PotterCast 243: Pick on Pottermore
October 08, 2011, 10:22 PM
PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is back with a brand new episode of over an hour of Harry Potter news, discussion, and fun with hosts Melissa, John, and Frak! In this episode, the Trio delve into the latest news, including the Quidditch World Cup, Dan Radcliffe and J.K. Rowling's interview on the "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" DVD, our LeakyNews.com website, and, of course, Pottermore. The rest of this episode features the first of what are to be many discussions on Pottermore. The Trio talks about the look of the site, the beta testing process, getting sorted, what each of our hosts likes in on the site, and a whole lot more. To listen, you can use iTunes or direct download -- you don't need to own an iPod to
listen to PotterCast.
Sooo the Leaky gathering at the Studios, can that happen? On opening day? =D I know tickets are going on sale sharpish so it might be a bit difficult to organise… I don’t know whether they’re expecting to sell out of opening day tickets on Monday when they do the Facebook pre-sale… But I’m trying for opening day & would love to have a fandom thing going on!
I think the delay of releasing the books on pottermore is because they want to focus on everyone getting in and having a good experience on the site. that was my impression, at least. I’m thinking it was potentially a response to claims that pottermore is only a big rouse to make more money off of ebooks.
also- eep, Frak, that person on twitter might have been me… D: It was a very stressful week- it was hard for y’all to wait two days, it was even harder for the rest of us to wait more than a week (for many people several weeks!) I wasn’t actually mad… I was… stressed. haha.
