The original “Harry Potter” podcast has now reached its tenth anniversary. On August 7, 2005, MuggleNet was the first “Harry Potter” fan site to launch a companion discussion podcast, and a decade later its hosts are still competently discussing the series. This very special anniversary episode ranges from discussion of long-lost theories, to the delightful inclusion of listener voicemails. It is a can’t-miss episode for all who have joined the podcast on its journey thus far.

- Quidditch started in the 11th century at a place called Queerditch Marsh, which is not marked on Muggle maps because wizards have made the place unplottable. Originally, it was quite a crude game played on broomsticks with just the Quaffle.
