This individual study was completed as a capstone course for the Digital Studies Minor. For this project, I created a segment on my podcast, Alexandra’s Adventures, called The Pensieve Podcast. This segment was dedicated to exploring the magical world of Harry Potter. In order to do this, I critically analyzed the Harry Potter novels and movies and presented my analysis through the format of a podcast. The focus was to explore the Harry Potter world, both canon and non-canon, and make connections that we as readers can learn from. This book series has had such a huge impact on its readers, so it is important to critically analyze something that has this much of an impact. In addition to my own commentary, there is an additional segment at the end of each episode called the Scholarly Second where I talk about other scholarship about Harry Potter.
