This week on Hagrid’s Hut, Olivia and Rebecca discuss Joanne Rowling. They talk about her personal history, facts about her process while writing the series, the controversial things she has said and done that has broken the hearts of many fans, and the consequences of her actions. Rebecca and Olivia end the episode with a ray of hope and love as they discuss the reactions of her colleagues (and other people involved in the creation of the Harry Potter universe) to her transphobia.
