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 welcome Kellyanne Healey, Amazin’ Avenue moderator, and we begin by discussing how the Mets bungled the backup catcher situation and how the baseball might be affecting the pitchers. (1:35)

Next, Kellyanne talks about the book Infinite Baseball by Alva Noë and how philosophy can be applied to the game. You can look for her review and other fabulous books on her Goodreads account. (21:21)

We follow that up with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what’s making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise. (37:30)

Finally, we reminded everyone of the bobblehead giveaway for our awesome listeners. We have a Jacob deGrom Cy Young bobblehead for one lucky listener who leaves us a review on iTunes. Tune in at (43:40) and keep an eye on @apodoftheirown for further details on how to enter.
