In this week's episode Casper and Vanessa talk about the dark side of Hope. Is hope used as a tool of oppression? When is it appropriate to be used and when is it a crutch? When do we a little bit hope for something bad to happen? When is hope brave and rigorous?
Casper and Vanessa discuss the complications of the hope in institutions like the lottery, and hope's tie to desperation. We also talk about how friends can give one another hope, like Harry gives to Neville.
We have a special blessing from the great feminist podcast, Witch, Please and Casper offers a blessing for the Flamels, who have been married for hundreds of years and Vanessa offers one for Hermione and her great reading habits.
