Youth Culture Killed My Dog, Episode 13: Every Time I Eat Raw Kale, I’m Going to Think of You

In the thirteenth episode of Youth Culture Killed My Dog, Roy Rogers, Melissa Rogers, and Patrick Colan continue our coverage of the third season/book of The Legend of Korra. On this outing we dig into the near cancellation of Korra, the fourth through ninth episodes of the season, the general awesomeness of Jinora, the Lin/Suyin dynamic, the nature of legacy and consequence in the Korra-verse, and the Red Lotus.
