Our Editor's Take

The Avatar: Braving the Elements podcast explores Avatar: The Last Airbender (or ATLA). This magical world has delivered action, adventure, and mystery since 2005. The Nickelodeon animated TV show lasted three seasons and still has a devoted following. For the uninitiated, this is a separate world from James Cameron's 2009 film.

In this podcast, hosts Janet Varney and Dante Basco explore the TV series. And they also talk about The Legend of Korra, the show's spin-off. Basco voiced Prince Zuko on ATLA and Varney voiced Korra on TLOK, as fans call the shows. They have both great voices and insiders' perspectives.

The initial concept of this podcast was for Janet and Dante to recap every Avatar: The Last Airbender episode. But the Avatar: Braving the Elements podcast has become much more. Janet and Dante's excitement builds as they recap each episode on the show. Their interviews are fun and informal. Joining the hosts are influencers, creators, and voice actors from the series. Guests include actors Jack De Sena and Jennie Kwan. Show creators Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino also appear. James Sie, who played the Cabbage Merchant, shares funny memories and insights. For anyone who thinks they already know, this podcast reveals a few secrets. Actress Lauren Tom, star of the TV shows Supernatural and Futurama, shares a secret or two of her own.

Avatar: Braving the Elements podcast is a fun listen for lifelong fans, benders, and non-benders alike.
