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.

Vanessa and Casper explore the theme of Ownership in chapter fifteen of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This week we discuss Muggle/Goblin relations, the Sword of Gryffindor, and of course, the big fight between Harry and Ron. Throughout the episode we consider the question: What are things we can never own? Thanks to Cindy for this week's voicemail! Next week we’re reading Chapter 16, Godric’s Hollow, through the theme of Peace. --It’s two sickles to join S.P.E.W., and only two dollars to join our Patreon for extra bloopers every week!
