It’s HP IRL! This week on the show we’re discussing Harry Potter in real life, based on our own experiences with fan conventions, movie premieres and midnight book releases, Harry Potter tourism and sightseeing, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida. We discuss the differences between experiencing Harry Potter fandom online, in person, or on your own. What’s been your experience of these things?

Dearest fans,

Today’s show will be a selection of the DJs’ favorite tunes and a reflection by Sara and Mehera on their favorite things about The Witching Hour. They also read their fake graduation speech, “Dragons,” aka “More WIZARDS.” We hope you enjoy. It’s our last-ever show on air, so don’t miss out.

The Witching Hour will return with more live shows in January 2013, hosted by Claire + a NEW DJ. Look for some mixtapes over the next six months. In the meantime, we will miss you all more than we can say. We love you, dear fans.
