A Pod of Their Own, Episode 136: Trade deadline extravaganza

This week, we react to the Mets’ (underwhelming) trade deadline, celebrate Jacob deGrom’s return to the mound, and remember Vin Scully.

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 Mets’ trading deadline, which we found to be too conservative for this moment in the team’s history.

Next, we talk about the trades that happened across baseball and take a moment to acknowledge the death of broadcasting icon Vin Scully.

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.
