Episode 17: Trademarks, Contracts, and Butterbeer

Steve and Nick talk about live data on the new lexicon, which spawns a debate about wizarding currency.  Just how much is a Galleon “really” worth anyway?  We also try to make sense of the concept of Magical Contracts, and Nick recounts a tale of his recent visit to the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood1And comparing with the Hogsmeade portion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure in Hollywood.

We have something extra special planned for Episode 18 and we need your help!  We are going to do Episode 18 live as a Hangouts on Air this Thursday at 9:30 pm Eastern Time, 1:30 am GMT.  Don’t worry if you can’t make it, we will still upload the episode here for everyone who can’t make it (or just wants to listen later), but if you can make it, we have a special announcement to make about the New Lexicon, and you can interact with us live.  Ask us your most challenging Canon Mysteries and we’ll try to puzzle them out.  Ask us about the new Lexicon and we’ll answer what we can.  The next episode is about you, so be sure to tune in.
