Yes, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I feel like I’m forever struggling with balancing writing for work versus writing for me. But that’s a blog post for later.

For now, if you’ve missed me pontificating about quidditch, fear not! Alejo Enriquez of How to Play Quidditch invited me to join him and Harry Greenhouse for a podcast.

Alejo’s site is a cool resource for learning about the games, but the podcast is the real gem. He’s been looking for people who are knowledgeable about aspects of quidditch and bringing them on for podcasts. This pod’s topic was one close to my heart: college quidditch and how we as community players can help foster it. Give it a listen here.

Countdown to Kissimmee: Face Beat It Pool Party

The crew over at Face Beat It seem to enjoy the sound of my voice and my takes on quidditch, so I got into the pool with them for their US Quidditch Cup 10 Pool Party. Instead of sitting through a long podcast breaking down the whole tournament, waiting for the damn hosts to get to your team already, you can pick and choose which pools you want to listen to. I joined host Ryan Smythe (who continues to take his life into his hands every time he calls my team the Shrewts) for Pools 2 and 7.

I may not have written much this week, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t busy! I joined NewtCast this week to talk Fantastic Beasts. Check it out here if you’re ready to listen to movie (and screenplay!) spoilers. Prepare to listen to me gush about Jacob Kowalski, who may very well have become my new favorite J.K. Rowling character!
