Episode 7 — Pajorts

August 17, 2017

In this episode, we talk about the cruel enslavement of house elves, wizard farm-to-table, fan fiction and the feasibility of interspecies intercourse in the wizarding world — all the stuff that's hot with kids these days! Joining us is our special guest, Robert/Dub, who also happens to be Cherie's "less cool" brother — his words, not mine. But also mine. Sprinkled in there is some other stuff that I can't remember because, geez Louise it takes forever to edit these things. Enjoy!

Episode 6 — Friendship Fest, Part 2: Ranch It Up or Bleu Cheese It

July 20, 2017

In this episode, we continue chatting with our Best Friend Forever Leah. Lauren attempts to reconstruct the plot of a lost piece of HP fanfiction written long ago. Cherie talks about her fantasy friendship with Shane, and grown man and high school photographer. Dayle talks about her salad-dressing-inspired personal mantra. Leah keeps supplying Dayle with alcoholic beverages. We sink into a long tangent about our middle and high school years and that wackiest of weeds. And what's this? We also argue about Snape ONCE AGAIN? Only on the Sorting Chat, my dudes.

Episode 5 — Friendship Fest, Part 1: Jude Lawd

July 4, 2017

Welcome to Episode 5! In this one, Cherie, Dayle and Lauren are joined by their old friend Leah, as they discuss the casting of Jude Law as young Dumbledore in the "Fantastic Beasts" films and his role in "The Young Pope." Join them as they also read their very first fan email — which was actually sent in error and intended for another, similarly (identically?!) named podcast. This episode is part one of two; come back for the exciting* conclusion!

Minisode 3 — Full Circle

June 30, 2017

In this, our third deliciously bite-sized minisode, we mention Harry Potter between discussion of mermaids, fictional boob injuries, fraudulent book reports and whether or not "Center Stage" is a good movie. Spoiler alert: um, it's not. Also, Cillian Murphy slips back in there somehow. This minisode consists of bonus material from our fourth episode, "Jezebel Spirit."

Episode 4 — Jezebel Spirit

June 6, 2017

In this fresh, hot and ready new episode, we have our first guests — a couple of teenagers who are moderately cooperative with our process. Everything turns to hell as we try to discuss wizard rock bands and Harry Potter-themed escape rooms and end up talking an awful lot about "Beauty and the Beast." Listen and cringe as we desperately try and get the teens to just engage with us for God's sake.

Minisode 2 — Crumpet

May 30, 2017

This mini-sode consists of unused material from our second episode — some of which I specifically said I was going to edit out of the episode, which I did, but am now sharing with you, our fine listeners, because we love you and we want you to live your best lives. We share more thoughts about "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," sandwiched between tangents about Prince William, Lauren's weird kid and buttery, flaky crusts.

Episode 3 — What Would You Live In If You Could Live In Anything?

May 9, 2017

In this episode: is Snape a good guy? Two of your hosts go to the proverbial mats on this issue while the third drinks herself into a diabetic coma. Then we talk about wizard birth control and whether or not Madam Pomfrey is a feminist. Note: Lauren's audio got jacked up toward the end, so apologies for the slight buzzing noise that accompanies her usually dulcet tones.

Minisode 1 — Brandy, You’re a Fine Girl

May 2, 2017

In this, our first mini-sode, we talk about poop, animagi, food magic and Irish setters. This mini-sode consists of material that was edited out of our first episode — which means it is, of course, super choice. 

Thanks to Zach Stidham for our theme song, "The Sorting Chat Theme." You can find Zach on Band Camp at zachstidham.bandcamp.com or on Instagram @zach.stidham.music

Episode 2 — Cillian Murphy is Walmart

April 18, 2017

In this episode, Cherie, Dayle and Lauren discuss "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." Cherie attempts to cast young Dumbledore. Dayle revisits accents. Lauren still thinks Molly Weasley needs to get a job. Note: this episode was recorded in late 2016, before the role of young Dumbledore was cast.

Episode 1 — These Dreams

April 10, 2017

Welcome to the inaugural episode of "The Sorting Chat," where three adult women, Dayle, Cherie and Lauren, talk about Harry Potter via Google Hangout. In this episode, we discuss the audiobooks, Draco/Hermione, poor Scottish accents and Manischewitz.
