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 Mets’ hot start, and working out some lingering trauma from the 2018 disaster. (1:25)

Next, we each pick “our guy” for 2019 - an undersung Met we love to watch and think will make a big splash. (13:03)

And we discuss the incredible article from Newsday about Suzyn Waldman, the harassment she experienced as the first female radio commentator, and how much further we still need to go. It’s a must-read for all sports fans. (23:00)

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. (37:30)
