Transmissions From Atlantis – Episode 7: Ascendio 2012

It’s a very special TFA Episode this week as we focus on the Harry Potter convention Ascendio 2012. We’ll take you deep inside the con with discussions on Muggle Quidditch, Chris Rankin’s (Percy Weasely) Q&A, the Quill Track and JC’s Wardrobe malfunction. We’ll also interview facebook cosplay legends Perseus and Draco LePage, hosts of Ascendio 2012’s Fashion ball.

We’ll also talk a little Artemis Fowl in Rita’s Reading Review and we’ll give you the scoopage on Doctor Who at San Diego ComiCon.

We’ll wrap it up with our review of True Blood episode 6 – Hopeless.

It’s a big episode but we bring you the very essence of one of the best Harry Potter cons we’ve attended.
