Episode 2: On Sorting; Or, All Toddlers Are Slytherins


The photo in question: Issa’s son, age 2, practicing his Quidditch skills and being a Slytherin.

In this episode, we explore the Sorting methods for both the British and American schools of witchcraft and wizardry and explore the question posed by Dumbledore’s comment to Severus Snape that “You know, sometimes I think we sort too soon.”  Is 11 years old the right time to make sweeping determinations about a person’s character?

Please leave your comments below!  Tell us how you feel about Sorting, what House you’re in (British or American, or both) and whether you think Slytherins deserve their reputations as the antagonists of the Wizarding world?
