Rank #1: Episode 58 - Umbridge too Far
Rank #2: Episode 37 - Take my Wifi... Please!
Hey folks! Intern Ethan here, and it looks like I've done it again! Some would say it hasn't been a good first month. Due to technical difficulties that I'm going to blame on magical interference, Katie will be extra quiet this time. And there was much rejoicing, am i right? But without further ado...
MISCHIEF MANAGED PODCAST!
It's episode 37 and kittens are in the air (figuratively). They talk fast and the furious again and the newest batch of Mischief Managed brand kitty cats. Then it's on to the Meet your Messrs segment where they augment their respective common rooms. Laura's is a joke, Kate is lazy and cold, Craig is a genius, and Katie can't make up her damn mind. Next its on to the way-too-appropriate topic: Technology in the Magical world. What are the rules? They don't know. Now better put your ickle firsties to bed, this one gets real adult! After the Messrs have sorted out nothing, it's on to a recap with Devon, marking his journey through the books. They talk Triwizard Tasks and character flaws. Then it's an eerily sympathetic quiz, a Slytherin Emperor, an Underrated pet, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that may seem familiar. Curl up with a mug of Earl Grey, hot, and enjoy!

Rank #3: Episode 64 - Operation Freedom Dream
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.
Rank #4: Episode 44 - Was All Well?!?
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?
Rank #5: Episode 63 - Clothes Minded
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 shit your pants.
Rank #6: Episode 50 - It was like having Friends
Rank #7: Episode 32 - Mighty Morphing Nymphadora
We're back with a super casual Mischief Managed Podcast. Just what the Healer ordered! We chat about dogs, sorbet, and Beauty and the Beast. Next, we move on to a listener-suggested Meet Your Podcasters question that asks us "Where in the Magical world would we like to visit?". Kate chills with criminals, Craig time travels, Katie picks 5 places, and I forget Laura's answer. I bet it was good though. Our topic this episode is our dearly departed Tonks (and metamorphmagi in general) We talk transfiguration, X-Men, female empowerment, and shit about the Cursed Child. Next we have a Quizengamot by Laura, an Underrated drool-factory, a morphing Cast Away, a singing Slytherin, and a Wed/Bed/Dead with a few wild dudes.
Rank #8: Episode 51 - What's the Point?
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).
Rank #9: Episode 66 - Every Flavour Beans
Rank #10: Episode 68 - Starry Potter
Rank #11: Episode 54 - Kidding Around
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!
Rank #12: Episode 45 - Sort it Out
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.
Rank #13: Episode 43 - Orange is the New Orange
EVERYBODY SHUT UP. We’ve got a special guest this ginger-filled episode, our lovely Rielle! We chat about her introduction to the series, her House journey, her patronus, and all about the magical Curiosa shop! We then move on to a Meet your Messrs question where we imagine what other jobs the Weasley family members would have. Craig pimps this question, Laura makes us laugh and cry, Katie wants someone to run the world, Kate is thinking “Royal Wedding”, and Rielle has a good answer. Then it’s on to our biggest, orangest, Wizarding family: The Malfoys! Omg, imagine? It’s the Weaselby’s! We discuss the Burrow, and Ron, and Ginny, and Ron, and ideal sibling order, and Ron, and Jack Black, and Ron. Then it’s on to a text-savvy Quizzero, a Cast-Away that leaves you little choice, a hilarious Slytherin, an all-too-familiar Underrated Character, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that get’s sloppy. Oh… Podcasting and Friday nights are a dangerous mix!
Rank #14: Episode 65 - Don't Quit your Day Job
It's a low-key, low-attendance sort of episode this time around. Without Kate and Laura, Katie and Craig are forced to be friends. We chat about our newest faves and why we are so alone. Next it's our Meet your Messrs question where we try to answer what we would be doing in the fandom if we didn't podcast. Katie still likes podcasting and Craig likes his shoes. Then it is on to our topic which is all about our experience podcasting for these past few years. We touch on the power of spite, CBC radio, and that we wish we did more research. After that, it's on to a Sith Cast-Away, a Slytherin Francaise, and a few Would You Rather's that are all over the god-damned map.
Rank #15: Episode 36 - It's a Map!
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.
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!
MMP and Intern Ethan
Rank #16: Episode 40 - Boo, You Horcrux...
Rank #17: Episode 18 - Magical Maladies and Where to Find Them
The two-week old weather report is here!! Maybe this will be the episode that we stop whining... Tune in to find out. #keepthesecrets We chat about Patreon and possible Mischief Managed events to come, like Live Shows and travelling. What a time to be alive! Our Meet Your Podcasters question is sent to us from an awesome Second Year and asks what our favourite teacher would be and what muggle subject they would teach. We discover that Kate was spoiled beyond all imagining, and Katie is still very jealous. Next we have our topic, which is all about magical illness and injury. It has the Mischief Managed trademark blend of seriousness and frivolity (PATENT PENDING). We discuss lycanthropia, midichlorians, chocolate, and wizard taxes. Next it's a sneering Craig's Casting Couch, an underrated green thumb, a salty Slytherin, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that heals all wounds.
