    The Chamber of Secrets

    The Chamber of Secrets

    It’s Monday and the universe’s favorite chapter by chapter Harry Potter podcast, Podtrificus Totalus, is talking giant snakes!







    In this week’s chapter, things get bad at Hogwarts. Harry and Ron can’t find an opportunity to sneak into Moaning Myrtle’s bathroom and uncover the Chamber of Secrets. They discover that the monster that has been petrifying their classmates is a basilisk and that Ginny, Ron’s younger sister, has been taken to the Chamber. With the threat of Hogwarts closing for good and a reluctant Lockhart dragged along with them, they take the plunge into the Chamber, hoping they can rescue Ginny before it’s too late.







    We make a number of references to outside sources and popular culture, which are listed below:







    * The Basilisk on the Harry Potter Lexicon* Basilisk on Wikipedia* Several wizard rock songs, including “And Then I Died” by The Moaning Myrtles, “Never Going to the Bathroom Again” by Harry and the Potters, and “Save Ginny Weasley” by Harry and the Potters* Gilderoy Lockhart on the Harry Potter Wiki* The Memory Charm on the Harry Potter Wiki







    Our Spell of the Week for this episode is Obliviate, which Lockhart attempts to use on Harry and Ron after he tells them his secret… using Ron’s broken wand.







    We also answer an email from friend of the show Joseluis, who wrote in with some of his thoughts on how well the movies managed to adapt the Harry Potter books, especially compared to other book to movie adaptations. We encourage our listeners to send emails to owlpost@podtrificustotalus.com correcting us, expanding on something we mentioned, asking questions, and sharing their experiences with the Harry Potter series.

    Aragog

    Aragog

    It’s Monday and Podtrificus Totalus, a Harry Potter podcast done chapter by chapter, is back to talk about some current events and some giant spiders.







    In this week’s chapter, Harry and Ron follow Hagrid’s advice to follow the spiders. This brings them into the Forbidden Forest, where they encounter an old friend and a new threat, uncovering some information about when the Chamber was opened last.







    We make a number of references to outside sources and popular culture, which are listed below:







    * Max & Ruby, a children’s book and television series* Aragog on the Harry Potter Lexicon* Gog and Magog on Wikipedia* Gog and Magog on the Encyclopedia Britannica* Gogmagog on Wikipedia* The Wand-Lighting Charm on the Harry Potter Wiki







    Our Spell of the Week is Lumos, the Wand-Lighting Charm, which Harry uses to help them see in the dark forest.







    We encourage our listeners to send emails to owlpost@podtrificustotalus.com correcting us, expanding on something we mentioned, asking questions, and sharing their experiences with the Harry Potter series.







    In lieu of our usual links to our social media accounts and places where we subscribe, we would like our listeners to seek out Black and queer creators and voices instead. Some excellent people that we enjoy and would like to promote include Black Girls Create, House of Black Podcast, Kimya Dawson, The Gayly Prophet Podcast, Austin Walker and the Friends at the Table podcast, Ludo Bagman and the Trash, Wizards in Space, and the Wrock Snob among many, many others. We also encourage our listeners who have the financial means to spare even a few dollars to donate to Black Lives Matter and other, related funds. Act Blue has set up a page where you can spread your donation out among (at the time of writing) over 70 bail funds, mutual aid funds, and activist organizations.

    Cornelius Fudge

    Cornelius Fudge

    It’s Monday and Podtrificus Totalus, a Harry Potter podcast done chapter by chapter, is remaining true to their word to release episodes regularly! What a dream! What a treat for you!







    This week’s chapter sees the trio falling complacent, reluctant to ask Hagrid any questions about his expulsion. But when Harry’s room is ransacked, Tom Riddle’s diary stolen, and Hermione is petrified, Harry and Ron set out to find answers but are interrupted by the appearance of Cornelius Fudge and Lucius Malfoy.







    We make a number of references to outside sources and popular culture, which are listed below:

Astre Mithrandir; Published by Wizarding World Press in 2003)* The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser* Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup* Fudge is based off of Neville Chamberlain according to an interview with J.K. Rowling in XLSemanal, a Spanish magazine* Cornelius Fudge on the Harry Potter Lexicon* Fudge in the Oxford English Dictinary* Dumbledore used homenum revelio when at Hagrid’s hut according to Rowling (Live chat with Bloomsbury; 30 July 2007)* The Severing Charm on the Harry Potter Wiki







    Our Spell of the Week is Diffindo, the Severing Charm, which may have been used to rip apart Harry’s cloak and bedclothes when his dormitory was ransacked.

    The Very Secret Diary

    The Very Secret Diary

    It’s Monday and that means a new episode of Podtrificus Totalus, the universe’s favorite Harry Potter podcast!







    In this week’s chapter, Harry finds a mystery diary that belonged to a T.M. Riddle fifty years ago — the same amount of time that has passed since the Chamber of Secrets was last opened. A Valentine’s Day disaster ends up revealing the diary’s secrets, and Harry learns who opened the Chamber last time.







    We make a number of references to outside sources and popular culture, which are listed below:







    * Buster’s Breathless, an episode of Arthur* Philoctetes, a character in Disney’s Hercules (1997)* Gimli, a character in The Lord of the Rings* Armando Dippet on the Harry Potter Lexicon* Thomas (name) on Wikipedia* Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare* The Revealing Charm on the Harry Potter Wiki







    Our Spell of the Week is Aparecium, which Hermione uses on the diary in attempt to reveal its secrets.
