Three adult women talk via Google Hangout once a month about Harry Potter, a series of books for children. Jokes are made, nonsense is shared, fun is had. Lives are changed? Who can say?
||ExplicitEpisode 19 — Wackadoodle||Hello, friends and lovers! Welcome to this very, very late episode. Join us as we try to answer listener questions, and get sidetracked by snakes and soccer!

"I thought a lot about this, I'd be Voldemort."
Really funny and a great break from the perfectly edited and polished podcasts I've become so used to.
I love the character breakdowns and hearing about how you all related to each of them in different ways. Can't wait to listen to more.
You'll never hear "These Dreams" the same way again after listening to Lauren, Cherie, and Dayle talk about the beloved book series of "Harry Potter." Grab a Butterbeer and settle in for a podcast about all things Harry Potter.
