Your favorite Harry Potter podcast about all things wizarding world canon! Each episode we dive deep into the stories, pulling out familiar, not-so-familiar, and at times downright arcane tidbits of Harry Potter lore and discuss their implications on the story. How do ghosts have musical instruments, did they die with them? Would you be more afraid of falling off a flying carpet or an invisible Thestral? Why does every snack and candy at Honeydukes carry a threat of bodily harm? All this and more are discussed each month on Hold My Butterbeer.
