MuggleCast #161: Larger than Life

It's time for our annual Halloween-centric episode! This year, we're talking more about the ghosts of Hogwarts and and the Halloween-themes in the series. Ben “Larger than Life” Schoen also returns to the show and – well, the long time listeners of the show can guess who he wants to be for Halloween! Plus:

– We talk about our upcoming show at Azktraz 2009.
– Analyzing Episode 61: did we have anything right about ghosts pre-DH?
– If you had to decide which house to be in based on the ghost, which would you chose?
– Were there enough of the traditional Halloween characters in the series?
– We discuss Snape's vampire-like qualities.
– What if: JK Rowling were a man? It's a serious question.
– Debate: The Potter series should be made mandatory reading in US public schools.
