Pod Sing Se #39: The Earth King
Our convo around S02E18: The Earth King (led by Steph!) has a lot of important discussions in it: What we think would make an ideal Avatar theme park ride, if Toph became a murderer this episode, if fever dreams are really realistic, why monarchies suck, and the epic, iconic bending in this episode. And loads of other stuff!  [Pod Sing Se is a spoilery weekly Avatar: The Last Airbender rewatch podcast hosted by Jen, Nicole, Steph, and Abby. This episode was edited by Jen.]

Pod Sing Se #38: Lake Laogai
If you speak Chinese, episode S02E17: Lake Laogai's name might have already spoiled a huge chunk of this episode. But join us anyway as we discuss just how absolutely creepy this episode is, from the implications of multiple Judee's, Zuko's drama hitting a little too close to home, Jet's tragic end, and why Appa needs to commit to violence. And more! :D [Pod Sing Se is a spoilery weekly Avatar: The Last Airbender rewatch podcast hosted by Jen, Nicole, Steph, and Abby. This episode was edited by Jen.]

Pod Sing Se #37: Appa's Lost Days
Join us for S02E16: Appa's Lost Days, arguably THE saddest episode on the series. Jen leads our convo discussing the highs and lows of Appa's journey, including a very angry father at a circus, the morality of circuses existing at all, an epic clash between two badass all-women teams, baby Aang and Appa, and more!

Pod Sing Se #36: The Tales of Ba Sing Se
We've arrived at the iconic episode, S02E15: The Tales of Ba Sing Se! Abby leads our convo discussing the merits of each vignette: how we wish Katara and Toph's episode was longer, how we legitmately love that one particular haiku, how Leaves from the Vine will forever wreck our hearts, and that maybe we should remember how awkward we were as teenagers before teasing Zuko about his love life. There's so much to love about this episode, so join us! [Pod Sing Se is a spoilery weekly Avatar: The Last Airbender rewatch podcast hosted by Jen, Nicole, Steph, and Abby.

Pod Sing Se #35: City of Walls and Secrets
Join Steph as she leads our convo with one of the most insidious and creepy episodes yet, S02E14 City of Walls and Secrets. We discuss how successfully the writers/artists were able to create this slow crawl of dread while still having some of the funnies moments (It's just a bear!?), fantastic Iroh quotes, and Zuko angst, while getting us to also feel incredibly sorry for Jet.  [Pod Sing Se is a spoilery weekly Avatar: The Last Airbender rewatch podcast hosted by Jen, Nicole, Steph, and Abby.

Pod Sing Se Mini Episode #1: Avatar Studios
With the news of Nickelodeon teaming up with Avatar: The Last Airbender creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino to form a new entity and create new original works in the Avatar universe, Nicole, Steph, Abby, and Jen decide to spend a bit of time discussing their thoughts on this news, and where it fits in with pop culture's penchant for reboots and extended universes. We'll be back next week with our regular episodes! [Pod Sing Se is a spoilery weekly Avatar: The Last Airbender rewatch podcast hosted by Jen, Nicole, Steph, and Abby.

Pod Sing Se #33: The Serpent's Pass
How many babies named Hope can there possibly be!? This is one of the crucial topics discussed in our convo about S02E12 The Serpent's Pass, led by Jen.

Pod Sing Se #32: The Desert
Oh man, what a dire episode S02E11 The Desert is! Abby leads this like, truly upsetting episode, where we see Katara struggle to keep things together, and see Aang being so unsure how to process his grief. It's also hilarious, with one of Sokka's most gif-able episodes, and Iroh forgetting he's part of an ancient secret society of helpful old people.

Pod Sing Se #31: The Library
S02E10 The Library, has Stephanie leading the convo as the gaang dives into the depths of the scary yet straightforward Wan Shi Tong. This leads us to questioning Sokka's scientific knowledge, Professor Zei's lack of self-awareness, feeling terrible for Toph and Aang (and Appa, of course), and questioning the origins of the name of our home state here in the US, New Jersey.

Pod Sing Se #30: Bitter Work
Struggling is the name of the game in S02E09 Bitter Work. Lead by Nicole, we watch as Aang struggles with his complete opposite mentality and element--earthbending, see Toph struggle to get Twinkle Toes to plant his feet flat on the ground, Katara trying to help Aang but making it worse, Zuko struggling with his inner demons and denial of said demons, Uncle in guiding Zuko, Sokka between a rock and hard place, and Foo Foo Cuddlypoops being TOO DANG CUTE. The struggle is real, y'all. But you gotta do the bitter work to get those sweet, sweet victories.  [Pod Sing Se is a spoilery weekly Avatar: The Last Airbender rewatch podcast hosted by Jen, Nicole, Steph, and Abby.

Tensions are high for the Gaang in S02E08 The Chase. Lead by Jen, we explore the new team dynamics, the apparently unlimited levels of Katara's pettyness, a tea party that reveals our own immense love of tea, some fantastic fight scenes, and Zuko's angst being responsible for 3000 Linkin Park AMVs.

And here we are at another fan favorite episode--S02E07 Zuko Alone. Lead by Abby, we explore Zuko's past, his extremely problematic family, his struggles to recognize his own traumas and Uncle's unwavering support, and how circumstances in his life have brought him to this point--starving to death in the Earth Kingdom and incapable of doing manual labor.  [Pod Sing Se is a spoilery weekly Avatar: The Last Airbender rewatch podcast hosted by Jen, Nicole, Steph, and Abby.

Stephanie leads our very chaotic convo where we discuss Zuko being a jerk who needs to find himself, Sokka's inner strength for not Losing His Shit, Aang's tragic and short lived love lives, and our insistence that even though we don't care about romance we will still talk about it for half the episode! 🙃 [Pod Sing Se is a spoilery weekly Avatar: The Last Airbender rewatch podcast hosted by Jen, Nicole, Steph, and Abby.

Welcome to our discussion of S01E19: The Siege of the North, Part 1, lead by Abby! There's lots of storylines and setups to discuss in this penultimate season 1 episode, but really, the main question is if we should switch out Zuko's honor count for a "how many times did he almost die this episode" count?
