Ride or Die from Day 1 - Harry Potter Sorcerer’s Stone - Journey from Platform 9 3/4 & The Sorting Hat (Book 1 Chapters 6 & 7)

Hi! Welcome to this week's episode of Belated Binge, where we cover chapters 6 & 7 of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone. On The Journey to Platform 9 3/4, we meet the Weasleys! Sparking the inspiration for this week's exclusive bonus episode "MI7 Kids" about Molly Weasley and her role in Dumbledore's master plan. This is available for 'All Star' level Patrons (https://www.patreon.com/BelatedBinge). The introduction to the Weasleys begins the single most important friendship of Harry's life, which I defend in this episode. They nearly throw down with Malfoy and his goons on the train, they meet the future 3rd member of the golden trio, and in The Sorting Hat all 3 get sorted into Gryffindor. We focus on Ron as a character in the Scouting Report, we foreshadow what's to come, we theorize about what would happen without the Harry & Ron train ride (Draco friendship??), and we give away our episode awards! Thanks for hanging out with me and please join in on the discussion on Patreon, on social (@belatedbinge), or email the show: belatedbinge@gmail.com. Next week we'll cover chapters 8 & 9 with a Special Guest: Amanda from the Fox and the Foxhound podcast (https://www.thefoxandthefoxhound.com/)! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/belated-binge/support
