PotterCast 125: “Conference Call”


Nov 20, 2007

Posted by: EdwardTLC | Comments


Fan conferences are the talk around town in this week’s PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast. In our 125th episode, Sue and John chat with Becky from the organizers of Portus, the fan conference in Dallas, Texas, and to Amy, from Terminus , set to be held during the summer of 2008 in Chicago, Illinois. In these interviews, we go into much detail about the two conferences and of what each conference will bring those in attendance. We will have much more on this theme in the future, as we check in on ‘What’s Up In the Fandom.’ Our own Kristin Brown is also back with us to share some of your latest owls in a new MailBag. We also bring you the latest news from the “Half-Blood Prince” casting office, the “Order of the Phoenix” UK DVD release, author J. K. Rowling’s “The Beetle and the Bard” charity auction, and much more. To listen, just hit the “Play” button on the right side of the page (>), or use iTunes, or direct download.
