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 the show with a discussion of how bizarrely the Mets have handled
their injured ace - the more things change, the more they stay the same. And on that note, the Mets also seem uninterested in the fact that Gio Gonzalez is there for the taking. (0:40)
Next, we tackle the issue of MLB and Rob Manfred’s fan-unfriendly approach to media: mysterious blackout zones, severe limitations on the sharing of MiLB videos, and an increasingly-backwards approach to their own collection of highlights. (23:40)
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. (44:01)
