BBC Scotland: Harry Potter’s Edinburgh

The link to the BBC Scotland radio broadcast is here. You can listen anytime for three weeks before the BBC link dies. And it is a lot of fun.

The show is about how Edinburgh as the home of J. K. Rowling has become a pilgrimage point of sorts for Harry Potter true believers. I thought it was very well done — and I hope I’m not saying that because they interviewed me for the show as well as friend-of-this-blog, Oxford’s Beatrice Groves. She happens to be an authority on literary pilgrimages and the real thing, so her portion of the discussion makes the whole thing more than worth the time. (At the link, ‘Harry Potter’s Edinburgh’ begins just after 3:00 of news programming.) Enjoy!

And Happy New Year!
