This is hands down one of the best Harry Potter podcasts. I’ve listened to a bunch of them, and this is the best of them all. I’m not a fan of the re-read HP podcasts, and this group of friends has mastered the art of talking about HP and making it fun, interesting, and relevant. This Hufflepuff is super happy to have these guys in my ear holes 💛🖤

Love!

No Comment
Bonjour, my pals. Welcome to another episode of Mischief Managed Podcast! In our intro, we talk about Love Day, sloths, and jam (maybe a little Potter news as well). Then it's on to our Meet your Messrs question where we choose who else would be a good main character in the Harry Potter series. Katie barely chooses, Laura wants a brainy POV, Craig likes Giants, and Kate wins. Then we move on to our Topic: Aurelius Dumbledore and the clusterfuck it symbolizes. We chat about fan theories, obscuruses, confusing family trees, along with many gripes. Then it's on to a very Ravenclaw Quizlaur, an upbeat Gryffindor, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that is both nice and sad.

Hello and welcome to another episode of Mischief Managed! This episode we begin with some pressing HP news (involving a certain car franchise. Wiiiiiiiink), becoming a second aunt, and how deeply cold it has been. Next we move on to our Meet Your Messrs question which asks "Which character (who has never been a teacher) would you want to teach a class at Hogwarts?". Then it's on to our main topic, which is all about Minerva McGonagall! The bad ass in the green cloak. Next, we move on to a Quizzle, a priestly Slytherin, a duo to Cast Away, and a Marry Both Kill that's a bit of a stretch. Love MMP

Where is the Greater Good?
Welcome to another episode of Mischief Managed Podcast! We begin the episode with Holiday wishes and a big serving of humble pie to two of the Messrs. Too much confidence is a dangerous thing. Next it's on to a Meet your Messrs question that has been a bit mutated. We answer which X-Men-esque powers featured in CoG would we choose: Maledictus, Legilimency, or impenetrable shield charm (but for evil). Laura knows what she wants, Katie is a good influence, Craig is good at trivia, and Kate likes Katie best. Then we continue to our Topic, a Character spotlight on Dumbledore and Grindelwald in Crimes of Grindelwald. We chat about casting, acting, plot, blood pacts, and more nonsense. Then it's on to a festive Quizzle, a Help-ful Cast Away, a Piggy Slytherin, and a Be/Banish/Befriend that is Fantastic.

Fight for their Rights
Oh hey, I didn't see you come in. Welcome to another episode of Mischief Managed Podcast! We bring you outdated Oscar speculation and plans for Laura's birthday. Then we're moving on to our Meet your Messrs question, where we answer how we would quit our jobs using magic. Kate gets a load off her chest, Katie gets fired, Craig is a ghost, and Laura sends farts. Next we have our topic which is about Creature Rights (in theory). Mostly we get confused about what a creature is and annoy Craig. Then it's on to a Quizzle you haff to love, a creature-friendly Cast Away, a ghoulish Ravenclaw, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that's a real coin toss.

Nobody's Prefect
Welcome to another episode of Mischief Managed Podcast. We have a special guest, our lovely Tess returns and brought an suspiciously quiet Thom along. We chat about some new Harry Potter questions that occur to us in these autumn years. Then it's on to our Meet your Messrs question where we try to assign a genre of music to our respective Houses. Tess uses her wit, Laura is deeply angry and smart, Craig skips, Katie smashes ladies, and Kate fights for her rights. We continue (as you knew we would) to our topic of the episode: Percy Weasley. We chat about his family life, emotional intelligence, and Kate breaks out in emotions. Then, we FINALLY do a quizzle again now that all four Houses are present. There's a Trek-ish Cast Away, a Gossipy Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill you'll really get to chomp through.

Childishness is next to Godliness
We have a familiar sounding special Guest this episode, James! We talk about his journey into Potter and read the wonderful robotically crafted chapter of HP fan fic. Beef women, amirite? Next for our Meet your Messrs question, we try to imagine ourselves as the bad guys. Kate is on brand, Katie shouldn’t teach, James goes for the big bad, and Craig traps Katie. Then it’s on to our topic: Child stars of Harry Potter. We discuss acting ability, casting choice, surprising level-headedness, and what they’re doing now. Then it’s on to an arresting Quizzle, a stand-up Slytherin, a tricky Cast Away, a ye olde Underrated Character, and a Marry/Boff/Kill of pretty ladies. In the end, we introduce Jess (FINALLY) and finish with some Scots!

Low and Slow
Welcome to another episode of Mischief Managed with a brand new guest, Maria! We begin by getting to know her Potter journey, some odd math and nightmares, then we move on to the world of fashion and culture (Craig's fave). Next we move on to our Meet your Messrs question that asks us to create our own Quidditch team. Laura has some word play, Craig is super gross, Katie is unimaginative, Kate wants to kill us all, and Maria gets granular. We then make it to our topic, which is all about Harry Potter games. We talk about sandwiches, video games, board games, card games, and games that have not yet come to pass. Then it's on to our penultimate Scottish Quick Quotes Quiz, a Masterful Cast-Away switcheroo, a Happy Hufflepuff switcheroo, an Underrated Constellation switcheroo, and a Mysterious Marry/Boff/Kill.

That ham, though.
Welcome back to another episode of Mischief Managed Podcast! Craig is a sick boy, so the lady-messrs are out to play. And by play, we mean talk about Sabrina. We chat about upcoming Quidditch regionals and a certain legalization that occurred in our homeland. Next it's on to our Meet your Messrs question, where we give you a little teaser about our favourite and least favourite thing in the first Harry Potter movie. Craig calls in sick, Laura's is up our Alley, Kate's got crushes, and Katie likes it by the book. Then, we move on to our first in this series of movie reviews. We talk about the Philosopher's Stone, how we first saw it, how our perspectives have changed, what happened to the Potions riddle scene, and Dumbledore's mic drop. If you're anxious to hear the play-by-play, subscribe to our Patreon for our Philosopher's Stone commentary (arriving soon!). After that, we move on to an on-theme Cast Away, a Friendly Slytherin, an Un-Purr-rated Character, and a Kindly Marry/Boff/Kill variant that will give you new life.

it's 100% about immigration
We begin with Russia, of course. Then we go into a deep dive on the Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery mobile game. Let's just say it takes a lot of energy. Then it's on to our Meet your Messrs question which asks us what muggle board game we would introduce to our common rooms. Then it's on to our Topic? I guess? We chat about immigration in the Wizarding world, refugees, and the Lion King. Next it's on to another Scots Quizzle, an guest-ish Underrated Character, a Mean Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that is probably really good.

We have a grand ole time for you today! Our beloved Jamie is back and we talk about the Symphony, shuffling audiobooks, and the ultimate hybrid quiz. We also describe Jamie's gestures, which is entertaining for us and hopefully for you. Then we put on our proverbial marketing hats in order to rebrand our Houses for our Meet your Messrs segment. Katie makes the Slytherins laugh again, Jamie thinks Gryffindors should chill, Craig wants Hufflepuff to say "Fuck it", and Laura gets creative. Then it's on to our topic of the day which is Horcruxes, and guys... WE GO DEEP. It's a wonderfully complex topic as we dive into chronology, the specifics of horcrux making, and Jamie's sound effects. Then it's on to a double quizzle (because Katie is a jerk), a venerable Cast Away, a young Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that takes us to Ogdenville!

Our House Cup Runneth Over…
It’s a classic MMP with all the Messrs! Laura has seen some Holiday Royalty, Kate still likes Riverdale, and we are solidly “Meh” on Justice League. We touch on the controversial casting and J.K.’s defence before moving on to our Meet your Messrs question. This episode we discuss our pet peeves in the book series. Only Laura understands the question, so points to Ravenclaw! A smooth as hell segue brings us to our topic: The House Points system. How do you get them? Can we accurately describe a cool infogram? What about chocolate? Etc? Next we move on to a woodsy Quizzle, a musical Slytherin, a festive Underrated Character, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that’s all about Head(s).

Back for more, I see! This time on Mischief Managed, we pick our subjects at Hogwarts in Meet Your Podcasters, and finally ask the big question, "Are Mennonites Wizards?". Yes, we only tackle the important stuff here! Next up, there's some rampant speculation about Muggleborns in Hogwarts which eventually leads to "what did wizard kids do before going to school?". Craig laments his lost dreams of the NHL and Kate thinks Maths are a joke. Then it's our snappy segments, including: Quiz by Craig, an underrated hottie, a heroic Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that will make you throw up in your mouth a little bit!

Holiday Episode? No, Topic Down!
It’s a cozy day in the not too distant past, and the Messrs gathered to bring you some Holiday cheer! Hurry before Kate falls asleep! We have a short intro, but you know what they say, “No news is good podcasting!” I’m pretty sure I’ve got that right. We move on to a very in-depth Meet your Messrs question, in which we Found a 5th House in Hogwarts. Craig is a Northern loner, Laura likes the moon, Kate likes everything, and Katie is a hidden loner. There is no topic today, because the Messrs need a break, too! So we skip on down to a nerve-racking Quizzle, a kindly Cast Away, a Golden Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill/Secret Santa that pits four festive pals against each other. Merry Everyone!

Embrace the Viscosity
Welcome to another episode of Mischief Managed Podcast. Kate is mysteriously absent and that leaves two empty, human-shaped husks, and a very sick Laura. We're doing fine, guys. No need to send help. None, at all. We kick off the episode by talking about the Transfigured Town festival in Blyth, Ontario that we'll be attending THIS WEEKEND! Bonnie Wright will be there and Craig will officially get older. We also make a super cool segue from discussing Evanna Lynch's Dancing with the Stars debut, to our Meet your Messrs question: Which character/actor would you pick as your DWTS partner? Katie has a pity pick, Laura's is good at things, and Craig is in it to win it. Then it's on to our Topic which is all about Lavender Brown. We chat about femininity, casting controversy, and being embarrassing. Next it's on to a Canadian Content Cast Away, a Dead Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that'll drive you off the deep end.

Good morning. Welcome to another episode of Mischief Managed Podcast! There's a new Fantastic Beasts, Crimes of Grindelwald trailer from SDCC and we dive right in with an intro/Meet your Messrs crossover. We chat about what excites us the most, what it means for the series, and also those cat things! Then it's on to our topic where we contrast and compare the two reigning Ministers for Magic in the HP series: Fudge and Scrimgeour. We talk about etymology, governing styles, and sneaking around Comic Con. Then it's on to NOT a quizzle as Gryffindor is not represented, a Giant Cast Away, a Mad Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that requires supervision.

Get ready for some Epi-lols...
Happy 19 years later, everyone! The Mischief Managed Messrs chat about the 2-week-old weather report, guesting on Geektropolis, the Blyth festival, and Fan Expo, all while having some treats off the Trolley. Then for our Meet your Messrs question we try to answer what animagus we would choose to be and our Marauders-Style nickname. Craigs answer tickles Kate, Kate impresses Americans, Katie is concerned with food, and Laura just wants to stay in her pjs. Our topic is all about speculating what happened to our beloved characters between the end of the book and the beginning of the Epilogue. How was Hogwarts rebuilt? Can Kate do math? What was Harry’s exact schedule? Do we like the Robert Galbraith books? Did Draco go to jail? What colour is Victoire’s hair?! Had enough questions? TOO DAMN BAD. Next we go on to a sneaky quiz that has a big bonus fudge-up, a Pottermore quiz that we tackle as a team, a Love-ly Slytherin, an Underrated Charact-auror, and a boozy Marry/Boff/Kill/and Befriend?

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, so... Let's just be friends, ok? JK, we love you forever. For our intro we hear all about Laura and Craig's magical trip to Orlando. They talk about dragon fire, the Hulk, and wands. Kate and Katie are jealous. Our topical Meet Your Podcasters question is all about Black Friday for wizards and Katie makes a terrible mistake. The topic for this episode is a character SHHHPOTLIGHT on Professor Remus Lupin. We talk in depth about his character and parts left out of the books. Here is where the feelings come out to play. We love Lupin. Next, it's a Cast Away that's oddly familiar, a Hollow Slytherin, a game of Bean roulette, knightly underrated character(s), and a Marry/Boff/Kill that doubles our disappointment.

On our Meet Your Podcaster's we talk quidditch. We agree that quaffle and bludger are funny words. Then it's straight into our topic in which we discuss Book Ginny vs. Movie Ginny. Did you want to hear us say "fleshed out" again? Me neither, but what can you do? And much to Katie's dismay, Craig is still obsessed with a certain character's moustache. Next up, Laura has a moment of Pottermore vindication and we talk common rooms and hybrids. We quiz, we appreciate, we slither; you know the drill! And finally a Marry/Boff/Kill that is a little hard on the old heart!

Take Two
It’s deja vu city at Mischief Managed Headquarters as we record half the episode a second time (because of failure). We laugh about it because we are strong. We quickly discuss the game play that we’ve seen so far from Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery and speculate accordingly. Then it’s on to our Meet your Messrs question that comes straight from the Craig’s mouth: “What current/future muggle technology would you be excited about as a Witch or Wizard?”. Laura boldly goes, Katie likes limbs, Craig likes alien, and Kate has 7 answers. Then it’s on to the controversial topic of David Yates comments concerning Dumbledore’s sexuality in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts film. We try to take a calm look at this issue by discussing the importance of representation, the politics of the film industry, our head cannons, and how much uncertainty there still is. Then it’s on to a double Quiz, a SUPER SEXY Cast Away (seriously, look it up), a medical Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that is queer as f&*k. Enjoy the Katie and Craig Friendship Hour!
