A Pod of Their Own, Episode 93: How about ESPNo

This week, we celebrate Pete Alonso, discuss our first half musings, and air some rage about Stephen A. Smith and Trevor Bauer.

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 celebrating Pete Alonso’s second straight Home Run Derby victory. We also give Taijuan Walker much-deserved kudos for being named as a National League All-Star and get hyped about Kumar Rocker.

We also have a general discussion about the All-Star Game, how cool Shohei Ohtani is, and how wrong Stephen A. Smith is about him.

Next, we talk about the latest on the investigation into allegations of sexual assault against Trevor Bauer and not letting the Dodgers simply wash their hands of him without being held to account.

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.
