‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,’ Ch. 6-10

Mallory Rubin and Jason Concepcion continue their journey through the Potterverse by examining the theme of humiliation

Hello! (Yeah!) And welcome to Binge Mode! Mallory Rubin and Jason Concepcion continue their exploration of the Harry Potter universe by diving deep into Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, chapters 6-10. To help guide you on that journey, here is a map of the 12th episode of Binge Mode: Harry Potter. It’s not quite as detailed as the Marauder’s Map, but don’t fear: The podcast is just as magical.

  1. Mallory and Jason start their journey, of course, on the Hogwarts Express, providing a brief refresher on what actually happened in these five chapters. Harry attends a host of new classes, suffers his first Quidditch loss, and sneaks into Hogsmeade with the help of a new magical tool.
  2. They continue by diving into the Pensieve, where they analyze the central theme of this section of the book: humiliation.
  3. Next, they sneak into the Restricted Section so Mallory can teach us everything we need to know about the Marauder’s Map.
  4. After reemerging from that section of the library, Mallory and Jason discuss the Seven, where they share their seven favorite insights and observations from this swath of chapters. Here, they examine werewolf foreshadowing, Cedric’s introduction, and more.
  5. Finally, they award the House Cup to a worthy winner of the five chapters. This episode’s recipient is Remus (at this point, R.J.) Lupin, who becomes Harry’s most beloved teacher and promises to teach Harry to defend himself against dementors.

On Wednesday, Mallory and Jason return for Episode 13 of Binge Mode: Harry Potter, in which they will break down chapters 11-15 of Prisoner of Azkaban.
