PotterCast 165: Terminus Part One

Sep 22, 2008

Posted by: EdwardTLC


Tonight we have for you the first of two weeks of PotterCast from Terminus, the Harry Potter conference that took place last month in Chicago, Illinois. The 165th episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast is now online with part one of the live recording from the conference. Sue’s News starts off the show with new pictures from “Half-Blood Prince” via new merchandise, more images from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter construction at Universal Orlando, EA’s announcement on the HPB video game release date, a ruling in the JKR/WB vs. RDR Books lawsuit, and the recent test screening of “Half-Blood Prince.” The PotterCast quartet then discusses the spoilerific details from the screening. After that, we use our time turners to transport ourselves back to Terminus, where the Quartet discusses the conference, plays some games with the audience, and sits down with the creators behind Wizrockumentary Documentary. We are then treated with a performance from wizard rock band The Mudbloods, followed by an interview with the band members. Part One then wraps up with a live version of “Guess That Book” with the audience. Stay tuned for Part Two next week!
