#occupygringotts on TWH

This past Saturday, Harry and the Potters contributed to the #OccupyBoston protests, part of the larger #OccupyWallStreet movement, in their own magical way. Drawing parallels to the Potterverse, they declared an #OccupyGringotts movement, as described on their tumblr.

In this spirit, TWH joined in this week with an entire episode dedicated to a discussion of the wizard economy, Gringotts, social movements, government, media and the larger "-isms" addressed by JKR.

We spun tracks primarily from the first and second volumes of Wizards and Muggles Rock for Social Justice and Rocking Against Voldemedia, which both supported the Harry Potter Alliance, the #1 Harry Potter social justice activist group, which we've talked about on several occasions.

But on to the podcast...
