Ted Lasso with Jason Plotkin

Hooray!! We talk the inescapable new classic TV dramedy "Ted Lasso" with our guest, photojournalist and storyteller Jason Plotkin. We think that this is a show that lived up to the hype, and we hope that you like this discussion about this beautiful, funny, sad, insightful, delightful show.

Jason's parents sent him to this planet when that world was set to explode. A lone survivor striving to find his place in this world, Jason often finds himself leaching onto more talented people in the hopes that symbiosis will kick in and he may attain some of their abilities. That's what led him to Leslie and Lynne and Fine Beats and Cheeses. (He won't tell you this, but he is also an award-winning documentary film maker. He is currently a photographer for the Penn State Health system, where he documents the work and loves of the medical providers as well as the patients).
