Charm: Aragog (Book 2, Chapter 15)

Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Charm in Chapter Fifteen of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! This week they discuss Matt's charming children, Ernie Macmillan's earnest apology, and the children's total inability to charm Aragog. Throughout the episode we consider the question: how is charm like a spell, and what conditions allow that spell to be successful?

Thank you to BA for this week’s voicemail! Next week we're reading Chapter 16, The Chamber of Secrets, through the theme of Yearning.
