Alohomora
Alohomora! was created to fill the void following the final Harry Potter movie release. Led by a rotation of voices of the weekly podcast, fans can now re-read the books alongside tens of thousands online and across the world. The podcast also has a real fan (yes, a real fan! YOU!) come on the show to share their own theories and partake in the fun by being a Guest Fan Host. Hosts Kat Miller, Caleb Graves, Eric Scull, Laura Reilly, Noah Fried, and Michael Harle return to LeakyCon to explore themes, ideas, and theories straight from the Potter series. Special fandom guests including Warwick Davis, Ellie Darcey-Alden, Rohan Gotobed, Benedict Clarke, and Lev Grossman are staples of the show, so this is one conversation you don't want to miss. Come join them as they Open the Dumbledore!

Game of Owns Podcast Live!
Acclaimed author George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series will span seven books, five of which are published. And from them, HBO has adapted "Game of Thrones," a hugely popular fantasy TV series. In doing this, however, the fan base became divided. There are those who have read the books, and those who remain blissfully ignorant of them, choosing instead to rely on TV for the full story. This year at LeakyCon, the hosts of Game of Owns will guide panel discussion exploring the benefits of each position, with help from other popular book-to-screen adaptations, including the recent magical 7-book series, "Harry Potter."

Not the Last PotterCast
John, Melissa, and Frankie were totally serious about ending PotterCast at the end of last year's LeakyCon. But then J.K. Rowling announced that she's writing sixteen books and four hundred movies and there's a new park and maybe a Harry Potter play, musical, biopic, and epic historical drama for TBS in the works. Basically, every time we think we're out, she pulls us back in. So we're back! We'll discuss the lastest in HP, play some games, discuss the confeerence, and have a nice, relaxing, podcast together. With fewer tears this time.
