    Take Five, Take 4.13: Goblet of Fire, 60:01-65:00
    Two full minutes of a joyride / dragon chase around the Hogwarts grounds, how thrilling! Harry nearly DIES, but luckily lives to revel in the glory of amping up the Gryffindor Common Room crowd. Meanwhile, Alice, Martha, and special guest Shut Up Tim compete to see who can tell the most compelling Microwave Minute story.

    Horace Slughorn: Character Study, Part 1
    Alice and Martha discuss everyone's favorite Slytherin, Professor Slughorn! This giant slug loves collecting creature comforts, knows how to amp up the drama for Potions class, and doesn't mess around with Death Eaters or the likes of Abraxas Malfoy.

    Into the Pensieve: The Mouse and the Motorcycle
    It's another mouse book this week! Alice and Martha discuss The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary. Ralph might not be quite as sweet as Remy, but he's miles ahead of Stuart... and remember, mice grow up much faster than human boys! #boymouse

    In this series, Alice and Martha reminisce on shared memories, inside jokes, and experiences reading both classic and lesser-known children's books, including favorite segments such as Quora Question of the Week, and Sorting Hat! Take Fives and character studies will continue, with this new episode format being added to the rotation with the other two formats.

    Seamus Finnigan: Character Study, Part 3
    Yes, it really has taken three character studies to analyze Seamus's complex arc! In this episode, Seamus "apologizes" to Harry for the error of his ways, leaving Harry free to angle for his approval once again.

    Seamus Finnigan: Character Study, Part 2
    Alice and Martha discuss Seamus in the fourth and fifth books. His storyline picks up speed as we meet his mom (or possibly a paid Craigslist actor??), see his passion for Irish Quidditch, and watch as he falls victim to the Daily Prophet propaganda.

    Seamus Finnigan: Character Study, Part 1
    Kaboom! It's time to blow some things up! Alice and Martha deviate from the official Real Weirdos list to cover Me Cousin Fergus's cousin, Seamus Finnigan (not Finnegan) in the first three books. His "arc" may leave something to be desired, but Harry's still all about those Seamus winks!

    Into the Pensieve: Curious George
    Alice and Martha discuss Curious George, the Man in the Yellow Hat, and H.A. and Margret Rey. Though he may not have a tail, Curious George proves to be a much more endearing main character than Stuart Little, and thankfully, he would almost certainly beat Stuart in a fight!

    The Muggle Prime Minister: Character Study
    Alice and Martha discuss the first unnamed character to win the Real Weirdo, Canonical John Major! This isn't a Fudge character study, and this isn't a Scrimgeour character study, and it isn't about the froglike man in the painting, either, although Mary GrandPre might lead us to believe otherwise.

    Take Five, Take 4.12: Goblet of Fire, 55:01-60:00
    Well done, Dragon! Alice, Martha, and special guest Shut Up Tim have made it through the first hour of Goblet of Fire... oooOOOhhhh! Harry fights the Horntail (what's that, boy??), Krum fights Rita, and Alice fights to understand perspective and time jumps!

    Into the Pensieve: Stuart Little
    Alice and Martha enter a world which is entirely E.B. White's own, which may or may not be a good thing. Is Stuart a mouse or not? What ever happened to Margolo? And what exactly were the publishers thinking? Stuart Little is quite the canoe ride and is nothing like the sisters remembered. 

    In this series, Alice and Martha reminisce on shared memories, inside jokes, and experiences reading both classic and lesser-known children's books, including favorite segments such as Quora Question of the Week, and Sorting Hat!

    Neville Longbottom: Character Study, Part 7
    Alice, Martha, and Jim Dale are back to finish discussing Neville. In the seventh book, Neville becomes--there's no other word for it--cool. As usual, this is obvious to readers through his long hair, his casual demeanor, and his habit of calling people by the first syllable of their name. Neville's arc is one of the best of the series, and Alice and Martha do take a break from mocking him to praise his final moments.
