I just wanted to give you all an update about what’s going on over here at The Witching Hour- as a college radio show, we are on hiatus currently for summer vacation. However, we still have a few podcasts from Season 8 to edit and post, so those should be popping up throughout the summer! Come September, we will be back on air for Season 9 (wow that’s a large number), featuring Anu and our new witch Erin! Have a magical summer and let us know if you have any ideas for shows you’d like us to consider for the upcoming season!

Writing my last paper of college, ever. Listening to this, obviously. WIZ HOP IS IN.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Wizards can probably cure muggle poisons pretty easily? And that's why they need to create their own?
thewitchinghourkwcw thewitchinghourkwcw Said:

Good thinking! Anu the scientist says “that makes total sense.” Thanks for chiming in with your ideas! We love discussing this stuff.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Potions have required stirring with one's wand, so I think some magical ability is necessary to make them.
thewitchinghourkwcw thewitchinghourkwcw Said:

Good point, anon- but are there spells that they use while stirring? It seems like they would have mentioned them at some point? Or maybe its nonverbal magic.

We haven’t actually read this book. BUT, today we will be holding our much-anticipated SCIENCE SHOW! After all of the politics-y talk this season (and always) Anu will be gracing us with all of her scientific knowledge to talk about the interaction of magic and science in the Potter world! Tune in at 5pm PST! Also, we really want to read this book. If you have, let us know how it is!


  • German: Tom Vorlost Riddle → “ist Lord Voldemort” [Anon]
  • Hungarian: Tom Rowle Denem “nevem voldemort” [x]
  • Finnish: Tom Lomen Valedro → “Ma olen Voldemort” [x]
