Maurice Duffy on Steve Smith
Season 7, Ep 8: After handing down Steve Smith's ban, Cricket Australia took the unusual step of linking the player with Maurice Duffy, an Irish academic who describes his job as a 'mindset coach'. The pair worked together throughout that year and through Smith's remarkable Ashes series that followed. We caught up with Maurice to talk about how the relationship. Also, our comprehensive Women's Big Bash wrap, a look at bans for James Pattinson and Em Smith, and a brief flirtation with Nerd Pledge.

Rob Smith versus Rob Smyth
Season 7, Ep 7: The Australian Test squad is announced, and we have all the wash-up from that announcement and the week in cricket, plus Adam's adventures with lime milk in Tasmania and the time Geoff crashed their car. Then: when you have the same name as your subject, it must make empathy easy. During Robin Smith's career the England batsman was famed for his bravery against fast bowling. After it, he found himself on the verge of jumping off a building. Rob Smyth has helped write Smith's story, and is our Final Word guest this episode.

Shaun Marsh is coming home
Season 7, Ep 6: What's that November sound? Snow in Hobart, Nat Fyfe at the beach, and the the pitter patter of early-season Marsh runs. "He's coming, he's coming, Shaun is coming home." What else happened this week? Pakistan crashed and burned against Australia in the T20s. Board appointments at Cricket Australia. England fell over against New Zealand, before another game with another super over. So many things that the episode went way too long and we've moved our interview segment back an episode. Oh, and Nerd Pledge. An excellent suite of numbers. And personalised football cards, and we need some merch ideas from you.

Cricket and climate change, with Tanya Aldred
Season 7, Ep 4: As climate strikes increase around the world and the effects of climate change bite more deeply, cricket as a sport is yet to address the issue. But cricket is one of the most vulnerable sports in the face of droughts and storms and rising sea levels, and countries like Australia, South Africa, and those in the subcontinent and Caribbean will be some of the worst affected. Tanya Aldred, founder of the Next Test, joins the Final Word to talk about cricket's contribution to the problem and its response to the crisis. Plus Shaun Marsh made a double hundred for Western Australia. We can't forget that.
