S1E8: Cats, Classes and Rock Cakes

This is the discussion for chapter 8 of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, ‘The Potions Master’. This chapter is very short and really just sets up the main mystery while giving us an insight into daily life at Hogwarts. I speculate on the tragic backstory of Professor Binns and explain why cats and dogs do not speak the same language.

The Hogwarts Kitchen segment is on rock cakes, and you can find the BBC’s recipe for them here: https://www.bbc.com/food/recipes/rock_cakes_03094
