Beat The Press: A Podcast About Pressure In Football

#5 Leo Pearlman (Sunderland ‘Til I Die exec producer) - Part 2 of 2

June 10, 2020

The second part of our discussion with Sunderland 'Til I Die executive producer, Leo Pearlman.

We talk through Sunderland supporters' opinion of Stewart Donald and Charlie Methven, the remarkable relationship between Peter Farrer - taxi driver and arguable star of the series - and River Plate, and answer listeners' questions, with Leo giving his view of the possibility of returning for a third series.

We also run through our top five football documentaries, which you can find via the links in these show notes.
