Marcus Stead

Hello, and welcome to my website.

I am a journalist, author and broadcaster, working mainly in political journalism and sport.

During my early career, I wrote biographies on leading jockey Frankie Dettori, former Ireland and Lions rugby captain Brian O’Driscoll, and former England cricket captain Kevin Pietersen.

I currently cover snooker extensively and I’ve written the ‘Round the World’ results pages in Snooker Scene magazine every month since June 2011.

I also broadcast regularly, and have presented numerous features on snooker, darts and American Football for TV, as well has having worked as a snooker commentator.

In addition, I contribute to a number of radio stations covering sport including Talk Sport, BBC Radio 5 Live and Swansea Sound.

In November 2017, I founded Talk Podcasts, a service providing speech-based podcasts on a wide range of subjects, from politics to meditation. I manage the service on a day-to-day basis and also present the weekly Twenty Minute Topic podcast.

I appear as a political analyst on a number of media outlets. My work has appeared in the magazine Spiked, and I make frequent appearances on a number of radio stations to discuss political matters, including Radio Sputnik and Talk Radio, as well as TV stations  Russia 1 and EKOTÜRK.

My other work includes consumer journalism, features on property management and obituary writing.
