In our first episode since Deathly Hallows, please be
forewarned that there will be spoilers -- so if you haven't read the book, consider yourself warned.  Phaballa joins us with a discussion of the Presidential Forum on LGBT issues.

In the meta chat we've decided to postpone the DH discussion and instead focus on the current Livejournal mess.  Then Jedi Rita says her piece on life after Deathly Hallows.
