About the panellists
Mark “Sharky” Sharman – Producer, “Tailenders” Podcast
Mark Sharman is an award-winning radio, TV and podcast producer who started broadcasting 25 years ago at Radio City in Liverpool, where he picked up the nickname ’Sharky’ – the exact origins of which are lost in time. He then moved to the BBC where he produced some of the biggest sporting events and OBs – including the Olympic Games, World Athletic Championships, FA Cup Finals, The Grand National, Commonwealth Games and the Premier League. Since leaving the BBC and becoming freelance, he has produced programmes for BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, 2, 4, 5 Live and 6 Music, plus commercial stations like Absolute Radio. He has made documentaries on the careers of U2, The Beatles, David Bowie and The Beach Boys amongst others and has also made three films for BT Sport. Since 2017 he has been the producer of ‘Tailenders’ - the ‘loosely cricket-based podcast’ presented by Radio 1’s Greg James, musician Felix White and the most successful bowler in Test Cricket History, Jimmy Anderson. The podcast is fast approaching its 100th edition and has now transferred to the live stage with sold out shows at theatres in London and Manchester. Mark is a ‘bang average’ cricketer who just about manages to still play village cricket to a poor standard.
