This is “Gryffindor Bias” by my very own Slytherspouse.

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.

Ep 16: Ariel Factor Birdoff

Transcript:

Hello magical friends, especially my WZRD Radio patrons whose support not only makes these episodes possible, but who have enabled me to make our first donation to the Yes All Witches grant this month!

I’m your hostwitch Bess and today’s special guest is Ariel Factor Birdoff of Madam Pince and the Librarians. In “Rogue Librarian” she overthrew both The Author and Dewey of the decimal system so it’s safe to say she’s got a lot going on.
