After a bit of a break for the 4th of July, PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is back this week with our 159th episode of Harry Potter news, discussion, and fun. The news came pouring in this week, and Sue is here to bring you information on the first high-res stills from the “Half-Blood Prince” film, the HBP video game trailer, a new interview with Stuart Craig from Movie Magic Magazine, theme park updates, and more. The PotterCasters continue on with Chapter 13 of “Deathly Hallows” in the next installment of Bit by Bit. This week, the topic of the Trio in the Ministry with Umbrdige is covered along with a discussion on the different descriptive traits used for various characters. Next up, we introduce a brand new PotterCast segment called: Guess that Book. This new call-out game gives listeners the chance to guess a particular quote from one of the seven Harry Potter novels in this fun new segment. This episode concludes with a WrapUp that gives you updates on the PotterCast Tour, another spoiler from Melissa’s book, ComicCon news, and a shout out to the editors! To listen, just hit the "Play" button on the right side of the page (->), or use iTunes, or direct download.
