We’re going way back to the beginning and settling in to life at Hogwarts as Harry and the first year Gryffindors have their first flying lesson with the Slytherins and somehow find themselves in a forbidden corridor past midnight.
In one of the many chapters that make up the climax of the third installment of Harry’s story, we get a lot of backstory that raises a lot of questions. Join hosts Michael, Irvin, and Alison with guest host Genevieve of the Alohomora! social media team as they dive into the complicated components of magic and secrets that formed the Marauders.
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.”
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.”
