Anger: Nicolas Flamel (Book 1, Chapter 13)

Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Anger in Chapter Thirteen of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. This week we discuss Ron's fight with Crabbe and Goyle, Neville's justified rage, and Snape's unconventional refereeing tactics. Throughout the episode we consider the question: is anger the affective space between hurt and an outward act, and if so, how do we harness it most effectively?

Thanks to Aidan for this week’s voicemail! Next week we’re reading Chapter 14, Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback, through the theme of Obligation.
