What is black, white, and read all over? Does anyone really know? Thankfully, riddles such as that one are the focus of this week’s episode as hosts Kat, Alison, and Michael, along with guests Emily and Faith delve deep into Chapter 16 of Philosopher’s / Sorcerer’s Stone, “Through the Trapdoor”.
Travel with us to Ancient Greece as we unpack ancient philosophies that may have inspired the personalities of the four Hogwarts founders.
