Season 4 begins! This time we’re tackling one of the most beloved series of all time: Harry Potter. We’ll look at the global story structure for each book using a four-act structure, and we’ll do a breakdown of a favorite scene using the 5 Commandments of Storytelling from the Story Grid. We’ll also be nearly constantly interrupted by a preschooler and cap off each episode by defining a literary term you’ll want to know.
You can also listen using any number of podcast platforms and apps including Spotify, Breaker, Pocket Casts, Radio Public, Stitcher, and Google Podcasts.
