“Beyond the Veil” Episode 24: “Expecto Patronum!”

We know how Harry, Ron, Hermione, and our other favorite characters in the Potter universe cast a spell to keep Dementors out of their lives, but how can we use this metaphor in the Muggle world? In this episode, we discuss the ins and outs of Dementors, Patronuses, and what we can do to manage our feelings when life gets really difficult. You can listen to this episode down below or on our podcast page.



On Episode 24, we discuss…

→ What exactly is a Dementor? What exactly is a Patronus?

→ How a Dementor is like depression

→ Sirius Black protected himself from Dementors without his wand, and so can we

→ Listener thoughts on Dementors, Patronuses, and mental health

→ How to cast your own Patronus
