Intellectually Engaging

As an adult fan of the HP books I am delighted to experience academic dialogue of my favorite series. I found this Podcast intellectually engaging and stimulating. I strongly recommend this podcast for anyone who wants to go on a journey to a deeper level with HP series.

Good Show

BUT the "hogwarts professor" talks waaaay too much. He needs to let other people voice their opinions without interrupting them!!!

Good but needs more cultural balance

I like the concept of this podcast and decided to comment after giving it two good listens. Firstly I think it's just too American, the hosts and guests have so far all been from the US and there is no balance for the heavy cultural baggage that John Granger in particular unloads onto J.K. Rowling's very British work. Though the Harry Potter books have great universal appeal, they are as English as their author and often require a patient British fan's guidance in understanding the many phrasings and cultural nuances. I am American, I have never lived in England but have loved British books and television since childhood. I have always whenever possible asked my British friends to help me understand the nuances and implications of any number of words and phrases in English works as well as in English systems such as the National Health and the Council. Living here in Japan as long as I have has made me realize just how blind an American perspective can be, and learning to balance my experiences with those of others in Europe, East Asia and the rest of the world has been unnerving but exhilarating. I also think Mr Granger needs to realize there is a certain amount of Christian imagery in all Western works, it's part of the heritage and need not be focused on in such detail. An articulate British fan or two can definitely help in this regard. Finally, you're going to need balance for the house elf discussions; I'd like to help with that.
