What can football teach us about human decision-making? That’s what ESPN commentator and expert on the German Bundesliga Derek Rae, helps me to explore on this episode.

Even if you’re not a sports fan, what Derek has to share are some fascinating insights into how we see the world. Given his job involves observing other people doing theirs, he has an invaluable perspective on human decision-making.

In our wide ranging discussion, we explore also how Derek, a Scotsman, became a fan of the German Bundesliga and why he is still so passionate about it. The answers are highly relevant to recent news concerning the proposal to develop European Super League. That which was announced after we recorded this episode, but we address many of the issues that led to the German Clubs not participating.

What you’ll hear on this episode are the thoughts of a highly engaging expert in his field with fascinating insights to share.
