Ember's balls, it's Dominic Burgess!

Thanks for the Magic (with Sera Gamble, John McNamara, and Henry Alonso Myers)
In this 2-hour conversation, we talk to showrunners Sera Gamble, John McNamara, and Henry Alonso Myers about Season 5, the series finale, and making televised magic.
Episode 513 - Fillory and Further (with Lev Grossman, Olivia Taylor Dudley, and Arjun Gupta)
This episode is a love letter: to the cast, the crews, the writers, and the fans. It is about the power of fiction to change lives and bring people together, and it is about what it means to love it. In our final episode breakdown (but not our final episode), we're joined by Arjun Gupta, Olivia Taylor Dudley, and Lev Grossman, who share what the show has meant to them -- including their favorite moments, onscreen and off, from the entire series -- and listen as we share what it has meant to us.
Thank you for 5 wonderful years. It's been magical.

Episode 512 - The Balls (with Joey Mireles and Jade Tailor)
Joey Mireles and Jade Tailor join the girls to sing the praises of Episode 512, "The Balls" -- a.k.a. this year's musical episode! So take your world seed out of your hoo-ha and join us.
Episode 511 - Be The Hyman (with Brittany Curran, David Reed, and Mike Moore)
Brittany, Mike, David, and the girls pour one out for "The Magicians" in this slightly tipsy edition of Physical Kids Weekly. From pervert ghosts to the joy of finally standing up for yourself to pickled dead people, we cover all the bases of Episode 511, "Be the Hyman."
I love this podcast! WOW you guys need to chill about Todd but otherwise you’re great. Amazing job finding such cool guests!
This is worth listening to as a whole all episodes. They spoke their truth. It wasn’t always enjoyable or easy to listen to, but the plethora of guests help provide many enriching POVs. In sum Clara and Dani and their lovely guests don’t BS. This is such a powerful show, the only one I repeatedly tell those I care about to watch – ALL Five Seasons (plus Josh’s taxi esp Alice’s ride) and this podcast has deepened my understanding in innumerable ways. Is it perfect no, but neither is the show. Are there things that get discussed as being meta while seeming as cop outs for a show whose writers made so much effort to NOT turn any moment or character into simply a plot device yes. Well anyways as you can see if you’ve bothered to read all this, is this is a show and podcast that foster a passion for important too often untold stories/perspectives/voices/and often harsh realities, and they
are under no obligation to be what you want to hear but you often be grateful nevertheless. Thank you for what you’ve done & continue to do. 🤓💜🥓
If you’re a fan - you must listen
I love this podcast. As a diehard fan of the show and the books — I’m so grateful for all the work, and the thought, that the two hosts put into this show — and thank you for bringing Lev and so many people behind the show — on to your podcasts for interviews. I worship those episodes. My only tiny feedback is to please take away the episode ratings — I feel like the episodes are too much to simply be distilled into a rating system. I realize you’re doing them differently this season - season 5 - but I’d love if they are replaced by just a general nutshell of how you felt about the episode versus a rating.
But that is a small thing — in an otherwise wonderful podcast. Thank you for all the work you do for the fandom!
