Time to get sorted!! As we all know, as soon as first-year Hogwarts students arrive, they must sit before the entire school in the Great Hall and be sorted by the Sorting Hat. Once owned by Godric Gryffindor himself, the hat uses Legilimency to look into kids’ thoughts and place them into one of the four: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin. What house do you belong in?

For this first episode, we’ve decided to take it allllllll the way back to the true origin point of the Harry Potter series: Trelawney’s prediction to Dumbledore about You-Know-Who and the wizard that would challenge him. 

As we all know, that wizard could have been two boys: Harry Potter, or Neville Longbottom. This week we talk about the prophecy, how it might have turned out, how it did, and also pay tribute to both Harry and Neville with some wrockin’ tunes.

Wow—a lot of characters in HP die. This week on TWH, we discuss the important role that death plays in the Potterverse. For a while we discuss this article about who “deserved” to die and who didn’t, we tangent about LOTR and Twilight, and—shockingly!—we acknowledge one passing that we’ve been denying for years.

In retrospect, we should have talked about thestrals. The concept of “seeing death” is fascinating. Ah well, there’s always next time!
