Bravery: The Worst Birthday (Book 2, Chapter 1)

Welcome back! In our first episode of Season 2, Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Bravery in Chapter One of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. This week we discuss the difference between bravery and bravado, Vernon's drill salesmanship, and Harry's faith in his friendships. Throughout the episode we consider the question: does bravery require confidence, or is it even braver to act when you are unsure?

Thank you to Hanna for this week’s voicemail. Next week we’ll be joined by special guest John Green, as we read Chapter 2, Dobby's Warning, through the theme of Health.
