Fútbol with Grant Wahl

Nov 30, 2020

Grant geeks out with Jason Sudeikis and Brendan Hunt (at 9:50), who star in the brilliant show Ted Lasso on Apple TV+. They discuss the virtues of Midwestern kindness; the challenge of developing characters from Ted Lasso's origins as a short comedy sketch; the risk that comes with the show's ambitions; Brendan's history of living in Amsterdam and meeting John O'Brien; the anticipation for Seasons 2 and 3 (which have already been green-lit); the real-life coaching inspirations for the Ted Lasso character; and much, much more.

Before that, Grant honors the genius of Diego Armando Maradona, who passed away at age 60 last week.
