Craig was able to preview some of season two as well as interview the show's creator Annie Weisman. She provided insights on where we will find our characters as they move throughout season two, and what messages she is hoping to convey to the audience. Next, Craig caught up with actress Dierdre Friel, who plays Greta in the series. She explains how she relates to her character and talks about the onset chemistry between her costars. Catch new episodes of "Physical" on Apple TV+ beginning June 3.
  • Hello all you Lasso fans! We are delighted to bring you this interview with Lasso composer Tom Howe. Tom is a prolific composer having over 90 credits to his name on IMDB. We get a chance to speak to him about his favorite moments in Ted Lasso, as well as how he came to write music for the show. We also dive into his work on The Great British Baking Show and so much more!
  • The final chapter of the Apple TV+ show "Dickinson" premiers this Friday, Nov. 5. We were thrilled to be invited to speak about the show and some with the creator and some of the cast members as they close out this timely and wonderful show. Within this episode you'll hear from Alena Smith about her inspiration for writing a show about Emily Dickinson. You'll also hear Craig's conversation with four of the cast members Adrian Enscoe (Austin Dickinson), Ella Hunt (Sue), Chinaza Uche (Henry) and Amanda Warren (Betty) about their experience on set as well as some of the turns their characters are making in this final chapter. We do try our best to keep this as non-spoiler as possible as we know some of our Apple TV+ listeners may be looking for a new show while we wait for the return of Ted Lasso.
