The Sorting Chat — A Harry Potter Podcast

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

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.

Episode 12 — My Patronus Is a Turkey Leg

January 11th, 2018
00:0000:00

Bonjour dudes, and welcome back to this podcast where adults talk about Harry Potter and other things with a startling lack of clarity! We are back from our holiday hiatus, and — look, we've done our best here. We took suggestions from a few listeners and from our own brains for discussion topics, threw them into a hat and pulled some out at random. What follows is just shy of 45 minutes of listing things and trying to sing in sync over webchat. Two thirds of us were under the weather and the other one had just gotten off an airplane, so it's just as good as you might expect in those circumstances. So have a listen, and let us Slytherin (ugh) to your ears and your hearts.

The Third Floor Corridor — Trout Sniffer

December 21st, 2017
00:0000:00

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.

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.
