Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) W/ Holden McNeely

Holden McNeely, cohost of Wizard And The Bruiser and Page 7 podcasts, joins the show to talk about wanting to wear Emma Thompson’s skin, lessons his grandmother taught him, and, of course, the 3rd Harry Potter film: The Prisoner of Azkaban!     Topics include: piles of dead kids on the quidditch pitch, spider night terrors, recreational drugs in the Wizarding World, Lupin giving Harry candy, Hermione being the real MVP of this film, and more.    Also, what would a real 13 year old do with an invisibility cloak, time travel machine, and a map that shows the whereabouts of everyone in the castle? Hint: it starts with "master" and ends with "bate." Why didn’t Lupin or Sirius take 5 seconds to tell the kids that they didn’t want to kill them? How could Lupin not know there was a full moon?  And how about the irony of being a werewolf and having your last name translate to Wolf in Latin?   Also, Max shares a story about Emma Watson being teased at Brown and much more on an all new episode, so hide your kids because this show is about to get nasty.    TV/ Movie recommendations: Bill- Firefly  Holden- Mrs America Tim- Law & Order SUV…not SVU Max- Rear Window  John- Ken Burn’s Country Music…actually all and any Ken Burns docs for that matter   You can find Holden on twitter @holdenators and twitch at holdenatorsho You can check out Wizard and the Bruiser and Page 7 podcasts exclusively on Spotify    Hold My Popcorn is brought to you by Ballsy!
