E82: Our belated Christmas special is another classically rambling debate. Scrooge vs Scrooge, duck vs human, Disney vs Dickens $65 billion of amassed duck fortune  vs one meagre 19th century London counting house.... Happy holidays to all and see you in 2020! --- Send in a voice message:
E81: After a three month hiatus and busy schedules, Will and Alex are back in a room together and they haven't missed an overthinking beat!

Topics for discussion: why is Cedric Diggory in Hufflepuff, do Death Eaters celebrate Voldemort day and is this the worst spectator sport in the combined wizard-Muggle worlds?
