iPods and Harry Potter

I've just discovered Podcasts. For those of you with long commutes, have iPods and love Harry Potter, you're in for a particularly nerdy treat. Available on iTunes and on, these are a series of discussions about all things HP ranging from conspiracy theories to the movies to speculations to what they loved/hated about prior books to fan questions to multiculturalism to prose, etc. You get the gist. I would post particulars, but I don't want accidentally to give away spoilers. Caution: yes, some Podcasts (called episodes) feature spoilers, but they tell you ahead of time so that you can remain spoiler free if you choose.

Being a great lover of nerds (nothing warms the cockles of my heart more than a great guffaw over an academic joke), I found these Podcasts to be endearing. They reminded me of a bunch of friends sitting around talking about something they felt passionately about. Sometimes they even resemble literary discussions found in the classroom.

Check it out! They're free, too!

Does this mean I have to go buy an IPod now? I hope Apple's paying you a commission. Dangit.
