A Pod of Their Own, Episode 28: The Search for the Next Great Mickey Callaway

This week we bid farewell to the Mickey Callaway Era, take the Braves to task for the openly-racist Chop, and talk about how the postseason is still marred by domestic violence

Welcome back to A Pod of Their Own, a show by the women of Amazin’ Avenue where we talk all things Mets, social justice issues in baseball, and normalize female voices in the sports podcasting space.

When last we spoke, the potential firing of Mickey Callaway was merely a twinkle in our eyes - now we unpack the ins and outs of why he’s gone and who’s looking to fill his shoes.

Next, we unpack the Braves’ half-assed statement on their usage of the Chop during the postseason (and take a little victory lap over their elimination embarrassment).

Then we look at the ways this postseason was shaped by domestic violence and talk about how abusive actions can be addressed outside of a legal context

Finally, we wrap things up with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what’s making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise.
