Tonight we have for you the 154th episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, online for your listening pleasure. The entire quartet is back this week and poised to discuss the big news of a Harry Potter prequel written by J. K. Rowling being auctioned on June 11th. Sue brings us the latest news on this auction, what is written on the card, and much more. In addition to this news, we bring you information on the 10th Anniversary Edition of “Sorcerer’s Stone,” the “Half-Blood Prince” filming, and the tragic death of Robert Knox last week. We then have for you the next installment of Phoenix Files where the foursome discusses the next part of the OotP film in which the Trio fights back against Umbridge and takes flight to the Ministry. A new edition of Canon Conundrums follows with further theorizing on the 800-word notecard and what it might contain. Finally, the PotterCast quartet is back with an Acting Troupe update, a PotterCast PSA on safe kayaking, John’s plea for a Disneyland job, and the French word of the week.
