It's British Christmas! (Book 5, Chapter 23)

It’s that special time of year we all know and love- softly-falling snow, biscuits in the oven, fairy lights gently twinkling all around. The kind of season in which wishes come true and nothing could possibly go wrong. Join us this week as we tiptoe into Yon Olde English Yuletide with The Boy Who Lived and his mates- watch as he obsesses for days about whether or not he’s actively being possessed, chuckle bemusedly as his loose-cannon godfather makes up deranged carols, and delight as our ragtag group of so-and-sos run into school friends whose parents were tortured into insanity. Ahhh Christmas. Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

Ginny and The Jets (Book 5, Chapter 22)

Flashback to Election Night 2020, and The Wilsons were distracting themselves by tackling the next chapter in Order of The Phoenix . And considering copious amounts of bourbon were involved, things got a bit weird. What are strip clubs called in the Wizarding World? Did Kev think Arthur Weasley was going to die? And who’s the biggest Elliott Smith fan: Lupin or Sirius? Plus: Phyllis Diller, Crocs, and The Softer Side of SEARS. Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

Karkus the Gurg (Book 5, Chapters 20-21)

Giants? Giants! This week, Kev finally got to learn a bit about the larger members of the Wizarding World, and has emerged with at least three new metal band names. With Hagrid’s head wound somehow still bleeding and Hermione’s very good advice once again dismissed, The Wilsons are tackling anger tears, the very improperly-named Forbidden Forest, kissing (oh my!), and an incredibly troubling cliffhanger. Plus: the time Kev got held by his ankles by an actual giant, a Bear zoo, Amanda is Neville, and much more. Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

You Need To Find An Adult (Book 5, Chapters 18-19)

It’s the first meeting of Dumbledore’s Army, the Quidditch pitch is getting a little bloody, and Ron is having a nervous breakdown. In addition to Kev’s stirring rendition of “Weasley Is Our King”, The Wilsons are covering the burning (and in some cases very sore) questions we’re all asking ourselves this week: What moment has fully solidified Umbridge’s totalitarian regime? Where exactly are the twins’ exploding boils? Why does Kev not trust Dobby? And can Dumbledore, in fact, control his bowels? Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

I Love The Smell Of Wizard Boys In The Morning (Book 5, Chapters 16-17)

After taking a week off to celebrate their first anniversary of wedded bliss, your hosts are diving right back into Order of The Phoenix and already fighting- this time about Harry’s work ethic as a student. Kev has some questions about the physics of Vanishing Spells, Amanda is upset about kittens, someone is sniffing someone’s bum (sigh), and Kev thinks two members of the Hogwarts staff might be secretly dating. Plus: Sex and the Country, the return of Cookie Monster Krum, and early voting energy. Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

Anniversary Minisode- More Questions for You!

While The Wilsons celebrate their first anniversary, they have some burning questions for you! Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

Spooky Horse (Book 5, Chapters 14-15)

Tension is about as thick in the walls of Hogwarts as whatever potion Neville is probably screwing up at the moment, and while the Wilsons think they know the main cause (clears her throat a lot, is the literal worst), they also have a few stern words for people not named Umbridge. Plus, Amanda has important questions for Dean Thomas and complicated feelings about Sirius, Kev is already burnt-out on Quidditch, and your hosts are celebrating The Savage that is an observed Minerva McGonagall. Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

Trash Hats (Book 5, Chapter 13)

It’s time for detention with Dolores and her cat plates, and Kev has a few thoughts on her particular brand of punishment. And with Hermione trying to trick the house elves into freedom through knitting, The Wilsons see parallels to activism that’s all passion and no plan. Plus- Billy Zane, Amanda's tirade about telling women to “calm down”, Kev’s Malfoy voice, and (sigh) 50 Shades of Umbridge. Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

THIS B*tch (Book 5, Chapters 11-12)

Classes have started, Harry is having a BAD TIME, and Amanda and Kev are ready to diss some mommas, brew some benzos in Potions class, and discuss the propping up of the patriarchy by women who talk like children. Also: the sheer audacity of gatekeeping, boiled peanuts, biscuits, and Kev goes full QAnon about Umbridge. Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

Harry Sees Dead People (Book 5, Chapter 10)

We’re making a new friend this week as Kev meets Luna Lovegood for the first time. What can we learn from her (incredibly blunt) truth-telling? Amanda has some thoughts. Plus: The Wilsons analyze Harry’s dreams, why The Chosen One might actually be living in Steven King’s universe, Amanda’s pick for loser this week makes Kev mad, and MarioKart.

Sullenly Sirius (Book 5, Chapter 9)

This week, it’s all Prefects and Dead Children- or visions of dead children at least. Join Kev and Amanda as they awkwardly side-step their way out of the Ministry and jump straight into Harry’s angsty thoughts. Who does Kev see as walking parallel paths at this point in the series? Why are Dumbledore, Cornelius, and Eric the new Schuyler Sisters? And when can you expect the debut album from Tears With Buckbeak ? Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

Defund The Ministry (Book 5, Chapters 7-8)

This week, your hosts are leaving the “comfort” of Grimmauld Place and heading to the Ministry of Magic for Harry’s incredibly extra trial. Besides Madame Bones’s monocle and Dumbledore’s Flex-a-thon, The Wilsons are talking Wizarding patriarchy, crooked-ass Fudge, and Mick Jagger’s moves.

Thank You For Coming To My TED Tonks (Book 5, Chapter 6)

Continuing his slow and steady pace through Book 5, Kev determined ‘The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black’ to be worthy of its own episode this week! Join your hosts as they dive into the musty old tapestry containing the (very racist and terrible) Black Family, find out what McGonagall wears on her days off, and learn why Kev is surprisingly anti-Buckbeak these days (a fact Amanda may use as grounds for divorce). Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

50 Shades of Lupin (Book 5, Chapter 5)

The titular chapter yielded enough mystery, yelling, and spilled Butterbeer to inspire Kev to stop reading and your hosts to tackle their first single-chapter episode of Book 5. Oh, and they’re sleep deprived. This could get weird. Plus, conflabs, a discussion about the proliferation of unregistered animagi, and Kev's history as a candy thief and almost accidental arsonist. Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

Human Disaster (Book 5, Chapters 3-4)

Now that Kev knows the location of the Headquarters of The Order of The Phoenix, it’s time for some new faces, some reunions, and some good old-fashioned Percy-shaming. What’s Amanda’s major flaw? Will Kev successfully remember the term ‘metamorphmagus’ (he won’t)? And which one of The Wilsons once saw a tattooed penis? Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

O Captain, My Captain (Book 5, Chapters 1-2)

With a brand new and very angsty Harry, some incredibly interesting new info about Petunia, and Kev's brand-new fanfiction idea, Season 5 has begun! What character does Amanda harbor a secret love for? In what way is Harry already showing signs of PTSD? And can The Wilsons keep it together about Dudley's new nickname (spoiler alert: no they cannot)? Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)

Episode of Requirement: The Wilsons Try To Earn UK and Australian Citizenship

Before The Wilsons crack the spine of Book 5, Manager of Mischief Josh Bailey is quizzing them to see if they know enough about the UK and Australia to earn citizenship to either or (dare they dream?) both. Which slang phrase broke Amanda’s brain? What blunder brought Roller Coaster shame to Kev? And how did The Wilsons inadvertently cause a Civil War in the very nation they are trying to enter? Note: **In one of the slang questions, a typing error changed “Pig In a Ginnel” to “Big In a Ginnel”- we realized it after recording but rest assured, we know now that it was an error. Whoops.

Dumblegore's Revenge: The Kevlawney Prophecy Round-Up of Book 4

It’s that time again! Time to revisit the wise seeings of Professor Kevlawney as he navigated through Goblet of Fire for the first time. How many prophecies proved that his inner eye was calibrated correctly, and how many prove that the tea leaves were nothing more than the shadows from Sam Elliott’s mustache? Also, why is so much of this episode done as Sam Elliott? Support the show (http://patreon.com/thefoxandthefoxhound)
