Vanessa and Casper explore the theme of sacrifice in chapter fifteen of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. This week Casper and Vanessa discuss Snape’s love of Draco, Luna’s calming presence, and Hermione’s date with McLaggen. Throughout the episode we consider the question: can someone force you to sacrifice? Or does it have to be a choice?
Thanks to Niya Kelly for this week's voicemail! Next week we’re reading chapter sixteen, A Very Frosty Christmas, through the theme of Erosion, with very special guest Terry Tempest Williams.
Please consider supporting our Don’t Be A Dursley campaign. We’re trying to raise $25K by Christmas for RAICES - an organization that helps immigrants and refugees struggling for rights in our country.
