    "The Cave of Two Lovers" with Jack DeSena

    "The Cave of Two Lovers" with Jack DeSena

    How could we cover this iconic episode without bringing back a buddy like Jack De Sena? Janet and Dante welcome Jack back to the podcast for this dive into the Secret Tunnels near Omashu, where music fills the air and love leads the way. Celebrate the fabulous voice work by the dynamic guest cast in Episode Two of Book Two of ATLA, including Dee Bradley Baker’s turn as troubadour Chong and his rendition of one of the most famous songs ever to hit animation! Will Jack, Dante and Janet be able to meet the standard? Can they carry a tune? Or even stay in sync? It’s a good thing Team Avatar isn’t depending on them doing so in order to get to Omashu!

Grey talks about her experience recording her part in the epic series, along with the process of discovering how beloved the show was after the fact.

    "The Avatar State"

    "The Avatar State"

    Team Avatar has a rough time of it in this first episode of Book Two, and Janet and Dante are feeling it! While Aang, Katara and Sokka (and, of course, Appa and Momo!) try to navigate a relationship with a very zealous Earth Kingdom General, Dante has to emotionally process the reality that before Zuko gets to enjoy the demise of Zhao, he’s confronted with his fierce and intimidating sister, Azula! Can Dante and Janet reconcile their fear of Azula with their total love of Grey DeLisle? Will she ever appear on Braving the Elements? And will Aang agree to forgo the rest of his training to face Ozai?

I love dis

I love this pod I lit cried when I found this because I missed this series. Me and my friends made up the Gaang, where we roleplay in the Avatarverse. I am a plant bender/lightning bender/water bender/blood bender. I and 2 of my friends are Shadow Children, which means that the Time King (the villain) imprisons us because we are so powerful. The reign of the avatars is over, because sadly some avatar messed up royally and got killed in the Avatar State. So it is up to us to kill the Time King and free the Shadow Children. So yeah, everyone in the Gaang are big Avatar nerds. Anyway, before I bore you to death, I’ll just go. PEACE! ✌️P.S oh Allan Zeiber I agree with you i just forgot to say that but it would be too long if i did. Ok bye again!

New Favorite Podcast

I love this podcast so much. It’s awesome to hear Janet and Dante have such in-depth conversations about Avatar - you can really tell they sincerely love the series and how proud they are to have been a part of ATLA and Korra. I love hearing their perspective as they analyze each episode and the overall themes/plot of the show. Janet is a great interviewer and Dante never fails to make me laugh.
Their guests bring so much more background information and rich insight with them as well. I find it really interesting to hear more about the creation of the Avatar universe and the process of working on an animated show. The episode with Dee Bradley Baker blew my mind!
I highly recommend this pod to anyone who has seen both ATLA and Korra (they do their best but you will get some spoilers if you haven’t seen everything yet.)

Wonderful

It’s so amazing to hear the origin stories of this timeless show that will always have a special place in everyone’s hearts. I’m so happy they had Grey DeLisle on the show. It was awesome to have the show’s creators on there and I’m so excited to have episodes on Legend of Korra. I can’t get enough of this podcast. I’d give this an infinite number of stars if I could.
