Mike and I will be on the NPR program All Things Considered tomorrow, Friday April 13th, talking about Korra and Avatar. We did a really cool interview with Neda Ulaby, meaning she asked cool questions (I don’t know if we were cool). We’re really excited and honored to be on that show! Our segment will most likely play in the second hour.
The show is at different times around the country, so you can check the programming schedule here if you are interested. I’m sure it will be online afterward, so I will be posting a link when I have one. I also just discovered that NPR is on Tumblr, and I hear they have a snazzy free app.
Interview with Janet Varney, the Voice of Korra

I have to make this update quick, I’m leaving for Boston in about an hour so gotta write this quickly! Just a heads up, this will probably be the last graphic update until finals are over and I will post more in about three to four weeks from now (probably the end of April). In the meantime I will still regularly check email, post Korra news, and fan community events. There will be plenty of Korra graphics to come!

I’m a little late in announcing this but if you didn’t already know you can download the first two episodes of Korra for free on iTunes! Also, the series should be available on XBOX Live. Later on the week I’ll post the first two episodes on Firebender.
iTunes Description: Avatar Korra, a headstrong, rebellious, feisty young woman who continually challenges and breaks with tradition, is on her quest to become a fully realized Avatar. In this story, the Avatar struggles to find balance between tradition and modernity, the bending and non-bending world, and within herself.
