Rank #1: Episode 77 - Dumblewald
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.

Rank #2: Episode 46 - The Quadwizard Tournament
EGG-celent! De-LAKE-ful! A-MAZE-ing! Guys, Helium is fun. The Messrs are high on life in this intro and we have giggles with some Harry Potter quotes. Next we talk about the new extreme sport: sorting yourself multiple times on Pottermore. It’s a lot scarier than you’d think! Next it’s on to our Meet Your Messrs question where we all try to create a Triwizard Task. Craig wants a Battle Royale, Katie wants logic, Laura wants to make potions, and Kate stays on brand. We naturally progress into our Topic, which is the Triwizard Tournament. We question the logistics, fairness, child endangerment, Christmas food, and what the Goblet knew! And Kate thinks it’s “magicized”. Then it’s a Quidditch Quizzle, a Dope Cast Away, a Smoking Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill where we judge the Judges. Blehcky.
Rank #3: Episode 44 - Was All Well?!?
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? Love MMP
Rank #4: Episode 52 - The House that Dumbs Built
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! Love MMP
Rank #5: Episode 49 - Elf-Centered
Sock it to me! Craig and Laura are off having the TIME OF THEIR LIVES gallivanting across the UK, but DON’T FRET- we brought in the BEST NEW CRAIG AND LAURA! Charlie and Emily are amazing and talented guest additions (seriously, check out their personal creations) and the beautiful, dreamy, special Jamie joins us once again as well! We learn how our new friends got into Harry Potter, their houses n’ hybrids, find out who is Fantastic Beasts and Cursed Child free (!), and are introduced to Jamie’s true job in life- Career in Human. We move on to meet our fancy messers with a question from a Slytherin fan about where in the Harry Potter world would we live? Katie justly cheats with a smart answer, Charlie is logical, Jamie basically goes home, Kate is obvious, and Emily is cozy. Basically, we all win- ONTO THE TOPIC! What’s up with those House Elves, eh? What are they doin’? Where did Spew end up? Does Hermione actually have a flaw?!? We get a bit deep and a bit sad, but round it out in the end with some much needed House Elf love. Oh, Dobby. What a tennis-ball-eyed gem. Then Jamie stumps us all (well, maybe not Katie), we love on a giggly, hormonal, character, learn about a funny, new bookie Slytherin (who’s an actual wizard!), and finish off with a privileged-based MFK. OH AND GUESS WHAT, SOMEONE HERE AUDITIONED FOR THE FILMS. Stick around to hear the story and some great acting skills! Love MMP
Rank #6: Episode 69 - Percy? We barely know He!
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. Love MMP
Rank #7: Episode 59 - Millennial Falcon
Avocado Kedavra! It's a rainy Easter day and the Messrs are ready to talk about Harry Potter, eventually. We make our way towards our Meat your Mates where we answer what we would teach wizards and witches about the muggle world. Laura doesn't want to do anything, Katie wants to think it through, Kate wants to inspire, and Craig hands out condoms. Next it's on to our topic: How the Millennial generation would have affected the Wizarding World. We chat about avocados, psychopaths, and craft butterbeer. Then it's on to our super Scots Quizzle, a Rosy Slytherin, a Cursed Underrated Character, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that really kicks into gear. That's a good joke. Love MMP
Rank #8: Episode 64 - Operation Freedom Dream
Pride and Non-Prejudice Happy Pride Month to you all! It's another episode of Mischief Managed Podcast with our lovely semi-guest, Jamie. We chat about Miniatures/Bigatures, where Palm Springs really is, and how much we listen to Stephen Fry's voice. Then we go on to a Meet your Messrs question where we get rid of an existing Hogwarts rule or create a new one. Jamie wants dogs, Kate casts a Protective charm, Craig wants magic everywhere, and Katie doesn't want to go to bed. Now we move on to our topic discussion about LGBTQ+ in the Harry Potter world. We talk about the context of Harry Potter when it was written vs our sensibilities today, gender in the Wizarding World, and opportunities for representation. Afterwards, it's on to a smooching Quiz, a many-peopled Cast Away, a short and sweet Slytherin, and a Polyjuiced Marry/Boff/Kill that really, really sucks. Love, MMP
Rank #9: Episode 63 - Clothes Minded
Fashionable and Furious It's another episode! Hurray! We give the two week old weather report and the one week old birthday report. Then it's on to our Meet your Messrs question where we try to think of Harry Potter merch that we wish existed. Craig wants to disappear, Kate wants to be crushed and then disappear, Laura and Katie like original Ravenclaws. Next it's on to our topic: Fashion in Harry Potter. We talk about best and worst dressed, Yule Ball problems, Death Masks, and the Roaring Twenties. Then it's on to our Ultimate Scots quiz (we promise), a Blonde Slytherin, an Underrated Seamstress, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that'll make you s**t your pants. Love MMP
Rank #10: Episode 36 - It's a Map!
Hey folks! Intern Ethan here, and my very first job for Mischief Managed Podcast is to write the "Blurb" for the new episode! I'm super excited even though I don't know what "Blurb" means! Down to business. We open on a soft meadow, the meter high grass rustles against an unusually warm Autumn breeze. Four Podcasters can be seen advancing, silhouetted against the glow from a blinding sunrise. They are.... MISCHIEF MANAGED PODCAST! This is episode 36 in their journey through the magical realm of Harry Potter! First off they welcome Kate back with open arms from her journey abroad. I hope you ordered Ketchup with this podcast because there is lots to get Kate caught up with! The newly dubbed "Meet Your Messrs" pits Hogwarts teachers against the trials of protecting the Philosopher's Stone. Who would keep the prize safe longest? Let us know! Lost already? Well don't worry, we have a map for that! As well as a topic all about a certain magical object. Next we get caught up with Devon, who is most perturbed about the lack of electricity in the magical world and just wishes nothing but happy endings for plucky young Harry. Our Casting Couch may get off to a rocky start but Craig's choice gets vindicated by the end. The most suggested Slytherin finally gets her day, it may be high time for Ms. Ritter to get sorted. Please let us know your results! With Kate back, Underrated Character is unearthed and it's sort of good. Hats off to you Kate. A listener suggestion is in order for Marry, Boff, Kill that gets three out of four stars. Finally, the Podcasters hope for a crossover episode and a trip to LA, as well as planning a Fast and Furious marathon...I thought this was supposed to be about Harry Potter... Hope you Enjoy! Love, MMP and Intern Ethan
Rank #11: Episode 39 - The Great Escapism
Happiness can be found in the darkest of places... We begin by plotting Kate's new apartment, talking about friends who are just getting into Harry Potter, and Neeeeeeeeeeeerds. Which One? Now get ready for some unfortunate acronyms, it's time for our Meet your Messrs question, "Which magical creature would you SPEW?". Craig wins "Worst Human" award and Kate chooses three. Then we move on to our topic which is all about using Harry Potter as a coping mechanism and the benefits of escapism through fantasy. We begin in broad strokes, get a little personal, and hear from some of our listeners. PS we love Harry Potter. Then it's on to a quiz that everyone wins, a spicy Cast Away, A surviving Slytherin, a breezy Underrated Character, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that involves a pretty neck. Love, MMP
Rank #12: Episode 33 - Memory Glands
copy paste it, check that cut and save it, load it dip in, now re-watch it Boy are we all in for a treat! Our first ever guest, Stef is back and she treats us well. With Doughnuts! Kate's away on vacay so we chat about everything except Harry Potter for our intro! She usually keeps us in line. Next it's on to a Meet Your Podcasters question that gets us to be creative with wand-lore. For our topic, we delve into Pensieves and things get complicated real quick. We touch on crime solving, virtual reality, dream journals, disease, and the age old "copy or cut" debate. Then it's time to check in with our newly Pottering Devon for an update on his book journey. A quiz by our guest, a Canadian Cast Away, a sluethy Slytherin, and a new twist on our Marry/Boff/Kill that circumvents that whole bestiality thing. See You Later, Bye!
Rank #13: Episode 29 - Slash-(fic) and Burn
Welcome to our Valentines Day Episode of Mischief Managed, featuring a story about Craig alone at a Harry Potter party. We imagine who we would have sent Dwarf Valentines a la Lockhart for our Meet Your Podcasters question, and Craig wins us all over for once. Our sexy topic is all about loooooooooove; particularly the weird world of Slash-Fic in the Harry Potter universe. There are plenty of groans, squeals, and male pregnancy to go around! Then it's a tricky Quizzle, an underrated Ravenclaw, a political Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that's pretty hard on an old flame. Happy Love Day, everyone! Tweet us @mischiefpodcast, instagram us @mischiefmanagedpodcast, and find us on facebook!
Rank #14: Episode 71 - Live, Laugh, Lav
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. Love MMP
Rank #15: Episode 45 - Sort it Out
Cut my school into pieces... This is my last re-sort. Welcome to Craig's birthday! It's a fine Friday for podcasting and we get to all of your favourite reports. For our Meet Your Messrs question, we speculate on what our polyjuice potion would look and taste like. Katie is bitter and cold, Craig's is hard to define, Kate's is fresh to death, and Laura's is basic. Then it's on to our topic of Sorting! Get ready for a wild ride of fan theories, personal theories, AND we finally get to talk about bar graphs! Next it's a mental Quiz, a catch up with Devon, a ReSorted ReCast, a Slytherinish Slytherin, an underrated creature, and a Be/Banish/Befriend that is pretty domestic. Love MMP
Rank #16: Episode 60 - I've Got a Theory
We got your brain scritches, babes! Oh guys, I'm so tired. This humble dummy left it too long and I'm an exhausted idiot, so my usually delightful summary won't be up to snuff tonight. I know you will forgive me tacitly by watching the episode anyways! We chat about the mobile game release and horrible weather. The Meet your Messrs question is about where we would like to be Storm Stayed in the magical world. The topic is all about the best and worst fan theories we could find. We talk about a magical switcheroo that doesn't make much sense, Crookshanks' past, and who is a babe. Next it's on to a Quibble that I can't really remember right now (but I think it was Scottish), a super Cast Away, a Trekking Slytherin, and a classic Marry/Boff/Kill that is good, in theory. Thanks for 60 episodes, you cute pieces of joy. Love MMP
Rank #17: Episode 16 - Keep it Secret, Keep it Safe...
No spoilerz A recipe for a great podcast: Take four pals, turn up the heat, add fans, liberally apply margaritas and watermelon, then bake for ten hours. Enjoy! The Mischief Managed squad starts off with some giggles and mispronunciations. What else is new? Our Meet Your Podcasters question is a twist on a listener suggestion that really has us GOING PLACES. Next it’s on to our non-spoiler review of The Cursed Child. The feelings are many and cover Ron's entire emotional spectrum. If you subscribe to our Patreon, you can check out our spoiler review in a week!!! #extortion Then we pick ourselves up and have a quiz. Next, we’ve got our first listener suggested Slytherin that is also our first hybrid, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that will have you reaching for a stiff drink.
Rank #18: Episode 24 - Remus? You barely know us!
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.
Rank #19: Episode 28 - Mischief-Hood of the Travelling Podcasts
We start off in a sleepy, after-brunch trance. And maybe that's how we finish, too! We have been on tv so that's mostly what we talk about. Our Meet Your Podcasters question is, "What spell would we choose if we could only use one for the rest of our lives". We have a very co-operative solution although there is some debate when it comes to disapparation or patroni. Gonna have to listen to find out! ;) Then it's our interview with Morgan from InnerSpace. She gives us some insight and the inside scoop on all things fandom, while keeping us all comfy! Not an easy feat! Then we quiz, we have a retro Cast Away, an Underrated Character in the city, a musical Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that pulls a lot of the focus. Tweet us @mischiefpodcast, instagram us @mischiefmanagedpodcast, and find us on facebook!
Rank #20: Episode 15 - Why the Long Bottom?
Neville you glad? Our fantastic co-creator Erin joins us once more! It’s entirely possible that we bribed her with the opportunity to talk about a certain special someone. After a super-quick intro, we begin with a listener suggestion for the Meet Your Podcasters. Which listener, you ask? Well, we ask the same thing. How mysterious! The question of the day is, “How would you have gotten past the dragon in the 1st Task of the Triwizard Tournament?” And one thing is for certain: Craig dies. Next, Erin teaches us all a thing or two about Neville Longbottom, and our hearts are touched. The cardigan-clad, toad-carrying HuffleDor is discussed thoroughly; as well as some interesting theorizing about Alternate Universes. WHO IS TREVOR? Then Craig skedaddles, but we press bravely on. We have a quiz, an underrated Hufflepuff, a magical Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that ruins friendships.
