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

In March 2020, 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. We debuted the show on March 9th, 2020, days before the pandemic began and the sports world was shut down. Check out all our incredible guests, episodes and rants below. All episode articles were written by me.
