This week Kyle and Matthew sit down with Harry Potter fanatics Laura Knight and Klee Wiggins to talk about their love for the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. They feel like this 1920s take on the Harry Potter universe got a bad rap. They like the series and how it has reinvigorated the franchise and kept them from Harry Potter withdrawals. They discuss their favorite fantastic beasts, Dumbledore's middle names, what's the deal with Grindelwald, magical racism vs. just regular racism, how the current political climate has affected their re-reading of the books, and what was really going on with Moaning Myrtle. Plus, they debate Snape, and Kyle still hates all the camping in the 7th book. This episode is sponsored by Loot Crate. Give yourself a geeky gift this month!
