Embarrassment: The Four Champions (Book 4, Chapter 17)

Book 4 Chapter 17 HPST Series 2

This week, Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Embarrassment in Chapter Seventeen of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! They discuss the growing teen angst in these chapters, Karkarov and Maxime's reaction to unexpected tournament changes, and Ron's intertwining feelings of anger and embarrassment. Throughout the episode we consider the question: what does our embarrassment indicate about our values?  Next week we're reading Chapter Eighteen, The Weighing of the Wands, through the theme of reluctance.
