Compassion: The Heir of Slytherin (Book 2, Chapter 17)

Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Compassion in Chapter Seventeen of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! This week they discuss Harry’s introduction to the real Tom Riddle, Fawkes’s heroic entry, and the perils of journaling. Throughout the episode we consider the question: how does understanding the root of our compassion lead us to act in more kind and loving ways towards others?

Thank you to Laura for this week’s voicemail! Next week we're reading Chapter 18, Dobby’s Reward, through the theme of Love.
