Description

It’s Monday! There’s a new episode of Podtrificus Totalus! We are a Harry Potter podcast that reads the books chapter by chapter!





This chapter sees Hermione finally finish brewing the Polyjuice Potion, with relatively positive results. Harry and Ron, disguised as Goyle and Crabbe, infiltrate the Slytherin Common Room, but Malfoy denies any involvement in the attacks, leaving them back at square one of unraveling the mystery of the Chamber of Secrets.





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





  • The Chronicles of Narnia book series by C.S. Lewis
  • The Wildwood Chronicles by Colin Meloy
  • The Neapolitan Novels by Elena Ferrante
