Season 9, Ep 30: The last show of Season 9, recorded on 420 day, on which we decide to let a live audience pile in via the Patreon page to watch the thing get made over video call. Compression session! Neil Manthorp also dials in to update us about the worsening political fight between a few Cricket South Africa holdouts and the national government, as well as the shock of Zimbabwe legend Heath Streak's long corruption ban. Also: Jodie Hawkins gets dudded by Cricket New South Wales, Cricinfo goes gender neutral, and there are hopeful signs about Olympic cricket, an expanded men's World Cup, and women's Tests.
