Harry Potter and the Sacred Text, The Jordan B. Peterson Podcast and Zealot

Happy April Fool's Day! Our Castologists jokingly thought it would be funny to do a Religion theme on this prankiest of days because it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Liz found enlightenment in the words of J.K. Rowling with Harry Potter and the Sacred Text, Zane gets down to worshipping false gods with Zealot, and Patrick gets controversial with The Jordan B. Peterson Podcast.
