MuggleCast | The #1 Most-Listened to Harry Potter Podcast 3

MuggleCast 49 Transcript (continued)

Live Feedback - Magical Schools Around The World

Jamie: I was going to - Claire from France is writing in to completely correct us and say that at the World Cup, Harry and Ron, I think it was, ran into the Salem Witches Institute in America, so there clearly are other magical schools around the world.

Eric: Right.

Kevin: Oh yeah, we all...

Jamie: And that's proof. So should we move on? I think we pretty much wrapped up that discussion.

Andrew: Yeah, we killed it.

Jamie: But didn't reach any conclusions, again.

Kevin: Of course.

Andrew: This the whole purpose of the show. We do not really reach any conclusion and there is no point for MuggleCast. We are all about no conclusions.

Jamie: When we finally reach conclusions, the universe ends. It's just like a paradox, you know?

Kevin: It is, right.

Andrew: Hey live feedback! Sorry.

Jamie: Sorry.

Andrew: Finish your joke. No, go, go.

Jamie: No, it's...

Andrew: No, it's cool. No, please, it's cool. I'm over it. Go ahead.

Jamie: But it won't be funny now, because you've built it up!

[Andrew laughs]

Jamie: Fine. I was going to say if the universe ends, don't think about meteors or tsunamis or anything like that. It's just MuggleCast finally reached an agreeable conclusion. You can believe that if you want.

Andrew: I see. I see. Well our live feedback continues - what Jamie, what?

Eric:Something about meteors and...

Jamie: Don't worry.

Update: Live Feedback

Andrew: In case some of you haven't noticed we're having a few connection problems. Our server died out, I think. Just once or twice. But it seems like we're doing okay now, and our live feedback continues to come in - literally by the minute. It is a very, very, very successful part of the show here.

Kevin: Remember sending in for those, for those who are...

Andrew:Yes, we do appreciate the live feedback. If you have any questions about this topic, why don't you send them in right now to, and then we are going to take a break and then we're going to do some other fun stuff. But Ben, you're here in the studio with me here this week, and as some of the people may know, if you go to and click on the adventures tab, it will get our lovely little audio blog.

Ben: Mhm. Well, yeah, I've beat Andrew in practically everything there is.

Andrew: [laughs] We didn't need to bring up that.

[Ben laughs]

Andrew:I just wanted to let everyone know that we're sort of...

Ben: Yeah, it's - it will be updated tonight. I beat Andrew in skeeball, pool, air hockey - you name it, I've beaten him in it.

Kevin: I'll have to play you at pool.

Ben: Andrew is an expert at losing.

Andrew: Kevin, I'll play you in pool.

Ben: Andrew's an expert at losing, the poor guy.

Kevin: How big of a table were you playing on? A full size?

[Andrew laughs]

Ben: Oh, it was like at least 300 feet.

[Eric laughs]

Andrew: And this has been idle chat with Kevin Steck.

[Andrew and Kevin laugh]

Ben: It's a full-size pool table, yes.

Jamie: It's a bit small isn't it?

Andrew: Here's an interesting question, Crystal and Carrie Johnson of Garden City, Kansas. I think I revealed too much.

Ben: Oh!

Andrew: But - what? Go ahead. They live near you?

Ben: These two people, Crystal and Carrie Johnson, I ran into at a debate tournament. I'm pretty sure because they - I was at a national qualifying tournament - e-mail in Crystal if this is you, because this kid came up to me, he said "'These two girls want to meet you." And he tried to pull me over there and I was freaked out so I didn't go over there, but e-mail me if this is you, these people from forensics. So, yeah.

Andrew: And don't pretend to be them because we have your IP address, so there's no point.

[Kevin laughs]

Live Feedback - Why No Wizarding University?

Andrew: So anyway, they write, "Do you think that there is no wizarding University because they have learned everything they need to know in school, or is it because they learn what they need to know or what they need to on the job?"

Kevin: On the job.

Andrew: I'm going to have to say it's because they learn everything in school - really? Well I was going to say school because they learn about Apparating, they learn about defense, they - they learn everything you need at Hogwarts.

Kevin: Well, I think they learn the vast majority, but you have to remember - just look at Dumbledore. He didn't learn all of that in [laughs] school.

Eric: [laughs] They don't teach that at school.

Kevin: He learned through - exactly, he learned it through experience. I think that a lot of wizards, a lot of the best wizards in the wizarding world are exactly that. People who have gone beyond their school training and actually made an effort to teach themselves aspects of the wizarding community.

Eric: You know what is really, really interesting Kevin is that Dumbledore was a Transfiguration teacher. When Dippet was Headmaster, Dumbledore taught Transfiguration. When has that come into play? Have we seen Dumbledore transfigure anything? I mean, just talking about Dumbledore and all the things he's learned since he left school...

Kevin: Yeah, but you have to remember that Snape was a Potions Master but he really wanted Defense Against the Dark Arts.

Eric: Yeah.

Kevin: So just because he's in that spot doesn't mean he's the best at it.

Eric: Okay.

Ben: Guys, Crystal e-mailed again. This is indeed that Crystal that I met at the Forensics Tournament.

Eric: Oh, stalker!

Ben: So just - yeah.

Andrew: [In a weepy voice] This is such a nice reunion!

Ben: Thank you!

Live Feedback - Population of England

Andrew: Jamie, you're going to want to pay attention to this: Connor from Oregon just submitted some live feedback. He was looking at Wikipedia, and the population of London is actually 7.5 million, so...

Eric: That's eight million.

Andrew:You don't even know your own country, that is pretty embarrassing.

Jamie: It's half a million out! That's disgusting.

Kevin: I know.

Eric: Round up, Jamie. Don't be so hard on yourself.

Live Feedback - Posting on iTunes?

Andrew: Anyone else? Anna M from the UK writes, "Are you recording this? And if so, will you be posting it on iTunes?" Of course we will be posting it on iTunes. That would be silly if we didn't. We don't want to exclude the 1.5 zillion of you who aren't listening live right now.

Eric: [laughs] So you reached your goal of thirty thousand listeners, or one hundred thousand listeners, Andrew?

Andrew: Yeah. Hey!

Live Feedback - Learning Specifics For Future Occupation

Ben: Katie from Marietta, Georgia writes about the discussion we had earlier: "They learn specifics of what they need to know for their job in training. Tonks said that you have to be - you have to have training to become an Auror. Most of the jobs probably require taking some sort of formal training." So this is also interesting to point out because once again, when they are done at Hogwarts, its not like they jump right into the job field. They have to have training before they actually get their professions. So in a way, that's probably more like their internship slash college. However you want to look at it.

Kevin: Point. Kevin was right again.

[Jamie laughs]

Ben:For the first time.

Eric:Yeah, for the first.

[Long pause]

Andrew: Well this has been the MuggleCast Awkward Moment of the Show!

[Ben laughs]

Andrew: I'm glad we got past that okay.

[Andrew and Ben laugh]

Jamie: I'm sure there'll be many more.

Andrew: We - oh, well - what'd you say, Jamie?

Jamie: I just said I'm sure that there'll be many more.

Andrew: No, I beg to differ.

Live Feedback - Live Podcasts Every Wednesday?

Kevin: Oh, here's a good questions from Nate: "Will you guys be doing live podcasts every Wednesday instead of normal release time?" No. We will be doing normal podcasts, recorded on Wednesday, released on Sunday like normal. But we'll...

Ben: Wait, hold on, hold on! Hold on Kevin! We're going to do this more often...

Kevin: Oh, absolutely.

Ben: ...since this has been more of a success. So don't be jumping to conclusions, come on.

Andrew: Yeah no conclusions here, Eric. Kevin, no conclusions, no conclusions.

Kevin: All podcasts live.

Andrew: Hey, hey, how about this idea? How about we do a MuggleCast live every six - every morning at, like, 6:00 AM.

Kevin: Yeah, like a radio station.

Andrew: Instead of turning on a TV - yeah, you turn on MuggleCast, and you get your daily dose of Harry Potter news. [laughs]

Eric: Eric Scull on morning coffee high. Not a good idea.

Jamie: Yeah, the news will be eight hours long and it'll be time for the next news, Eric, when you finish that one.

Andrew: Yeah.

Live Feedback - Jamie And The Police

Jamie: Can I - can I reply to a piece of feedback from Nate who says: "Busted Andrew, we could hear Jamie before the show, better call the police in Vegas." I'd just like to point out that was not me. I don't know who it was, but I'll be sorting them out very soon. Thank you.

Eric: What? Something's in Vegas?

Andrew: I'm not sure what they are talking about, but...

Jamie: I can't remember it. Can you, Andrew?

Live Feedback - Opening The Server

Andrew: It lies. I honestly can't remember. [laughs] Anyway we are actually opening the server up right now trying to see how many people we can fit in here, because this is like a test. We consider you all a bunch of test monkeys, and we are going to feed you all bananas by providing our - what is this?

Eric: Oh, don't say that, they'll want it now.

[Andrew laughs]

Ben: Genetically engineered bananas.

Andrew: [Laughs] Okay! Oh...

Eric: You will never be hungry for a banana again.

Andrew: Right. Anyway, anyone else got any live feedback before we take a break? Oh, by the way, if you haven't noticed by now this is going to be sort of a different show. It's a little bit different from our normal episode, because this is the last one before our 50th and our last one before the live podcast, and we've got a ton of stuff going on, so we hope it's still the same amount of quality.

Live Feedback - Jamie's British Joke of the Day

Ben: We've got an important piece of live feedback here. Jack from "none available" would like to know: [in a British accent] "Will Jamie be giving his joke of the day?" Jamie, Jamie, will you be giving your joke of the day today, Jamie?

Jamie: I - now you see, I was planning on making an announcement about that, a bad announcement. So yes, I will definitely be giving a joke, and I won't be trying to find one on Google by typing in funny plus jokes plus very funny...

[Ben laughs]

Jamie: ...and then reading it out loud pretending I've made it up myself. So, yes, sorry. Did I just say that out loud?

Eric: But the real question is Jamie, will you be telling a joke to start off Lumos everyday? When registration opens will you be there with your paper to tell your joke?

Jamie: [Long pause] Yes, Eric. Shouldn't have said that, shouldn't have said that.

Kevin: Oh, sorry.

Jamie: Just before the break, I have a question for everyone, and send in your live feedback. I don't remember who sent it in, so sorry, but you said that "Can the Room of Requirement interfere with the prophecy?" As in can there be, sort of contradictions in terms? I don't know how this would work, but it just occurred to me that it was pretty interesting subject. So send in your ideas, thank you.

Eric: And I have one live feedback result here from - this one comes from Distorted Melody from the MuggleCast Fan Chat on AIM. She says - or, they say, "Who is drinking the Slurpee?"

Andrew: No one. [Laughs] That's the call quality.

Eric: That was - yeah.

Ben: No Slurpees here. So folks, that does it for us until after the break. Remember, if you happen to - it'll only be five to ten minutes. But remember, if you happen to disconnect, just keep trying to reconnect. That's the only way you are going to get back in. So we hope you come back in.

Andrew: [Show music in the background] Can you guys all here the music? We have music now!

Jamie: Nice music.

Eric: That's like the coolest music ever.

Back To The Show

Ben: Welcome back everybody!

Eric: Yay!

Ben: I'm still Ben Schoen. [Laughs]

Andrew: I'm still Andrew Sims, I hope.

Kevin: And I think I'm still Kevin Steck.

Ben: [In a British accent] Who's all here? Go on, go on now!

Eric: I was Eric Scull.

Kevin: Did we lose the Brit?

Jamie: No. I think I've aged somewhat in that five minutes, though.

[Eric laughs]

Andrew: Okay. Well, welcome back everyone to the show. Of course, we are still live, and if you lose the connection it is important to remember to just try to reconnect. Because otherwise...

Ben: You're not getting back in.

Andrew: [laughs] Yeah, and we have that connection limited to only a certain amount of people so you do not crash our poor little server. One live feedback came in earlier requesting that we have more music on the show here, so I figured I'd turn a little music on here. [Spice Girls starts playing] How's this? This good?

[MuggleCasters sing along with the song]: So tell me what you want, what you really really want, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really, really, really wanna zigazig ha. If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends, Make it last forever friendship never ends, If you wanna be my lover, you have got to give, Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is.

Andrew: Oh wait, wait, wait, we've got to get to the verse at least. A one, two, three... [sings wrong lyrics, then laughs] Well, I screwed that up. Okay. Gone away - oh, oops, hello. [Music stops playing] We're back, we're back.

Jamie: Let's try and criticize that song as much as we can.

Andrew: Oh come on, we played it on the show the other day. You probably wouldn't notice, so...

Ben: [talking in a girly voice to Andrew's sister in the background] It's Becca!

Jamie: [laughs] You did?

How Much Do We Talk?

Andrew: Yes. We are going to move on now to a little e-mail we got from Devin, 16, of Rose Valley, Pennsylvania. She writes about how much we talk.

Ben: Devin is a guy's name.

Andrew: Or he. No, I'm pretty sure. No, it's also a girl's name.

Ben: No, Devin is not a girl's name.

Andrew: Ummm.

Ben: E-mail in right now. If Devin is a girl's name, e-mail in and let us know.

Andrew: No don't, because we're going to get a million feedback. Anyway, she calculated the amount of words per hour that we all talk. Kevin: Wow!

Andrew: Does anyone want to guess who came in first place with the most words per hour?

Becca: [In background] I do!

Andrew: Not you, Ben, because you see it.

Jamie: Eric with 900,000 words an hour.

Eric: Wait, Jamie was..

Andrew: How much?

Jamie: 900,000, am I close?

Eric: Wait, here's live feedback...

Andrew: 900,000? You're a little out of the ballpark.

Jamie: Oh no.

Eric: Guys this is good. From Mwuahaha, location California, they say, "Evil monkeys will eat you if the show does not get on the air." So, that's good that we've taken care of that.

Jamie: Yes.

Eric: Oh well.

Andrew: Alina says Devin is so a girl’s name, but then Danielle says Devin is a guy's name. So, I think we're split. I think it's actually Devin spelt D - E - V - I - N.

Ben: Like that means anything.

Eric: This will be the next one. Okay.

Andrew: That means it's a girl. D - E - V - O - N is a guy. [laughs] Anyway, anyway.

Eric: Okay, Ben, that's not..

Andrew: Eric came in first place with 3,338 words per hour.

Ben: Congratulations, Eric.

Andrew: Yeah, round of applause for Eric.

Ben: What an achievement for Eric Scull!

Eric: Jamie has 3,337 at least. I mean, Jamie and I are neck in neck.

Ben: No, Jamie was 2,681.

Jamie: Thank you, Eric.

Ben: Which is a considerable 700 words - 700 words per hour - lower than you.

Eric: That was...

Ben: 700!

Eric: Ben! Nate from Maine says, "Will we be having the privilege to hear a Live Give Me A Butterbeer?" Will you ask the fans to give you a butterbeer on this live show, Ben?

Andrew: He'd answer, but he doesn't want to bring his word per hour count up.

Ben: [laughs] Yeah.

Andrew: [laughs] But I - who wants...

Eric: So wait, you can't compare to my 3,300-some words if you don't want to reach that goal.

Andrew: Who wants to guess who's third? Third place.

Eric: Time me, I dare you, time me.

Jamie: Kevin.

Andrew: Who, Jamie? You're a little too loud.

Jamie: Kevin, sorry. Kevin.

Andrew: No actually, I'm in third place with 2,473 words; then comes Ben with 2,191, Kevin in fifth with...

Jamie: No.

Andrew: What?

Kevin: So this is over all the episodes?

Andrew: Yes. Obviously, it's not this episode.

[Andrew, Ben, and Kevin laugh]

Kevin: Well, you never know, some people can...

Jamie: I'm not joining in laughing because I actually thought it was this episode.

[Everyone laughs]

Eric: Oh really?

Andrew: Kevin has 1,419, Laura was 1,354, and Micah comes in at a solemn, strong, and bold 561 words per hour.

[Andrew, Ben, and Jamie laugh]

Ben: Micah's a soldier. He is a soldier.

Andrew: I wish we all spoke as much as he did.

Live Feedback - Spice Girls

Jamie: Can I just answer one quick piece of live feedback? Alice from Lancaster County in PA says, "I just want to know, who has that Spice Girls song on file?" Well Alice, I think that might just be Andrew.

Andrew: I'm proud to say that that is indeed me. [laughs]

Ben: Okay, get this. Yesterday we were on the way home from the ocean...

Andrew: Oh god. From Ocean City, okay, it's not from the ocean. We weren't on...

Ben: Yeah. Guess what? Andrew busts out his iPod and starts playing the Spice Girls... [laughs] And I'm like, "What are you doing?"

Andrew: But it's important to note that this came after the U2 and everything. My sister and her friend were in the back of the car and I thought it might be a nice song. So then instead Ben decides to switch on some hick music.

Ben: Mhm.

Andrew: And then none of us were amused. [Jamie laughs]

Ben: [in hick voice] Takes the tractor another round.

Andrew: So anyway, thank you Devin for sending in that information, and she says she can provide us with more figures which I'm sure we would all love to see. What?

Eric: Ryan R from Germany writes: "Dear MuggleCast, - and Devin means writer of poetry. It's Celtic and Gaelic, and it is unisex." So thank you Ryan R from Germany.

Jamie: There we go.

Submit Gimme A Butterbeer For Later Use In The Show

Ben: Okay, thank you for settling that. It's time to discuss what's going on with Gimme A Butterbeer. I made a sort of tactical error when I first started this segment because I should have done it every other week. Because at first I thought, "Oh, I'll never run out of ideas." But now, folks, I'm out of ideas. So, this week Gimme A Butterbeer...

[Andrew laughs]

Jamie: Literally, give him one, give him one.

Ben: [in high-pitched voice] ...idea, please. [laughs]

Kevin: [laughs] Idea.

Ben: So right now send in- send in something, okay? Send in something, please. [Kevin laughs]

Ben: Oh by the way, Alina from Pennsylvania writes, "Wawawa chocolate shake." Andrew and I each had a chocolate shake from WaWa a few nights ago, so...

Andrew: Oh yeah, that's right.

Jamie: Possibly the most gripping piece of live feedback we've had so far.

[Andrew and Ben laugh]

Andrew: Yeah.

Ben: Yeah.

Kevin: [laughs] Yeah.

Ben: So go ahead, send me your Gimme A Butterbeer ideas right now. Maybe we'll work something up for the end of the show.

[Jamie laughs]

Live Calls

Andrew: Now it is time to move on to the part of the show where you guys can call in and ask your questions. I guess we should have brought this up at the beginning of the show now that I think of it so people had time to...

Ben: Think of questions.

Andrew: ...ask some questions. If you've got a question that you would like us to answer, whether it's a question about Harry Potter, a question about the show, a question about maybe the live podcast, whatever you want, call in right now: 1-218-20-MAGIC. Yes, Eric?

Eric: You know who's going call in? It's going to be Aaron from Pleasanton, California who keeps sending in his Top 10 list. He sent it in so many times, Jamie.

Andrew: Also, if you're in the United Kingdom, you can dial 020-8144-0677, in Australia 02-8003-5668. And then you can also Skype the name MuggleCast. Lets take a call from Bridget.

Eric: Okay.

Andrew: Bridget, are you there?

Bridget: Yes.

Ben: Hello.

Eric: Oh, hello.

Andrew: Bridget, I'm not going lie, I like your Skype icon. [laughs]

Ben: [doing his Andrew impression] Yeah! All right!

Bridget: Oh wow, your sound needs to be fixed.

Andrew: [laughs] What's that?

Jamie: Well considering...

Bridget: You know that we can't hear you?

Andrew: I fixed it. We're okay now.

Jamie: You can't hear Andrew? That's a godsend, why are you complaining? [laughs]

[Kevin laughs]

Andrew: [laughs] I fixed it. Wait, you can't hear me or you can't hear the rest of the people? You should be able to hear everyone now. I don't know that must have sounded...

Kevin: Can everyone hear the call?

Bridget: Okay, now I can hear myself and that's really weird.

Andrew: Let's take another call. Erica, are you there?

Erica: Yeah. Hello?

Andrew: Hi, Erica!

Eric: Hello.

Ben: Abercrombie. Abercrombie & Fitch.

Andrew: Don't give out her Skype name.

Erica: Hello? Hello?

Andrew: Can you hear us? Whoa, oh, hello.

Kevin: Hi.

Erica: Yeah. Hi. Hello. Pardon? Yeah, I'm here.

Eric: I'm sorry.

Andrew: Where do you live? Where are you from?

Erica: Can you hear me?

Andrew: Yes.

Jamie: Yes.

Erica: Hi, I'm from Melbourne, Australia.

Jamie: You do have a very nice accent.

Erica: I can't hear you, it's going really slow.

[Eric laughs]

Andrew: Perhaps because it has to cross a gigantic ocean. [laughs]

[Everyone laughs]

Kimberly: The Building Plan

Andrew: Let's invite Kimberly. Kimberly? Kimberly, are you there?

Kimberly: Hello?

Jamie: Hello.

Andrew: Do we have to- are you across a gigantic ocean?

Kimberly: Hello?

Ben: Bye Ellie, bye Ellie. [laughs]

Andrew: Hi. [laughs]

Kimberly: [laughs] Hi.

Jamie:Hi. Oh, you're here.

Andrew: Can you hear me now?

Kimberly: Can you hear it? I can hear you.

Andrew: Yes, yes. We're good now. Okay, cool. What's going on? Thanks for calling in. You've been calling a while haven't you? Sorry Jamie, go ahead.

Jamie: So..

Kimberly: It...

Jamie: Go on.

Kimberly: I just - it just started working, so I haven't heard the show. I just got connected through QuickTime, so...

Andrew: Oh okay.

Kimberly: How's it going?

Andrew: It's going pretty well. This is a test.

Jamie: It's interesting.

Kimberly: I was wondering - I don't know if you've got, if you guys have talked about in Order of the Phoenix when Harry sees a building plan? You know what I'm talking about?

Jamie: Oh, yeah. What? Bill's building plan?

Kimberly: Yeah.

Eric: I guess it was of the Department of Ministries - Mysteries. Sorry.

Kimberly: Oh, it was?

Eric: I think so.

Kimberly: Cool.

Eric: What do you guys - do you guys think? I think they're mapping that - wait, maybe not, because did we ever find out what that weapon was? In - didn't Voldemort want a weapon, or that was the assumption?

Ben: Love that Harry has.

Jamie: Not for Voldemort's use.

Kimberly: I don't know, it could have been the prophecy. I thought it could have been.

Eric: Because at Grimmauld Place, I think it was either Fred or George or somebody stumbled in and they determined that Voldemort was looking for a weapon, and there were blueprints that I guess were either Department of Mysteries or somewhere else that the Order had to go to do something. I don't know. That's interesting, good question.

Kimberly: Well, thanks. Good luck with the rest of the show!

Eric: Wait, don't leave!

Ben: Eric's got to answer it.

[Andrew and Ben laugh]

Kimberly: Oh, okay.

Eric: Are you guys going to discuss this about the building plans or whatever?

Andrew: See, to be honest, I don't remember that because I guess that was a little small tidbit in the book. What do you think, Ben?

Kimberly: I think it's on page 80 or something.

Ben: I don't know. [laughs]

Eric: Page 80-something? Fairly early in the books, I guess.

Jamie: Can I give a bit of feedback?

Andrew: Yes.

Jamie: Brian e-mails in with a rather sarcastic tone...

Andrew: Uh oh.

Jamie: ...saying, " The weapon was the prophecy. Duh."

[Kimberly laughs]

Ben: Ooh.

Kimberly: Oh god!

Eric: Oh, come on.

Jamie: I think he brings up a fair point. Was it the prophecy? But is it really a weapon, or is it just a piece of information?

Eric: Oh wait. Well yeah, it is a weapon. It's the same thing, because it's the knowledge of how to destroy Harry.

Kevin: Exactly.

Eric: Thank you Alina, Alina from Pennsylvania. Okay, so wait, does the whole fan base agree that we are correct in assuming that the blueprints were of the Department of Mysteries?

Jamie: Well, we don't know, do we?

Kevin: Yeah, but it would be fitting if you're trying to find a prophecy which is in a building that you don't know if you got a blueprint.

Eric: Or the Hall of Prophecy, right. You know, it's interesting they have blueprints of the Department of Mysteries. Perhaps Harry can retrieve those without actually having to go into the Ministry?

Kevin: Yeah, but you have to remember they also have the map that Fred and George used, so...

Jamie: To add to that previous thing about it being the prophecy, Alina writes in and says, "The weapon was the knowledge of how to destroy Harry."

Eric: I just said that.

[Kevin and Andrew laugh]

Jamie: Did you really?

Kevin: Yeah.

Ben: Yes.

Jamie: Oh, I knew that.

Kevin: [laughs] Quote, unquote.

Jamie: I was just testing everyone. [laughs] Well done, you all passed with flying colors.

Andrew: Thank you, Ellie, for calling in.

Kimberly: Yeah sure, no problem.

Ben: Next caller.

Kevin: Yeah, thank you.

Kimberly: Bye.

Andrew: See ya.

Kevin: Bye.

Jamie: Bye.

Crystal and Keeri: Favorite Houses

Andrew: Oh, she hung up for me. Thank you for hanging up for me. Okay, we're going to get another caller in here now. Caller?

Ben: John?

Andrew: [laughs] Shut up! You blew it, you totally blew it!

Ben: [laughs] I didn't blow anything.

Andrew: Oh, that's his fault. He held it, not me.

Jamie: What is this?

Andrew: How about Nathan Sutherberg? Oh nope, missed him too. How about a fresh one? How about Chris? Hello, Chris!

Crystal: Hey guys. Yeah? Hey.

Andrew: Hey, what's up?

Crystal: It's Crystal from earlier. [laughs]

Kevin: [laughs] Oh.

Andrew: The girl from earlier.

Crystal:It's Crystal, hey guys.

Ben: Is this the girl from Garden City?

Crystal:Yep, that's me.

Ben: So you've seen me before. You've been like a hundred feet away from me before, haven't you?

[Andrew laughs]

Crystal:Whoa, how do I mute this?

Andrew: Just turn down your computer volume.

Eric: Just leave.

Kevin: Just hit pause.

Eric: Just leave.

Ben: You were like 30 feet away from me once.

Crystal: Okay, can you guys hear me?

Eric: Yeah, give your undivided attention to us.

Crystal: [laughs] All right, I was wondering - okay, what are your favorite houses?

Eric: Oooh.

Jamie: Mine! I love mine.

Andrew: We get this question..

Ben: [in high-pitched voice] I'm a Gryffindor.

[Andrew laughs]

Eric: We don't know enough.

Crystal: Have you heard this question before? Sorry.

Eric: We don't know enough.

Andrew: It's all right. We get it a lot, but I guess it's just your personal opinion. It's not like any of us put in a lot of deep thought into it, at least I don't. Maybe Eric does, but...

Ben: My favorite house is Andrew's house.

[Andrew, Kevin, and Eric laugh]

Andrew: Awww.

Eric: My favorite house is The Burrow.

Crystal: Yeah. I'm a Puff, so I was just wondering.

Andrew: Okay we're talking about..

Ben: Hogwarts houses.

Kevin: Yeah, Hogwarts houses.

Ben: You're a Hufflepuff? Are you kidding me?

Crystal: Yeah I am, I'm a loyal Puff. [laughs]

Jamie: You..

Andrew: [laughs] You're a loyal Puff.

Ben: Okay, what year are you in high school right now?

Crystal: Actually, I'm a - I'm just in college, now.

Eric: Woot!
