Wrap-Up: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

In the final episode of season three, Vanessa and Casper pull out a few key insights from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. They take some time to talk about Harry Potter himself, reflect on Voldemort's absence, and compare Draco to a young white supremacist. Throughout the episode they come back to ideas about purity, justice, and identity formation. 

This episode is sponsored by Audible. Audible has the best audiobook performances, the largest library and the most exclusive content. We recommend you go listen to Harry Potter! We are also sponsored this week by BarkBox, which was very appreciated by Vanessa's dog, Rory. 

Next week, we're rounding out the season with a final Owl Post and a conversation about justice with lawyer Sejal Patel.
