The Curious Case of Ted Lasso


Our first podcast episode investigates the hit television series Ted Lasso. We discuss the ways in which season one subverts the expected conventions in sports comedies, especially when it comes to masculinity. We also take a critical look at some of the areas where the show misses the mark. Two guests join host Jonathan McIntosh for this conversation: professor of literature and culture Felicia Lopez and writer/filmmaker Imran Siddiquee.
