Not for ickle Firsties! This definitely-adult Harry Potter podcast is full of spoilers, wild theories, nerdy insights, and plenty of mischief. Mischief Managed is refreshingly irreverent while maintaining a loving connection with the books, movies, and all things J.K. Rowling. We solemnly swear that we are up to no good, so adult language and content is to be expected.
Episode 90 - Unfogging the Future
Hello dear friends. It's a special episode of MMP because the gang's all here! Aaand we also announce that we're going on another hiatus. Thanks for joining us for Season 2! We're sorry to leave you but we'll see you again. It's not all bad, we also share listener emails about POC HP fans experience with the series. Then we move on to our Meet your Messrs question, "If you could only read only Harry Potter book for the rest of your life, which one would you pick?" Craig and Katie have a friendship hour, Kate goes for a classic, and Laura's is magnifique. For our topic, we talk about where the Harry Potter universe could go from here. We chat about our wish list of tv shows, books, plays, and beyond! After we are done with our imagination, we move on to an out-of-place quizzle, a beauty of a Ravenclaw, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that is very Harry. WoOoOoW.
Episode 89 - Competitious Definition Make Them Boys Go Crazy
Welcome back to another episode of Mischief Managed while the world is a trash heap. Kate's joining us for this episode but Laura couldn't make it. Mischief Managed giveth and Mischief Managed taketh away. We start off with the heavy stuff first so we can get to some classic escapism. We talk through our feelings about JK's latest crap and catch up on Quarantine times. Then, Kate hits us with some heartwarming HP readings and we do a Pet Update (TM). Next we move on to a tricky Meet your Messrs question: What would you like to be Lockhart famous for? Katie's is ambitious but then super shallow, Kate's is ambitious and stays that way, and Craig's... is classic Craig. After that we move on to our topic, competition culture and how it relates to Harry Potter. We discuss sports, pros and cons, quidditch, and House points. Then it's on to a quidditch quizzle, a yet-to-be-named Craig segment (Craigment), a Super Hufflepuff, and a Marry/Boff/Kill that's actually a Marry/Boff/Kill!
Hope you are all healthy and well. Love MMP
Episode 88 - The Cho-sen One
Check out #WizardTeam podcast, The Gayly Prophet podcast, and The House of Black podcast to support amazing Black Potterheads. This episode we start with a little intro to show our support for the Black Lives Matter movement and protests in America and worldwide. POC listeners write in to firstname.lastname@example.org for our Meet Our Listeners question next episode. Hope you're all safe!
Welcome back to Mischief Managed! We check in with each other and how we're coping with the quarantine. Then we go on to talk about the latest JK twitter fuckery and go on to our Meet your Messrs question. In this one we decide which we would like to grow in our garden, bubotubers, venomous tentacula, or devils snare. I forget most of our answers but I'm pretty sure Laura is a villan. Next it's on to our topic where we do a character spotlight on Cho Chang. We discuss her highs and lows, what we like about her, how she's perceived in the fandom, and Asian representation in Harry Potter. Afterwards, we move on to a confounding quizzle, a fandom fight, a spellbound Gryffindor, and a BBB variant that is hard to describe.
Episode 87 - Let's get Lit
It's an across the pond-cast!
Our pals Ed and Roisin join us for today's episode. We chat about their intro to Potter and Roisin's award winning performance. Then it's on to our Meet Your Messrs question, where we pick who we'd write a fanfic about. Laura gets catty, Katie is obvious, Roisin goes incognito, Ed chooses an underused badass, and Craig cheats. Next we are on to our topic: J.K. as a writer. We talk about her writing style, what's unique about the Harry Potter books, and her other works. Then it's a super easy quizzle, a Peaky Slytherin, a new segment, and a location version of Be/Banish/Befriend. Stay safe, my dears.
Minisode 1 - In these unprecedented times... (unedited)
Oh hey, nice to see you! Here's a wee minisode with our beloved Kate. We catch up on quarantine lives and shoot the shit. There's even a few Marry/Boff/Kills near the end to add SOME Potter content. Other than that it's just friends hanging out and you're welcome to join.
Sorry for the delay in release and the audio quality, we hit some snags along the way. A full regular episode is coming out next week!
Act Four - Cursed Child Parody Reading
It's almost done. Thanks for joining us for our live parody readings of the cursed child. If you did like the cursed child, I hope we haven't ruined it for you! Thanks for tuning in to our lil' quarantine treat. Will you ever forgive us?
