A Pod of Their Own, Episode 71: Ron Howard V/O: He was not a nice guy

This week we talk about Jared Porter, Trevor Bauer, and baseball’s culture of misogyny.

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 briefly cover the Mets’ trade for Joey Lucchesi before launching into Jared Porter’s harassment of a female reporter and subsequent firing by the Mets. This prompts a greater discussion of baseball’s toxic culture and how the Mets’ interest in Trevor Bauer makes their words about “integrity” and “zero tolerance” ring hollow.

We also pay tribute to the late Hank Aaron, give an update on our fundraiser, and preview our next show in two weeks, which will be an interview with author Andrea Williams.

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.
