PotterCast 188: Sue's Birthday... Not New Stuff

Posted by: Edward

We have for you today the 188th episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, bringing you the latest Harry Potter news, discussion, and fun.  This week, Melissa, Sue, John, and Frak are joined by Paul DeGeorge from Harry and the Potters and Matt Maggiacomo of The Whomping Willows who sit down to talk about their No New Stuff Campaign.  As always, Sue starts off the show with the latest news, including information on the Robert Knox murder case, music from the Half-Blood Prince video game, the first photo from the Deathly Hallows films, Beedle the Bard being shortlisted for the Children's Book of the Year, Tom Felton's twitter, major Deathly Hallows casting news, and much more.  The PotterCasters then sit down with Matt and Paul to discuss their No New Stuff Project and the EP of the Month Club of 2009.  We then move on to the next installment of Bit by Bit, which gets into the actual Deathly Hallows as the PotterCasters begin to discuss Chapter Twenty.  Finally, the show wraps up some questions from our live audience, Sue's thank you for the birthday wishes, and a special preview of the Harry, A History audio book.  To listen, just hit the "Play" button on the right side of the page (->), or use iTunes, or direct download.
