The 301st episode of the longest-running Harry Potter podcast is now online! In it, your hosts discuss recent Harry Potter news, including new Pottermore material, seasonal updates to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and – most importantly – MuggleNet’s visit to the set of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!

  • Andrew’s elusive quest from Episode 300 continues…
  • An exciting Patreon announcement: It’s never been easier to listen to our bonus content!

  • Cormoran Strike has been cast! We discuss adapting the book series to television.
  • Halloween is coming to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Japan! Is the Orlando park missing a huge opportunity?
  • Next stop for Harry Potter: The Exhibition… The Netherlands! Hopefully, they allow photos now.
