Tonight we have for you the 152nd episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast. First in the news, Sue gives us updates on the elusive “Half-Blood Prince” trailer, new HBP set reports, recently released photos of Lucius Malfoy, our little Main Page redesign, and Jo’s win as Author of the Year from the Children’s Book Awards. Up next, a new Phoenix Files tackles the moments after the DA lessons on casting a patronus to the scenes prior to the big Ministry battle in the “Order of the Phoenix” film. As part of this extended segment, the PotterCasters discuss the patronus charm, the Room of Requirement, Grawp, and Harry’s Occlumency lessons. Our Scribby5 Ladies are here once again to then discuss a new essay called “Chaucer, J.K. Rowling, and All of Us” by author Fidelia from their 24th issue.
