A Pod of Their Own, Episode 143: The Events of Last Weekend

This week on the show, we air our disappointment about the Mets getting swept by the Braves over the weekend and squandering their chances at the division title. But, the Mets are still in the postseason and we’re excited about it.

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 Events of Last Weekend when the Mets were swept by the Braves. We also unpack potential postseason matchups for the Mets and try to maintain hope for a deep postseason run.

Next, we talk about the racist chop being given the national spotlight again and how nauseated we are by it.

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.
