This week’s episode wraps up our Wizarding World marathon as we tack all three Fantastic Beasts films. But before that, we spend quite a bit of time discussing our favorites from San Diego Comic Con.
2:17 – Some of our favorites from San Diego Comic Con (Multiverse – Avengers: Secret Wars and Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, Wakanda Forever, Ironheart, Daredevil: Born Again, Thunderbolts, Walking Dead 6 episode mini with Rick and Michonne)

This is the conclusion to our Harry Potter franchise before we jump into the Fantastic Beasts series next. Did the 7th films have the payoff we hoped for? Did our favorite characters survive He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named? Did Jasmin change her mind about Dobby? All these and SO MUCH MORE are answered as we bring the franchise to a close!

We switched up our recording schedule so Mark could stay up late and hang with our friends over at the Pop Culture Philosophers! Be sure to give that episode a listen AFTER you hear what we have to say about Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Also, Mark is finally sorted — can you guess which house he’s in?
