Pigfarts, Pigfarts, here we come! Sarah, KC, and Sue got together to talk about the YouTube sensation "A Very Potter Musical." The plot is basically a parody mash-up of Harry Potter books 4-7, but that's not what's important. We talk about our favorite characters, songs, one-liners, and running gags. And somehow take a brief detour to the much more serious topic of digital distribution of media (including theater, television, and music).

*Please note: This episode carried an "explicit" tag due to a few instance of mild to moderate profanity in some of the quotes and/or clips from the production.
