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.
Hermione is the belle of the ball, but even on this special evening, the magic of the night is fleeting.
When J. K. Rowling “outed” Dumbledore, it sent shock waves around the world. Now, ten years since that revelation, we explore how far the Harry Potter series has come, and how far it still has to go. Join Beth, Elayna and Michael, along with guest Shanna, as they open the closet (under the stairs) for an examination of LGBTQIA+ in Potter.
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.”
