Travel with us around the globe as we examine how different languages translated the words but maintained the magic of J. K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. Michael, along with SpeakBeasty host Aurelia and three very special guests, Camille, Marjolaine and Simé, are your guides as we examine the Languages and Translations of Harry Potter.
It’s the day of the Quidditch tryouts, but despite all of the excitement in the air, even breakfast isn’t fun anymore as Voldemort quietly returns to power. Don’t worry, though! Hermione’s got everything covered. Join hosts Alison, Beth, Michael and guest host Rita, as they get some much needed assistance from “Hermione’s Helping Hand,” chapter 11 of Half-Blood Prince.
Harry is ready to plan his journey, but Molly Weasley has a few plans of her own that might put an end to everything. Explore the Burrow’s attic with hosts Alison, Eric and Michael, along with guest host Amy, as they take a peek at “The Ghoul in Pajamas,” Chapter 6 of Deathly Hallows.
It’s time for another trip to Hogsmeade, but as the war draws closer to Hogwarts’ front door, this visit will be unlike any we’ve had before. Come along with Kristen, Michael, Rosie and fan guest host, Jessie (jessfudd on the main site), as they delicately handle the “Silver and Opals” strewn throughout Chapter 12 of Half-Blood Prince.
