It’s the English class you didn't know you missed and the meaningful conversations you didn't know you craved.

Join Vanessa Zoltan and Casper ter Kuile as they bring thought, reflection and laughter to Harry Potter; not just as novels, but as instructive and inspirational texts that will teach us about our own lives. Relive the magic chapter by chapter as they explore themes such as commitment, revenge and forgiveness.

This podcast creates time in your week to think about life’s big questions. Because reading fiction doesn’t just help us escape the world, it helps us live in it.

Quality podcast!

Been listening to this pod for a couple years now and it is definitely in my top five. Like so many others I have grown up with Harry Potter and turn to the series whenever times are tough. It’s so nice to be able to take a deeper look at something I hold very close to my heart. Thank you for having important and open minded discussions. As an atheist, I don’t always feel welcome in religious spaces, but that is definitely not the case here! This pod has challenged me in many ways and has encouraged me to be more generous in my readings of those around me. Thank you for all that you do and bonus points for the excellent production quality! This podcast is top notch!

Something Special

I save new episodes for a time in my day when I could use a pick me up, or when I have the mental space to reflect and improve my mood. Vanessa and Casper are making something really special, even for an agnostic like me. Thanks y’all.
