PotterCast 220: Oh Snap!

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.

Hi, is anyone else having problems downloading the last 2 video versions from itunes? Gutted – particularly the park preview for obvious reasons.

I especially enjoyed this Pottercast:

Melissa: “What was it, tumeric, tumeron…?”
John: “Wasn’t that the rapper who died…?”
Melissa: “That was Tupac, John, Tupac.”

Or something like that. Either way, I laughed my head off!

Oh and I love that y’all stood up against the flighty Avatar fans. That film was way boasty and over the top ridiculous!
