Description

It’s time to begin Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets this week on Podtrificus Totalus, a Harry Potter podcast done chapter by chapter, book by book.





On this episode, we cover the rather sparse first chapter of the second book in the series, in which Harry spends his birthday scrubbing floors and tending to gardens in preparation for the Dursley’s dinner party.





We make a number of references to outside sources and popular culture, which are listed below:









Our Spell of the Week for this episode is Lacarnum Inflamari, which Harry might have used to set a bush on fire in the Dursley’s garden. We also answer an email from Becca on Quidditch classism, an email from Joseluis on money in the UK and the Hero’s Journey, and an email from Robin on Madam Pince.





We encourage our listeners to send emails to owlpost@podtrificustotalus.com correcting us, expanding on something we mentioned, asking questions, and sharing their experiences with the Harry Potter series. You can also interact with us through @podtrificus on Twitter, our Facebook page, or by leaving a comment below.





We are also available on podcast services. You can subscribe to us via Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Pocket Casts, Spotify, and more — just search us on your favorite podcast app or use the direct link to our feed. Hit the subscribe buttons on our website to make sure you don’t miss out on new episodes of Podtrificus Totalus.





Thanks for listening and we’ll see you again for 2.2, “Dobby’s Warning!” Have a magical day!
