Nice one!!!

I always appreciate an open and honest discussion about mental health. This series (Harry Potter) provides a lot of opportunities for that, so this is a great angle for a podcast!

Validating

As someone who lives with mental illnesses and is a fan of the Harry Potter series, I love how this podcasts validates people living in a myriad of different situations. The hosts are always sensitive, but honest when discussing difficult topics. I also like how the podcast brings up how disability and mental illness can intersect with other identities such as gender. Additionally, I really love the anonymous stories at the end. The whispers remind me how much I forget that other people are hurting, too, even when I can’t always see it. Finally, the music used in the podcast is so soothing. Overall, I can’t wait to listen to more episodes. Great job!
