    Wizarding World Media Consumption - Hold My Butterbeer Episode 17

    Today's episode is about all things Wizarding media! Wizards consume their news (and gossip) is a lot of different ways, including newsprint, magazines, the wireless, and even television for a short time. We discuss some of our favorite buried canon such as Tilden Toots's radio program Toots, Roots, 'n' Shoots, wizarding opinions on the Internet, what Muggle-born kids would do if forced to leave their phones at home when going to Hogwarts, and much more!

    Time Travel, A Nightmare - Hold My Butterbeer Episode 15

    Time Travel, A Nightmare - Hold My Butterbeer Episode 15

    On this week's episode we discuss all things Time Travel! We've pulled from all sorts of canon for this one, from the original books, old Pottermore articles (we keep the receipts!), Cursed Child, and more. The hosts are mixed about how time travel is used in general, and even more so when it comes to the Harry Potter series.

    JKR's Tone Deaf Echo Chamber - Hold My Butterbeer Episode 13

    JKR's Tone Deaf Echo Chamber - Hold My Butterbeer Episode 13

    Trigger warning: Stories of abuse, use of adult language, harmful statements regarding the Transgender community. 

    On today's episode, we address the recent statements made by JK Rowling on Twitter which are harmful to the Transgender and Non-Binary Communities. During a global pandemic, and in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement and the battle for social justice, JK Rowling got back on Twitter last week to reinforce her stance of "gender critical feminism", also called "Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminism (TERF)." We dissect her remarks and why we find them so problematic. We have also created a blog post reviewing the material gone over in today's episode including screen shots and links to further information and resources: https://www.holdmybutterbeer.com/post/episode-13-jkr-s-tone-deaf-echo-chamber

    Note: This episode was recording before JK Rowling released a statement on her website regarding her views on sex and gender, and so that material is not discussed in today's episode. 

    For more information on how to be an Ally to Trans and Non-Binary people, please check out this link from the Trevor Project: https://www.thetrevorproject.org/resources/trevor-support-center/a-guide-to-being-an-ally-to-transgender-and-nonbinary-youth/
