Longtime listeners to Podjiba (a podcast about television, and no other topics!) are well aware that Dustin and I are fans of Ted Lasso. Between our shared love for Bill Lawrence shows (and, in Dustin’s case, podcasts about Bill Lawrence shows), sports, and comedy, this show could not have been engineered to be more for us (unless, perhaps, they had found a role for Michael Ealy’s eyes).
