The Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality audiobook/podcast exceeded nine thousand total downloads last night! Over 800 per episode on average. In celebration I put together another trailer. :) This one is taken from Chapter 7, the most popular chapter so far. I like to think it's because it has the speech about the Line of Francis Bacon and the Blood of the Enlightenment (which I personally loved), but maybe it's just because it's the only episode with an Explicit tag and that draws curiosity? Either way, it's the first chapter I truly fell in love with, and I'm glad I'm not the only one.

I have emailed myself a link to watch that trailer when I get home, and I wanted to take a moment and let you know the audio format really does bring the story to a new audience. My wife was interested in the story when I talked about it, but didn't seem inclined to read it herself. However, she has been animatedly listening to the podcasts with me when they become available.

Please keep up the great work!
