Rehabilitation: Grim Defeat (Book 3, Chapter 9)

Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Rehabilitation in Chapter Nine of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban! This week they discuss Harry's fall from his broomstick, the rehabilitation of Snape's image, and Cedric Diggory's good sportsmanship. Throughout the episode we consider the question: how can rehabilitation help us move forward, when we are not able to return to the way things were?

Thank you to Isabelle for this week’s voicemail! Next week we're reading Chapter 10, The Marauder’s Map, through the theme of Confusion.
