Welcome back to Advanced Muggle Studies!

This week, we discuss: isolating Harry; the Diagon Alley of our dreams; Old Mother Hubbard, meet Hannibal Lecter; the gloriously fun history of hags; do not fuck with Baba Yaga; diabetes does not exist in the wizarding world; Harry Potter and the Responsibly Spent Budget; do these people know they have magic?; unfogging the future with Cassandra; Mrs. Longbottom’s future grudge against Harry; how do creatures get magical?; Ron’s new wand; misdirection and puffskeins; Crookshanks knows what’s up; God, I hope everyone has read the book already because we spoil it for you now; the mysterious disappearing Azkaban guards; movie Fred and George get the shaft; the travails of Percy Weasley; Sirius Black, tragic figure; seriously, you better have read this thing or else don’t care about spoilers; Bighead Boy and CAPS-LOCK HARRY; and mirrors give us all words to live by.
