It’s Back to Hogwarts Day 2022!
Hey everyone. Today we are celebrating a very special day for Harry Potter fans around the world. It’s back to Hogwarts Day! An emotional day for many of us, in this episode, our newly knighted Co-Host of Keeping Up with Joe, Michaela Loomis and I chat about some of our biggest feelings looking back at an impactful story and what it was like to live through the Harry Potter craze that still carries on through today. We get into: What does Back to Hogwarts Day mean for us. How is reading Harry Potter as an adult different than when we were kids. What are our takeaways from the first three books. Is James Potter a good guy or a bad guy? Does Snape suck or is he misunderstood? We get into all of this and more as we head back to Hogwarts in episode 36 of Keeping Up with Joe.

The Witcher: Yennefer’s Character Growth in Season Two
In this episode, we talk about writing, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Witcher Season 2 and Yennefer’s character growth. We also discuss some of the differences between season one and season two, like Triss Merrigold’s red hair, Ciri’s dark eyebrows, and Geralt’s sudden loquaciousness. *Mega Spoilers Ahead Who is Yennefer? Yennefer is a powerful mage in The Witcher – one of the most powerful characters of all. But she’s got a soft spot – she wants a child of her own. In season two of The Witcher, she is given the chance to develop in a way that is different from the books. She loses her powers, and even attempts to betray Ciri in order to get them back. Does this make sense for her character? Do they show the bond between Yennefer and Ciri well enough in the show? We answer this and more in the episode. Who is Ciri? Ciri is the Child of Elder blood, and the most powerful character in the Witcher. How Old is Ciri in the Show? She’s supposed to be around 16, which is half way between her age in the books and the show. What Are Jaskier’s Best Songs? Was Toss a Coin To Your Witcher his greatest hit? Or does Burn Butcher Burn come close? Should Eskell Have Died? Eskell died in the book – did it make sense that Geralt was so willing to kill him and not kill Ciri? Listen to the episode to find out more!

Transitions in Your Twenties
If you’re a young adult, you should be used to transitions by now. Transitions are a huge part of your late teens and early twenties. You basically go from being a kid living with your parents to becoming a (somewhat) functioning adult in the span of a few years. Blink and before you know it you are twenty-seven and people are expecting you to actually know what you want to do with your life. Loomis and I talk about transitions in this episode including: Moving out for the first time. Coping with transitions through literature and media. And a bunch of other stuff.
