The Witching Hour

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? How has it shaped your relationship with Harry Potter?

It’s been a while!

After the social media mania that was LeakyCon 2012, we’ve kind of left our dear readers hangin’. We’re so sorry about that. We love and miss you all very much. There’s just this thing called Mehera’s moving to China today, Claire’s studying abroad in Spain, and well Sara’s primary excuse is her job. 

Also, while we’re all apart, The Witching Hour is currently off the air. That’s right, for the first time since January 2010, TWHis not playing on KWCW 90.5 FM Walla Walla. Which means those magical moments in the studio aren’t getting converted into podcasts for all our beautiful fans in Kentucky, Slovenia and beyond. 

But it’s not the end! Keep brewing those Pottermore potions, reading those new copies of The Casual Vacancy and reblogging those COS gifs. Because Claire will be back for you in a few short months, and 2/3 of us have already signed up for Leaky 2013 in Portland. (Meet us there?) 

In the past we’ve discussed doing more mixtapes or starting a vlog. We don’t want to make too many promises, but I (Sara) would definitely enjoy doing so if we can find the time, and if you wizards are interested. 

So keep those chins up and those wands at the ready. You don’t want to lose your buttocks while we’re away.

Love,
TWH 

PS. Sara’s going to be doing some file transferring over the next few months, so you might notice some missing episodes. They’ll be back up and available on iTunes as soon as our storage limit allows!

We shared our hostel with four totally awesome girls from the four different Houses and four different countries: the Canadian Gryffindor, the Australian Hufflepuff, the American Ravenclaw, and the German Slytherin. They bonded like glue and LeakyCon and are now going to start a vlog to stay in touch until they see each other again next year at Leaky 2013. Too cute. Follow their adventures at fourfriendlyhouses on YouTube!!

No words.

Just naps.
