This week, we are amped about the Mets’ hot streak and we chat with baseball writer Jen Mac Ramos about women’s baseball, prospects, and more

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 wax poetic about the Amazin’ Mets tearing their way through the Wild Card standings, talk about what else they need to do to improve, and mull over why the trade deadline was so generally dreary. (1:02)

Next, we have a special guest - Jen Mac Ramos of Baseball Prospectus. We talk about their fantastic new database of Women’s Baseball World Cup statistics and what it means for women’s baseball, life as a baseball writer and researcher, and what they thought of the trade deadline. (34:48)

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. (55:55)
