The 194th episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is here for you today, filled with the latest Potter news, discussion, interviews, and more.  First up, Sue gives us the low down on the most recent Harry Potter news including, the airing of the ITV J K. Rowling documentary airing on ABC in the States, Dan Radcliffe's Drama Desk nomination for Equus, Matt Lewis' comments on Neville in Deathly Hallows, Shell Cottage filming, along with much more.  We also get the lowdown on the one-of-a-kind set of signed Harry Potter books going up for raffle at LeakyCon.  Next, the PotterCasters interview TLC Editor Edward, who attended a press preview for Harry Potter: The Exhibition in Chicago, Illinois.  In this interview, they discuss some of the coolest things contained in the Exhibition, detail the various sets and props on display, and take some questions from the live UStream audience.  The full text report from the event is availble here.  A new edition of Are You Smarter Than John Noe? follows, where our own John takes on some of our live listeners on some tricky Harry Potter trivia.  Finally, the drums bring the close of the show along with talk of John's Chipotle Alliance and Frak's various (and abundant) impersonations.  Don't forget, registration for LeakyCon 2009 is set to close soon!  Register for LeakyCon here!  To listen, just hit the "Play" button on the right side of the page (->), or use iTunes, or direct download.

Just downloaded it! =) I was at the live recording of this, and it was such a good show! Frak’s voices are hilarious – I can’t remember the last time I laughed that hard… Looking forward to hearing it again!

Frak’s voice of Golum is hilarious. I can do it too. It used to be like Stitch from Lelo and Stitch, but now it has “evolved” to be Golum.

Hey guys——-I actually went to this a few years ago—-it was on the Warner Bros. Studios lot in LA. I sat on the stool and got ‘sorted’ too—-it used the “ha! another weasley! I know just what to do with you….GRYFFINDOR!” for me which is great b/c im a redhead so i could be a weasley. anyway they had the voldemort costume from the forbidden forest scene in the first movie, a ford anglia, aragog, quidditch robes and McGonagal’s robe; wands, models of the castle, omigod it was so cool but i was really young so i didn’t really remember it!
