Shame: The Dueling Club (Book 2, Chapter 11)

Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Shame in Chapter Eleven of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, with special guest Casper ter Kuile! This week they discuss the highs and lows of sleep-away camp, Crabbe's potion-making skills, and Harry's newly discovered fluency in Parseltongue. Throughout the episode we consider the question: what lies on the other side of shame?

Thank you to Prabhanjan for this week’s voicemail! Next week we’re reading Chapter 12, The Polyjuice Potion, through the theme of Guilt.
