Amazing

Academia, feminism, and Harry Potter. There is nothing more I could ever ask for 😭

Color blind Feminist

I wanted to like this so bad. We get the view of the white privileged feminist who calls out patriarchy but fails to see how that benefits the white females of the world. At the very least, they can have more guest of color (more females) to discussed patriarchy from a female person of color's perspective. Do not get me started on the appropriation of Black culture with just the name of the podcast alone. Also, they are not NEARLY well versed enough to have a HP focused podcast.

Great on Feminism, Bad on Race

I wish there was more outrage about the lack of people of color, and I don’t think the hosts were particularly attuned to that topic. Just a couple examples: (1) the hosts made no mention of the fact that PoA was the first movie to include diverse extras/hogwarts students. That fact was super noticeable for PoC because CC movies were very white. (2) Host couldn’t tell the difference between Cauron and Del Toro...not a good look.

And I agree with many other listeners that the podcast would be a lot more informative and powerful if the hosts were close readers.

Other than that, I really enjoy this podcast for the feminist lens. Questioning Harry’s narrative is wonderful and Stranger Granger is fantastic.
