The Betknowmore Podcast Launch

Matt Smith

Betknowmore UK today launches a 10 episode podcast series produced by 11-29 media and hosted by award winning broadcaster Mark Saggers. Throughout the series we shall explore all areas of the gambling world whilst supporting and signposting individuals who are looking for help. Mark’s lived experience of gambling harm will enable us to gain an inside knowledge into the world of a gambler and help us to uncover in detail the stories of those who have been affected by it, and are involved in making the space safer and using their own experiences to help others. We shall be talking to people within the industry as well as the staff at Betknowmore UK to showcase how we are all working together to minimise gambling harm.

Future episodes will cover women, ethnic minorities, crypto currency and modern gambling, individuals from professional sport and a round table discussion.

In this first episode Mark speaks to former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton and his wife Steph. The couple speak in detail about Peter’s struggles with gambling and how they are now using their experiences to raise awareness and help others.
