Crimes of Grindelwald

#285: Live with Alison Sudol at LeakyCon 2018

Happy holidays! This week we are going back to LeakyCon in Dallas, where The Ringer’s Mallory Rubin and Jason Concepcion interviewed Alison Sudol about Queenie Goldstein, writing, creation, and more. This was conducted BEFORE CoG came out in theaters, so maybe now is a great time to revisit everything we heard.

We’ll be presenting more of these interviews between now and the day we return in the second week of January! Enoy! And make sure to check out Mal and Jason’s podcast, Binge Mode: Harry Potter — they truly are some of the best Potter podcasters in history.

#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.

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.

The link!

#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. 🙂

Extra: The Crime of Grindelwald

We recorded this conversation BEFORE J.K. Rowling’s recent comments on this issue; we’ll discuss that in our next episode, but didn’t want this to get lost in the meantime.

We discuss Johnny Depp’s casting and the issues around it, as well as director David Yates’s recent comments on the matter. Please be warned there may be triggering content for those suffering the effects of abuse.
