Fun podcast but have to correct you on the canon conundroms. You guys brushed off what was very clearly an inconsistency in JKR’s writing – and a great question.

Harry was in Voldemort’s head in DH and Voldemort said to himself that he was the only one clever enough to have discovered the unknowable room. Well this makes no sense since the room is filled with so many hidden objects – as Harry and Draco have established. The room itself is defined by the fact that many people hide stuff there. Voldermort should have thrown the horcuxes in landfill somewhere. Then he would never die. Stupid Dark Lord! :-P And mediocre writing on this part by JKR. Love the books, but this was a great canon question.

Love the podcast, keep it up!
