The 191st episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is online with the latest in Harry Potter and our first replacement Melissa! To start off the show, Sue gives us the latest in Harry Potter news including new Jason Isaacs interviews, Half-Blood Prince character posters, LeakyCon Keynote Speakers John and Hank Green (get your tickets here), TotalFilm feature on Half-Blood Prince, Jo Rowling attending the G20 Summit Dinner, some more Deathly Hallows casting news, and some possible rumors. Up next, a new round of listeners battle against our own John Noe in a new edition of Are You Smarter Than John Noe? Canon Conundrums is up next with a discussion on the pureblood in the other wizarding communities around the world. Finally, the drums bring the end of the show with round of applause for our first fake Melissa, talk of Mount Pelligrino, herds of cats, and much more. To listen, just hit the "Play" button on the right side of the page (->), or use iTunes, or direct download.

Whoo! Awesome trailer. You guys were wondering what Draco was holding – I think its a feather from the bird he sent through the cabinet. Anyone else agree?

I cannot wait to listen to this podcast this weekend. This, along with the other one (192), will provide much rich diversion as far as I am concerned.
