• Summary

  • Welcome to the Glittering Bell Jar, a Harry Potter Podcast, where we explore the Harry Potter series by reading it backwards. As you might recall, Harry and his friends discover the power of the glittering bell jar in the Department of Mysteries as it causes objects to move backward and forwards through time. We’re Brie & Valerie, two writers and Harry Potter fans who want to take you through the Harry Potter series in a way in which no one has done. Come along with us as we dissect each character and try to understand all the magic and common threads we may have missed!

    Here we are at last... It's the grand finale of our first season of The Glittering Bell Jar: A Harry Potter Podcast.

    In this episode, we're joined by listener – and uber Harry Potter nerd (aka our favorite kind of people) – Samantha. We discuss the two Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows films as a way of wrapping up our backward reading of the book.

    Join us for a fun conversation with new insights into both the Harry Potter films and Harry Potter book series, as well as some mic-drop moments as we connect the dots in the amazing universe of the Wizarding world.

    Here we are, at the beginning of the end – or is it the end of the beginning for our little Harry Potter podcast? 

    In this week's episode of The Glittering Bell Jar, we discuss the first four chapters of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: The Seven Potters (ch. 4), The Dursleys Departing (ch. 3), In Memorium (ch. 2), and The Dark Lord Ascending (ch. 1). There's a lot to unpack, from the cultishness of Death Eaters to Dudley's unique way of showing his cousinly love for Harry. 

    We also chat about important Deep Magic (to borrow a phrase from CS Lewis, which we think JK Rowling would approve of) like the charm that protects Harry at Privet Drive and the opposing magics of Occlumency and Legilimency. 

    This episode wraps up our backward reading of Deathly Hallows, and we'll be back next week with a special guest and discussion of the two Deathly Hallows films.

    Sure it's a 700-page book, but how about we cover 100+ pages of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in this week's episode of the Glittering Bell Jar!

    To be fair, all four of the chapters covered in this week's episode – The Wedding (ch. 8), The Will of Albus Dumbledore (ch. 7), The Ghoul in Pyjamas (ch. 6), and Fallen Warrior (ch. 5) – take place at Ron's childhood home, the Burrow, in the last moments of peace, normalcy, and joy before the dark events to come. Join us as we go through each of these chapters, examining each character, tracking different threads of the book and the entire Harry Potter series, and making our way to the final episode of this backward reading of Deathly Hallows – aka the beginning of the book.
