Frustration: The Deathday Party (Book 2, Chapter 8)

Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Frustration in Chapter Eight of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. This week they discuss the difference in how Nearly Headless Nick and Argus Filch handle their respective frustrations, the Headless Hunt's rules and regulations, and Moaning Myrtle's exile. Throughout the episode we consider the question: is frustration the inability to close the gap between what you believe you should be able to do, and what you are actually able to do?

Thank you to Emma for this week’s voicemail! Next week we’re reading Chapter 9, The Writing On The Wall, through the theme of Hate.
