Refuge: Educational Decree Number Twenty-Four (Book 5, Chapter 17)

This week, Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Refuge in Chapter Seventeen of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! They discuss the clubs at Hogwarts, Umbridge's emerging strategies, and Harry's relationship with Hedwig. Throughout the episode we consider the question: how do different places take on or lose their status as a refuge?

Thank you to Audrey for this week’s voicemail! Next week we're reading Chapter 18, Dumbledore’s Army, through the theme of possibility with Jackson Bird.
