Joyful

I was drawn to JV club because of Janet's work on the Legend of Korra, but I stayed with the podcast because of Janet. She respectfully interviews the guests--wonderful podcast with wonderful hosts to hang out with!

Too good for words.

What can I say? I was super late coming to the J.V. Club. I found Janet on @midnight found her hilarious, somehow didn’t realise that not only did she have this amazing podcast but she was the voice of Korra?!?!
I’ve been binging as many episodes as I can. Janet has a wonderful interview style, and I always feel like I am right in the room with them. I didn’t even realise that it was interviews exclusively with women until I ran into “The Boys of Summer” sections.
I can’t recommend this podcast enough.
