A Pod of Their Own, Episode 176: My job is macro

This week on the show, we talk about the Mets having a good week for a change and how hilarious it would be if they somehow stumble ass backwards into the playoffs after all.

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 by discussing the Mets, dare we say it, actually playing well over the past week. We also chat about the Pete Alonso ball toss “controversy.”

Next, we cover the small nuggets of information we are learning about the investigation into Wander Franco, none of which are good. We also discuss the latest word salad from Orioles owner John Angelos and wonder why that man is ever allowed to speak to the media.

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.
