The Sorting Chat — A Harry Potter Podcast

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

The Third Floor Corridor — Trout Sniffer

December 21st, 2017

Happy Holiday times and welcome to another episode of our occasional sub-podcast, The Third Floor Corridor, where we veer wildly off course to talk about something that is not Harry Potter. In this very merry 'sode, we talk about everybody's favorite film franchise about an aspiring young sociopath, "Home Alone." We will cover some of the bases, leave others entirely unexplored and maybe even slip in a little Potter talk with us. Merry Christmas, you filthy animals!

Visit us at www.thesortingchat.com and send us all your steamiest Kevin/Malfoy fanfic at thesortingchat@gmail.com or facebook.com/thesortingchat.

Thanks as always to Zach Stidham, who composed this holiday rendition of "The Sorting Chat Theme." Find him at zachstidham.bandcamp.com or on Instagram @zach.stidham.music.

Episode 11 — The Biggerstaff-Wood Connection

December 7th, 2017
00:0000:00

Hello everyone, and welcome back to the only Harry Potter Podcast produced by people who would definitely get on your nerves in a bar. This week — despite the misleading title — we'll be talking about everybody's (least?) favorite bad boy, Draco Carl Malfoy. And, of course, we'll also spend a prodigious amount of time talking about other things: horse girls, Amy Grant, HP/OW fan fiction. And So. Much. LESS. So strap in and do the dang thing with us!

Visit us at www.thesortingchat.com and send us all your favorite fan art of shirtless Slytherins at thesortingchat@gmail.com or facebook.com/thesortingchat.

Episode 10 — Walkin’ Into Spiderwebs

November 9th, 2017
00:0000:00

Hey guys! A brand new episode has come down the pike for you — and what a doozy. This time, we spend a while trying to talk about privilege in the Wizarding World and Hogwarts pedagogy, before eventually spending the rest of our time making up Harry Potter fan fiction based on pop songs. It's a pre-Thanksgiving miracle!

Visit us at www.thesortingchat.com and send us all your favorite Evanescence lyrics at thesortingchat@gmail.com or facebook.com/thesortingchat.

The Third Floor Corridor — Curiosity Door

November 8th, 2017
00:0000:00

Hello, and welcome to the inaugural episode of The Sorting Chat's sub-podcast, The Third Floor Corridor, where we very occasionally will veer dangerously off-track and talk about things that are not Harry Potter. In this episode, we're talking about Stranger Things, mainly season 2, in the way that only we can: in long strings of uninterrupted stream-of-consciousness. Listen as we spend at least 20 minutes gushing and complaining, and then spend basically the rest of our time playing a protracted game of "Who'd You Rather?" (Spoiler alert: we're randy for just about everybody on this show.) So grab your Eggos and have a li'l listen. 

Let us know if you liked this off-topic adventure, and let us know what other things you might like to hear about in the future at thesortingchat@gmail.com or www.facebook.com/thesortingchat. If you didn't like it, keep it to yourself, we don't need that drama.

Thanks as always to Zach Stidham, who did a heck of a job translating our regular theme into something spookier and, dare we say it, stranger? He's at zachstidham.bandcamp.com or on Instagram @zach.stidham.music

Minisode 6 — Harry Potter and a Lady of a Chance

October 26th, 2017
00:0000:00

Happy Harry-ween, everyfolk! Here's our sixth mini-sode, wherein we talk about wizard fine dining, wizard Halloween costumes and that age-old question: is Harry Potter a subject of The Queen? Inquiring minds want to know! And we give them very, very unsatisfactory answers. That's just what we're into here at The Sorting Chat!

This episode's title came from listener Stephanie, who had the most votes in our "generate a HP title with your dang auto-fill" contest.
