Dumbledore doesn't know Draco was standing there waiting for them at that very moment Rosie nor did he know that was the actual moment he was going to die when he was FLYING TO HOGWARTS WITH HARRY. That's a bad take Rosie.

I know it's been 5 years since this episode dropped, but Eric, you're a moron.

this show has such good discussion sometimes, but it is weighed down so ridiculously by the Snape and Dumbledore hate. Such juvenile reading of the two best characters in the series. I have been listening to some of the older episodes and I just skip the episode now if Rosie with her "issues with Dumbledore" -- which she has to repeat every two minutes -- is on. the Lupin love is really nice, but what a shame otherwise.

Oh no! What happened to the earlier episodes? Shows from the Sorcerers Stone don't appear.
