In the muggle world I am an equine veterinarian so I spend a lot of time driving from farm to farm. The Real Weird Sisters have made some long drives more enjoyable! They are very knowledgeable on all things Harry Potter and they have a witty-banter that can easily captivate an audience. Great job Sisters! I would recommend this podcast to all Harry Potter fans, especial those who LOVE MAGIC.

This podcast is potter perfect!!!

Yet another cheery chapter to brighten your Monday! Harry finally gets the savage pleasure of finding out the “truth” that old Batty and Enid Smeek shared (willingly or not) with the world’s most reliable narrator, Rita Skeeter, and the truth is that Dumbledore shared a damn sight more with Gellert Grindelwald than he ever did with Harry. This super short chapter packs an emotional punch, leaving Alice and Martha admiring Hermione’s steadfastness and looking forward to Ron’s return.

This may be J.K. Rowling’s favorite film of the series (we have some theories as to why that is), but it is certainly none of ours. Nevertheless, we had a great time with Shandy of the Broadcast (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-broadcast/id1128235491?mt=2) dissecting everything about the sixth movie from the romances to the fiyah to the acting. Oh, and @ShutUpTim was there too.

While Ron continues to fail miserably at Quidditch, Harry continues to fail miserably at Occlumency, maybe because his visions make him feel special…important? However, it’s not all doom and gloom this chapter. Believe it or not, Harry’s interview with Rita sends the Quibbler to reprint faster than any previous issue, even those about Crumple-Horned Snorkacks! And Trelawney’s sacking leads to a game move only Dumbledore could pull off.

Podcast cover

Harry wallows in the wake of the Extendable Ears fiasco (this is exactly why Phineas Nigellus loathed being a teacher!) and comes up with some interesting theories about how exactly he might have attacked Mr. Weasley. Everyone forgets that Ginny almost died as a first year,  and Hermione gives up a really good skiing trip in order to calm them all down. While Mr. Weasley experiments with Muggle remedies and faces the wrath of Mrs. Weasley, Ron reckons with a possible diagnosis for the unsightly blemishes upon his visage. And finally, Alice and Martha find themselves lost for words regarding one of the series’ most depressing scenes.

Finally, with Slughorn’s original memory in hand, Dumbledore can tell Harry the truth. 100% of it! There’s nothing, absolutely nothing, that he’s keeping from Harry now. Alice and Martha debate the merits of censorship (and Alice seems suspiciously interested in learning more about exactly how to make a Horcrux) and the mathematics of splitting up a soul (again, Alice seems a little bit more intrigued than necessary). And most importantly, Dumbledore’s unexpected promise to Harry earns a snort of disapproval from Phineas Nigellus.

In one of the most suspenseful chapters of the series so far, Mr. Weasley’s life hangs in the balance as Harry struggles to convey just how serious the situation is (do they not realize how much a person bleeds when fangs that long pierce their side?). It’s a strange situation when Sirius behaves more maturely than Dumbledore, but that’s the world we’re living in these days. And finally, we get our first experience in St. Mungo’s, which proves to be more lighthearted than expected.

This is one of Voldemort’s weakest plans that should have never worked, but to Hermione’s surprise, Harry’s mistake was not failing to close his mind, but failing to learn what Parseltongue actually sounds like. This chapter is powerful stuff, and not even just for a house elf, sir.

But when they realize that the sword has been impregnated with basilisk venom, don’t expect Ron to be too happy – that’s just one more thing for them to add to the list. Don’t bother increasing the end of this chapter, it’s too depressing.

7.9 A Place to Hide

Podcast cover
Read more

The trio lands in the middle of London–but NOT on Shaftesbury Avenue–and Ron and Harry (or should we still be calling him Barny??) look extra cool in their dress robes. It’s a good thing that Hermione turns out to be more skilled at undetectable extension charms than she is at memory charms. As they search for a place to hide, there’s one location we know they definitely won’t end up: Grimmauld Place. Hopefully your jeans aren’t too tight and your cappuccino isn’t muck as you listen to this episode!

7.8 The Wedding

Podcast cover
Read more

Thanks to Cousin Barny’s outstanding attention span, this vunderful chapter is filled with beautiful wedding quotes, which are quite useful for social media posts when people you love get married! This chapter also brings the long-awaited introduction of the effervescent Auntie Muriel, charming family memories of old Uncle Bilius, and intriguing theories about Mr. Weasley’s possible extramarital activities. Hopefully you are wearing your sun colors for good luck; just don’t make the same mistake Xenophilius did when picking out his necklace, unless you want to get into it with Krum. Gregorovitch!

7.7 The Will of Albus Dumbledore

Podcast cover
Read more

Harry finally comes of age, so it’s time to really put his magic skillz to the test and make some stuff fly around the room! It’s also time to try out a few of the twelve fail-safe ways to charm witches on both of the Weasley women, though Ron and a certain tall, faceless, unpleasant stranger might have something to say about that. In discussing the chapter, Martha uncovers Harry’s true signature move (spoiler: it isn’t Expelliarmus) and someone (who could it be??) might end up shedding a few tears.

7.6 The Ghoul in Pajamas

Podcast cover
Read more

Harry’s struggle with his savior complex has never been more real, and there’s just no time for anything so completely trivial as vol-au-vents or weddings! Unfortunately for him, Mrs. Weasley (whose eyes are the exact shade of Ginny’s, coincidentally) has other plans for everyone, which do not include magically-altered motorbikes or plotting Voldemort’s demise. We hope this episode makes you laugh maniacally rather than giving you an expression appropriate to the sickbed of a close friend!

7.5 Fallen Warrior

Podcast cover
Read more

Martha may not be as excited about this week’s chapter art as she was last week, but the characters do remind us of a certain Hundred Acre Wood character, to everyone’s surprise! Also included this week are the many things we “do like,” Harry mistaking Andromeda for Bellatrix (even though she isn’t singing), and imagined last words for Dumbledore, because we just aren’t buying the ones Lupin and Kingsley claimed. Finally, we stumble upon the very important question of why more wizards aren’t intentionally bald as a protection against Polyjuice impersonation.

7.4 The Seven Potters

The moment we’ve all been dreading has finally arrived, so have a seat on the washing machine, pour yourself a tall glass of Harry-flavored Polyjuice Potion (it’s much tastier than Crabbe and Goyle!) and drink to our poor sweet girl, the true fallen warrior, queen of our hearts, Hedwig. We’re really going to miss her as she goes off on her new adventure of happily exploring the world and staying safe from danger!
