Ria Gonz ,

Obsessed!

I recently stumbled upon this podcast in another streaming app and found myself binge-listening to it. Similar to Mike, I’d only read the HP books as an adult (actually only read it last year if you can believe it lol) and it was fascinating to see I wasn’t the only one who noticed (or missed) certain things in the books. I had been craving for something Potter related to consume that wasn’t re-reading the series or watching the movies again, and this podcast was absolutely perfect! I’ve listened to about 70 episodes in about less than a month. I love the quips and the jokes and I adore all the guests. Love the tangents and all the discourse. Mike is absolutely hilarious and is a fantastic host. No complaints! I am only scared I’ll run out of episodes and have to wait 2-3 weeks for the next one lmao

(oh and also I hope Mike warms up to Fantastic Beasts, especially Newt Scamander! He’s such a uniquely amazing wizard, plus he’s probably the greatest Hufflepuff we’ll ever know!! Mike, I know you did the books but please review the movies as well hehe!)

Heymundane ,

A fun, amazing way to view HP!

I found myself reading the series again since the quarantine just because of all the horrible things happening, and a friend recommended this to me and I love it! I’ve been binging and used it to relieve my depression. Thank you, Shubes. Wizard on!!

Kaavya K ,

Amazing
