April 18th is Alohomora’s 7th anniversary – our most magical anniversary yet! So this episode will start off our seven-part series celebrating the staying power of Harry Potter, this podcast, and our listeners! The next seven episodes will be revisiting the first chapter of each of the seven novels along with some special guests. But to kick things off, we’re starting with a host-only show. Join Beth, Kat, Katy, and Michael as they discuss the chapter where it all began, “The Boy Who Lived,” chapter 1 of Philosopher’s / Sorcerer’s Stone.
Break out the Time Turners, because Alohomora’s going back! Back to the days where canon was open and anything was possible! Where detailed fan theories remained as-yet unproven and not disproved. How do these old school theories hold up today, how did they inspire us Then, and where did it all net out? This episode is a special look back at the boundless ingenuity of inspired minds of Harry Potter fans.
For our very last movie watch of the global re-read, we decided to pull out all the stops! Hosts Michael, Kat, Rosie, Alison, Kristen, and Eric take listener calls as they discuss Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part Two! Special guest John Richardson, Special Effects Supervisor for the ENTIRE Harry Potter series, joins us halfway through and takes your calls LIVE on the air.
We may only be half way through Deathly Hallows the novel, but we can’t WAIT to watch & discuss Deathly Hallows – Part One with all of our amazing listeners.
