MuggleCast #266: “Growing Up” now available!

Episode 266, the third-to-last episode of MuggleCast, welcomes back one of the show’s original hosts: Laura Thompson!

– Laura’s back!
– We reflect on 10 years since Order of the Phoenix.
– Pottermore site revamp: where did Laura get sorted?
– Annotated Sorcerer’s Stone sells for $227,000. Shouldn’t that content be in Pottermore?
– Bear vs. Honey Badger.
– Is Quidditch the result of a lover’s quarrel?
– Is J.K. Rowling’s next project in the works…?
– …and are Emma Watson, David Heyman, and WB involved?
– Your tweets on Dan saying “no” to Wizarding World video.
– Grow up Rupert! Grow up Helena!
