Yes, there will be more to come, though I might drop the monotonous tone and the brevity and all that jazz. Expect more fun, energy, depth, and Harry Potter-related joy. Also, there will be much discussion about the plots, themes, characters, movies (maybe), and any other connection I can make. Do not expect this to be a huge, commercialized, super popular podcast; it will probably (and hopefully) stay small and nice. And thanks to the (as of now) 12 subscribers, and the like 8 people who downloaded the ever-crappy Episode #1.
Also, I am considering looking for some co-hosts. If you are interested, email me an audio clip at firstname.lastname@example.org (in an attatched mp3 file, a youtube video, or something like that; make sure I can find it from the email) including the following:
Your background info
How you got into the HP fandom
Whether or not Dumbledore was a Machiavellian, controlling chess master, and why
How much you like Harry Potter, and what kind of fan you are (literary, fandom, wizard rock, HP walking encyclopedia, etc.)
How you feel about Harry Potter as a work of Literature and a cultural phenomenon
In the e-mail, in text form if you want, include your knowledge in computers, audio editing, English, and anything else you consider relevant.
The first episode of Hogwarts Universe Talk is out! I discuss Beedle, including each of the 5 tales, as well as some insight on Dumbledore’s commentary, and what the stories really mean. Do not listen to if you haven’t read the book, as it may be difficult to follow.
Tonight at 12:01 am (Thursday) The Tales of Beedle the Bard will be released to the public, all around the world. It may not be as exciting as Deathly Hallows, but I think it’s enough to get excited about! How can Harry Potter fans not buy it?
It’s a book written by J.K. Rowling, first of all. It’s the first we’re really seeing into the HP world after DH, so we can learn more about their culture and life, especially of non-Hogwarts stuff. We can see how normal wizards interact, as well as how they are with 16th century Muggles. Then, there’s Dumbledore’s commentary, which I am really excited about! Albud Dumbledore is speaking from beyond the grave with his personal notes on the Tales, which he obviously saw as deeper than just children’s stories. Which leads me to my next point, these tales are fairy tales! They are a great insight of the moral/ethical values of wizards–the ones indoctrinated when they’re children by their parents. It should also show us JKR’s morals, and probably some of the themes of the Potter books that we’ve seen so far.
So there’s probably something for any Potter fan in these Tales, from Dumbledore character development to fun old literary analysis. Why aren’t 400,000,000 copies being printed then?
Hello! This is Arka; you may have seen me in my blog, my youtube videos, or anywhere else online! I’ve decided to start a podcast and news site for all thing Harry Potter (that I find relevent or interesting). Expect a first episode of the podcast by ≈ December 4th, depending on whether or not I actually get around to it. That episode, if produced, will probably focus on the then released Tales of Beedle the Bard.
This will probably not be a huge site like Mugglenet or Leaky but it may amount to something, whether it has 10 or 10,000 viewers/listeners. Remember, I’m not guaranteeing anything, but I might actually have a podcast starting. Don’t have any hosts yet, but looking into it…
