Episode 23

On our January 09th, 2006 edition of MuggleCast…

Is Dumbledore dead, or is he alive? That is the question. Could his association with the phoenix explain why he has so many middle names? Was Fawkes taking a nap the night of Dumbledore’s death? And just what did happen to his wand? Plus, was the Headmaster’s greatest mistake offering Tom Riddle enrollment at Hogwarts?
