Ep. 95—Gender Revelio!
Play • 1 hr 16 min
The One Where We Alienate Most of our Remaining Listeners Who Still Like Harry Potter. Kidding-ish, but this is the first one recorded post-Rowling screed(s), so yeah, we get into it a bit. Also, some of Bill's best friends are goblins, heterosexual marriage cures Lupin of … being old and tired? and Ron makes every bad-faith devil's advocate argument you could ever hope to find on Reddit. And we learn about art history a little bit!

498: Harry Potter's 'Midnight Sun': The Companion Stories We Want Written
News: With a new appointment at Warner Brothers, could a Harry Potter television show be in our future? (Note: This episode was recorded before The Hollywood Reporter reported on January 25 that a live-action Harry Potter series is officially in development, but our news discussion still relates to the news) It's Not Just For Kids! Listeners weigh in on Ollivander's wand choosing ceremony at the Wizarding World theme park. Main Discussion: Harry Potter Companion Novels. As we continue the 20th anniversary celebration of the Sorcerer's Stone movie, whose eyes would we want to see the first story through? Twilight and Fifty Shades have taken this approach: have other book series? (MuggleCast interviewed Twilight author Stephenie Meyer back on Episode 156 (https://www.mugglecast.com/episode-156-an-interview-with-stephenie-meyer/) ). What would Sorcerer's Stone look like from Professor Quirrell's perspective? Would Draco Malfoy and Boy Who Snubbed Me be a bestseller? Would readers enjoy Severus Snape's story and his constant struggle to protect the son of his worst enemy? Andrew takes us further into the series looking at Prisoner of Azkaban through Hermione's eyes. Other characters discussed include: Firenze, Professor McGonagall, Remus Lupin and Hagrid. Why did none of the hosts choose Ron? Dumbledore? Chicken Soup For The MuggleCast Soul (from Greece) Quizzitch: What is Albus Dumbledore’s favorite flavor of jam?

2: Andrew's Bumble Scandal, WandaVision Reactions, WTF Trump News
The second week of 2021 wasn't... as bad? Maybe? The Bumble scandal: Andrew believes his photo was stolen to make an imposter account. (Little does he know...) CELEBRATE: your federal student loans will not go into repayment at the end of the month! What's in Biden's $1.9 trillion covid relief package? We go over the deets, and Laura complains about the Democratic infighting already happening. Not content with the amount of whataboutism that's happened so far this year, Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) compared inflammatory comments by Robert De Niro, Kathy Griffin, and Madonna to the actual armed insurrection perpetuated by Trumpian, white supremacist terrorists. WTF News makes its 2021 debut: the Trump admin lied about having vaccines in reserve, taxpayers have been paying $3,000 a month for Javanka to refuse use of bathroom facilities to their Secret Service detail, women on Bumble have been conservative catfishing to identify and turn in insurrectionists, and members of Congress may have lead "reconnaissance tours" in the days before the attack on the Capitol. Who should become the new, permanent host of Jeopardy? Andrew has opinions. We've got some spoiler-free thoughts on the first two episodes of WandaVision - all is not as it seems! How could Marvel Studios bring Chris Evans back for more Captain America without it seeming like a cash grab? We've got all the entertainment you'll need in this week's recommendations: 'Promising Young Woman' (Andrew), backyard.co (Pam), and Hunt a Killer (Laura).

And in this week's installment of After Dark, available on Patreon: We dive into a new study at Pew Research Center, which looks at the current state of online harassment (https://www.pewresearch.org/internet/2021/01/13/the-state-of-online-harassment/) . With most U.S. Americans saying social media companies are doing a poor job moderating bullying on their platforms, what changes do we think might help? We share the online harassment we've seen first hand, but also turn the scipt on ourselves: is it possible we've ever bullied someone online? Patrons sound off and share their own stories, proving that social media is, indeed, a dumpster fire.

About Us On HORSE, we don’t analyze wins and losses. We talk beefs, dig into Internet drama, and have fun. The NBA is now a 365-day league and it's never been more present in pop culture. From Kevin Durant's burner accounts to LeBron taking his talents anywhere to trusting the Process, the NBA is becoming a pop culture requirement. At the same time, sports can have gatekeepers that make it insular and frustrating for people who aren't die hard fans. We’re here to prove that basketball is entertaining to follow for all fans, whether you’re actively watching the games or not. Recently featured in The New York Times!

Erin and Melody
Ep. 173 - The Red by Tiffany Reisz (RERELEASE)
Hey HBs, happy third week of hiatus! We're bringing one of our faves in the back catalogue. THE RED by Tiffany Reisz! It's an erotic fantasy novel about a fiery gallery owner who's in debt and on the brink of losing everything and the mysterious man who wants to help her save it... for a price. He's not interested in her soul, though, he wants her BODY. Yum! Bonus Content: Ember's newest skill, Erin's trip to IL, wedding dress shopping, a discussion on using the term "whore" in the most empowering and delicious way, reclaiming the word cunt, and the segments *Bing Boong Bong* "safe sex work with Melody," "do your fucking job with Melody," "sex with mythical creatures with Erin," Melody's favorite alternate universe, and Erin's feelings on masquerade masks. Plus, MINOTAUR DONG. And does our podcast have a low-key new theme? Strap in and maybe strap on. You're gonna need all your resources for this one. Lady Loves: Melody: Email or tween an author to tell them how much you love their work. Sometimes making other people feel great and know their worth is such a lovely pick-me-up. Erin: To All the Boys I've Loved Before and Love Simon. Sunshine, rainbows, and feel good films! Get them in your brain!
