PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, has its holiday episode online, just in time for Christmas.  Our 211th episode starts off with the latest in Potter news, including a preview of the One Day in the Life of Daniel Radcliffe book from photographer Tim Hailand, a teaser of the Harry Potter LEGO game, a report from the Economist on the economy of the Harry Potter series, the many end of the year lists coming online, and a rundown of the recent commentary on HBP Live community screening with Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and producer David Barron.  Next, the PotterCast holiday filks are here, giving you the first part of our collection of original holiday themed Harry Potter songs.  A Christmas themed Potter Pundits follows, with a discussion on the always eventful Christmas holiday happenings from the Harry Potter novels.  Following another round of filks, the finale to Albus Severus' story at Hogwarts wraps up his first year at Hogwarts.  The final round of filks leads us into the drums where the PotterCasters discuss their Christmas plans, snow, beer, and a goodbye to Sue.

Also, please send in your favorite PotterCast moments of 2009 to

I am going to miss Sue’s joy and enthusiasm so much! Here’s hoping that she drops in for an occasional PC visit now and again.

Sue, whatever your future holds, I do hope there is at least a little broadcasting involved because you really have a gift for it.

As for a favorite PC moment, I still love the mailbag segment a few episodes back during which John and Frak discussed whether the inferi were after Harry or his clothes. Hilarious!

I saw this on my Twitter a week ago.
Goodbye Sue, I’ll definitely miss you. At least I will carry you around with me forever as the beer glass tattooed upon my back and the yellow jewel in my brooch.
You are truly the Queen of Hufflepuff and will be missed by all who love your squeeness.

I cannot believe Sue is leaving. This is really upsetting, as she was my favorite. The show will just not be the same without her… it will not have the same energy. I am so depressed. But, I totally support Sue and I want her to do what she feels right. Well…. she’ll be very, very, very missed. :( :(

I already downloaded it – hopefully, once the Italian invasion is over, I will have the time to actually listen to it. Although I actually don’t want to hear with my own ears that Sue is leaving.

I’ve heard half the podcast now, but I too am kind of nervous at the thought of Sue leaving… It won’t be the same without her. Otherwise, brilliant podcast epi! Acting troupe finale, pundits and filks!
