Ep 72: Who Teaches Ethics at Hogwarts?

Hogwarts CrestJacob and Matthew put on their house robes, pick up their quills and talk Potter! We’re talking Wizard-Muggle relations, the house system and whether Slytherins are all evil, and if Hermonie’s quest to save the House Elves is noble, colonialist, or a mix of both!

To make this episode accessible to Potter fans of all ages, we made a point to keep our language PG this time.
