Episode info:
In our first podcast episode we investigate the hit Apple TV series Ted Lasso. We discuss the ways that season one subverts expected conventions in sports comedies, especially when it comes to race and masculinity. We also take a critical look at some of the areas where the show misses the mark. Two guests join this conversation: professor of literature and culture Felicia Lopez and writer/filmmaker Imran Siddiquee.
