Vulnerability: Christmas on the Closed Ward (Book 5, Chapter 23)

This week, Vanessa and Matt explore the theme of Vulnerability in Chapter 23 of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! They discuss our reintroduction to Gilderoy Lockhart, Neville’s parents, and Mr. Weasley’s experiments in muggle medicine. Throughout the episode we consider the question: how does vulnerability affect our decision-making capabilities?

Thank you to Jamie for this week’s voicemail! Next week we're reading Chapter 24, Occlumency, through the theme of Release with Casper.
