Hallows or Horcruxes? Draco or Slughorn? Harry has to make a choice. Thanks to a brilliant idea from Ron, he makes the right one and, with a little luck, is able to acquire the memory that is so pivotal to his quest to defeat Voldemort. Join hosts Katy and Rosie, along with guest host Claudia to find out just how lucky he gets, as they discuss Chapter 22 of Half-Blood Prince, “After the Burial.”
Dumbledore should be revealing all…but he’s not, so we’ll dig out the things he doesn’t say. It’s a favorite chapter all around for hosts Kat, Beth, and Alison, with guest David as they discuss “The Lost Prophecy,” Chapter 37 of Order of the Phoenix.
Harry’s becoming curious about the Half-Blood Prince’s identity (more so than we are), but it’s time for his first lesson with Dumbledore. The topic? How Tom Riddle’s past would become Voldemort’s future. To find the answer, follow Eric, Katy, Michael and returning guest host, Alex, into the Pensieve and through the door of “The House of Gaunt,” Chapter 10 of Half-Blood Prince.
It may be in between tasks, but that doesn’t mean Harry is about to get some down time. From an uncomfortable house elf encounter in the kitchens to unfortunate hate mail (and sworn vengeance on Rita Skeeter), it seems like Harry will never get a break. A disturbing encounter with Mr. Crouch signals the beginning of the end – something nefarious is about to unfold, and it could mean the end of Harry. Join hosts, Alison, Beth, Katy and guest host Ann, as they unravel chapter 28 of Goblet of Fire, “The Madness of Mr. Crouch.”
