Show Notes

After a summer hiatus we’re back to discuss the enigma that is ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’!


The eighth Harry Potter story has been released! Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is now open to the public and millions of readers around the world have already devoured and studied the play’s script. There’s a lot to be said about this installment in the Harry Potter series and we’re throwing our hat into the ring! From the experience of reading it to all of its flaws, we talk Cursed Child — the good, the bad and the ugly — during this special episode of Bookmarked.
