Manage episode 301160987 series 1506806
Well, we’re back on the Hogwarts Express! This time, Helene and Adri talk about the many ways that they see the politics of nepotism and privilege interact in this chapter, as well as in the rest of the book. We talk about Slughorn’s favoritism of those associated with prestige and power, Draco’s lack of growth as a boy who insists you remember who his father is, Ginny’s absolute power, Harry’s growth as a character, and the blink and you miss it reference to a serial killer in the wizarding world (who is not Voldemort or Grindelwald, mind you).
Patrons get a bonus segment for this episode! This week, we’re talking about what it would look like if Slughorn made his entire brand into a coaching business just like Tony Robbins. Would we have seen him in Oprah? Want access to bonus content and more? Become a Patron for as little as $2/month by heading over to www.patreon.com/acciopolitics.
