    I’m guessing Selina is the guest host since it was revealed on the Hunger games Chat that she would be going to the Studio Tour.

    OMG after work i’m so listening to this!! and micah has the most dreamy voice!!

    I was laughing the entire time when you were talking about all your Pottermore wands. That was one of the most hilarious segments of Mugglenet ever! Wood, hard, stiff, bendy, flexible, fir, supple, 14 3/4 inches, etc, etc. So dirty and so hilarious.

    A question!
    From a scene in DH Part 2: The Great Hall, after Severus flees and just before Voldemort’s voice. Two little girls start screaming and covering their ears as if they can hear Voldemort’s voice before it even starts. This has always confused me–I don’t understand why they’re screaming.

    Please help clear this up–I know it’s a little off-topic but I keep forgetting to ask you guys. My first episode was 116, that amazing pig-for-slaughter discussion. Obviously I’ve been hooked ever since. Thanks!

      I kind of assumed that maybe they could sense the presence of Voldemort (not a physical presence, but like the presence of his power) and they were screaming from that. Or else the movie might have done it so that instead of magically enhancing his voice, he kind of spoke through them and that was why they were screaming.

      I’d like to hear the answer, too. You can tell that I have no real idea.

        I’m glad to hear someone else’s confusion, thanks! I’m not alone!

  • Eliza

    I know you were joking about this, but seriously, I live about 15 minutes from Leavesdon and there IS something in the water – most of the water around here tastes different to everywhere else because it comes from the chalky hills!
    Thanks for another hilarious episode, your studios discussion has got me so excited for when I go!
