Question of the Week

Podcast Question of the Week – Episode 84

We learned all about the spycraft in the Harry Potter series this week, and our Question of the Week builds off of one posed in the new book Harry Potter and the Art of Spying by our guests Lynn M. Boughey and Peter Earnest. 

Between Snape, Lupin, Pettigrew, Kingsley and many more characters, we see a great deal of double agents and moles throughout the series. In this chapter, Kingsley is working as a mole in the ministry for the Order of the Phoenix, providing misinformation about the whereabouts of Sirius Black to the ministry for the case he is leading. Is Kingsley a traitor to his employer? Or does his belief that the ministry is doing the morally wrong thing negate him as a “traitor”? What about the other moles in the series, such as the most-complicated double agent of them all: Snape? 

Leave us your response below & we just might read them on the next episode of Alohomora!
