Harry Potter and the Sacred Text

It’s the English class you didn’t know you missed and the meaningful conversations you didn’t know you craved. Join Vanessa Zoltan and Casper ter Kuile as they bring thought, reflection and laughter to Harry Potter; not just as novels, but as instructive and inspirational texts that will teach us about our own lives. Relive the magic chapter by chapter as they explore themes such as commitment, revenge and forgiveness. This podcast creates time in your week to think about life’s big questions. Because reading fiction doesn’t just help us escape the world, it helps us live in it.
Casper and Vanessa explore the theme of Reality in chapter twenty of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This week we discuss a lot of things about Ron! We discuss Ron’s separation from the trio, the reasons he didn’t go back to the Burrow, and his attempts to get Hermione back. Throughout the episode we consider the question: how do we make room for subjectivity without degrading the importance of facts?
Thanks to Angela for this week’s voicemail! Next week we’re be reading Chapter 21, The Tale of the Three Brothers, through the theme of Dreams.
It’s two sickles to join S.P.E.W., and only two dollarsto join our Patreon for extra bloopers every week! Please consider helping us fill our Gringotts vault so we can continue to make this show.
