A Pod of Their Own, Episode 142: Playoffs?!

This week, we discuss the construction of the Mets’ postseason roster, since that’s something we can talk about now.

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 state of the Mets heading into this weekend’s pivotal (and likely division-deciding) series against the Braves—that is, if the games don’t get washed out by the impending hurricane.

Next, we talk about who might make the Mets’ playoff roster and who might not.

We also talk about how much fun baseball history we are witnessing all around the game right now from Pete Alonso setting the franchise RBI record to Albert Pujols’ 700th career home run to Aaron Judge’s pursuit for 62.

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.
