Hold on to your broomsticks! This week we spoke with Katie L, the founder of Asheville's chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance. The Harry Potter Alliance is: "changing the world by making activism accessible through the power of story. Since 2005, [the HPA] engaged millions of fans through our work for equality, human rights, and literacy."
What does this mean exactly? We delve into the world of fan activism and learn about what types of charity efforts the Harry Potter Alliance works on, including Apparating Libraries and Accio Books. Next we learn that the popular wizarding sport Quidditch is now available to muggles globally. To top it all off, listen to Benny and Katie test their wits at a round of "Who Said It - The Pope or Voldemort?"
