The Sorting Chat — A Harry Potter Podcast

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

Episode 21 — Travis

December 6th, 2018
00:0000:00

Hello, and welcome to the very late 21st episode of this supposedly Harry Potter podcast! Forces of nature have kept one of us down — but not out — and our dear Dayle returns to us after the destruction wrought by Hurricane Michael in October. Now that she is safe and sound, we return to our regularly scheduled pattern of talking like no one is listening. Which is to say: come with us as we discuss the recently released “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and get lost deep in the weeds trying to reconstruct when and who and where and why everything ever was in the Harry Potter universe. Also, Cherie thinks one of the characters’ names is Travis, and we riff on that for way too long. Reunited, and it feels so good!

Episode 20 — I Care For People

October 4th, 2018
00:0000:00

Hello, and welcome to the "best" Harry Potter podcast with the worst audio! We've got a little bit of everything for you in this one — except for Dayle, who was out sick. (#wandsoutfordayle) It's just Cherie and Lauren this time, talking about The Hogwarts Express and general boarding school transportation, lamenting "The Cursed Child" (again) and eventually devolving into punch-crunk conversation about Season 3 of "The Surreal Life" and our love for Brigitte Nielsen. It's what all the hep cats are talkin' about in 2018!

New episode next week!

September 28th, 2018

Hello, friends, lovers and everybody else who's just like, "What is this page?" We'll have our next episode up next week, Oct. 4, so we can get back on schedule with posting on the first Thursday of each month. This has been a weird summer, what with strange work hours, medical issues and international travel, but we're hoping to be back on track starting next month. Thanks so much for your patience, and please don't forget to PM us all your sexiest fan fiction. We love you all!

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!

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!
