Lupin regifts Harry the Marauder's Map forever connecting him with his father How did Dumbledore manage to convince Fudge that Lupin didn't aid Sirius? Harry is upset that Pettigrew got away, but Dumbledore tells him his choices made all of the difference. Does this moment feel authentically Dumbledore? Does it make more sense that they gave these lines to Lupin in the movie? By gifting Pigwidgeon to Ron, is Sirius trying to further endear himself to Harry? We analyze the book coming full circle and the balance of power shifting at Privet Drive Prophecies & Animagi - there ARE some things Dumbledore doesn't know!

We unleash our new "Severus Lie Count" right in the nick of time! Is Snape pointing out the uneven leniency given to Harry helpful or harmful to his cause? He sure knows how to play Fudge. Could Snape actually secretly believe Harry and Hermione's side of events? Once Hermione busts out the Time-Turner to save the day we must ask: is traveling in time morally correct? What alternatives must there have been to giving Hermione a Time-Turner at age 13? What gives Dumbledore the authority to play God in this situation? What If: The Time-turning sequence all went wrong? We review why Time Turners may have been more hassle for the author than a help, and ask if it was worth it. Quizzitch: At the end of term, who arrives to see Lupin after Harry does? Next week: Chapter 22: Owl Post Again, the FINAL CHAPTER of POA!

  • 624: Where's the Moonscreen? (POA Chapter 20, The Dementor's Kiss)
    KISSY KISSY! This week, be sure to put on your chapstick because the Dementors are ready to pucker up! Join our hosts as they exit the Whomping Willow and attempt to tackle what awaits them on the Hogwarts grounds. Chapter-by-Chapter continues with Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 20: The Dementor's Kiss 7-Word Summary: Chaos ensues on Hogwarts grounds under moonlight WHAT IF... Peter hadn’t escaped and Sirius’ innocence had been proven? Would Dumbledore have been forced to explain Harry’s blood protection sooner? Would the Ministry have allowed Harry to live with Sirius? Do we think Sirius is mature enough or in the right state of mind to care for Harry? Does it cross Lupin's mind at all that if the moon comes out, they’re screwed?  Why is Pettigrew not completely immobilized?  We rate Lupin's transformation: did the book vs. the movie do it better? Lupin can be controlled by his Animagus friends, but Sirius doesn’t have much luck - is he out of practice?  Soooo, Harry and Hermione are totally cool leaving Ron and Snape helpless with a werewolf running around while they go tend to Sirius? Why doesn't Harry's thought of living with Sirius work on the Dementors? Connecting The Threads: Harry attempts to save Sirius in both Prisoner of Azkaban and Order of the Phoenix Quizzitch: How old was Sirius Black when he played the trick on Snape with Lupin? Next week: We're off, but we'll be releasing our live show from LeakyCon in Chicago! Don't forget! Year 2 of the MuggleCast Collectors Club is here!  Each year between now and 2026, we’re sending 4-5 exclusive, new stickers that celebrate the show’s past and present.

  • 623: Double Double-Crosser (POA Chapter 19, The Servant of Lord Voldemort)
    The rat is revealed! We finally understand the events of this school year at Hogwarts as well as how Sirius Black escaped from Azkaban prison. Join Andrew, Eric, Micah and Laura as they discuss Chapter 19 of Book 3, including asking whether Crookshanks should be punished for stealing the password sheet and whether Sirius was selfish for not being the Potter's Secret-Keeper. The MuggleCast Collectors Club stickers for 2023 have now been revealed! Pledge on Patreon at the $5 or $10 level by September 22 to receive this year’s stickers and the Club Card! Main Discussion: Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 19: The Servant of Lord Voldemort 7-Word Summary: Pettigrew begs Harry for forgiveness for murder Snape enters in full Prosecute Mode! Why can he not be swayed to consider alternate views? Do the Marauders know more than they indicate about Snape's feelings toward Lily? Would Snape have used an Unforgivable Curse in this moment? Would it have worked? What If? the Trio did not knock out Snape? How would events have unfolded differently? Micah has a theory on what Pettigrew's missing toe might signify. Should Crookshanks see punishment for stealing the Gryffindor password sheet for Sirius? Was Sirius selfish to push the Secret Keeping on to Peter? The hosts discuss. The real reason Pettigrew was in hiding is revealed and there's an unexpected connection to Book 6 Are the others Marauders to blame for Peter's poor choices? Harry comes into his own, and sparing Peter will have repercussions in Book 7... Quizzitch:  Who leads the group first out of the Shrieking Shack?
