PotterCast #25 is now available for download and features guest host and PotterCast semi-regular Chris Rankin, with some great info on the beginnings of movie five.
But, first things first: For next week’s Valentine‘s show, we have an extra challenge for you: Send us a no-longer-than-15-second clip on your favorite ship and why it’s your favorite, OR, send a Valentine (a la Ginny’s fresh pickled toad-o-gram) to a character or actor. Get them in by FEBRUARY 11. Here’s how you do it (choose a method):
Skype name: PotterCast
In the US, call: 1.702.42.LEAKY

E-mail a recording to: [email protected]

We’re also looking for a few more good elves; if you would like to be part of the Leaky team by helping out on transcriptions, please e-mail us at [email protected]. We love our elves!

And now, in this show:
