Ep-64 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (1997 novel)

Head over to Platform 9 ¾ and board the Hogwarts express and join the guys as they take their first trip into the Potterverse with J. K. Rowling’s initial novel in her bestselling series. They begin by touching on the author’s personal history leading up to writing the novel as well as its storied publication. Take a moment to revisit a warm and inviting series that has touched millions around the globe.

Topics include: the hosts’ personal experience with the material, JK Rowling’s activism, the hero’s journey story type, is Harry Potter a Mary Sue, the guys share their own House allegiances, the pedagogy of Hogwarts, and the anti-climactic ending.

Join them next week for the film starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Alan Rickman, and more! Just in time for Fantastic Beasts the Crimes of Grindlewald.
