PotterCast 172: The Subway


Nov 11, 2008

Posted by EdwardTLC

The 172nd episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast is now online (along with an entire new week of vlogs) with the start of our three part series where we examine Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling’s The Beedle the Bard stories prior to its release. As always, Sue starts off the show with the latest news, which includes bits of information from the actors about the Deathly Hallows film, Mamma Mia overtaking the Harry Potter film at the British Box Office, David Heyman speaking about the Half-Blood Prince film, and our very own Melissa appearing appearing on the cover of USA Today for her now released Harry, A History. Next, the first installment of Beedle Talk features the Quartet discussing The Wizard and the Hopping Pot and The Fountain of Fare Fortune stories. This segment goes into detail about what is known about the stories as well as the Beedle the Bard book as a whole. The show wraps up with a Subway story from New York, registering for LeakyCon, Melissa’s guacamole recipe, and more about the PotterCaster’s Vlogs. To listen, just hit the “Play” button on

Thank you!Avatar Image says: Melissa - The Latin word for love (the verb) is "amare" (in the infinitive), and is conjugated amo, amos, amat. Add the requisite "a" on to make it a female, and boom - you got Amata! Also, does Sue have any dogs? She could be Poodles. Or since she is Queen of the news, she could be Feudal.
