Welcome to our inaugural podcast! In this episode I discuss the first three books of the Harry Potter series; in particular, the depiction of the Dursleys, and how that depiction reflects on the values of the author, J.K. Rowling. How are villains portrayed? Are offensive stereotypes being enforced? How does this effect the way these characters are perceived? We’re going to dig into all of these ideas, and a lot more, in this episode of Irregularly Scheduled.
