Guardian Australia has The Final Word on the Ashes
The Guardian Australia teams up with cricket podcast, The Final Word during this year’s Ashes series.
Hosted by Adam Collins, Geoff Lemon and joined by Guardian cricket writer Emma John for a sharp and light-hearted spin on each day’s play.
Released soon after stumps, episodes of The Final Word Ashes Daily will give listeners a lyrical first-person summary of the day from John, who will follow the action through the night from London.
Collins and Lemon will add their take direct from the grounds as they follow the action across Australia.
“We will be at every day of the Ashes by hook or by crook,” said Lemon.
“Nobody knows where some of the Test matches are even going to be, but we will be there. We will find a way to bring listeners reports from the ground each day.”
Since launching in 2015, The Final Word has built a dedicated following, with more than three million downloads in the last three years alone.
It regularly tops cricketing podcast charts and has been dubbed “by the far the best” cricket podcast in the world by The Wisden Almanack.
The Guardian teamed up with The Final Word during the 2017-18 Ashes, while John helmed The Guardian’s much-loved The Spin podcast during the 2019-20 series.
