EPISODE 4 – Harry Who?
If you are under the impression that there will be “no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations” on this week’s episode, you have got the wrong show! This week Jinnie joins Shawn as co-host and they welcome Keisha and Clement to the show to discuss all things Harry Potter! As it turns out, Jinnie has never read the books, and Keisha and Clement are on hand to tell her just the big deal is all about. If you’re new to the Potterverse or an avid Potterhead, this is a show you won’t want to miss!
