PotterCast #6 is now available for download! n this show: It’s Banned Books week, and we have discusssions with librarians, the American Library Association and more on the topic. Our mods talk about the banned books they’ve read and how they’ve affected their lives. And we continue with part two of our three-part interview with Matt Lewis, who plays Neville Longbottom in the HP films; in this part we start getting into Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Matt tells us about the kind of preparations director Mike Newell put him and the rest of the cast through before filming, acting like a Trekkie, which scenes had everyone buzzing, dancing with Bonnie Wright, and more.
We also spawned an impromptu task for you all during this week’s disucssion: Design a T-shirt for Jo Rowling on the theme of being banned, and we’ll send her the best three designs. Get to it, visual people!

And of course, we have John Noe just being John Noe. A preview: “I love Judy Blume. She’s like my favorite author of Judy Blume books.
