Likability: Quidditch (Book 1, Chapter 11)

Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of likability in chapter eleven of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. This week we discuss how easy it would be to hate Harry at Hogwarts, how we feel about Hermione looking over the boy's homework, and Oliver Wood's pre-game pep talk. Throughout the episode we consider the question: How do we mitigate our initial attraction to (and repulsion from) other people?

Thanks to Lauren for this week’s voicemail! Next week we’re reading Chapter 12, The Mirror of Erised, through the theme of Wisdom.
