Episode 31: Harry and Mione's Horcrux Hunt (Part 2)

September 17, 2018

 Whew. Here we go. Second week in a row! We hope you’re ready for the continuation of this nonsense. Don’t forget, we left Harry and Mione in the Disney princess forest deciding if they should trust Bellatrix (who just emerged from a bush). So it can only get crazier from here.

Reach the final installment of this story to get the prize at the end, our recommendation!

Episode 30: Harry and Mione's Horcrux Hunt (Part 1)

September 10, 2018

We’re trying out something new this time… get ready for a story in three parts, three weeks in a row! That’s right, this time you won’t have to wait two weeks to hear our monotone voices dripping with sarcasm. Tune in next week for part two of three, and make A MILLION PREDICTIONS so you too can go STRAIGHT TO THE POINTS MOON.
