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 became 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.
Travel with us around the globe as we examine how different languages translated the words but maintained the magic of J. K. Rowling’s Wizarding World. Michael, along with SpeakBeasty host Aurelia and three very special guests, Camille, Marjolaine and Simé, are your guides as we examine the Languages and Translations of Harry Potter.
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.
