The Beetle Has Landed (GOF Chapter 18, The Weighing of the Wands)

MuggleCast: the Harry Potter podcast - Un pódcast de Harry Potter


It's a tough week being The Chosen One! Join the hosts as they avoid insults from Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff, stumble through Hogwarts classes, and hunker down in the nearest broom cupboard for an uncomfortable interview with Rita Skeeter! Welcome back, Pam! She co-hosts #Millennial Podcast with Andrew and Laura every Tuesday. Check it out on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts! Chapter-by-Chapter continues with Goblet of Fire, Chapter 18: The Weighing of the Wands 7-Word Summary: Rita hijacks Harry’s innocence by broom closet Main Discussion #1: POTTERSTINKS Why is nothing being done about the mass-scale bullying towards Harry? We get the hate from Hufflepuff and Slytherin, but what's up with Ravenclaw? Why does Harry fail to recognize the effect his fame has on his friends? Would Harry actually have been able to cast the Cruciatus Curse on Snape? Main Discussion #2: The Beetle Has Landed How does the Quick Quotes Quill Work? Rita corners Harry in a closet! Where are the adults? What does Rita's character say about the media in general? How did Dumbledore know where to find Harry in the broom closet? Welcome back, Ollivander! Get ready for some wandmaker shade! Do we think Dumbledore gave Ollivander instructions not to mention Harry’s wand history? Odds & Ends cover Fleur & Cedric, Gregorovitch and Harry's toast!
