Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

It’s finally happening… we’re talking about Harry Potter on the podcast! More specifically, Episode 60 of SSR is all about the book that started it all: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. In this episode, we talk about why the books have been challenged by conservative communities, obsess over the amazing world of Hogwarts and beyond, and chat about what we would have liked to see more of from Rowling’s female characters. Alli also reveals her true feelings about the movie adaptations and takes a guess at which House she would be sorted into. And that’s just the start… there’s so much to talk about when it comes to Harry!
