Long ago, the podcasters and actors lived in harmony… But everything changed when the actors attacked!
In episode 4 of “The Podcast About the Podcasts About Television” we delve, for the first time, into a podcast that one of us actually listens to on a semi-regular basis. After last week’s Made Women/Gangster Goddess debacle we need something to help lower our blood pressure, and what could be better for that than a nice, relaxing cartoon? We can hear that this probably sounds like sarcasm but Avatar: The Last Airbender is a fabulous show and the slickly produced and compiled Avatar: Braving the Elements podcast scores high on all the metrics we’ve invented to review these podcasts. But a question lurks in the back of one’s mind… Why are there no advertisements on this show? Could it be because the whole production is part of a multi-year multi-media strategy? And if so, does that dilute it’s potential to touch upon something that is real and honest within the hosts and the listeners? Well, as usual, you’ll need to listen to Jim and Jakob’s expert analysis to find out.
Avatar: Braving the Elements
Enter the amazing world of Avatar through the official companion podcast, Avatar: Braving the Elements from Nickelodeon. Join hosts Janet Varney (the voice of “Korra”) and Dante Basco (the voice of “Prince Zuko”) each week as they re-watch every episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender then break down key themes, notable battles, and behind-the-scenes trivia you can’t get anywhere else. Special guests from cast members to producers join them to explore elements of the Avatarverse, including the origins of the story and how Avatar was brought to life.
