– We know from the films that at least Snape has an oft campus residence. Trewalney seems to never leave. It seems that at least during the school year, all the teachers live at school.

– One thing that really is starting to annoy me is the complete lack of knowledge of anything Muggle related by some magical folks. I relate this to our real world equivalents of Amish. They choose to isolate themselves and shun being part of the modern world, but they are not ignorant of it.

– I do love how Hermione goes from annoying outsider to part of our trio. I agree that it was more from the fact that she covered Harry and Ron by lying. You rightly surmised that Harry has a “I have to save them/fix the problem” attitude that Voldemort is able to exploit later.


Good points, Dave!! You’re right about Snape, I completely forgot about Spinner’s End in our conversation! I’ll make sure to bring up your points on the next episode.

As always, thanks for listening!! 🙂

Spinner’s End, such an odd name for a residence.

Must be a British thing, none of my homes ever had names. But then again, my homes were only 10-25 years old.


I’m surprised that it took as long as it did for Hermione to join the trio. But it does make things even more meaningful.

McGonagal should have totally given the broom in private! The shape is kind of obvious… I’m sure that the teachers stayed in living quarters on site.

Girls, I am on the exact same Oliver Wood train as you! And I thought it was unlikely that Oliver didn’t know what basketball is too.

I love the listening to the goodies found in the illustrated version!
