Guest: Jon Ostenson, PhD, Associate Professor of English, BYU It’s the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter’s debut. Two whole decades have already passed. The series that has sold over 450 million copies also has movies, interactive websites like Pottermore, fictional textbooks, theme-parks, even a theatrical play created in its name. But, maybe the greatest significance of the Harry Potter legacy is how JK Rowling made reading magical again for a generation of adolescents.

The plan crafted by Senate Republicans bears a lot of similarity to what House Republicans passed several weeks ago. Major physician groups including the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics have expressed concern that the Republican proposals will make healthcare in the US worse.  Dr. Danielle Ofri recently published an Op-Ed in the New York Times encouraging health professionals to take a side in the healthcare debate and call their members of Congress.
