The Witching Hour is a wizard rock radio programme. During regular seasons it airs on the Whitman College radio station, 90.5 FM Walla Walla, and streams online at KWCW.net. Find us on Facebook, on Twitter, or in iTunes!
Episode 1 of season 7 will be up either later tonight or tomorrow morning. And then (because editing it took WAY less time than what I expected given the insane amount of procrastination I did on it) I’m hoping to get an episode or two out each week until they’re caught up/the season is over. I’m probably going to be putting them up in whatever order I feel like, so maybe give it a couple weeks?
Thanks for listening! :)
Yep, there’s fanfiction about this: http://archiveofourown.org/tags/Minerva%20McGonagall*s*Poppy%20Pomfrey/works
I definitely think it could (and should!) be a thing.
I think it’s also a very interesting idea since it is so much easier for witches and wizards to change their appearances at will than it is for muggles- there’s polyjuice of course, but also lots of different human transfigurations, charms, etc… I think the experience of a trans* witch or wizard would be in some ways pretty unique.
Of course, there’s also the problem with the very gender-binary paradigm of “witch or wizard,” which I think we’ve mentioned on the show before… what would a more gender neutral name or pronoun be? Any ideas, dear listeners? Let us know what you guys think about this!

There really has been a lot written about the two of them as a pair! I’m not sure if this is the essay you’re referring to, but there was a great editorial on Mugglenet a couple of months ago about Remus/Sirius and the lack of queer relationships in Harry Potter in general that I really enjoyed reading!

If you were referring to a different essay, we’d love to read it- send it our way!
We were feeling lacking on fun Ravenclaw tunes a few weeks ago- but you’re totally right, this is such a fun song! Everybody should go listen to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZBCVrXfVUw
playing it now!!
Thanks for the suggestion! Of course- tune into today’s show (or the forthcoming podcast) and you just might hear it!
