Extendable Ears returns to PotterCast this week in a big way with Cheryl Klein, editor at Arthur A. Levine books at Scholastic, who has helped bring the last two Harry Potter books to the world, as well as serves as the guiding hand to a wide range of other novels. We'll be talking with her not only about Potter but writing and editing in the fantasy/young adult genres in general.
She'll be with us for the whole show, so here are the ways you can interact:

-1. Leave your question for Cheryl on our voicemail (call 702.42.LEAKY, Skype "PotterCast or follow the other instructions on
2. Leave a voicemail about Canon Conundrums (which makes its return this week): What do you think the gleam in Dumbledore's eye at the end of book four meant?
Thanks guys, we can't wait - this is going to be a very fun show. Cheryl is not only wickedly smart, but very funny (and I don't just say that as her friend; and yes, PotterCast listeners...she's "hott" Cheryl, who has recently earned her third T. You'll find out why on the show.)
