‘Amazin’ But True’ Mets Podcast – NY Post

Posted on April 17, 2020


‘Amazin’ But True’ – New York Post Mets Podcast (March 2020-present)

In March, we launched our New York Mets podcast with the New York Post. I’ve had the pleasure of co-hosting the show with former Mets pitcher and Emmy-Award winning analyst Nelson Figueroa. Me and Figgie have spoke in past years and have tremendous chemistry. We debuted the show on March 9th, 2020, days before the pandemic began and the sports world was shut down. After six episodes, we went on a hiatus for a few months, but returned in July, dropping two episodes a week for the whole season. Check out all the incredible guests, episodes and rants below. We will be doing offseason shows anytime big Mets news hits.
