    “Bryan and I continue dissecting The Storm and go deep into the pacing, editing, cultural influences that is reflected in the Air Nomad culture. Definitely one of the most memorable episodes from the series, you don’t want to miss it.”

    ft. Collin Henderson from The Legend of Portalcast

    Collin and I geek out about everything: meeting celebrities, an all Asian cast, Mulan, and Wong Kar Wai. Do people even read descriptions even more? I’m curious…but if you haven’t already, go check out our wonderful interview with Michaela Murphy and Olivia Hack before listening to this episode where Collin and I unpack the news about what to expect in Netflix’s live-adaption Avatar: The Last Airbender.

    Interview with Michaela Murphy a.k.a. Jessie Flower (Toph) and Olivia Hack (Ty Lee)

    Interview with Michaela Murphy a.k.a. Jessie Flower (Toph) and Olivia Hack (Ty Lee)

    Eddy and I had the honor of meeting Michaela Murphy (aka Jessie Flowers) [voice of Toph] and Olivia Hack [voice of Ty Lee] at Anime Expo on July 7th, 2019. I had messaged Michaela earlier and asked ahead of time if I could interview her for Beyond Bending Podcast and she said yes. I was ecstatic. It’s not everyday you get to meet one of your idols, let alone interview them. I have never made an Instagram post so fast in my life. I shared the news with our fans and asked them what questions they would want to ask Michaela, or TOPH BEIFONG. Leading up to Anime Expo, I was trying not to think too much of it. “They’re just regular people…” I told myself over and over. But like many other die hard fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender, this was a show that changed my life in so many ways and has shaped me into who I am today...Who am I kidding? These “regular people” that I was about to meet were my idols. My adolescent self was freaking out but Podcast Marilyn kept me calm. Finally the day came. We drove to L.A., paid a ridiculous $35 for parking in front of the convention, and wandered around Anime Expo until it was time to meet them.

    Ft. Dwight Colón & Interview with Henry Liao

    “Eddy and I had the honor of meeting and interviewing Henry Liao (@artbyhenry_), a freelancer that drew the Avatar thumbnail for the Nickelodeon website! As crowded as it was at Wondercon, I was so happy that Henry took the time out of his day to chat with us and also do an interview where we asked him what the process was like working with Nickelodeon and Avatar. Check out out latest episode for Henry’s interview!“

    “I am so glad I did this episode with Dwight. What turned out to be our least favorite episode turned out to be one of the most thought provoking episodes to date. If you think this is just a filler episode, think again!”
