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 Matt Potts 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.

Wrap-Up: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone


Vanessa and Matt wrap up their first season together with a look back on all of Book 1! They discuss Harry's arc, Neville's role as a perpetual outsider, and the way that fantasy as a genre works with

the progressively more vivid violence in the books.


We're taking a quick break, but will be back in two weeks to discuss Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets!
