The 145th episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is now online featuring a foursome of PotterCast fantastic-ness and the latest installment of “Are You Smarter than John Noe?” In the news this week, we bring you new information on the possibility for a May debut of the “Half-Blood Prince” trailer, a teaser report the Slughorn Christmas party scene in HBP, Harry Potter influences at the university level, Jo presenting a literacy award to prison inmates, and much more. We also have for you an update on the current situation with the Harry Potter Lexicon. Next, four PotterCast listeners match wits with our John Dawlish in a the latest edition of “Are You Smarter than John Noe?” Our Scribby5 girls then return to discuss a number of topics related to their essays and a new contest they have launched. Canon Conundrums makes its return featuring Sue, John, and Frak batting around theories and ideas, trying to figure out which Hogwarts house Alastor “Mad Eye” Moody was sorted into.
