Happy New Year!  It is time once again for the PotterCasters to take a look back at the year that has passed in the life of PotterCast.  Our 212th episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, features Melissa, John, and Frak as they highlight some of your favorite PotterCast moments from 2009.  From six week long PotterCast summer tour, to the many fandom and news events of the past year, this episode goes through the biggest events month by month.  Leaky's Year in Review can be found here, here, and here.  A montage of clips from the past year follows.  In the WrapUp, the PotterCasters talk of their New Years plans, what they look forward to in 2010, and leave us with their parting 2009 memories.
As a reminder, the LeakyCon DVD, which will be available to pre-order soon, will also include all wizard rock performances from our conference.  If you like live wizard rock, be sure to reserve your copy of the upcoming LeakyCon Live Album of the wizard rock live shows at our LeakyCon 2009 conference.  To listen, just hit the "Play" button on the right side of the page (->), or use iTunes, or direct download.
This episode of PotterCast is dedicated to Eric Bowling.

Thanks for the retrospective. Switching over years is always both bittersweet & hopeful at the same time. Loved the addition of Potter Pundits to the podcast. Hated the departure of Sue, even while respecting her decision. Keep going strong next year & into the future!

Oh, agree with those who want Smeagol added to the drums. :)

This PC episode was AWESOME!! You guys are great! Love the little montage and Frak… you made me laugh so hard when you talked like Smeagol and yelled, “Stupid! Twilight is so Stupid! Sparkle, sparkle.. oh loo I’m a vampire!” OMG!!! That was SO FUNNY!!! I love you guys! :)

Oh and please have Smeagol on more often… we would all love to hear his opinion. ;)

I felt like this episode was missing something…Maybe I’m in the same boat as GubraithianGryffindor. It just felt…off. Hmm. Smeagol talking about sparkly vampires was hilarious though

Missing Sue. :(

I have to agree on the hanging out in the back by the time they hit the Seattle area! Wish I could have sat and chatted with them! Awesome seeing them on tour.
