“Beyond the Veil” Episode 4: “Through Harry, I Really Blossomed”

Some of the most amazing parts of the Harry Potter experience are the connections we get to make with other fans from around the world. In our interview with Eric Scull, we discuss the huge impact of fandom on his life and his fears that he may never have gotten acquainted with our favorite wizard. You can listen to this episode down below or on our podcast page.

On Episode 4, we discuss…



→Scholastic Book Fair pamphlets and reading Potter for points

→Fear of a life without Potter

→The influence of Potter on empathy and acceptance

→How fandom can give you the confidence to be yourself
