A Pod of Their Own, Episode 65: Happy birthday to me, it’s the end of the Wilpon era

This week, we talk about the finalization of the sale of the Mets (and Bill de Blasio), rich people crying poor, and the 2020 World Series.

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 Steve Cohen’s impending approval by MLB owners and how Bill de Blasio is grandstanding over a technicality. We also referenced a piece that appeared in The New Yorker about Cohen’s company’s financial past and talked about Jeff Wilpon’s final Zoom call with his employees.

Next, we have little sympathy for MLB owners crying poor, although ratings of the World Series have been down this season, despite compelling postseason storylines—Randy Arozarena, Clayton Kershaw, a wild Game 4 ending, and more.

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.
