Listen to ‘The Avatar Returns’ Episode 23


The Avatar Returns episode 23 is available for listening or download right here and on iTunes here.

It’s a new age, and there’s a brand new Avatar! 70 years have passed since Aang and his friends ended the Hundred Year War, and the world has moved on. Paul, Eric, and Arlo get the bend back together (get it?) to discuss the legend (and attitude) of Korra of the Southern Water Tribe. In chapter 101, “Welcome to Republic City,” our new hero leaves her frozen homeland behind for the pseudo-steampunk ’20s era New York-meets-Shanghai industrial revolution of the capital. We talk about how different Korra is from her predecessor, what kind of man Aang’s youngest son has grown up to be, and whether non-benders can really survive in a city filled with bender gangs and metalbending cops. And in chapter 102, “A Leaf in the Wind,” Korra struggles with her spiritual side, we’re introduced to the sport of Pro-bending, and good lord the voice cast of this series!

Plus there’s listener e-mail, and the rules of pai sho.

Next: The Legend of Korra Book One: Air continues with chapters 103, “The Revelation” and 104, “The Voice in the Night.”
