Episode 60: Draco and the Malfoys

Hello magical friends, and welcome to WZRD Radio! I’m your hostwitch Bess, and today we’re talking to one of the originals. I’d make you guess, but you’ve probably seen the episode title so you know it’s Draco and the Malfoys! We actually talked for so long that my magical patrons are getting a special extended edition of the episode, over on Patreon.

Bradley and Brian are such delights and I know you can’t wait to hear what they have to say, but listen to your music first.
