Pumpkin Lasagna recipe Angie mentioned (I substitute spinach for the swiss chard in the recipe - A)

The wonderful Jak Locke who was with us very briefly can be found here

Episode 10 - The Legend of Korra

Download as an mp3
We had a few Skype hiccups while recording, but I did my best to clean them up.

You can now find us on iTunes!  Just search for Strangers from the Internet.

Huge thanks to Igor for joining us this episode! Check out his photography, his livejournal, and his Urbis Arcana stories - Chicago based fiction with a supernatural twist.

Link to Republic City here. The information on the herd of  sky bison can be found on Air Temple Island, and the stuff about Zuko can be found at Central City Station. The interface is much like Pottermore, where you have to wander around and find stuff to get some of the information, or we would link you directly to it.

The similarities between Amon/Noatak and Korra are not as obvious with Noatak as an adult (though they share many facial expressions) however Noatak's teenager self is dead ringer for her. (Expressions are similar for ease of comparison.)

Angry/concentrating Adult!Amon/Noatak

Angry/Concentrating Teen!Amon/Noatak
Angry/Concentrating Korra

Similarities: Face shape in general, they get the same eyebrows when they frown (and many of their facial expressions are shared), similar nose shape, and young Amon/Noatak has a very similar hairstyle to Korra (it's not obvious in the shot taken but he wears a high pony tail and his sideburns hang loose beside his face).

Cannot find a link to the Avatar the Last Airbender videos mentioned during the podcast, it seems like the offer we were talking about (watch the series, legally, for free) is one of the following: 1 - no longer available; 2- I (Bethany) suck at finding it; 3 - we all collectively hallucinated that. Let us know which in the comments.

Thanks again to Kevin from Made of Fail Productions for joining us and being our first guest!  You can see the many, many projects that keep Kevin busy at

While I was editing the episode, DC announced that they are in fact working on a Justice League film. 

I'm starting to think I dreamed up the Neil Gaiman Loki comment because I can't find it on his tumblr.

And now, for some silliness:

Disappointed in the number of Science Bros gifs available, but this makes me giggle. Found here

This more than made up for it. Much more here and there's even a video here which is worth the watch.
One more, just because I can:

Episode 8 - The Hunger Games

This month we decided to talk about "The Hunger Games" book and movie, and some of the controversies surrounding it when the movie came out. There are spoilers for the movie and book but we do not speak about the subsequent books. Hope you enjoy!

The 25 Most Racist Tweets About "The Hunger Games" Seriously, for your sanity, avoid the comments.

Amandla Stenberg (Rue) on the racist tweets

Just for funzies, there is a new brouhaha about future casting of a character named Finnick and honestly all the actors who are suggested as white alternatives don't fit the physical description nearly as well as Jesse Williams. (Ian Somerhalder is hot like burning but "golden" he is not.) Basically, what those people are saying is that they only are attracted to white guys, so this super handsome guy has to be white.
