We’re doing our best to have a good time at this dance, but the drama at Hogwarts may just turn this evening on its head. You’ve got a date with Alison, Katy, Michael and guest host, Howl, for a night full of magic and intrigue at “The Yule Ball,” chapter 23 of Goblet of Fire.
Broken broomsticks, Maps, parchment, secret passages, and secrets abound as Harry leaves the safety of Hogwarts Castle behind for an afternoon in Hogsmeade. Join hosts Kat, Kristen, and Alison, with MuggleNet staffer Katy as they “solemnly swear” they they are up to no good and descend down the one-eyed witch’s hump in chapter 10 of Prisoner of Azkaban, “The Marauder’s Map.”
This place sure is dusty. And who’s doing all of that yelling? Join Kat, Katy, Michael and guest host Alex (listener Feminist_Cat) as they pull out their Extendable Ears on the Order of the Phoenix’s secret meeting at “Number Twelve, Grimmauld Place,” Chapter 4 of Order of the Phoenix.
There are more secrets beneath the school than giant killer snakes and hat tricks. Anyone know Parseltongue? It might help Alison, Lauri, Michael and guest host Olivia (long-time listener, SpinnersEnd) with navigating one of the strangest encounters of the series, “The Heir of Slytherin,” Chapter 17 of Chamber of Secrets.
