Review: This “Harry Potter” Reread Podcast Will Literally Change the Way You Read the Series
If there’s one thing MuggleNet’s global reread of the Harry Potter series, Alohomora!, is known for, it’s diving deep into the tiniest aspects of the books. And I mean deep dive into the smallest details. Listeners and hosts alike love the detail we explore and all of the new ways we’ve found to discuss these books that we love.
One of the most popular and exciting ideas we’ve explored on the show is the idea of ring composition, an academic theory used in literature through the ages from ancient times to today. On three episodes of Alohomora! – 254, 281, 297 – we explored how the entire series forms a ring, with the lessons and moments reflecting throughout. The connections we made across books blew our minds, but as usual, we wanted to go even deeper. How would our understanding of the books change if we looked for ring composition across chapters in each individual novel?
With that, our resident curious Ravenclaw decided that she wanted to explore that idea. Alohomora! already had a full docket of episodes upcoming, and this needed more than just a few more episodes here or there. And so, Full Circle was born. It’s a project of love, curiosity, exploration, and wonder. You’ll be as surprised as we were at all the connections you’ve never seen before that will touch you, make you laugh, and definitely make you think. You’ll never read Harry Potter – and maybe anything else – the same again.
