The Human Risk Podcast

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.If you like this episode, do also check out other episodes featuring Raphael Honigstein:Honigstein Pod https://www.podpage.com/the-human-risk-podcast/raphael-honigstein-on-the-psychology-of-football/Ben Cohen on the Hot Hand https://www.podpage.com/the-human-risk-podcast/ben-cohen-on-the-hot-hand/In our discussion we talk about the German “50+1”Rule that restricts ownership of clubs.

Ranking A Commentator's Life with Derek Rae

Ranks FC

There's a familiar voice in the Ranks FC studio this week, and not because it's a returning guest, but because it's the Voice of FIFA, Bundesliga Broadcast Behemoth, and one of the finest commentators to ever grace the microphone, Mr. Derek Rae, who joins the Rank Squad to talk all things commentary. We start off with Derek's own background and how he started life behind the mic, before taking a waltz through five pillars of his glittering commentary career: Preparation, Pronunciation, FIFA, Clichés and Experiences - to get the complete package of just what makes the great man tick when he's in the booth.
