#298: Roll 9 3/4

So this is a special PotterCast, in which we TRY A NEW THING for the first time in 15 years?

WELCOME TO THE FIRST ROLL 9 3/4 OMG AHH!! Frankie came to us a few months ago and wanted to try doing Harry Potter-themed D&D. First, we said “How do you D&D?” and then we just said “let’s do it.”

This is mostly us being silly and ridiculous together and we hope you’ll enjoy the ride.

We really want to know what you think! Please:

– Use the hashtag #roll934 to talk about it so we can talk with you!
– Get us on Twitter at @Roll934 or Facebook (also @Roll934). Website coming soon.
– If you like it, tell your friends! If you don’t like it, shh, we never met.

Frank Franco conceived this project and serves as the game’s DM. The players are Bre Bishop, John Noe, and Melissa Anelli.

Original music (and sound effects!) by Andre Karame.

WE ARE SO NERVOUS BUT THIS WILL BE FUN TELL US WHAT YOU THINK AHHH

#296: The Very Secret and Amazing Life of Arabella Figg

This week: we go through the week’s Potter news, including the new Wizarding World app as well as the upcoming release of the graphic edition of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire!

This week’s What About That: Arabella Figg is here to change all our SEO results. Who was she? What’s her history? Was she married? Was she gay?

Also: squibs in the wizarding world: what does it mean to be a squib? What’s the deal with the book and the quill? Why was it mean to Neville? WHY WOULD ANYONE EVER BE MEAN TO NEVILLE?

Also this week from Mischief Media: Listen to A Story Most Queer, now available wherever you listen!

Don’t forget that we have a Patreon where you can get extra (sorting-related!) content!

By the way: never listen to what number we call the show inside the recording. We’re gonna stop doing that.

Also, in the drums: John explains Brexit!
