Hello! (Yeah!) And welcome to Binge Mode! Mallory Rubin and Jason Concepcion continue their exploration of the Harry Potter universe by diving deep into the Wizarding World theme park. To help guide you on that journey, here is a map of this special episode of Binge Mode: Harry Potter. It’s not quite as detailed as the Marauder’s Map, but don’t fear: The podcast is just as magical.
- Mallory and Jason start their journey by detailing their seven favorite parts of the park, from Gringotts to the plethora of butterbeer products and more.
- Then they chat with Eric Hunt, the senior director of creative design at Universal, about the park’s creation and building a real-world project out of on-page descriptions.
- And finally, they sit down with Michael Aiello, the senior director of Universal’s entertainment creative development, about the process of making the park’s shows, songs, and other creative attractions.
Next Monday, they return with another episode of Binge Mode: Harry Potter, in which they will analyze the first five chapters of Prisoner of Azkaban.
