Harmony? Romionie? We’re reacting to JK Rowling’s latest revelation and the swirling Skeeter-esque rumors and fandom uproar today on The Witching Hour at 5pm PST on the first episode of Season 8! Come listen to the debate- Claire and Anu may be taking sides.

So this is old news, but today we’re talking about the upcoming spinoff film written by Jo Rowling, based on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them! We also have a special guest - tune in to hear some tunes about magical creatures and three (!!) familiar voices!
