    A Pod of Their Own, Episode 49: A conversation with Bradford William Davis, Part 1

    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 welcome the Daily News’s Bradford William Davis to the show and he discusses his piece on the small businesses around Yankee Stadium and this pandemic’s far-reaching consequences. 
    Next, we talk about the latest proposal to cut players’ salaries and whether or not the return of baseball is what the country needs right now.
    Next week, we will air the second half of our conversation with Bradford, featuring a discussion about where we envision baseball going moving forward and Noah Syndergaard’s very public battle with his landlord.
    Next week’s episode will also finish with Walk-off Wins, where each of us talks about what’s making us happy this week, baseball-related or otherwise.

    UnforMETable, Episode 37: Greg Goossen

    UnforMETable, Episode 37: Greg Goossen

    Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin’ Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past.
    When the Mets acquired Greg Goossen from the Dodgers organization for $8,000 prior to the 1965 season, the young catcher with power potential quickly became one of the more promising prospects in the young organization.
    Goossen never lived up to his potential with the Mets, though he caught the notice of—and was the subject of memorable anecdotes from—both Yogi Berra and Casey Stengel.
    Afterwards, his most successful season in baseball—in the sole season for the Seattle Pilots—landed him a supporting role in Jim Bouton’s iconic Ball Four, before his post-baseball career led him into the orbit of Gene Hackman, which he parlayed into a lengthy career of minor movie roles.
    As always, you can listen or subscribe to this and all of our wonderful Amazin’ Avenue Audio 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, or listen wherever you get your podcasts.

    From Complex To Queens, Episode 60: Live! From New York! It’s From Complex To Queens!

    Welcome to From Complex to Queens, the podcast from Amazin’ Avenue focusing on the Mets’ minor league system.
    First, celebrating the 120th anniversary of Frank Baum’s Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the team decides what characters they would keep for a baseball team in Promote, Extend, or Trade.
    After, Steve gives us an update on our adopted CPBL team, the Uni-President Lions, and our adopted KBO team, the LG Twins.
    Finally, the team shares a bunch of their favorite minor league memories. We don’t know if there is going to be a minor league season in 2020, and regardless if there is one or not, the minor leagues will look very different in 2021. Rather than waste more time talking about how despicable Rob Manfred and the MLB owners are, they use their time constructively, talking about what a blast the minors are and they will be missed.
    As always, you can listen or subscribe to the podcast 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.

Worst Mets podcast

These podcasts are painful. quality is terrible. Takes are okay, sometimes. And it’s just a really low quality production

Love all of the podcasts

I love all of your podcasts especially a pod of their own. Allison, Maggie, and Linda. They all are knowledgeable about our Mets and love topics they cover.

I love from complex to queens, the minor league podcast for their insight for our minor league system. I have been looking for more in-depth coverage of our minor league and this is great!!

I also love Rob’s UnFormetable podcast about old Mets players which takes me down memory lane. Keep up good work
