Ted Lasso is the wholesome reprieve you need right now



Tony Armstrong, former AFL player and sports presenter on ABC News Breakfast, joins The Culture to talk about a show one of the most heartwarming TV shows out right now - ‘Ted Lasso’.

The first season dropped on Apple TV last year, starring Jason Sudeikis as the small-time US football coach, who ends up coaching a UK Premier League soccer team. The show went on to make history, scoring 20 Emmy nominations, the most ever for the first season of a comedy.

We’re about halfway through the second season now, so Osman and Tony came together to chat about how ‘Ted Lasso’ is much, much more than just a comedy about sports.
