    Episode #379: Baby Micah

    * … Did that work? Is he listening to this episode? * With Micah gone this week, we're joined by two of our listeners, Alex and Stefanie, who do their best impressions of the NY News Anchor. * Patrons in the U.S. have received their mugs, but we need to know if they arrived okay! And if yours arrived broken (rare but possible), let us know. * This week's episode is [sponsored by Puffs the Play](http://puffstheplay.com/mugglecast)! Receive a special discount on tickets to see Puffs at New York City's New World Stages. * Chapter by Chapter continues with Chapter 2 of Half-Blood Prince: Spinner's End. * The brilliance of this chapter is how Snape is playing Bellatrix and Naricissa simultaneously but in different ways. * How much does Voldemort know about Dumbledore's injury? He can't know about the Horcrux… right? * Does one line from Bellatrix help make Delphi's existence canon? * Why would Bellatrix have such a hard time trusting Snape's word when Voldemort is content with his reasoning? And what should she do if she had ever learned the truth? * Who is the MVP of the chapter? Those poor elves… * We rename the chapter to reflect what really happens. * Crackpot Theory: Has Bellatrix made an unbreakable vow before? * Have questions or comments about HBP Chapter 3?
