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.
