Happy Halloween!

Obviously, as witches, we love Halloween. So go nom on some candy and scare some little kids. Just avoid the big trolls and the evil two-faced professors.

Check back here for Tuesday's show, A Hogwarts Halloween, which is all about a charity album for the Harry Potter Alliance!

In the coming weeks, look for more details on the Weeks of Wizardry, as well as all the deets from our shows about Horcruxes and HP7 in general.

Don't forget to get your ticket to the midnight premiere, too!

Harry + Voldie 4 EVER

Photo courtesy of

I found this photo, a production shot from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, while googling for images of the Ministry of Magic for our upcoming show. At first glance, I thought it was some sort of deleted scene screen shot from the movie. It is totally messing with my head right now. Please allow it to mess with yours, too.

Check back later this week (because I know you totally do....) for the podcast on the Ministry of Magic.
