#283: The McGonagall Of It All

The PotterCast Trio is still unpacking thoughts, feelings, and theories about the Crimes of Grindelwald and all it means for the canon and the fandom. Two episodes in and we have barely scratched the surface! Be sure to tell us your feelings and thoughts on @PotterCast everywhere, or by emailing staff@pottercast.com, or joining our Patreon!

#282: ORLYus

We’ve all seen Fantastic Beasts 2: Crimes of Grindelwald, and we are here to discuss and discuss and discuss and discuss. We barely scratch the surface over this 90 minutes, but we get into the big reactions, the big reveals, and the McGonagall of it all.

#281: Nagini

SO MUCH TO TALK ABOUT WHERE DO WE START?!?!! PotterCast breaks down the revelations, theories, and more in the final trailer for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Crimes of Grindelwald.” Or, Episode II.

#281: Grindelwald and the Sorcerer’s Stone

PotterCast goes over the latest Crimes of Grindelwald trailer in deep and in some cases excruciating detail, with a watch-along that you can join in at the link below. Plus, Melissa details what it was like at San Diego Comic Con when the trailer debuts, and the trio talks about the upcoming plans for the show, LeakyCons (in plural) and more!
The link!

Extra: Sacred Text

We have a special episode for you today: a full episode of “Harry Potter and the Sacred Text,” a podcast you should really check out. Melissa was a guest on one of their shows, and speaks about chance, J.K. Rowling, and the Harry Potter fandom. Then hang with Vanessa and Casper as they break down “The Dream” chapter from Goblet of Fire!

 

Thanks to our friends at HPatSS for the collaboration – and we can’t wait to have them on PotterCast!

#279: Semiregular!

We are back and we are getting close to the 280 mark, which has been eluding us for several years now! This week, we talk about the new Harry Potter app, get Cursed Child review from Charlie Weasley, and more!

#278: LeakyNews!

PotterCast 278 brings back the news roundups! Emma from The Leaky Cauldron joins us to keep us updated about the latest goings on in Harry Potter news (with all the info on the newest Harry Potter video game, the Cursed Child Broadway premiere, and Dan Fogler’s podcast…).

 

We also break down Ch. 6 of Sorcerer’s Stone (and it’s now John’s job to summarize each chapter forever). Also in this episode: a deep dive on chocolate frog cards (is this the wizarding world’s version of Facebook messenger?), what do wizards wear under their clothes?, MORE on wizarding clothing (when will we stop?), and Dudley vs. fat shaming.

#277: Dapperdore

The PotterCast trio watch the new “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” together live and break it down into the tiniest bits and discussions the way only fans can do. LOTS of Dapperdore/Dudebrodore/Youngledore discussion, Theseus, the wizarding circus, what’s a maledictus?, is this wizarding appropriate fashion?, why is Johnny Depp still there?, Nagini theories, Credence Barebone’s ancestry..and more. Watch along with us!

#276: No Noe

Oh no! No Noe! Melissa and Frak discuss their reactions to Jo’s reactions to the Johnny Depp controversy; we play your reactions to last week’s episode, Queer. And we mean to cover Ch 5/6 of book one, but there was just too much to discuss and we only make it through Ch 5! 
 
In the drums it’s Black Panther, surprising podcast recs, and tales of woe from inside the old PotterCast tours (including why Frankie can’t eat at Subway).

#275: Queer

Welcome to 2018! We are talking about the latest developments in the Potter news — including the odd statements made recently regarding Dumbledore’s sexuality in Fantastic Beasts 2. Is it straightwashing, ineffective PR, or just a misunderstanding?

Also! News on what’s coming up for the show, Frankie shares a story about a blob, and the drums we tell you what to watch and listen to, because we care like that. 🙂
