And at long last, we reach the actual end of the Harry Poddercast Extravaganza with part 2 of our roundtable discussion. In this episode we discuss the portrayal of women, bullying, continuity, and the movie adaptations. We also cover Game of Thrones (again), Star Wars, and the Lensman series, possibly as a sign of Harry Potter fatigue. We also talk about revising the Hogwarts curriculum, twin stuff, sex questions that could only apply in the HP universe, and the face punch test for determining which house you should be sorted into. It’s been a lot of fun doing this, even if it has been fairly exhausting getting three and a half hours of raw audio edited in one day. We hope to see you again next week when we talk about… something other than Harry Potter.
The music bump is “Too Much Time On My Hands” by Styx, because that is surely what you think about my situation by now.
Cast a memory charm on yourself and read/listen to the whole series again!
