Slythering around Hogwarts

What are all the abbreviations after Albus Dumbledore’s name?
Also what are the different criteria for being awarded the different classes of the Order of Merlin? Why did Lockhart get awarded Third Class while Pettigrew got first? What do you have to do to get Second?
Do you think that Snape was posthumously awarded the O.M. for his actions during the course of the books as a spy? Would Harry make sure that he was given some recognition for what he did behind the scenes?
I want to see other Wizarding schools and locations like Brazil and Castelobruxo, Uganda and Uagadou, and Japan and Mahoutokoro shown off in the FB films. Or at least more background and general information on them.

"The mind is not a book, to be opened at will and examined at leisure. Thoughts are not etched on the inside of skulls, to be perused by any invader. The mind is a complex and many-layered thing... It is true, however, that those who have mastered Legilimency are able, under certain conditions, to delve into the minds of their victims and to interpret their findings correctly."

Haters gon’ hate, potatoes gon’ potate

I just finished today’s episode, and I can’t believe I’ve really never left a review. I usually don’t, unless I feel strongly about showing my support for something.

I feel strongly. Here is my support.

Yes, there’s large gaps between the films in this franchise, and that means that they might venture off topic, but the hosts are lovely and passionate, so I enjoy listening to their rants all the same. I do feel that they are self aware and try to reel it in if they need to.

That being said, I have been listening to this podcast since right before the first movie came out, and I love it. I get excited for new episodes, and I appreciate the fact that there might not always be something new and fresh to talk about, but that these hosts are right there with me, waiting for news and eagerly waiting for these movies. We’re doing it together. I love the Newt Case segments at the end, too. I’ll end with a quote from Luna Lovegood on what Mugglenet podcasts make me feel like at the end of every episode:

“It was like having friends.”

Not apolitical

You may think this is a fan podcast, but be warned that the hosts engage in shaming and intimidation to make listeners feel bad about themselves if their life views are in opposition to the ones the hosts espouse. The actor interviews were my favorite part, but it’s not worth three episodes of shaming. I’m out. The hosts can stay in their homogeneous bubble.
