3.6 Talons and Tea Leaves

It’s Monday, and we’re coming at you with a brand new episode of Podtrificus Totalus! In this week’s episode, we cover chapter six of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, “Talons and Tea Leaves,” in which Harry, Ron, and Hermione start their third year at Hogwarts. They begin new courses (some more than others), and Hermione must decide where she draws the line between magic and card tricks.

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

Our Spell of the Week for this episode is Divination, which is the new course the trio begins together this year, taught by Professor Trelawney.

We also answer emails from two of our regular listeners (and emailers), Jose and Viv, on horsebuses and magical schools outside of Hogwarts.

We encourage our listeners to send emails to [email protected] correcting us, expanding on something we mentioned, asking questions, and sharing their experiences with the Harry Potter series. You can also interact with us through @podtrificus on Twitterour Facebook page, or by leaving a comment below.
