On tap this week is ancient magic, that is, magic of a most powerful sort! We discuss (and ultimately, ask a lot of unanswerable questions about) the kinds of magic that are either extremely old, extremely powerful, performed without wands or all of the above. We touch on ancient beasts like dragons and basilisks, as well as enchantments such as blood sacrifice, life debts, Dumbledore’s protections over Harry while he lives at the Dursley’s and more! It’s a really diverse bunch of music, so enjoy. Unfortunately we ran out of time at the end and couldn’t fully discuss Unbreakable Vows, Hallows or Horcruxes, so maybe we’ll have to save those for another time.
