Episode 20 — I Care For People

10/4/2018
More
Hello, and welcome to the "best" Harry Potter podcast with the worst audio! We've got a little bit of everything for you in this one — except for Dayle, who was out sick. (#wandsoutfordayle) It's just Cherie and Lauren this time, talking about The Hogwarts Express and general boarding school transportation, lamenting "The Cursed Child" (again) and eventually devolving into punch-crunk conversation about Season 3 of "The Surreal Life" and our love for Brigitte Nielsen. It's what all the hep...

Episode 19 — Wackadoodle

Hello, friends and lovers! Welcome to this very, very late episode. Join us as we try to answer listener questions, and get sidetracked by snakes and soccer! Also, Lauren's daughter Lucy interrupts several times until we decide to invite her to talk to us, at which point she clams up faster than that frog from the Bugs Bunny cartoons. Kids! They love to troll! Thanks to listener Katie for bearing with us and for being kind about our ignorant assumptions about the British. It's the American...

Episode 18 — People Hanging Out With Ghosts

7/5/2018

Hey everybody, it's us! We're back, and ready to talk about Harry Potter! In between talking about makeup and lovingly criticizing our friends and family for their shortcomings! Listen as we discuss the dynamics of couples with both magical and non-magical partners, ghosts and wizard sex! Listen also as we are plagued by technical difficulties, turning this episode into a narrative disaster! It's our very own Cursed Episode! If you listen to it, you'll be dead in 7 days! It's good...

Episode 17 — Diggle Diggle Diggly Dig Diggly Diggly

6/7/2018

Hello, and welcome back to the OTP — the One True Podcast about Harry Potter! Or so we have said. This time, we were missing our dear Dayle, but stepping into her shoes is the indomitable Dr. Saulter, who is both a mental health professional and a mother of Cherie! We spend a while talking about the Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery game, before moving onto using Dr. Saulter's expertise to try and diagnose the mental health of all our favorite characters. Meanwhile, Lauren and Cherie both...

Episode 16 — Potions Anonymous

5/3/2018
More
Welcome back to this Harry Potter podcast that has no regard for structure or even really being entertaining! On this month's episode, we chat with guest John — and his alter-ego Charlaine — ostensibly about wizard drugs, but eventually leading to Lauren just reading the titles of Chuck Tingle novels aloud and saying sex stuff. It's great material, everybody, you should really get in on this. [CW: Discussion of substance abuse, sex work, erotica, mention of nonconsent] Web:...

Episode 15 — #Not All Gryffindors

4/5/2018
More
Hello and welcome again to this podcast, where we do Harry Potter stuff most of the time. Join us as we welcome our first repeat guest, our best friend for as long as we feel like it, Leah! We asked her, a confirmed Hufflepuff, to join the rest of us three — each a Gryffindor, Ravenclaw and Slytherin — in talking about our respective houses and their characteristics. We start off with a little talk about some recent Twitter drama concerning the March for Our Lives, continue on with the...

Episode 14 — I Bless the Floos Down In Africa

3/1/2018
More
Hey cool dudes, and welcome to the One Harry Potter Podcast that can't decide if it wants to be funny or contemplative — and ends up being neither! Come with us as we intend to talk about HP, immediately veer into talking about cute animals we saw online, try to rein it back in and end up reading the Harry Potter Wikia to you. Then, we go light on laughs — and long on ... lambasting? — as we discuss a couple of times Our Lady of Fantasy Fiction, JK Rowling, got herself into hot water, and...

Episode 13 — Roughin' It

2/1/2018
More
Hello again, and welcome to another episode of the Harry Potter show that just won't quit — except when it does, eventually. In this episode, Dayle was out sick (#rememberDayle #RIPDayle) but will return resplendent for our next foray. In her place is The Sorting Chat superfan, Lauren's brother-in-law Ian! And also Lauren's sister Hayley, who tolerates us all. We're discussing The Sorting at Hogwarts, The Houses, and The Lighting of Juvenile Fires In Yards. This episode also includes the...

Episode 12 — My Patronus Is a Turkey Leg

1/11/2018
More
Bonjour dudes, and welcome back to this podcast where adults talk about Harry Potter and other things with a startling lack of clarity! We are back from our holiday hiatus, and — look, we've done our best here. We took suggestions from a few listeners and from our own brains for discussion topics, threw them into a hat and pulled some out at random. What follows is just shy of 45 minutes of listing things and trying to sing in sync over webchat. Two thirds of us were under the weather and...

The Third Floor Corridor — Trout Sniffer

12/21/2017
More
Happy Holiday times and welcome to another episode of our occasional sub-podcast, The Third Floor Corridor, where we veer wildly off course to talk about something that is not Harry Potter. In this very merry 'sode, we talk about everybody's favorite film franchise about an aspiring young sociopath, "Home Alone." We will cover some of the bases, leave others entirely unexplored and maybe even slip in a little Potter talk with us. Merry Christmas, you filthy animals! Visit us at...

Episode 11 — The Biggerstaff-Wood Connection

12/7/2017
More
Hello everyone, and welcome back to the only Harry Potter Podcast produced by people who would definitely get on your nerves in a bar. This week — despite the misleading title — we'll be talking about everybody's (least?) favorite bad boy, Draco Carl Malfoy. And, of course, we'll also spend a prodigious amount of time talking about other things: horse girls, Amy Grant, HP/OW fan fiction. And So. Much. LESS. So strap in and do the dang thing with us! Visit us at www.thesortingchat.com and...

Episode 10 — Walkin' Into Spiderwebs

Hey guys! A brand new episode has come down the pike for you — and what a doozy. This time, we spend a while trying to talk about privilege in the Wizarding World and Hogwarts pedagogy, before eventually spending the rest of our time making up Harry Potter fan fiction based on pop songs. It's a pre-Thanksgiving miracle! Visit us at www.thesortingchat.com and send us all your favorite Evanescence lyrics at thesortingchat@gmail.com or facebook.com/thesortingchat. Thanks as always to Zach...

The Third Floor Corridor — Curiosity Door

11/8/2017
More
Hello, and welcome to the inaugural episode of The Sorting Chat's sub-podcast, The Third Floor Corridor, where we very occasionally will veer dangerously off-track and talk about things that are not Harry Potter. In this episode, we're talking about Stranger Things, mainly season 2, in the way that only we can: in long strings of uninterrupted stream-of-consciousness. Listen as we spend at least 20 minutes gushing and complaining, and then spend basically the rest of our time playing a...

Minisode 6 — Harry Potter and a Lady of a Chance

10/26/2017
More
Happy Harry-ween, everyfolk! Here's our sixth mini-sode, wherein we talk about wizard fine dining, wizard Halloween costumes and that age-old question: is Harry Potter a subject of The Queen? Inquiring minds want to know! And we give them very, very unsatisfactory answers. That's just what we're into here at The Sorting Chat! This episode's title came from listener Stephanie, who had the most votes in our "generate a HP title with your dang auto-fill" contest. Please share your thoughts...

Episode 9 — These Are Their Stories

10/12/2017

Welcome back to your only source for online Harry Potter tomfoolery commentary that I know of at this time! We're talking about the wizarding legal and criminal justice system, as only three people who are relatively uninformed on such a topic can! We also talk about a few other things here and there, just to pull the ol' switcheroo on ya. So come, enjoy yourselves on this especially heinous ride! Please share your thoughts and Harry Potter/Law and Order crossover fan fiction with us at...

Minisode 5 — The Gute'll Getcha

9/28/2017

Hello people friends — and other friends? — and welcome to a new minisode. We're talking about squibs, the Harry Potter Universe's most unfortunate souls, and what kind of jobs they might do. (Thanks, superfan Jordan Haggerty, for reminding us that squibs exist and getting this talk-ball rolling.) We then catch that slammin' tangent wave into discussing theme park rides and our ideal Wizarding World attractions. Ride this wave with us, friends. Ride it all the way home.

Episode 8 — It's My Job!

Welcome, friends, to another of these things we keep doing. In this episode, Cherie, Dayle and Lauren make the case that Mary Poppins is a witch, continue stalking another similarly-named Harry Potter podcast, and come to a startling revelation about Lauren's true feelings about Molly Weasley. How can we serve you? It's our pleasure! Please share your thoughts with us about turn of the century chimney sweeps at thesortingchat@gmail.com or at www.facebook.com/thesortingchat. Thanks as...

This party size episode features talk omitted from our last episode with our guest, Robert/Dub(/Dove?). We talk a little bit about Pop Pop, mostly about Harry Potter, and poop on Dothan, Alabama like so many Molly Weasleys. (Apologies to Dothan: not for pooping on you, but for confusing you with Enterprise, Alabama, the real home of the Boll Weevil Statue). Give it a listen, folks. You're not going to find quality rambling like this on any other low-rated nonsense podcast, I can tell you...
