Adri is joined by special guest Laurie, the producer for the Potterversity podcast to discuss chapter 12 of Half Blood Prince. We talk about how this chapter intersects with the politics of suspicion and consent, including the imperiused Katie Bell and Hermione’s skepticism about the character of the Half Blood Prince. We also talk about the nature…
 
This week, we talk about that chapter where Hermione helps Ron, unbeknownst to him, get into the Gryffindor Quidditch team. When we were thinking about which politics were driving the chapter, we thought about the politics of attention and preferential treatment. We’re also featuring the best answers to our question of the week! This week, the ques…
 
This week, we talk about that chapter where Harry met Voldemort’s extended family via Pensieve. When we were thinking about which politics were driving the chapter, we thought about the politics of ancestry and supremacism. One is based upon who your family was or what they did being an indicator of success (or failure) and the other is based on ho…
 
It’s the first day of classes at Hogwarts, and we are talking about the politics of cheating and the myth of self-sufficiency. This week we have a ton of questions that we try to answer as best as possible. Was Harry was cheating by following the hand-written instructions in the Half-Blood Prince’s Potions book? Why did Snape never share his potion…
 
Harry’s finally back at Hogwarts and he is in for a surprise when it comes to staff appointments for the coming school year. Adri and Helene talk about the politics of School Administration and Bullying when it comes to what is influencing the events of this chapter. We also talk about the restrictive and cruel law regarding reproductive rights tha…
 
Well, we’re back on the Hogwarts Express! This time, Helene and Adri talk about the many ways that they see the politics of nepotism and privilege interact in this chapter, as well as in the rest of the book. We talk about Slughorn’s favoritism of those associated with prestige and power, Draco’s lack of growth as a boy who insists you remember who…
 
Join us as the trio venture into Diagon Alley for the first time since the ministry has openly admitted that Lord Voldemort is back. Helene and Adri discuss the politics of Public Security and the politics of Commodities as it relates to both the ministry’s actions and how capitalism is alive and well, even in grim circumstances. Patrons get a bonu…
 
Harry gets to the Burrow earlier than scheduled and we get a glimpse into Arthur’s dearest ambition and Molly’s favorite nickname. Adri is joined by guest host Ann from the Speak Beasty podcast and they talk about the politics of tribalism and family, including why oh why Ginny Weasley loses her perpetual cool when it comes to Fleur joining the fam…
 
Harry is off to the Burrow under Dumbledore’s chaperonage, but before we pop in to see our favorite red-headed family, we’ve got a side quest to complete. Yes, you read that right, Dumbledore has one more trick up his sleeve (presumably the one with complete mobility): popping in to see a professor about leaving retirement. Helene and Adri talk abo…
 
Finally, a chapter with Harry in it! In between headlines and narrative paywalls (what did the rest of those articles say anyway?) Harry is snoozing away until Dumbledore appears in the Dursley’s home, just as he promised he would. Perhaps it’s the realization that Harry didn’t quite trust Dumbledore to show up, or it’s the weight of benign neglect…
 
Join us as we talk about chapter 2, "Spinner’s End" and its politics (alongside some talk about Bellatrix, Narcissa, Sirius, Severus, and Wormtail). We also talk about this insight into Snape’s humble abode and whether or not he wanted Sirius dead. Bonus Segment for Patrons: A look into MACUSA. Want access to bonus content and more? Become a Patron…
 
We're already on HBP (which is, incidentally, Helene's favorite book in the series). Helene and Adri talk about the politics of Foreign Affairs and Public Relations when it comes to the two ministers (one muggle, one wizard) and wonder about how we're supposed to feel about Dementors "breeding" (in a nutshell: not good). Bonus Segment for Patrons: …

We did it. We did it, Joe! We're done with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, so you know what that means: one whole episode devoted to the entire novel. Your hosts Adri and Helene zoomed out from our chapter to chapter format to bring you all the piping hot takes that can only be given after we read the books as adults through a different …
 
We've come to the end... The end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, that is! Hosts Helene and Adri talk about the final chapter of book 5 in the Harry Potter series through the lens of Grief and the Price of War. Helene delves deeply into the stages of grief, as Harry is personifying them in this chapter (so very well, may we add), while…
 
Helene and special guest Kat from the Alohomora! podcast talk about chapter 37 of Order of the Phoenix: "The Lost Prophecy." Join us as we discuss the politics of premeditation and strategy, along with Dumbledore and Harry’s complicated relationship and the potential motivations behind Dumbledore’s actions throughout the series. We also take a look…
 
Helene and Adri talk about how things are not looking up for Matt Gaetz, as well as chapter 36 of OotP. In discussing this chapter, we talk about the politics of pain and retributive justice as the ministry becomes a bit more crowded than anticipated. We also cover how Voldemort and Dumbledore come face to face in the Ministry of Magic while Harry …
 
Well, we're finally here. We're at that chapter in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix where Sirius is hit by a curse and disappears into the Veil at the Department of Mysteries. Someone give Adri all the tissues, please and thank you. When we read this chapter, we had very different takes on what the politics of the chapter were. Helene talk…
 
Helene is back and talking to Adri about chapter 34 of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, "The Department of Mysteries." We talk about the politics of classified information and leadership as the golden and silver trio sneak into the Department of Mysteries. Patrons get access to exclusive content on a weekly basis. This week for Patrons on…
 
In this episode, guest host Aureo Potts (@09aureo) joins Adri to talk about chapter 33 of OotP where Hermione leads Harry and Umbridge to the Forbidden Forest in a hair-brained scheme to get Umbridge off their back. While upon first encountering this chapter, we may not have thought about the implications of Centaurs having been given parcels of la…
 
Special guest Rex Hadden joins Adri for a conversation on how chapter 32 is driven by the politics of sabotage and surveillance. Umbridge tries to sabotage Harry's attempts at contacting the outside world while Hermione's actions can be seen as sabotage since she is trying to distract Umbridge from the truth. While this is happening, the methods th…
 
Content Warning: Police Brutality We're talking about police brutality in this episode, which includes a brief history of how police came to be in America, how Umbridge and the Aurors' treatment of Hagrid ties into our understanding of police brutality and excessive use of force, and how we can also see that dynamic at Hogwarts. Support our show fo…
 
Before today's episode, we thought that chapter 30, "Grawp" was a bit of a throwaway chapter. Not anymore. As we delve into this chapter through the lens of politics, specifically the politics of the colonial mindset and forced displacement, we notice that there are many nuances within the chapter that are illustrative of how the wizarding world op…
 
This week, we're tackling the legendary chapter where McGonagall faces off against Umbridge over Harry and the Weasley twins complete their Hogwarts career in the most unorthodox of manners. We talk about how speaking truth to power doesn't necessarily mean that you don't shield yourself from any negative consequences or prepare for that eventualit…
 
In this episode, Helene and Adri tackle the differences between the politics of anarchy and the politics of norms. They also discuss the ethical dilemma of having a potion like veritaserum in the wizarding world, as well as Hermione's enchantment that led Marietta to have very unfortunate skin problems related to blabbing a secret. Support the show…
 
In this episode, we talk about the iconic chapter where Dumbledore makes a break for it when Fudge thinks he’s got the upper hand on the whole Harry/Dumbledore situation because Umbridge has apprehended Harry red-handed. In current news, we cover the rise in attacks against people of Asian descent, specifically the murder of 8 people in Georgia acr…
 
We cover chapter 26 of OotP and talk about news in the United States (Georgia Republicans restricting access to voting, the COVID Relief Package), as well as news from across the pond (Meghan and Harry's interview with the incomparable Oprah and how race politics inform the Firm's treatment of them). This chapter is where the news of Harry's interv…
 
Harry goes on a very awkward date with Cho in this chapter, and Helene and Adri get into the politics of suspicion and scapegoating. We also talk about Hagrid's similarities to Harry, and wonder what it would have looked like had Hagrid also taken Neville under his wing from day 1. Wondering where you can get extra content for our episodes while su…
 
Masculinity and invasion of privacy. What do they have in common? Chapter 24 of OotP, of course! In this episode, we talk about current news (unsurprisingly QAnon is still prevalent in our politics), Harry's journey through masculinity (and how other characters display this trait), and the invasion of privacy present in this chapter (and in the Min…
 
Texas is under snow and without power, Texas Senator and noted Insurrectionist Ted Cruz flees to Cancun to then throw his daughters under the bus when it becomes a media PHENOMENON (your honor, my daughters made me do it, I swear! Women lead us men astray, let's focus on them and how to hold them accountable), and we cover chapter 23 of Harry Potte…
 
For chapter 22 of OotP, special guest Mike from the Potterless Podcast, joins Helene and Adri in talking about the 45th President’s second impeachment trial, the world building involved in creating St. Mungo’s, how people can create narratives based on limited facts and bias, and our love for Ginny Weasley. Support our podcast by becoming a Patron:…
 
A few years ago, Erin and Adri covered the politics of Christmas and how the series was designed around this loose idea of cultural Christianity, even in the wizarding world. Today, we expand on this theme of cultural Christianity as default by having a conversation about what it's like to be a Jewish person living in a majority Christian world wit…
 
In this jam-packed chapter, Harry discovers what those winged horses he can now see are called and the reason why he can see them while others can't, he kisses Cho, gets some emotional intelligence intel from Hermione, and he has a terrifying dream from the point of view of an actual snake. We talk about the nuances of the politics of privilege and…
 
Hagrid's back and we have a new presidential administration, BABY! In this episode, we talk about Hagrid and Madame Maxime's approach to covertly approaching giants and the biases that Hagrid shows in his re-telling. We discuss the nuances between lobbying and diplomacy, as well as the parallels between historical segregation in the United States, …
 
We've got a special guest this week! Eric from the long-running Potter podcast MuggleCast and his new solo project, the Thank You for Spieling podcast joins Adri, Helene, and K. Alex to talk about Chapter 19 of OotP. In typical Accio Politics fashion, we go very deep into our examination of the text and what that means in terms of social and struct…
 
We're back with the first episode we recorded after the new year started, and 2021 is certainly not pulling any punches in the political arena. With just the first week of 2021 under our belt, we've seen an attempted coup, this time by force (riots led by white supremacist groups, the proud boys, and Q conspiracy theorists at the Capitol incited by…
 
Helene, K. Alex, and special guest Aureo from the Speak Beasty podcast talk about chapter 17 of OotP, discuss the news of the week (including some news about the author of the series), debate over the politics of Hermione securing silence by magical means, consider if Molly really wanted to stop the trio from becoming politically involved, and much…
 
In this episode, Helene and Adri land on the same politic for the first time since the show format started leaving the politics of the chapter open! Before they discussed chapter 16 of OotP, "In the Hog's Head," they talked about the news of the week, which included presidential pardons and the last days of the Trump presidency. Skipping the Hogwar…
 
This week, we finally get to chapter 15 of OotP, "The Hogwarts High Inquisitor," in which the Ministry passes middle of the night legislative action to give one of their own, Dolores Umbridge, oversight power for an independent educational institution: Hogwarts. Of course, we find this super problematic. Also problematic? The complex nature of repo…
 
Hello lovelies! The universe has once again conspired against us in recording our episode for chapter 15 of OOTP. Instead, we are releasing the Patreon-only Girl Who Lived: Draco/Darcy episode so your feed isn't quite so empty today. We want to know all your thoughts, so send us a virtual owl (an MP3 of your voice OR words are fine) us at info@acci…
 
Today’s episode isn’t about a chapter, but a character (and some other topics of interest). Actor/Director/Producer Chris Rankin, who embodied the character of Percy Weasley in the film adaptation of the Harry Potter series, graciously joined us 19 years after the filming of Sorcerer’s Stone. We get to the nitty-gritty of how Chris got into the Har…
 
In this episode, we talk about Percy's letter to Ron, the social pressures that the trio face (especially Harry), teenage crushes and the teenage mind, Percy's motivation and reasoning to embrace the Ministry's line of thinking rather than his own family's, and much more. Support our podcast and get access to exclusive content for as little as $2/m…

This week has been a very long year. We're exhausted. Anyhow, we talk about the 2020 presidential election (is it over yet? Are we there yet, mom and dad?) and talk about the horrifying chapter that is Detention with Dolores. Patrons get a bonus segment: The Elusive Latinx Vote. How do we talk about Latinx in the US and why can't the Democratic par…
 
It's the spookiest season of all: Presidential Election anxiety! As we all huddle under our covers binge-eating Oreos and try to collectively unclench our jaws, we talk about yet another anxiety-inducing topic: Chapter 12 of OotP. This is the one where the Trio start classes once again, the twins remain coy about their benefactor, we hear about Umb…
