When Avatar: The Last Airbender became available on the Netflix streaming service more than a year ago, it arrived with an explosion of fanfare becoming the most popular show for the streaming giant at the time. That’s no small feat for an animated series that premiered more than fifteen years and is a true testament to the passionate fanbase. Between this and the establishment of Avatar Studios earlier this year, there’s never been a better time to be a fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender. It didn’t come as a complete surprise then when last month Nickelodeon announced that it partnered with iHeartRadio to release Avatar: Braving the Elements, a Last Airbender podcast.
Hosted by original series voice actors Janet Varney (the voice of Korra) and Dante Basco (the voice of Prince Zuko), Avatar: Braving the Elements is a deep dive into the wonderful world of the Avatarverse.
