Intelligence: The First Task (Book 4, Chapter 20)

This week, Matt and special guest Margaret H. Willison (!!) explore the theme of Intelligence in Chapter Twenty of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! They discuss Hermione's approach to studying, Harry's natural ability on the broom, and Ron's apology, or lack thereof. Throughout the episode we consider the question: what distinguishes intelligence from other forms of talent? 

Thank you to Rebecca for their voicemail! Next week we're reading Chapter Twenty-one, The House-elf Liberation, through the theme of Vulnerability with special guest Jackson Bird.
