It’s Harry Potter & the Manifold Mysteries! This week we have a special guest! Theo Pratt ‘12 is a fellow KWCW DJ who co-hosts a show called the Freestyle Mystery Tour. The first hour of the show features freestyle raps by two of his mates, and the second, a discussion of murder mysteries and the techniques that authors employ to write good mysteries. He joined us for a really fun discussion of some of JKR’s best mysteries.
Our conversation ranges from Mad-Eye Moody to Moaning Myrtle to the Elder Wand. If you’re doing a re-read, catch this episode first—it will give you lots to think about!
