A Pod of Their Own, Episode 106: A conversation with Devin Gordon

This week, we have writer Devin Gordon on the show to talk about the 2021 Mets and his new book “So Many Ways to Lose: The Amazin’ True Story of the New York Mets—The Best Worst Team in Sports.”

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 have Devin Gordon—author of a new book about the Mets and a recent (fantastic) ESPN piece about the 2021 season—on the show to talk about what went wrong with the 2021 Mets, where the Mets go from here with their front office, and his writing process and capturing the unique psychology of Mets fandom.

We wrap up the show this week with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what’s making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise.
