REPUBLIC CITY DISPATCH #7: BONUS EPISODE!
BE FOREWARNED - Discussion includes Avatar: The Last Airbender, Chapters 1-7 of The Legend of Korra and could expand to include The Promise (Part One), Nick.com’s “Welcome To Republic City” at any time.
Good Morning Benders and Non-Benders alike and Welcome to The Republic City Dispatch, a radio programme covering Nickelodeon’s Legend of Korra series. This week: a special bonus episode while time stands still in Republic City. This episode goes out to Air Temple Island with this special message from our listeners: “Korra, Tenzin, Mako, Bolin, Pabu, Naga, Assami, Pema, Jinora, Ikki, Meelo - everyone take a moment to relax!” It’s time for Matt, Da7e and Devindra!
This week-without-and-episode, we talk about internet fandom and how it relates to criticism, how we got involved in online fandom, if it’s fair to apply straight criticism to Korra before it is over - PLUS - a Lightning Round covering our most frequently asked questions and posed theories and each member of the podcast has something you should check out to tide you over until next Saturday when Korra returns (or that’s what it looks like - that’s on the podcast too).
Hosted by Devindra Hardawar of the /Filmcast and Da7e and Matt Patches of Operation Kino.
