    7.33 The Prince’s Tale

    7.33 The Prince’s Tale

    It’s time for the prince’s long-awaited T-A-L-E, in which not only the page number is highly significant, but the number 19 (or 20?) is as well. Grawp is missing a shoe (and we all know how expensive Danskos in that size are), Ron and Hermione completely dip on Harry, and Snivellus becomes somewhat more humanized. After all, sometimes we think we Sort too soon.

    7.32 The Elder Wand

    7.32 The Elder Wand

    Alice and Martha sound like Lucius as they discuss “the boy,” who makes his way out of the castle and heads for the Shrieking Shack. Hagrid also makes his way out of the castle as the acromantulas get a bit restive. And finally, it’s the ultimate flight of the Prince.

    7.31 The Battle of Hogwarts

    7.31 The Battle of Hogwarts

    Luckily for you, Alice and Martha have not, to use the common phrase, done a bunk this week, though they might have to if all the Slytherin listeners start coming for them! Harry tracks down the Gray Lady, who really might want to consider taking out a restraining order on “The Baron,” and finds his way to the Room of Hidden Things to get his hands on the the die-dum. And don’t forget that in the midst of all this chaos, the Battle of Hogwarts has officially begun, and Percy is about to make Fred laugh for the first and last time. 🙁

    7.30 The Sacking of Severus Snape

    7.30 The Sacking of Severus Snape

    It’s too bad Flight of the Prince has already been taken, because that really would have been a much better title for this chapter–well, or, The Carrows Come to Call. While Ron and Hermione rush off to find a “bathroom,” Harry acts on Dumbledore’s orders and tries to tract down the missing diadem (which, in case you forgot, is a bit like a crown). Finally, as the entire DA and Order rush out to fight in a most organized fashion, the prodigal Weasley son returns and finally gets to meet his sister-in-law.

A great HP podcast!

I love Alice and Martha’s lengthy and analytical discussions on the Harry Potter books! I’ve been binge listening since September 2019 and am now on 6.26. I look forward to catching up! Listening to TRWS reminds me of my sister and I as I’m a Ravenclaw and my sister is a Gryffindor. The sister dynamic is GOALS, the book club episodes are awesome, and well shutuptim is ridiculously obnoxious! Great work, RWS! I look forward to hearing more!

Walking with the real weird sisters

When I started my weight loss journey two years ago, I began to listen to podcasts. After listening to various ones, my sister (knowing my love for the Harry Potter books which I have read multiple times) suggested your podcast. My unwritten rule was I could only listen while out walking. Needless to say, the real weird sisters kept me so entranced that I started walking four, sometimes five miles a day! I quickly dropped 75 pounds. So thank you Alice and Martha for helping me to become a healthier person while keeping me entertained! I can hardly wait to see where your journey takes you after the seventh book is compete on the podcast! Signed: the real weird walking fanatic
