Birds & boys

This week we're back and chatting all about relationships in the Potterverse. Our inspiration for the theme, as many have guessed, is from the HATP song, "Hermione's Birds and Boys." We talked a bit about the Hermione-Ron-Lavender triangle, the Harry-Ginny-Dean story, Fred-George-Angelina, Lily-James-Snape, Neville and Luna, Bill and Fleur, Draco and Pansy, and more! The love never stops her at The Witching Hour. Although sometimes it's unrequited. And sometimes.... it's un-podcasted. It's all Sara's fault guys!! I accidentally deleted the file. I am the worst. I know. But here's the track list anyways...?

End of an era (or is it?)

We're back for another season!!!! Yay yay yay wizard rock! Wizard rock forever!

The Witching Hour has loads of new music, stories, and more to share with you, dear listener. We'll be talking about Pottermore, reviewing Deathly Hallows part 2, airing our interview with Harry and the Potters, and hopefully getting into some super sweet discussions about the Potterverse, as usual.

This week we answer Oliver Boyd's song "End of an Era" with a resounding "Hey, no it's not!" Sure, things are changing, some aspects of wizard culture are changing, but it's not the end, not yet. But we still love the song.
