Normalcy: The Bribe

Book 7 Chapter 11 HPST Series 1

Vanessa and Casper explore the theme of Normalcy in chapter eleven of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This week we discuss the role of pain in Harry’s life, the changes being made at the Ministry, and why Lupin can’t come hunt horcruxes. Throughout the episode we consider the question: how do we notice what’s become normal, but needs to be changed?

Thanks to Ava for this week's voicemail! Next week we’ll be doing an Owl Post episode with special guest Jackson Bird on the topic of J.K. Rowling’s recent transphobia.
