One of the best Pottercasts in recent history. Not sure why, but particularly funny, and a very long Acting Troupe section = much win!

Also, this Ravenclaw demands random llamas. LLAMAS!

I always look forward to the next PotterCast episode; and I have yet to be disappointed. Sue’s News and anything to do with John are the highlights for me; however, the PotterCast Acting Troupe just keeps getting better each time!

While it’s not JK’s work, the Troupe certainly is carrying the magic forward. Thank you all so much for this. Here’s to more episodes and further character development: CHEERS!
