5.17 Educational Decree Number Twenty-Four
1:32:56
Alice and Martha find themselves wholeheartedly agreeing with Lav-Lav about Hedwig, Harry, Ron, and Neville get in trouble for “fighting,” and Angelina can’t stop obsessing about Quidditch. Meanwhile, Snuffles is back on speaking terms with Harry, and Umbridge is getting her stubby hands in the middle of everything (literally and figuratively). We hope this episode will be... <a class="excerpt-read-more" href="http://www.realweirdsisters.com/5-17-educational-decree-number-twenty-four/" title="Read 5.17 Educational Decree Number Twenty-Four">Read more</a>

5.16 In the Hog’s Head
1:36:35
Hermione gathers approximately 25 of her best friends for an informational meeting at the Hog’s Head, even though the Three Broomsticks probably would have been a safer bet (she’s got a LOT to learn). Fred and George order everyone butterbeers, and then weasel out of paying for them. And Harry finally has the opportunity to execute some of the... <a class="excerpt-read-more" href="http://www.realweirdsisters.com/5-16-in-the-hogs-head/" title="Read 5.16 In the Hog’s Head">Read more</a>

5.15 The Hogwarts High Inquisitor
1:27:39
Strong females dominate this chapter, as Queens McGonagall and Grubbly-Plank take on the newly appointed Hogwarts High Inquisitor and Hermione comes up with the idea of forming the D.A.! Harry, on the other hand, struggles to keep his temper under control and receives a D on his potions homework (information he would rather keep private).... <a class="excerpt-read-more" href="http://www.realweirdsisters.com/5-15-the-hogwarts-high-inquisitor/" title="Read 5.15 The Hogwarts High Inquisitor">Read more</a>

5.14 Percy and Padfoot
1:14:50
Harry the Sneaky Codemaster is back, which means that unfortunately, “Snuffles” is too. Quidditch practice is completely lousy, but it definitely isn’t Ron’s fault! And finally, Percy reveals himself as the world’s biggest git.  Please consider supporting us on Patreon! www.patreon.com/realweirdsisters. Spoiler warning!

5.13 Detention with Dolores
1:33:53
Hermione knits hats for House Elves (she’s getting better, she can do patterns and bobbles and all sorts of things now!), Ron has the sickest burn of the book so far, and Harry spends four miserable detentions with the evil, twisted, mad, old toad. Listen to this episode for as long as it takes for the message to sink... <a class="excerpt-read-more" href="http://www.realweirdsisters.com/5-13-detention-with-dolores/" title="Read 5.13 Detention with Dolores">Read more</a>

5.12 Professor Umbridge
1:46:12
Ooh, Crackpot’s feeling cranky! This chapter is a bigger downer than double potions with the Slytherins (and if that means we’re supposed to get to get matey with them, fat chance). Harry just can’t handle Ron and Hermione bickering anymore, he’s mortified when he puts his foot in his mouth with Cho, and he’s livid when Snape vanishes... <a class="excerpt-read-more" href="http://www.realweirdsisters.com/5-12-professor-umbridge/" title="Read 5.12 Professor Umbridge">Read more</a>

5.10 Luna Lovegood
1:27:13
Alice and Martha admire JK Rowling’s ability to write chaotic scenes, as evidenced several times throughout Harry’s hectic journey back to Hogwarts. The first appearance of Luna Lovegood, the mention of Stubby Boardman and Doris Purkiss, and the return of Wilhelmina, AKA “Queen” Grubbly-Plank make this week’s Real Weirdo the toughest decision in recent memory!
