If you are reading this: YOU HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED TO THE HOGWARTS SCHOOL OF WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY. Jk. But you have stumbled across our awesome Harry Potter Bookclub Podcast, which, let’s be real, is the next best thing.
Take a journey with us this week when MAYBE SOMEONE will FINALLY get a full point in the contentious Quizzich Cup, we talk about a whole bunch of mail, and learn about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (the one that is not hidden from Muggles).
Find us on Twitter at @potterpod, Tumblr at potterpod.tumblr.com, or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I never thought about what you guys mentioned in the first movie with the letters falling down. I thought it was nice imagery, but you’re totally right. Harry Potter was kind of a stupid kid before he knew about magic. Just grab a letter!
Harry’s gotta stop thinking about lovely imagery and start living in the moment: grab the damn letter, son.
He hadn’t yet honed in his seeker abilities.
A rook (♖ ♜ borrowed from Persian رخ rokh, Sanskrit रथ ratha, “chariot”) is a piece in the strategy board game of chess. Formerly the piece was called the tower, marquess, rector, and comes (Sunnucks 1970). The term castle is considered informal, incorrect, or old-fashioned.
INFORMAL AND INCORRECT. HuzzAH! I feel vindicated. #notallrons
I call them castles, got to stand up for that man-splainer.
Eh, we’ll keep ya, Stephen 😉
Just wanted to say that even nowadays England (mostly London I suppose) still have milk men delivering milk, eggs, bread, bacon and other stuff on people’s door steps… So, they might aswell be receiving it in 1991.
Also, love that you guys are making this podcast! Thank you!
Love to hear you guys struggling with the pronunciations. You’re not quite getting ‘Rowling’ right either.
No one on the books ever specifies that Hogwarts etc is in Scotland (though obviously it is). Just interesting it’s never explicitly stated.
