We’re celebrating the 24th anniversary of Harry’s daring encounter with the Hungarian Horntail. Join hosts Michael and Rosie, along with guest host Aaron, as they revisit the thrills of “The First Task,” Chapter 20 of Goblet of Fire.
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.”
Think the intro chapters to the early books are boring and worthy of being skipped? Let us prove you wrong! Beth, Katy, Rosie and guest host Ryan explore Chapter 4 of Chamber of Secrets, “At Flourish and Blotts,” and show just how rich the text is.
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.
