This week we welcome back Swara Salih from the Beltway Banthas podcast to talk about one of his and Adrian's favorite cartoons, Avatar: The Last Airbender. However, we can't talk Airbender without talking The Legend of Korra. The American TV show aired on Nickelodeon and quickly grew to become a favorite with kids and adults. As an American cartoon inspired by East Asian animation and culture we talk about how a kid's cartoon deals with real world issues all while bending a mythos of their own.
