Corrections & Retractions:
- Jeff spoke about Joseph Campbell in the present tense–but, in fact, he is no longer with us. He passed away on October 30, 1987, 30 years before this podcast was released. We miss him deeply.
- Okay, technically Harry doesn’t actually cast priori incantatem–it’s just a magical side effect created by the collision of his spell with Voldem… You-Know-Who’s.
- Yes, Jeff totally intended to say “out of the belly’s whale.” It’s a thing.
