Books and Cleverness
About This Show
Books and Cleverness is a new Harry Potter podcast where two enthusiastic fans go back to the beginning with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Join us as we board the Hogwarts Express back to school, and return to the world that enraptured us so many years ago.
Starting with the very first chapter of the very first book, we’re reading and discussing Harry’s journey chapter by chapter. Not only are we talking about canon, but we’re also discussing the movies, news in the Potter world, the supplemental books, Pottermore, J.K. Rowling’s thoughts, and the fandom.
As we explore the Wizarding World all over again, we want you to come along with us, and we want to hear what you think. Read the chapters with us, then listen and tell us what's on your mind.
We solemnly swear that we are up to no good,
Brigid and Archer.Read more »

3: I Can Talk to Snakes, It's Normal
We have an important announcement in this episode's Potterwatch, but you'll have to listen to find out what it is. In the Common Room accidental magic is the topic of the day. What kind of accidental magic would we have probably done had we been witches? Then, what's our favorite instance of accidental magic from the books? Keeping on topic with Chapter 2, "The Vanishing Glass," was a little more difficult this episode. Harry's life is horrible, and poor Mrs. Figg trips over her cat. However, that means Harry gets to spend the day at the zoo (even if he just wants to be left alone). While Dudley's getting more and more bored, Harry makes one of his very first friends. Finally, in our recurring segment, Theories and Queries, we talk about canon. There's a lot of Harry Potter information out there, but what's the truth? Is it only the books, or do we include the movies and supplemental books? What about Pottermore or Cursed Child? And, most controversially, what about Rowling herself? NEWLY EDITED EPISODE UP!
