Episode 36: Slytherin Weekend

Hello magical friends, and welcome to episode 36 of WZRD Radio. I’m your hostwitch Bess, and I hope you’re all bracing yourselves, because this is the month that something always happens at Hogwarts. Trolls and mass murderers and all sorts of chaos.

On that cheerful thought, let’s get to the music!

Here’s Diagon Alley with “The Leaky Cauldron.”
