PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, has its 220th episode of Harry Potter news, discussion, and fun online tonight for your listening pleasure.  This week, Melissa gives us a rundown on the latest Potter news, which includes information from actress Sophie Thompson on her role as Mafalda Hopkirk in "Deathly Hallows," more on the LEGO Harry Potter video game, Warwick Davis speaking about DH, a video of the Wizarding World's Forbidden Journey ride, and JKR's recent Single Mother Manifesto.  Following our Leaky round up, PotterCast gets back to its roots with a round of Quick Fire Cannon Conclundrums where we quickly answer some of your HP related queries.  The Trio then checks in with your latest video voicemails, and answers your burning Harry Potter questions.  Finally, the show wraps up in the drums and talk of bug bites, Avatar talk, and much more.

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.

I can’t download it for some reason, both normal and low bandwidth versions won’t work.
Really, what is going on?

About the discussion of how Ron can speak parselmouth. I don’t get how you can say it’s “just another language”, it’s not. It’s the language of snakes, just like dogs would bark to each other or what ever. Humans can’t replicate that and expect to do it correctly.

Oh yay another one. I started listened to them a few months ago and have almost caught up so I’m glad there is another one to add to my list. They are great to listen to whilst walking to lectures. I get some funny looks though because I’m walking along laughing to myself!

CatAlley,
I’ve had trouble downloading from Leaky the past couple of Pottercasts, too. Try downloading from here instead:

Your download link is not working.

The direct download link should be
http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3?http://media.libsyn.com/media/pottercast/pc100502.mp3
(100502 rather than 10502). It isn’t obvious what the problem with the low bandwidth link is.
