The 178th episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is now online featuring the latest in Harry Potter news and discussion. Sue’s News begins the show with news of the upcoming premiere of Rupert Grint’s Cherrybomb, Evanna Lynch posing for fashion photographer Katrin Thomas, a new Emma Watson interview, LeakyCon’s Wizard Wrock announcement, a Half-Blood Prince set report, and sales figures for The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
