Yer a Wizard, Harry – Book 4, Episode 6: The Portkey

By Sarah Tompkins on

This isn’t a podcast, it’s your one-touch ticket to Funtown! (Sorry for the nausea – portkey technology is a bit wonky.) This week, we meet Amos and Cedric Diggory (go Hufflepuff!), take a journey with an old boot and talk about maybe the most confounding form of wizard transport: the portkey. And with the Tri-Quizzard neck and …

By Sarah Tompkins on

Get your dueling table ready, listeners – this week we undermine Wizard-Muggle relations in the most delicious way possible.  This week, we explore the wonderful (and probably very dangerous) world of Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes and we ask a really hard-hitting question: Why are wizards so bad at dressing like muggles?

By Sarah Tompkins on

A long time ago, in a Wizarding School far, far in…the norths of Scotland(?), the heroes of our podcast joined together to bravely take on an entire world of magic – the Grim, the evil Dark Lord…and also some kind of gross jellybeans? This week, we consider removing all T’s from our vocabulary, try to …

By Sarah Tompkins on

Egads! Big revelations this week! This entire time, Yer a Wizard, Harry has been living as a podcast when really, WE’RE THREE PEOPLE STANDING ON EACH OTHER’S SHOULDERS UNDER A TRENCH COAT.  This week, the Quizzich Cup trudges (drunkenly) onward – do our heroes lose that spark? We also head down the rabbit hole – er, …
