Flushing Is Burning, Episode 8: Fangirling over Francisco

We gush over Francisco Álvarez’s heroic week and examine the culture war’s new Target

Flushing is Burning Logo

Welcome to Flushing is Burning, the latest addition to the Home Run Applesauce family of podcasts, hosted by Grace Carbone and Christian Romo. Flushing is Burning is a weekly podcast examining the Mets, queer issues, and the occasional intersection of the two.

This week, Grace and Christian spend way too much time talking about how well Francisco Álvarez has played and examine a tough June schedule, wondering if the Mets can continue playing up to their competition.

They also investigate the continued Pride Night fiasco in Los Angeles, a new target in the culture war, and a strange stadium rendering in Las Vegas. Are the A’s really going to move?

As always, you can listen or subscribe to all of our Home Run Applesauce podcasts through Apple Podcasts, where we encourage you to leave a review if you enjoy the show. It really helps! And you can find us on the Stitcher app, Spotify, or listen wherever you get podcasts.
