Draco reverts back to his early-series-villain-self in the fifth book, taking his antagonism to new lows as he scripts highly creative lyrics, tries out many different angles to try to provoke Harry, and revels in his roles as a prefect and on the Inquisitorial Squad.

OH NO YOU DON'T, LADDIE! It's time for Draco's arc in the fourth book!

This podcast has gone to the dogs as Alice and Martha analyze Draco in the third book.

Alice and Martha round out their conversation about Hermione, discussing her arc in the seventh book.

Alice and Martha are back to continue their discussion of Hermione, covering her arc in the fifth book.

Please consider supporting us on Patreon!…
 
Alice and Martha kick off the remainder of their series about Herm-oh-ninny, with Part 3 very logically covering Book 4.

The Real Weird Sisters are joined again by recurring guest Shut Up Tim to review what is quite possibly the worst five minute chunk of Prisoner of Azkaban.

Alice and Martha won't be whistling "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" on this episode, but there's still plenty to laugh at in this discussion of Uncle Vernon in books 3 - 7.

At long last, Alice and Martha discuss Queen McGonagall in the first book!

Care for a game of Exploding Snap? NO, we don't either. And watch where you sit - Crookshanks might already be there!

Mosag's husband, Aragog, is the topic of conversation this week, even if Martha's impression isn't quite what it use to be. (Or maybe it's exactly as it always was? We're not quite sure.)
