A Pod of Their Own, Episode 79: We live in a society

This week we talk about the Mets’ first game, the Francisco Lindor extension, vaccine hesitancy, and MLB’s decision to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta.

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, Mets baseball is back! And the Mets’ (delayed) Opening Day game was every bit Mets baseball. We talk about that and the Francisco Lindor extension and how happy we are that he is a Met for the next decade.

We then discuss sentiments of vaccine hesitancy expressed by Mets players.

Next, we talk about MLB’s decision to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta, shouting out Demetrius Bell’s article over at Talking Chop on the matter.

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.
