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.
UGH. It’s time to go back to Privet Drive and suffer through Harry’s worst summer yet. WHY IS LIFE SO UNFAIR? Hosts Michael, Rosie, Kat, and Editor Patrick keep Harry’s temper in check as they revisit chapter 1 of Order of the Phoenix, “Dudley Demented.”
For once, Harry has a good birthday when three owls arrive with his first birthday cards and gifts in a short chapter packed with foreshadowing. Join hosts Alison, Rosie, and Michael along with special guest Micah Tannenbaum as they receive some special “Owl Post” in chapter 1 of Prisoner of Azkaban.
Harry’s second year is not off to a good start. He hasn’t received any letters from his friends. The Dursleys are managing to treat him as both a threat and a non-entity at the same time, and Harry has to spend his birthday doing chores and pretending he doesn’t exist. Join hosts Alison, Beth, and Katy, along with special guest Eric Scull, as they continue our seven-part anniversary discussion with Chapter 1 of Chamber of Secrets, “The Worst Birthday.”
