Geoff Lemon and Adam Collins are The Final Word. The show is your friendly guide to the world’s strangest and loveliest game. Geoff Lemon and Adam Collins combine deep analysis with irreverence and political nous as they follow the game they love around the globe. Their weekly episodes feature in-depth and often surprising interviews with a range of guests.
In 2020, The Final Word’s interview with Marcus Stoinis became one of the show’s most talked about interview.
Also in 2020, The Final Word expanded to a twice weekly format. Story Time is home to The Final Word’s archive and an exploration of the Nerd Pledge Universe.
What is Nerd Pledge? Quite simply, supporters of the show pledge a specific figure on the show’s Patreon. It’s Geoff and Adam’s job to figure out what the figures mean in a cricketing sense.
In 2020, the Wisden Almanack - cricket's bible - recognised The Final Word as the best cricket podcast in the world.
We welcomed CBUS Super as show partner for the entire year. Adam and Geoff found themselves bunkered down in London and Melbourne respectively, and with no cricket to watch because of the Covid19 pandemic, they caught up with the biggest names in cricket from their homes around the world, including this memorable chat with former England Captain Nasser Hussain.
Finally, The Final Word and Bad Producer Productions produced Calling the Shots, a documentary podcast telling the story of a century of cricket commentary.
In 2021, The Final Word has continued to grow with daily episodes for each of the Australia v India Tests and daily episodes for the England v India Test matches.
