I was there, and it was totally the best experience I’ve had in months! I won the trivia game, and I was the one who brought the discussion back to Animagi, to most of the Pottercasters’ chagrin XD

Maybe this is like swearing in the church, but it amazes me you haven’t sorted out the sound yet – after 176 episodes of PotterCast!
