A Pod of Their Own, Episode 87: No June swoon

This week, we discuss the Bench Mob keeping the Mets together as well as athletes and mental health.

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 begin by discussing the ReplaceMets who have done an admirable job filling in while the injuries piled up. We are also impressed by the pitching and defense that has kept this team in ballgames despite the lack of offense.

Next, we talk about Mickey Callaway finally being out of a job and the latest incident of domestic violence committed by a baseball player.

Finally, we talk about athletes and mental health in light of Naomi Osaka having to withdraw from the French Open.

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.
