Movie Mini 7—Creature Feature Creep
1 hr 19 min
We very irrationally still call these "minis," but at any rate, let's ease back into the Potterverse by discussing the surprisingly fun—considering all the death, despair, camping, etc.—first installment of the Deathly Hallows films! This week, the Grangers are definitely about a month from being charged with murdering their daughter; two Death Eaters go deep undercover in coveralls; Ron has bad-news snowblindness; Lucius loses his very cool and manly wand-holder thingie; and Dobby Voice ruins Dobby. Plus: A really ill-advised wedding!

This week: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1

Next week: Shell Cottage

#492: The Defining Chapters of the Big Seven Harry Potter Characters
Thanks to all who came out to Quizzitch Live: Weasley Thanksgiving edition! If you missed it, watch it now (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SHi8Lavy_w) ! Main Discussion: What chapters from the Harry Potter books best define the "Big Seven" characters? Is Harry's heroism better represented anywhere than in "The Forest Again"? Does Draco's inaction speak as much to his character as his inaction? Can a character's defining chapter be the chapter in which they are introduced? The hosts propose runner-up chapters that show different sides of a character Ginny and Neville both assert themselves in the chapters we chose. Is Luna Lovegood's defining chapter one in which she does not physically appear?! Listeners weigh in with defining chapters for additional characters! Quizzitch: Who did Snape tell off for using the word “Mudblood,” during the Prince's Tale? And who was it said about?

Book 2, Ep.1 | Feminist Theory
Greetings Witches! We're so excited to be moving on to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets with you! Break out your feminist reading glasses, because we're approaching this text with the tried and true (but also ever evolving) principles of feminist theory. We're returning to the origins of Witch Please and pulling from feminism's foundational texts to guide us through this second Harry Potter installment (which, by the way, contains several issues—including: parental neglect and abuse, starvation, gendered violence, violence against animals, violation of bodily autonomy, and death—so please take care of yourselves). Also, a note about feminism, women, and girls: In this episode, we'll be talking about the experiences of characters this text presents as women and girls. But when we talk about women and girls we want to make very clear that we at Witch Please have an expansive definition of what that means and are working, in our own vocabulary to find ways of talking about feminist issues without automatically centering cis women. Trans women are women. People of marginalized genders across a variety of experiences may resonate with characters presented in this text as women and girls, and we support those readings. We've received some very generous feedback from listeners as to how we can use more inclusive and affirming language around gender, and we always welcome these critiques!   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
