We’re doing our best to have a good time at this dance, but the drama at Hogwarts may just turn this evening on its head. You’ve got a date with Alison, Katy, Michael and guest host, Howl, for a night full of magic and intrigue at “The Yule Ball,” chapter 23 of Goblet of Fire.
Hermione is the belle of the ball, but even on this special evening, the magic of the night is fleeting.
When J. K. Rowling “outed” Dumbledore, it sent shock waves around the world. Now, ten years since that revelation, we explore how far the Harry Potter series has come, and how far it still has to go.

The most debated character in the Harry Potter series continues to incite controversy, even 20 years after his first appearance and 10 years after his death on the page. Join Katy and Michael, along with long-time listeners David (daveybjones999) and Jessica (MoodyHorcrux) as they reopen the Dumbledore on the “always” intriguing Potions Master, Severus Snape.
