The Sorting Chat — A Harry Potter Podcast

Three adult women talk once a month about “Harry Potter” and laugh at each other.

Episode 19 — Wackadoodle

August 23rd, 2018
00:0000:00

Hello, friends and lovers! Welcome to this very, very late episode. Join us as we try to answer listener questions, and get sidetracked by snakes and soccer! Also, Lauren's daughter Lucy interrupts several times until we decide to invite her to talk to us, at which point she clams up faster than that frog from the Bugs Bunny cartoons. Kids! They love to troll! Thanks to listener Katie for bearing with us and for being kind about our ignorant assumptions about the British. It's the American Way!

[CW: Heavy discussion of mental illness]

Episode 18 — People Hanging Out With Ghosts

July 5th, 2018
00:0000:00

Hey everybody, it's us! We're back, and ready to talk about Harry Potter! In between talking about makeup and lovingly criticizing our friends and family for their shortcomings! Listen as we discuss the dynamics of couples with both magical and non-magical partners, ghosts and wizard sex! Listen also as we are plagued by technical difficulties, turning this episode into a narrative disaster! It's our very own Cursed Episode! If you listen to it, you'll be dead in 7 days! It's good fun!

[CW: murder, mental illness, sex]

Episode 17 — Diggle Diggle Diggly Dig Diggly Diggly

June 7th, 2018
00:0000:00

Hello, and welcome back to the OTP — the One True Podcast about Harry Potter! Or so we have said. This time, we were missing our dear Dayle, but stepping into her shoes is the indomitable Dr. Saulter, who is both a mental health professional and a mother of Cherie! We spend a while talking about the Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery game, before moving onto using Dr. Saulter's expertise to try and diagnose the mental health of all our favorite characters. Meanwhile, Lauren and Cherie both remember that a mom is present and neither one of us do a cuss. It sure is a hoot! Come on and give it a listen.

Episode 16 — Potions Anonymous

May 3rd, 2018
00:0000:00

Welcome back to this Harry Potter podcast that has no regard for structure or even really being entertaining! On this month's episode, we chat with guest John — and his alter-ego Charlaine — ostensibly about wizard drugs, but eventually leading to Lauren just reading the titles of Chuck Tingle novels aloud and saying sex stuff. It's great material, everybody, you should really get in on this.

[CW: Discussion of substance abuse, sex work, erotica, mention of nonconsent]

Episode 15 — #Not All Gryffindors

April 5th, 2018
00:0000:00

Hello and welcome again to this podcast, where we do Harry Potter stuff most of the time. Join us as we welcome our first repeat guest, our best friend for as long as we feel like it, Leah! We asked her, a confirmed Hufflepuff, to join the rest of us three — each a Gryffindor, Ravenclaw and Slytherin — in talking about our respective houses and their characteristics. We start off with a little talk about some recent Twitter drama concerning the March for Our Lives, continue on with the house convo and eventually end up just talking about ourselves and how much we like each other. It's really riveting internet stuff! Get out of our dreams, listeners, and get into our podcast. Get in the backseat, babies!
