Brenna and guest star Hannah McGregor arrive at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but Joe is nowhere to be found! The result is more drama than a Gryffindor v Slytherin Quidditch match as Brenna has to duck out early, meaning Hannah is less guest, and more like the glue holding this episode together.

When Joe finally joins (presumably after his Remembrall turned red), the trio discuss the reasons why Harry Potter has become such a phenomenon, why the series has lent itself to so much fan fiction and the troubling class and race issues that Rowling historically reproduces. Plus: Brenna admits a startling preference for an unusual character, Joe reveals a feud with his husband with regard to House sorting and Hannah explains the rules for real life Quidditch (despite claiming to hate the sport!).

If you want to find out which House you would be sorted into, complete the quiz Hannah mentions via Tumblr Sorting Hat Chats.

In Homework: Joe is absent and Brenna is exhausted, so Hannah explains the queer attraction to Stardew Valley.
