A Pod of Their Own, Episode 167: At least there’s Seaver

This week, we (reluctantly) discuss the Pete Alonso-less Mets. We also talk about the effect of climate change on baseball, the recent layoffs at The Athletic, and more.

Welcome back to A Pod of Their Own, an all-women led Home Run Applesauce podcast where we talk all things Mets, social justice issues in baseball, and normalize female voices in the sports podcasting space.

This week, we begin with the Mets, who continue to stink and are now without Pete Alonso to boot. But at least they got a new team dog!

Next, we talk about the effect that the smog caused by the Canada wildfires had on MLB and the effect that climate change will continue to have on sports.

We also discuss the Blue Jays’ bungling of the Anthony Bass situation, a column about the all-female Portland Sea Dogs broadcast team, and the recent layoffs at The Athletic.

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.
