The Final Word in Melbourne LIVE

We love nothing better than a good live show, getting an audience together for all of the usual fun and misadventure.

This time in Melbourne we'll be joined by Chris Rogers at the Mission to Seafarers main hall in the central city. Come down for a great bar, drinks beers, and to meet some sailors.

Wednesday November 23rd, tickets are here.


Geoff Lemon & Adam Collins are The Final Word – a pair of cricket writers travelling the world covering the strangest and loveliest game of all. We give cricket the reverence and irreverence it deserves: everything from match analysis to philosophy, deep-dive interviews with interesting people, and always returning to the absurd and entertaining side of the game.

In 2020 The Final Word was called the best cricket podcast in the world in the Wisden Cricketers' Almanack. The podcast has been downloaded almost 5 million times.

Adam Collins_The Final Word

Adam Collins didn't come to this caper the conventional way, earlier advising Australian politicians including a Prime Minister. When they got punted out of office he started following the sun writing and talking about cricket for a living. He likes that much better.
