In the 18th episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie talk about chapters 18-20 of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. CJ comes up with a weird plan for dealing with werewolves, we both get grossed out by Peter Pettigrew, and we discuss some intriguing theories about who sent the patronus across the lake. Plus, CJ decides prongs was a narwhal.

In the 17th episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie talk about chapters 15-17 of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. We have some deep chatz about masculinity, the Church and whether Harry should be allowed a Firebolt (spoiler alert, NO). CJ is still preoccupied by how Hermione is getting to all her classes. But the greatest mystery remains... when will Voldemort show up?

In the 16th episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie talk about chapters 12-14 of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. CJ's theories are on overdrive this month - they think Lupin might be Hermione and/or Sirius Black; and they're still very suspicious about Crookshanks the cat... who also might be Sirius Black? Other than that, it's mostly just us being annoyed with Harry's recklessness.

In the 15th episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie talk about chapters 9-11 of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. We start with a recap for newcomers about why CJ never read the books before, and get an update on how CJ is feeling about witchcraft and the Church. CJ has a new theory about how Sirius Black is getting into the castle, and still can't work out whether Lupin is a good guy or bad guy. Arlie manages to stay neutral in the face of some ~interesting~ theories.

In the 14th episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie talk about chapters 6-8 of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. CJ has noticed Hermione has too many classes in her timetable, and the working theory is... three Hermiones? Other mysteries include how Sirius Black got into the castle, and what a boggart would turn into if either of us found one in our house. Also, a tangent on knee caps.

In the 13th episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie talk about chapters 1-5 of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. CJ is looking for Voldemort around every corner. Even really unlikely corners. Even corners that aren't really corners. JK very successfully throws us off the Sirius Black scent, and we have to announce a Major Incident.

In the 12th episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie watch the second Harry Potter movie in the company of special guest Charles Adrian Gillott. The consensus is that this film makes no sense, but it was definitely funny to behold. We tackle tough questions like what is going on? Why is any of this happening? And oh my god why are there so many spiders at Hogwarts?

In the 10th episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie talk about chapters 14-18 of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. This month Percy is acting weird and we’re very suspicious – could he be colluding with the Heir of Slytherin? Or is it something more… innocent? CJ's theories are getting wilder and in some cases more accurate. But we won't tell them which ones are which. Plus, CJ is creeped out by the giant spiders but not for the reasons you'd expect.

In the 9th episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie talk about chapters 10-13 of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. CJ is overwhelmed by theories about who might be the heir of Slytherin, but there's one thing they know for sure - Hagrid is innocent. We also tackle the important questions of the day, like where is Voldemort's body? Is it in storage? Why is Lucius Malfoy such a loser? And could we use polyjuice potion to take down the Government?

In the eighth episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie talk about chapters 5-9 of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. This month CJ blesses us with a number of theories that range from incredible (re: Mrs Norris) and slightly disturbing (re: possible hiding places for Lord Voldemort), to just very confused (re: candidates for heir of Slytherin). We also discuss public toilet anxieties for arguably a bit too long.

In the seventh episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie talk about chapters 1-4 of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. We're also joined by our friend Freddy McConnell, who owns a first edition copy of the Philosopher's Stone (sadly rendered worthless in a terrible accident involving his dad heavily underestimating the potential of this book series). This month we ponder where wizards get off thinking telephones are so weird when they go around sending messages by owl all the time, what Lucius Malfoy is doing selling naughty items at Borgin and Burkes, and whether Ginny is a giant lesbian.

Join us for a discussion centred mostly around the world class child acting delivered by our main protagonists.

In the fourth episode of The Boy Who Hasn't Lived, CJ and Arlie talk about chapters 13-17 of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. CJ has now read an entire Harry Potter book! CJ is now normal. This week we talk about our favourite characters from the first book, whether the Forbidden Forest is an appropriate location for a detention, and whether or not Snape is evil. (He is. He isn't. He is. He... isn't? He is. Or is he?) Plus, there's a heated debate over which body part is most ideal to host a disembodied dark wizard, and CJ reveals whether they still identify as a muggle.
