The 186th episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is now online and features two most interesting interviews for your listening pleasure.  The PotterCasters are also joined by Ryan Freerksen, creator of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows clay animation film, for this episode.  The show kicks off with the latest news from our own Sue, who gives us the latest on Jo's hand prints now on display in Edinburgh, Scotland, the absence of the Minister of Magic in the Half-Blood Prince film, the start of filming for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and much more.  Up next, Sue sits down with LeakyCon 2009 co-directors MJ Harper and Stephanie Dornhelm for a discussion on Leaky's Harry Potter conference taking place in Boston, MA this May.  Complete info and links to register can be found on the official LeakyCon site.  MJ and Stephanie provide insight into the kind of conference we are putting on this year, and give details about what attendees can expect at our first ever fan conference.  The show then features an interview with Ryan Freerksen who lets us in on his motivation and experiences making his Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows clay animation film that appeared online in February.  The show finally wraps up with talk of the 2009 Wizard Rock EP of the Month Club, some 'splosions, Lost talk, and some questions from the UStream audience.  To listen, just hit the "Play" button on the right side of the page (->), or use iTunes, or direct download.
