When there's something strange in the neighborhood, Will and Marc (let's be real - it'll be Will) will probably develop a barely relevant hashtag to go along with it!

Welcome back! This week we're talking about THE BIG SICK, so we welcome nurse Moira Redmond to talk about the movie's representation of life in a hospital.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Accio Podcast! That pseudo-Latin jibber-jabber must mean we're talking about Harry Potter - specifically, the abundance of hormonal nonsense that is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince!

But we do have opinions on this romance! Don't forget to rate, review, and subscribe to Heart of Podness on your favorite podcasting app!
