A Pod of Their Own, Episode 189: A conversation with Amy Kaufman

This week on the show, we speak with Amy Kaufman about her experience with intimate partner violence, fighting a system stacked against victims, and how Major League Baseball can do better.

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 speak with intimate partner violence survivor Amy Kaufman about her story, a legal system that is stacked against victims, support systems, Major League Baseball’s domestic violence problem, and more.

We wrap things up like we always do with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what’s making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise.
