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 went live on Facebook and started things off with surprising our listeners with Maggie Wiggin’s triumphant return to the podcast! We began the show with a quick chat about the latest Mets rumors and the relatively slow free agent market.
Next, we did another Insomnia Cookies tasting, answering your questions from Facebook between bites.
In the light of the recent discourse surrounding Hall of Fame balloting, we announced another fundraising effort—call it a “mini Dollars4Dingers”—for victims of domestic violence. Anyone who makes a donation in any amount to the National Domestic Violence Hotline or your local women’s shelter/domestic violence charity of choice and sends us your receipt (via Twitter DM to @apodoftheirown or via email to email@example.com) will be entered into a drawing for several pieces of Mets memorabilia. We will do this drawing on an episode of the show in late February when pitchers and catchers report. Let’s get fundraising!
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.
