Inspiration: The Patronus (Book 3, Chapter 12)

Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Inspiration in Chapter Twelve of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban! This week they discuss the trio's ongoing friendship troubles, the proper inspiration behind a successful patronus, and the healing properties of Lupin's steady supply of chocolate. Throughout the episode we consider the question: what is inspiration and how can we persevere through the ebbs and flows of its presence?

Thank you to Youval for this week’s voicemail! Next week we're reading Chapter 13, Gryffindor Versus Ravenclaw, through the theme of Independence.
