About

Amanda and Kevin Wilson went on their first date on May 15th, 2010.

While Amanda is a devoted Harry Potter fan, Kevin had somehow made it into his 40s without ever reading the books. Against all odds, Amanda still agreed to marry him in spite of this, and after 9 years of pestering Kevin finally agreed to see what all the fuss what about.

They decided to start The Fox and The Foxhound: Love, Marriage, and Harry Potter in the weeks leading up to their marriage as a form of pre-marital self-counseling and a way to document Kevin’s reactions to the story as a first-time adult reader.

Amanda and Kevin were married on October 12th, 2019 and continue to learn more about each other every week making the show. They live in North Carolina with their cats Cozy and Charlie.

About the Hosts

Amanda Wilson

Co-Host

Amanda isn't just a huge dork about HP. She also enjoys YouTube videos about Teslas, her skincare regimen, and a good cult documentary. Besides 'co-host of FFH and wifey to Mr. Wilson', her favorite role is kitty mom- and she has numerous original songs to prove it.

Kevin Wilson

Co-Host

Before becoming Fawkes' number 1 fan, Kevin considered himself only an enthusiast of disc golf, being outside, and a solid IPA. When he's not developing elaborate HP conspiracy theories and hypothetical fanfics, you can find him falling asleep in front of the TV and snuggling his wife and both of his cats.

Judson Hurd

Composer

Judson Hurd grew up in the beautiful country of Paraguay. His first 'teacher' was an old instrumental piano cassette a missionary couple left after leaving the country. The expressive, folk, piano vibrations of Philip Aaberg (Judson's childhood idol) and the simple, romantic Latin culture had a creative impact on his music.

After years of being self-taught and improvising smooth, cool grooves over Bach inventions his family moved to Ciudad Del Este where he began his formal studies at the Franz Schubert Conservatory. At the age of 12 Judson Hurd rose to be one of the prominent youth pianists of Paraguay. He went on to study music theory and composition at Young Harris College and the UNC Greensboro School of Music.

Judson now resides in Wilmington, North Carolina where he is still moving audiences through his music. His music has reached over 2,000,000 views on YouTube. He writes music for radio, TV, including companies Android, Jaguar, Land Rover, the Oprah Show, PBS, recorded countless session work, and has opened for Gavin Degraw, Five For Fighting, Building 429, and many others. He made his Carnegie Hall debut in October 2015.
