The Sorting Chat — A Harry Potter Podcast

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

Episode 17 — Diggle Diggle Diggly Dig Diggly Diggly

June 7th, 2018

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

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.

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!

Episode 14 — I Bless the Floos Down In Africa

March 1st, 2018
00:0000:00

Hey cool dudes, and welcome to the One Harry Potter Podcast that can't decide if it wants to be funny or contemplative — and ends up being neither! Come with us as we intend to talk about HP, immediately veer into talking about cute animals we saw online, try to rein it back in and end up reading the Harry Potter Wikia to you. Then, we go light on laughs — and long on ... lambasting? — as we discuss a couple of times Our Lady of Fantasy Fiction, JK Rowling, got herself into hot water, and how she responded to it. Sound like your cup of tea? Then click that li'l play button and get you some.

Episode 13 — Roughin’ It

February 1st, 2018
00:0000:00

Hello again, and welcome to another episode of the Harry Potter show that just won't quit — except when it does, eventually. In this episode, Dayle was out sick (#rememberDayle #RIPDayle) but will return resplendent for our next foray. In her place is The Sorting Chat superfan, Lauren's brother-in-law Ian! And also Lauren's sister Hayley, who tolerates us all. We're discussing The Sorting at Hogwarts, The Houses, and The Lighting of Juvenile Fires In Yards. This episode also includes the finest fan fiction work our Cherie has ever produced; she is truly the brightest fan fiction composer of her age. Come on in and do the dang thing with us.
