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 Goblet of Fire, chapters 6–10. To help guide you on that journey, here is a map of the 17th 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.
- Mallory and Jason start their journey by diving straight into the Pensieve, where they analyze the central theme of this section of the book: light and dark.
- Next, they sneak into the Restricted Section so Mallory can teach us everything we need to know about Portkeys.
- 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 Quidditch gambling, yellow journalism, and more.
- Finally, they award the House Cup to a worthy winner of the five chapters. This episode’s recipient is Viktor Krum, who loses the World Cup final but impresses all in attendance—and all readers—with his Quidditch intelligence, daring, and broom skills.
On Wednesday, Mallory and Jason return for Episode 18 of Binge Mode: Harry Potter, in which they will break down chapters 11–15 of Goblet of Fire.
