Episode 44: SlytherPuff

Hello magical friends! Especially Nancy, the newest member of the WZRD Patreon, whose support lets me do these interviews. I’m your hostwitch Bess and today I’m talking to Slytherpuff! It’s good to see such strong inter-house cooperation, don’t you think?

I also need to notes that I had significant technical difficulties this week, so while I’ve done my best, the sound quality is a little strange in the second half of the interview. Fortunately, it’s just on my end so you’ll be able to enjoy Slytherpuff just fine.

Speaking of my magical Patreon friends, I had so much fun talking to this month’s guest, that I couldn’t bear to cut it all, so patrons are getting a special extended version of our conversation. But don’t worry if you’re not a patron; this version is still excellent.
