The Glittering Bell Jar: A Harry Potter Podcast

Valerie Stimac/Brie Goumaz

Welcome to the Glittering Bell Jar, a Harry Potter podcast, where we explore the Harry Potter series by reading it backward. As you might recall, Harry and his friends discover the power of the glittering bell jar in the Department of Mysteries as it causes objects to move backward and forwards through time. We’re Brie & Valerie, two writers and Harry Potter fans who want to take you through the Harry Potter series in a way in which no one has done. Come along with us as we dissect each character and try to understand all the magic and common threads we may have missed! Follow us on Instagram, Twitter, Tiktok, and check our site at
