This week, we cover everything from the Wilpons Wilponing to the Super Bowl.

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 Wilpons outdoing themselves and torpedoing another potential sale of the team. (0:59)

Next, we talk about a mish mash of topics that we felt were all worthy of discussion. First was death of Kobe Bryant, the complicated legacy he leaves behind, the press coverage, and the rush to be first instead of accurate. We then move on to Kris Bryant losing his grievance against service time manipulation and what the ramifications could be of that decision. We next discuss the Super Bowl and end with several Mets taking a stand against domestic violence. (29:09)

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. (57:58)
