The latest episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is now online with our 184th edition of Harry Potter news, discussion, and more. Sue's News kicks off the show with information on an interview with Matt Lewis (Neville Longbottom), the end of Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Richard Griffith's (Uncle Vernon) Broadway run in Equus, J. K. Rowling's French Legion of Honor Award, Steven King's comments about J. K. Rowling and Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, and the new Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince posters. Discussion continues on this subject with some callers from the live UStream chat, who dissect and analyze the newest posters. The PotterCasters then talk about the biggest news of the week: MyLeaky. The Quartet then walk you through all of the features of MyLeaky, as well as give you a few details on what is to come on TLC's social network. Up next, part two (or three) of our Canon Conclundrums airs, with an even deeper look into the Potions Master, Severus Sanpe. The show then wraps up with talk the last episode of PotterCast with Vlogbrothers John and Hank Green, a 'Thank you' to the Acting Troupe crew, and a few questions from the live audience.

I was there for the first little bit, and it’s funny to see how much mechanical fussing there is live, and must be taking out for the real show. Like John starting and stopping the entire thing, like, five times.

I’ve listened to it (last night) and I was so excited when I heard my own voice (which I now hate).

whats kings problem? stephenie writes for tweens and teens. twilight is more a love story than it is a horror story. it’s the classic case of lovers who have social, and moral obstacles. it’s a good story, and people relate to it. that doesn’t call for trashing her as a writer. she is no j.k. rowling, but i honestly enjoyed the twilight series. as a matter of fact, king is no j.k. either!!

I concer hermy65. I’m 35 and love the books even though I don’t fit the demographic. I’m male and my age. I know also that Stephenie isn’t a great writer, yet, only 5 books. I can tell J.K. has improved over her seven main books. I guess Steven is but I only get half way and I’m bored and have no idea what is going on. I’ll take Twilight over King anytime.
