Intimacy: The Woes of Mrs. Weasley (Book 5, Chapter 9)

This week, Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Intimacy in Chapter Nine of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! They discuss meal sharing as a catalyst for closeness, Harry's unwanted intimacy with Lucius Malfoy, and the entitlement of close friends! Throughout the episode we consider the question: what are the tradeoffs, strengths, and limitations of intimate relationships?

Thank you to Russell for this week’s voicemail! Next week we're reading Chapter 10, Luna Lovegood, through the theme of Beauty with special guest Jolie Doggett!
