April 18th is Alohomora’s 7th anniversary – our most magical anniversary yet! So this episode will start off our seven-part series celebrating the staying power of Harry Potter, this podcast, and our listeners! The next seven episodes will be revisiting the first chapter of each of the seven novels along with some special guests. But to kick things off, we’re starting with a host-only show. Join Beth, Kat, Katy, and Michael as they discuss the chapter where it all began, “The Boy Who Lived,” chapter 1 of Philosopher’s / Sorcerer’s Stone.
This chapter is a bummer. Not only is Harry’s wand shattered, so is his confidence, his opinion of Dumbledore, and his heart. Join hosts Beth, Katy, and Michael, along with guest host Parker Peevyhouse, as they explore Harry’s pain and Dumbledore’s past in Chapter 18 of Deathly Hallows, “The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore.”
It’s Harry’s birthday, and there are some surprises in store! Join hosts Beth and Alison with Aurelia from SpeakBeasty and guest host Irvin (hpboy13) as they discuss chapter 7 of Deathly Hallows, “The Will of Albus Dumbledore.”
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.
