The 2019 Father’s Day Special
Alice and Martha are joined by the Real Weird Dad to sort an assortment of fictional dads, and then joined by another very special guest, Grandpa Paul Krebill. Paul Krebill’s self-published books can be found at http://bit.ly/paulkrebillbooks an…
6.28 Flight of the Prince
It’s time for the titular reveal! Snape flees Hogwarts, but don’t you dare call him coward. Hagrid’s hut burns, claiming the lives of several poor, innocent Bowtruckles, but it’s nothin’ Dumbledore won’ be able to put righ’. And as usual, Hagrid ne…
6.27 The Lightning-Struck Tower
Come over to the right side… and by that we mean Dumbledore’s literal right side. You have to admit, it’s a tempting offer! But first, there’s time for a quick joy ride to Hogwarts (Accio Rosmerta’s Brooms!) and plenty of discussion of the limits o…
6.26 The Cave
Take a deep breath in and enjoy the salty air of the beautiful cliffs and coast. What a wonderful spot to take the orphans for a weekend getaway! It’s also a great spot for Harry to learn the true meaning of the conditions to which he agreed to com…
6.25 The Seer Overheard
The creature in Harry’s chest may be gone, but the seeker is overhead as Harry, Ginny, and Harry’s Hungarian Horntail tattoo spend the last carefree weeks of the series together. Meanwhile, Hermione is unpleasantly intentional, Trelawney is cracki…
The 2019 Mother’s Day Special
Two very special and long-awaited guests join Alice and Martha to celebrate Mother’s Day. Please consider supporting us on Patreon! www.patreon.com/realweirdsisters. Spoiler warning! Please be aware that our show contains spoilers for events…
6.24 Sectumpsempra
This chapter includes one of Harry’s — sorry, “Roonil’s” — lowest points in the series, but also some very positive moments for other characters, such as the creature in Harry’s chest. It just goes to show that our actions don’t always have consequ…
6.23 Horcruxes
Finally, with Slughorn’s original memory in hand, Dumbledore can tell Harry the truth. 100% of it! There’s nothing, absolutely nothing, that he’s keeping from Harry now. Alice and Martha debate the merits of censorship (and Alice seems suspiciously…
6.22 After the Burial
This podcast is covered in tear stains as we bid farewell to Aragog, king of arachnids. But before we get to that, there’s plenty of time to brew up something amusing, though hopefully not a curdled purple dumpling. And don’t worry, this episode is…
6.21 The Unknowable Room
The boy so solid he cannot Apparate half an inch across a room takes advantage of some extra practice sessions in Hogsmeade, while Harry continues to obsess over Malfoy and a very pretty girl who is standing guard over the Room of Requirement. Most…
6.20 Lord Voldemort’s Request
Two new queens have entered the scene, and they come in the form of a melting iced cake and the oldest house elf in the world. In other words, we’d be glad to see anything Miss Hepzibah has to show us, and we’ve never been more in sympathy with SPE…
6.19 Elf Tails
Ron spends some time recovering in the hospital wing, avoiding Lavender, and leaning into his true feelings for Er-my-nee. Harry spends his time obsessing over Malfoy, avoiding Lavender (and Cormac), and jumping to conclusions about Sn-I SHOULD NOT…
6.19 Elf Tales
Two real weirdos are back to talk about tales of elves — all 399 of them! That number is certainly significant, though not quite as significant as this chapter’s opening words: so, all in all. Wow. Brilliant. Really brilliant. You may be surprised …
6.18 Birthday Surprises
No shortcuts or cheats are going to help Harry during the most challenging Potions lesson of the year so far, so he resorts to sheer cheek–oh, he is his mother’s son! The sixth years begin Apparition lessons, though Harry’s not really fussed; after…
6.17 A Sluggish Memory
Harry and the gang return to Hogwarts via the Floo Network, and are sure not to get any ash on the carpet. In the fallout of the Fat Lady’s overindulgence over the holidays, Alice and Martha finally figure out the true meaning behind some of Lupin’…
6.16 A Very Frosty Christmas
It’s Christmas at the Burrow, and everyone is celebrating (except the poor garden gnome being held hostage on the top of the tree). The Weasley family listens to Celestina Warbeck’s marvelous tunes, with varying degrees of enthusiasm, and Harry tak…
6.15 The Unbreakable Vow
Slughorn’s Christmas party has everything we could ever ask for, from a real vampire (though sadly, it’s not Rufus Scrimgeour), to a Weird Sisters sighting. Harry spends the night dodging all his least favorite people, and the Queen Slug stoops to …
6.14 Felix Felicis
Awkward teenage romance features heavily in this chapter, which clearly served as the main inspiration for the makers of the sixth movie. Ron’s insecurities both on and off the Quidditch pitch lead to some very unfair and frustrating interactions w…
6.13 The Secret Riddle
In Dumbledore’s office, we dive deep into the Pensieve, a storytelling device that gets more and more convenient each week. Thankfully, Phineas is no longer there to give his commentary! We hear from old Caractacus Burke, see Jude Law drink gin, an…
Sorting Hat: U.S. Presidents
In this crossover episode, The Real Weird Sisters (Alice and Martha) are joined by special guest Amanda Frickle and Uncle Sam’s Sorting Hat to sort prominent U.S. presidents into Hogwarts houses. Be aware that the show contains spoilers from the…
6.12 Silver and Opals
It’s time for another Hogsmeade trip, but unfortunately for all of us, it’s just not as exciting as it used to be. Zonko’s is all boarded up, the weather is freezing, and Tonks/Eeyore is lurking on every corner. But, ooh, at least they have extra-l…
6.11 Hermione’s Helping Hand
Harry has his first foray into Quidditch captaincy, and frankly, he’s never been more fanciable. During the keeper tryouts, Hermione is a bit dishonest – she is a prefect after all! And after threatening to break down his front door, the trio final…
6.10 The House of Gaunt
The time is ripe for this chapter discussion, or at least, riper than it was for Humphrey Belcher’s cheese cauldron. Harry finds himself in Bob Ogden’s memory (though thankfully not in his outfit), Dumbledore is as enigmatic as ever about his hand …
6.9 The Half-Blood Prince
Harry, Ron, and Hermione enjoy their first few days back in classes such as Runes and Defense, though they continue to feel guilty about dropping Care. Snape tries his hand at interior decorating, and Slughorn discovers that Harry has indeed inheri…
6.8 Snape Victorious
Does the Hogwarts Express have a conductor? Is Episkey or Tergeo more useful? Is Tonks’s new Patronus a wolf, a werewolf, or an Alfonso werewolf? And what is the difference between chocolate gateau and chocolate cake? Alice and Martha are back to a…
