Faith: The House-Elf Liberation Front (Book 4, Chapter 21)

Vanessa and Casper explore the theme of "faith" in chapter twenty-one of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." This week we discuss Vanessa's first celebrity crush, the separation of church and state in the US, and the internalized oppression of house-elves. Our question this week is: What does faith look like when it's not religious?

Next week we're reading chapter twenty-two, The Unexpected Task, through the theme of Happiness. Thanks this week to Austin Bucholtz for our voicemail.

We have officially launched our fundraiser. If you can, please support us so we can read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!
