Sadly, Claire is not with us this week as she has a nasty cold. Covering for her place will be Rubeus Hagrid, Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts!! lol jk we wish. This week we bring you all our favorite songs about magical creatures in the Potterverse, as well as a few of the wizards who had particular attachments to them. We have Newt Scamander’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on hand, so we’ve read excerpts from some of our favorite animals’ entries. From Acromantulas to Unicorns, Grindelows to Pixies, Nifflers to Trolls, from Owls to Thestrals—we’ve got you covered! Like the saying goes… Hagrid the giant has a posse. A posse of dangerous but awesome critters.

AKA, The Episode Wherein We’re Obsessed with the 8th Horcrux. It’s our semi-annual wrock wrendition episode! This time ‘round, we came across the Kansas-based duo The 8th Horcrux. As obsessed as we are with what we’ve termed “wrock wrenditions”—that is, wizard versions of popular muggle songs—we were delighted to discover that they exclusively perform these sorts of covers. And they’re damn good at it, too!

But of course, we couldn’t ignore our other old favorites, so you can catch some of the All You Need is (Wizard) Love album as well as tracks from DATM, Catchlove and ALL CAPS.
