Episode 69 – Overnight Prints

On this episode, Dennis and Kate recap the Avatar the Last Airbender/Legend of Korra art exhibit at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA. Unexpectedly, it felt like unofficial Korra-con. There were guests, people camping out, exclusive merch, scalping, and even cosplay. Was it worth the wait? You’ll have to listen to find out. Read more


Extra Jam 5 – Comics Everybody (65.5)

Dennis gets Adam, Garrett, and J to return for our off-topic podcast, wherein we discuss a lot of comic book TV shows and movies. We even revisit Blade II. This episode was recorded before the super big Marvel movie reveal, so a lot of the speculation has been debunked. But we still have fun with it anyway. Oh, and add a little bit of Korra talk. Then we end it with some videogames and fitness. Read more


ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Last week, Dennis and Kate were nominated to take the ALS Ice Bucket challenge. With filming help from our friend Rya, we decided to take it a diffferent level by wearing our Avatar/Korra costumes! Hope you enjoy, and don’t forget to donate to the cause.

Episode 48 – Cosplay Outside the Con Scene

All right. It’s the last of our backlog episodes, as Kate and Dennis talk about their experiences with cosplay activities outside of conventions. And Dennis tells us how he went to a signing for the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender while wearing his Sokka cosplay at Barnes & Noble. Meanwhile, Kate talks about the 2013 Costume College (or CoCo for short) and her learning experiences taking those classes will hopefully improve her cosplay knowledge. Thanks again for your patience! Episode 48 is a go! Read more


Episode 46 – Comic Con…Deal With It

Guardians of the Galaxy

Ah yes, the infamous San Diego Comic Con. We meet again. The most popular of conventions that we attend is also the one we are afraid of the most before it starts. There’s so much prep time for it that sometimes you almost have to force yourself to have fun. Luckily, this year was not the case for us, and fun was had by all! Join Dennis and Kate as they give a quick recap of all their Avatar universe related adventures (no, not the blue cats) along with dealing with exclusives, a pirate ship adventure, and a great story that took years in the making for a friend. Episode 46 is a go! Read more


Episode 37 – Better Than the Mall

So many conventions, and not enough time. In the first part of our Easter Weekend convention coverage, here we have a recap of Wonder Con. Lots of spending, and especially lots of cosplay. There’s the return of talking about food and food trucks, along with our trek to finally experience Slaters 50/50. And we have a new segment about the things we (mostly Dennis) bought at the conveion which we’re calling Convention Haul. And it seemed that our Avatar cosplays were a big hit! Hope you enjoy then stories and the photos. And why is it that Dennis can’t say Finn? Episode 37 is a go! Read more


Episode 36 – Deal with It


Short episode today, but you’re not worried about this description. No! It’s Easter Weekend, and you’ve got conventions to attend! Well, so do we, so we got a short episode for you while we were finishing up some Wonder Con cosplay. Still, we needed a little mental break, so Kate and Dennis stopped by the Legend of Korra Fan Art Show presented by Pixel Drip. A few photos are on our Facebook page if you wanted to check them out (beware: all phone pics). And we also talk about what we’ve been working on as well. It’s an all Avatar/Korra podcast today. Episode 36 is a go!
