The latest episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is here for you today with its 204th edition of Potter fun, news, discussion, and more.  This week, Sue gives us the latest in the news including a Scream Award nomination for Miss Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Chamber of Secrets Extended Edition DVDs, artwork by J. K. Rowling and Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid) up for auction, the Half-Blood Prince Box Office totals, updates for the upcoming Deathly Hallows films, and an interview with actor Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy).  Next, Princely Pieces walks through the next part of the Half-Blood Prince film, where Harry is introduced to Professor Slughorn and finds out a little more about the battle he is facing.  The Mailbag makes its return for this week, where the PotterCasters answer some of the emails you've sent in.  From canon questions to film queries, Melissa, Sue, John, and Frak attempt to answer what is on your mind.  Finally, this episode wraps up with info on Melissa's AVON Walk for the Cure, the first round of donor shoutouts, and much more.

A big thank you goes out to Jason Munday from the Ministry of Magic for creating our new intro music!

As a reminder, the LeakyCon DVD, which will be available to pre-order soon, will also include all wizard rock performances from our conference.  If you like live wizard rock, be sure to reserve your copy of the upcoming LeakyCon Live Album of the wizard rock live shows at our LeakyCon 2009 conference.  To listen, just hit the "Play" button on the right side of the page (->), or use iTunes, or direct download.

Bits and Pieces? :)

Hey, re: the house elves, Hermione DOES try to free them by leaving out knitted clothing for them to pick up; that’s why Dobby ends up cleaning the common room by himself (as the other elves didn’t want to be “accidentally” freed).

Awesome as always! But WHEN will the bit-by-bits be coming back? I miss them. Great otherwise though.

Sue, never ever worry about bashing Gambon’s performance of Dumbledore. Bash early, bash often!! :)

Nice episode. I hope John puts up a blog or something for Potter Pundits soon. Thanks for all the hard work, guys!

Oh, and as a little side thing, I always thought the inferi were naked, too. For some reason, I just never pictured them as having clothing. I’m with Frak: I think the inferi are just misunderstood; dead corpses deserve clothes, too :P

Hey everyone! I’ve started a group to petition Warner Brothers to keep the Ron/Hermione kiss out of the trailer so that we can see it for the first time on release day. If you agree here’s the link to join!" also I’ve started an online petition, if you’d like to sign here’s the link- Have a magical day, Bec Majec
