Episode 4: Wayne, Hope and the Obnoxious Weasley

Wow.  Let me firstly apologize for the time it has been between episodes 3 and 4.  We are truly sorry for the great deal of time and our only excuse is that it seemed that fate was against us in getting this done.  That said, we now present Episode 4:  Wayne, Hope and the Obnoxious Weasley!! We discuss chapters 7 and 8 of Hope Poufwa-Style (, we lord Wayne’s talents all over the internet and we move that much closer to the final episode covering that which is Hope.  We hope you all enjoy it very much!!

Episode 4

Hello folks!

I know its been a while since you have heard from us, but we have just recorded Episode 4.  Real life has been a real jerk these past few weeks as we’ve tried to get everyone on board.  Things kept happening, happening, and then they would happen again.  Its in the can and our good friend, staffer and forum member Wayne has agreed to take care of the editing for us.  This guy is wonderful and does a really fantastic job, so I can’t wait to hear the finished product.

Episode Three: sexist!Kate, jerk!Harry and Alex Rodriguez

Hello everyone!

The third episode of The Hogs Head is finally out there! It took me a few extra days than I thought to get it done but it is here, and the quality is a lot better than before I feel. Join us, as we discuss chapters 5 and 6 of Hope by Jeconais. Listen as we talk about Harry, Gabrielle, the Voyeuristic Fisherman, and Gabrielles “super hot” mom!

We hope you all enjoy it!

P.S. There was a minor problem in volume in that my own voice was recorded lower.  You might have to turn it up a bit to hear me.  So sorry, it won’t happen again!

Episode 3

Finally got Episode 3 recorded tonight, covering chapters 5 and 6 of Hope.  It looks to be our longest episode thanks in part to growing length of chapters, and a bit of off topic fun as well.

Myself, Kate and Lalaith had a lot of fun recording this, and I think that will show once its released later this week.  Should be Friday at the latest!

The Hogs Head: Episode One Updated!

Hello again, everyone!  Just to re-iterate, our first podcast will be released on October 1st.  Also, we have finally chosen our first fic to cover!

“Hope” by Jeconais

A man who is lost in his own country.  A girl who needs her mate to survive.  A tale of Quidditch and romance, of anger and betrayal, of friendship and enmity.  A story of the power of hope.

I would suggest joining the Forums as well, if you haven’t already.  As this podcast approaches and is released, things will be picking up a great deal.  Check out that fic by Jeconais, and join us as delve deep into this great story!

The Dawning of an Era

The Harry Potter fandom is extremely diverse and unique, but never before has a site been launched with such a specialized goal in mind. Lovers of the odd, purveyors of the eccentric, and partakers of the different. The Hogs Head, much like its Wizarding world counterpart, will serve like minded people. We will discuss, dissect, and podcast on all things non-Canon, and occasionally canon fics. We will cover the spectrum of ships. Nothing is too far gone, nothing is too unlikely to happen, we will visit all worlds. Please come join us, and enjoy the journey.
