Anxiety: The Whomping Willow (Book 2, Chapter 5)

Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Anxiety in Chapter Five of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. This week they discuss the enchanted Ford Anglia, McGonagall's lax punishment, and our introduction to the Whomping Willow. Throughout the episode we consider the question: how is anxiety relational?

Thank you to Emily for this week’s voicemail! Next week we’re reading Chapter 6, Gilderoy Lockhart, through the theme of Narcissism.
