Episode 189 of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is now online for your audible enjoyment.  This episode starts off with the latest Harry Potter news from our own Sue, who gives us the latest on the Lego Harry Potter game, Matt Lewis on Twitter, Deathly Hallows filming in Wales, Toby Jones' clues on Dobby in DH, and reminds you to stay tuned for more DH casting news soon!  Up next, five callers (and a special guest) match wits with our own John Noe in the latest installment of Are You Smarter Than John Noe?  A new Canon Conundrums follows with the PotterCasters discussing what the series would be like if Neville, not Harry, was the boy who lived.  Finally, the show wraps up with talk of Melissa's upcoming trip to Italy, Harry, a History now being out on audio book, what the Ravenclaw would be like in Movie Seven, Nerdfighters, and super cool LeakyCon 2009 announcements coming soon and much more.  Register for LeakyCon here!
