IM IN LOVE WITH POTTERLESS

Hey Mike!
I was only just introduced to Potterless 3 weeks ago and I’m already 40 episodes in!!!
I was at LeakyCon Denver and I thought you were hilarious so I checked out the podcast and I am IN LOVE. I don’t know what I’m going to do with my life when I catch up and you bet I will!

GOAT

I had heard of Potterless but all I knew is that it was a Harry Potter related podcast and nothing else. Last July I went to leakycon and during that weekend I attended up going to watch cosplay karaoke. Mike’s INSANE performance of Just a Friend inspired me to look up the podcast and I ended up binging the whole thing. Now a fan for life. Will DEFINITELY be listening to the next Olympian next.

Amazing!!

I love this podcast!!

I wanted to listen to a Harry Potter podcast for a while before I found Potterless, and I was so glad I did!! Mike is very funny when he doesn’t know anything. I relistened to all the book ones when I was finished. I want to go to one of his live shows, but none of them are in my area. I kindly sent him a message on Instagram thinking he wouldn’t even read it but he did!! He had a very nice response and kindly said he would try to do one in my area!! I’m very excited to see him in person.
