About Aang in There …

Aang in There is a spoiler-filled rewatch of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Every week, Zak and Jacob break down an episode of ATLA with the benefit of knowing the whole universe of Avatar. We also include the following segments:

  • Episode Recap – Zak and Jacob start by giving an in-depth breakdown of all the plot points and minor details from the episode.
  • Feedback – Zak and Jacob go through listener feedback and answer the questions or comments written into their official email: [email protected]
  • Episode Rankings – Zak and Jacob will create an official Aang in There ranking of every episode of ATLA, by rating them all on a scale from 0-4. Zak and Jacob will give their own scores, plus the listeners’ scores will be averaged and added as the third point. Then, the three scores will be combined to create the official podcast score for each episode!
  • Battle of the Battles – Zak and Jacob will rank the Battles similar to the episode rankings. Each battle will be ranked from 0-4 and Zak, Jacob, and the listener’s scores will be averaged together to get the official Battle Rankings.

Schedule for next week:
