​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.

The Magicians collage

The Vassals discuss Lev Grossman’s Magicians series of portal fantasy novels. Topics include millennial ennui; impotent gods; the plight of being a fantasy fan; and how the rules of magical top-trumps aren’t entirely clear.  This episode spoils the Magicians series (including the short story in Dangerous Women) and also discusses Narnia, Harry Potter, Brideshead Revisited and Tolkien.  (Aftershow begins at 1h 20m).

Podcast hosts:  Bina007, Katie (Lady Griffin), Brett (WhiteRaven), Michael (Mordion) and Greg (Claudius The Fool).

Edited by Bina007 using Geoffrey Burgon’s marvellous score to ITV miniseries of Brideshead Revisited and Queen’s It’s A Kind of Magic.
