year but like maybe every other year just kind of being like hey like we're going to do another run of the vinyl in another edition on spotify. That essentially will be apple music and amazon all stuff. That'll be kind of like another edition of this record. Do you want to write more thanksgiving songs or do you feel like that's the one i don't know if i could beat that one. I would love honestly to right. We joked about like oh. She just released as a gag. The thanksgiving song again with just slightly different lyrics every god this president and stay. Whatever i do think Another i think some of that song was a happy accident of like pressure. Just like this is maybe a thing but i think as soon as it was like cool do that again. It's like i don't know if i could. I would love to write. I'd love to try to write original christmas songs. Or maybe like a new year song or whatever. But
