A Plethora of British Quandaries with UK Correspondent Dottie James
From time to time in episodes of Potterless, Mike Schubert comes across a British word or phrase with which his silly American brain is unfamiliar. Time and time again, he turns to his UK Correspondent, Dottie James, to shine an English light on the situation and catch him up to speed. Mike recently discovered a website that tracks every change and translation made from the UK editions of the Harry Potter books to the US editions. For 30 minutes, Schubes will ask Dottie what the heck these words and phrases mean and if Brits still use them regularly today.

MISSION TO ZYXX is an improvised science fiction podcast following a team of emissaries as they attempt to establish diplomatic relations with planets in the remote and chaotic ZYXX QUADRANT of the TREMILLION SECTOR. PLECK DECKSETTER, a naive, gung-ho farm boy and his crew—know-it-all droid C-53, hulking, omnisexual security officer DAR, and defected clone trooper AJ—travel aboard the outdated, sentient starship THE BARGAREAN JADE, who has as many ex-husbands as stories about her glory days. Their mission is nominally overseen by JUNIOR MISSIONS OPERATIONS MANAGER NERMUT BUNDALOY, a striving, entry-level bureaucrat yearning for respect.
Join them as they put on a fully improvised live show with special guest MATT YOUNG of Hello From the Magic Tavern!
