A Pod of Their Own, Episode 29: Don’t piss on my head and tell me it’s raining

This week, we discuss the never ending saga that is the Mets’ managerial search and the Astros front office debacle.

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.

This week, we begin by discussing the latest in the Mets’ managerial search—the remaining candidates and the apparent lack of an overall organizational philosophy guiding the Mets’ quest for a new manager. (0:45)

Next, we cover the Brandon Taubman incident, the PR disaster that followed, and the persistent cultural problems that permeate the entire league. (31:32)

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. (1:10:38)
