Harry Potter and the Poisoner of Azkaban

We are headed back to Hogwarts to talk about Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban with Hippogriffs and werewolves-and also totally nerd out about Flobberworms for most of the episode.

As we discussed in our previous Harry Potter episodes, if you are uncomfortable with discussing Harry Potter right now please feel free to skip this episode and come back in two weeks with a much less controversial episode. You can see the notes or listen to our Chamber of Secrets episode for more of a discussion on our feelings and why we continue to discuss this series.
