This week features an in-depth discussion of blood politics in the Potterverse.
From pure bloods to Muggle borns, squibs to “half-breeds,” we look at how structural hierarchies in the wizarding world and Voldemort’s obsession with wizard “purity” create many of the same injustices that parallel the real world today.

With the recent (derp/kind of recent?) release of The Hunger Games, TWH has been thinking about the ways in which wrock fan-culture is branching out beyond the Potter fan culture and into other fandoms. This week, we play some meta-wrock (wrock that talks about the Harry Potter fandom), the HPA, the Imagine Better project, what Lionsgate needs to learn from Warner Brothers, DFTBA, Dr. Who/HP crossover and more. We also debut two songs about The Hunger Games by Alex Carpenter!
