Vanessa and Casper explore the theme of hospitality in chapter four of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. They consider the ways in which Hermione is diplomatic, fight about ice cream, and grudgingly admit that maybe Percy has the right idea for once.
Throughout the episode, Casper tells tall tales from helping run a Bed and Breakfast with his family while growing up. Meanwhile, Vanessa gives ten points to Gryffindor for how generous Hermione is towards Crookshanks.
A quick correction! Vanessa quotes her favorite book, Jane Eyre, when talking about why Hermione is so admirable. At least she's tries to. The sentiment was pretty much the same, anyway. Here's the correct quote:
This episode, we engage in a new spiritual practice, PaRDeS, which was introduced to us at the end of Season Two by Rabbi Scott Perlo. We dug up this quick cheat sheet for those who want to try PaRDeS at home.
Next week we're reading chapter five, The Dementor, through the theme of foresight. This week's voicemail is thanks to Abigail Smith. Don't forget to vote in the 30 second recap!
