The holidays get an extra magical boost as Harry spends his first Christmas at Hogwarts. Between hand knitted jumpers, food, and mysteriously delivered invisibility cloaks comes one of the most touching chapters as Harry sees his family for the first time. Join hosts Alison, Kat, and Michael with guest Monet as they revisit Chapter 12 of Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone, “The Mirror of Erised.”
Snape’s vindictiveness reaches an all-time high as he tries to convince the Minister for Magic that Sirius Black is, indeed, a murderer. But Harry and Hermione know the truth, and so does Dumbledore. Three turns does it to send them back in time to make right what could have gone horribly wrong. Join hosts Beth, Eric, Katy and guest host Josh, as they try to understand the mechanics of “Hermione’s Secret,” chapter 21 of Prisoner of Azkaban.
The time has come for Harry to die but his last moments are not wasted. From passing the torch, to reflecting over his years at Hogwarts, to being surrounded by the fallen he loves most, he does not face his final foe alone. Join hosts Beth, Katy, Michael and guest host Sherry, as they shed some tears over “The Forest Again,” chapter 34 of Deathly Hallows.
It’s the day of the Quidditch tryouts, but despite all of the excitement in the air, even breakfast isn’t fun anymore as Voldemort quietly returns to power. Don’t worry, though! Hermione’s got everything covered. Join hosts Alison, Beth, Michael and guest host Rita, as they get some much needed assistance from “Hermione’s Helping Hand,” chapter 11 of Half-Blood Prince.
