16.3: Drop It Like It’s Grawp

Woo hoo it’s PotterCast time and it hasn’t even been six months! This week, we are talking about what a TV series starring Arthur and Molly would look like, and pondering what you would or should do if you were to wake up as 11 year-old Harry with all seven books’ knowledge in your head. Trippy.

We are still going through all your amazing emails for guest hosting and will be reaching out to people soon! Please also welcome our new editor, Christine Peruski! It’s her first time, y’all, and she did a great job!

16.2: Can We Just Buy Out J.K. Rowling (Reaction Pod)

The internet went crazy today when a rumor seemed to break through about the always-destined Harry Potter television show — specifically that while no series is actually in the works, WB is now officially shopping for writers and pitches for an HBO Max event. We did a quick-and-dirty reaction pod with our three hosts and our good friend Proma Khosla, a longtime LeakyCon staffer and Mashable entertainment reporter, to break down the news, what it means for the franchise, and what the fandom does now. 

Basically, we decided the fandom just needs to get a trillion dollars together and buy the franchise from JKR.

16.1: Shade from Spotify

When your 2020 wrapped congratulates you on all four episodes of content you produced this year, it must be PotterCast!

Welcome to season 16, in which we are, we swear, on the edge of actually producing this thing at a normal clip. See how it’s going to start to work in this episode in which we introduce a few new segments — a bit of opening chatter (including an IN-Depp conversation as Frankie puts it) with your gang, then two new segments: POTTER PONDERINGS (in this episode, we wonder what it takes to make a Hufflepuff go dark) and HEY NETFLIX (in which we pitch spinoff shows about the Potter universe — today, what would we want from a show about the Ministry of Magic?). Then join us to chat in the drums as usual!

15.6: 15 Years!

It’s our 15-year PotterCast anniversary! WHAT!? This is our live show that we did to celebrate, the video of which you can access at fb.com/pottercast. In this episode, we do some nostalgia, we do some mailbags, we do some Q&A, we play some Quiplash, and we reflect on the magic of the past and the promise of the future.

15.5: Unsafe Waters

Welcome to our OOL. Notice there’s no P in it. Please keep it that way.”

In this episode, Frak, John, and Melissa do what they had not yet done together as hosts and friends: discuss and unpack J.K. Rowling’s harmful rhetoric regarding transgender people. We strongly encourage you to listen to 15.2: Sorting It Out, the episode we released right after her tweet in December, for information and facts on why what she is doing is so difficult to parse. 

Here is a link to the twitter thread we referenced debunking JKR’s statements:

We also touch on the future of the show, and the state of things in the pool. (You’ll get it when you listen.)  PotterCast is hoping to recommit to what it did much more in the early days when we didn’t all have other jobs: highlighting a wider expanse of fandom, creation, and fun. We appreciate your patience!
