Vanessa and Casper and special guest, Mike Schubert from the Potterless Podcast, explore the theme of superstition in chapter thirteen (spooky!) of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. They discuss Tom Riddle’s need for control, Dumbledore’s self-awareness, and the power of hindsight. Throughout the episode they consider the question: how do we acknowledge our own lack of control in a healthy way?

Next week we're reading chapter fourteen, Felix Felicis, through the theme of resistance. Our voicemail this week is thanks to Kimberley Moran.

Please consider supporting our Don’t Be A Dursley campaign. We’re trying to raise $25K by Christmas for RAICES - an organization that helps immigrants and refugees struggling for rights in our country.
