Introducing our very own TTP crest of glory

TTP crest

Our friend Patrick Dixon from has honored us by designing a GORGEOUS crest for our podcast. We love it more than Harry loves treacle tart, more than Neville loves herbology, more than Dobby loves socks, dare we say even more than Hermione loves the library!?


Happy Friday/Question of the Day

In honor of Friday: what does Snape do on the weekend to unwind? Does he make up new spells? Fly around as a bat? Hang out in his pensieve memories? It’s a mystery! We’re recording Episode 6 today, so give us your best guesses here or on Twitter or Instagram and we’ll read ’em on air. Happy Friday!!

Comments? Be honest like the Sorting Hat.

We would love to hear your thoughts on Episode 2! How did we do?

Cover Art


Here’s the cover art for our podcast. Keep your eyes peeled when you search for it on iTunes, just like crummy old Filch scouring the Hogwarts halls.


What did you think about Tickle the Pear’s pilot episode? Were we too giggly, too silent? Too loud, too soft? Too analytical, not analytical enough?

Or did our podcast make you feel like you’d drunk a vial of Felix Felicis and all had become right with the world? 😉

Let us know in the comments below, and we’ll doff our wizarding hats to you during Episode 5!

Who made that?

Tickle the Pear


The artist behind our fabulous podcast art is…

Amanda Grazini!

Amanda is a fantastic artist and illustrator living in Brazil. Mega-generous and mega-kind, Amanda has given us permission to use her illustration of Harry, Hermoine and Ron tickling the painting of the giant pear that led to the Hogwarts kitchen.
