2.6 Gilderoy Lockhart

We’re coming at you a few hours later than usual with a new episode of Podtrificus Totalus, a Harry Potter podcast done chapter by chapter, book by book.

In chapter six of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Ron gets a Howler from Mrs. Weasley and must deal with his broken wand, Harry unwillingly gets a few lessons in fame from Gilderoy Lockhart, and Hermione cleans up the mess of their incompetent Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher.

We make a number of references to outside sources, which are listed below:

Our Spell of the Week is the Freezing Charm, which Hermione uses to stop the pixies that Lockhart releases in class.
