We've reached the point of Book 6 where things start getting dark, abusive, and generally uncomfy. The Wilsons are talking Amortentia and the power of scent, a Slughorn/Frankenfurter mashup, the definition of happiness, Bob Ogden's Used Cars, and sympathy for Voldy? No wonder this is a long one.

This week, it's all aboard the Sad Sluggy Express to head back to the Lawless Land that is Hogwarts. But before we narrowly miss dinner and have awkward moments with Hagrid, let's discuss Harry getting curb-stomped, Marietta's ongoing disfigurement, changing patronuses, and the compulsive need men seem to have to tell women to smile.

It seems all Kev needed to conquer two chapters for the first time this season was some of Molly Weasley's onion soup. This week, we're talking The Burrow, French Girls, and getting goosed by a Probity Probe. Plus: the Charmin Baby rumor, ring composition, and a visit from Draco MalKev!
Dumbledore's rare form continues this week as he plays Slughorn (and Harry) like a fiddle. The Wilsons return to the subject of The Greatest Wizard of All Time's bathroom habits, Kev casts Slughorn with a very unlikely actor, and Sluggy's hometown is re-christened...Budlight Bubblebath.
Another day, another Dumbledore FLEX chapter. This week, The Wilsons are celebrating his annihilation of The Dursleys and their incredibly bad manners as they dive into Chapter 3 of Half Blood Prince, 'Will and Won't'. Is Hogwarts just an orphanage for unwanted house elves? Why are both Amanda and Kev falling asleep during major medical tests? And oh hey Kevin Bacon!
It's time for Spinner's End and fair warning there are a LOT of threesome jokes. Does Kev believe a word Snape is saying to Bellatrix and Narcissa? And what did he get REALLY wrong about the Unbreakable Vow? Plus, Amanda and Kev talk roller skating songs, history in the Wizarding World, and Nicholas Cage.
WE’RE BACK FOXIES! It’s time for Season 6, and Kev has set us a slow pace from the jump when he decided The Other Minister was so chock-full of conspiratorial goodness it deserved it’s own episode. We’re talking cover-ups, Billy Bob Thornton, our complete ineptitude with British government, and of course- aliens.
This week, The Wilsons are tackling some listener questions that didn't make it into Season 5. What are the rules about metamorphmagi? Where would Amanda and Kev go on wizarding vacation? How does having and not having ADHD impact consumption of a fandom? Where the EFF are Harry's grandparents?? The answers to these, and many more, in this Episode of Requirement.

We've wrapped up another book and you know what that means! It's time for another review of everything the great Seer Kevlawney got right, wrong, and in-between throughout Season 5. Join us as we revisit every Book 5 prophecy- from the so-spot-on-it-gave-Amanda-chills-when-he-said-it to the OOF-that-was-a-big-swing-and-a-miss. Plus, our upcoming schedule for the next few weeks and a special surprise for a recently-injured Kev. Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)
The Wilsons may have read the final words of Book 5, but that doesn’t mean they’re done with The Order of The Phoenix just yet. It’s time for another MOVIE EPISODE! And while Amanda and Kev have some big compliments to give, the first film of the David Yates-era isn’t getting out of this one completely unscathed. Plus, The Wilsons talk recasting and cinematic marriage lessons! Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)
It's the final chapter of Order of the Phoenix and The Wilsons are reflecting on which war is beginning at this moment and why it's not the one you think, Harry is a ghost, weird centaur sex stuff, ice dancing, and the band Train. Plus, our very first Book-long Ultimate Winners and Losers with feedback from you! Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)
The Wilsons are back to Mortal Kombat "FINISH HIM" your feelings with the second half of "The Lost Prophecy" and for good measure Amanda's accepting Dumbledore's apologies but keeping him the hook for a few things, Kev's got some thoughts on the Fountain of Magical Brethren, and the emotional roller coaster evens out with a Richard Marx sing-along.

For the first time in FFH history, a single chapter requires two weeks to cover. There are just that many emotions. It's time for Kev (and Harry too we suppose) to learn the truth about The Lost Prophecy, and The Wilsons are processing some grief in the process. We won't lie to you: it's not an entirely smooth journey, but in true Wilson fashion, there are some laughs (and Seinfeld references) among the tears.

It's time for the epic showdown between old Snakeface and the only one he ever feared and there's a lot to unpack. But before that, we gotta twist last week's knife just a little bit more by dissecting the gut-punch that is how Harry knows Sirius is really gone, talk about Harry's major BDE with Bellatrix, and discuss Amanda's super-human hearing.

Guys, if you skip Beyond The Veil it doesn’t change the outcome. The Golden and Silver Trios have made it to the Department of Mysteries, where noses will be broken and tears will be shed. Join us as we talk baby-headed Death Eaters, demand the head of the literal worst Bellatrix Lestrange, and pour one out for the homiest of the homies Sirius Black.

It's been a totally normal and completely uneventful week here in America, there's absolutely nothing to see here, definitely nothing causing anxiety and OH what a coincidence it's the same deal at ol' Hoggy Warty Hogwarts. Just totally normal. No visions, no sadistic Headmistrisses, no violent Centaurs...yeah you get the idea. Just- meet us in here and we'll talk about it.

It's a new year, and The Wilsons are barreling through two chapters faster than Hagrid on his way to visit the 16-foot tall burden he's about to put on a couple of children. But beyond Grawp and the West Side Centaur Story, your hosts are also diving deep into O.W.L.s, Auror brutality, and Harry's terrifying vision at the end of Chapter 31. We're closing in on the end of Order of the Phoenix and Kev's hunger for war is only growing. Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)
Harry's having an existential crisis and the only cure is a highly illegal conversation with his escaped convict godfather! The Wilsons are tackling Chapter 29 as their last episode of 2020 before they send this year back to hell where it belongs, and covering the career paths they would want to follow in the Wizarding World, a sound that has Kev wanting to "peel the skin off his own face", and what exactly the Property Brothers would have in mind for Grimmauld Place.
