Merlin’s beard! & Thank Dumbledore!
What are all the abbreviations after Albus Dumbledore’s name?
My best Patronus memory is, I’d have to say probably the time I received the first Harry Potter book from my grandparents (which I still have despite having the Slytherin house edition and the Illustrated edition).
Get Alison out of here
So much love in my heart in this pod 💕
I started listening to this podcast when I was 14, I’m 21 now and while my relationship with Harry Potter has changed over the years, this gem of a podcast has remained a beacon of how positive and beautiful the fandom is, as while as reminding me Hogwarts will always be there to welcome me home. Whenever things are tough in my own life, I know I can put his podcast on and be reminded of the magic of storytelling and of friendship. If you’re a Harry Potter fan and you haven’t listened to this podcast, what are you doing?
