​VoK 384: Harry Potter Re-Read IV: How Do Mandrakes Fuck?




The Vassals of Kingsgrave return to Hogwarts school to take a non-existent exam on the last nine chapters of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! This episode’s class is led by Michal (inkasrain), with a student body of Adam (drownedsnow), Nadia, Marie (Nymeria), Bing (shoeshiner), Kevin (Gaiden), Sarah (Lady Weaver), Zach (Alias), Casey (blue-eyed-queen), Greg (claudiusthefool), and also, Paul (SerDinnerRoll).

Join the crew as they study bad accents, debate the merits of that asshole Gilderoy Lockheart, pen pointless haikus, take a seminar on body-shaming, and brew some really good shit in the bathroom.

And of course, when in doubt, they go to the library…. or their local independent bookstore.

This podcast contains spoilers for the entire Harry Potter series, ish.
