A Pod of Their Own, Episode 72: The worst-kept secret in sports

We didn’t plan on doing a podcast this week. Yet here we are...talking about sexual misconduct again.

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 an emergency pod to talk about the allegations of sexual misconduct made against former Mets manager Mickey Callaway. We discuss Sandy Alderson’s statement, what these incidents reveal about the Mets hiring process and the pervasiveness of this toxicity across the sport, a lack of accountability, and what a bad idea signing Trevor Bauer would be in the aftermath of all of this.

But, as always, 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.

You can listen or subscribe to all of our wonderful Amazin’ Avenue Audio podcasts through Apple Podcasts, where we encourage you to leave a review if you enjoy the show. It really helps! And you can find us on the Stitcher app, Spotify, or listen through the embedded player below.
