Episode #616: Scabbergrew (POA Chapter 13, Gryffindor Versus Ravenclaw)

The friendship between Ron and Hermione receives its greatest test to date, while the friendship of your MuggleCast hosts remains solid as ever. We tackle Chapter 13 of Prisoner of Azkaban, “Gryffindor Versus Ravenclaw” and ask Micah all of the sports questions as it pertains to Harry’s new broom and Cho Chang’s sports tactics. There is also an appearance from Sirius Black, and four Slytherin students are busted but ultimately given a light slap on the wrist for their attempted sabotage. All of that and more on this week’s MuggleCast!
