Reluctance: The Weighing of the Wands (Book 4, Chapter 18)

This week, Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Reluctance in Chapter Eighteen of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! They discuss the "Potter Stinks!" badges, Rita Skeeter's journalistic practices, and the home court advantage of Mr. Ollivander examining the wands. Throughout the episode we consider the question: what can we learn from paying attention to moments where we feel reluctance? 

Thank you to Lynn for their voicemail! Next week we're reading Chapter Nineteen, The Hungarian Horntail through the theme of annoyance.
