Jay Bushman and Will Stegemann both grew up in New York and have been ardent Mets fans since childhood. Now they live on the other side of the country, but still retain a deep love of their team and the stories that surround it. Every other week, Jay and Will explore what it means to be a Mets fan: the dizzying heights, the crushing depths, and the deeply weird middles.

this is a fun podcast from two longtime Mets fans. The Mets aren't even my team, and I still enjoy tuning in to hear their stories
