The Secrets of Harry Potter

As a long since lapsed Catholic I'm reminded that Fr. Roderick of the Archdiocese of Utrecht, in the Netherlands was the kind of priest that my friends and I could relate to growing up. He runs the Catholic Insider podcast, which includes a series of interesting podcasts on the mythology and symbols in the Harry Potter books and the Star Wars films.

It's a much neater way of communicating with a young audience than trying to get the books banned and convince them that J.K. Rowling's engaging works are somehow evil and dangerous, as the Christian Right in the US have been doing for years.
