Welcome back to Amazin’ Avenue Audio, where we’re debuting a brand new show this week from the women of Amazin’ Avenue called A Pod of Their Own, which will run every Wednesday once the regular season begins.
A Pod of Their Own is a show where we talk about all things Mets, but where we also take a look at various baseball issues through a lens of social justice. But more than anything else, this is a show that aims to normalize female voices in the sports podcasting space.
In our debut episode, we begin by discussing the conspicuous absence of a Jacob deGrom extension. (1:20)
We then tie this into the larger labor issues in baseball surrounding extensions, service time manipulation, and free agency. (19:39)
Next, we introduce a segment we’re calling Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what’s making us happy this week and what we can’t stop thinking about, baseball-related or otherwise. (29:00)
Finally, we wrap things up with a very special giveaway for our listeners to celebrate the launch of the new show! (42:15)
