The "I usually don't write reviews" review

So I don't usually write reviews, but I really love this podcast. I think the people who come together who make this podcast happen are all incredibly intellectual, down to earth, and insightful. When you read Harry Potter as a kid, you don’t think about these underlying themes or about life. But I think the way this podcast dissects everything is done really well. It’s really endearing to connect to the hard difficult things of life with something like Harry Potter. It’s hard for me to put to words how this podcast makes me feel, but it’s honestly one of the nicest break I get in my day. There are some episodes that are light and some that are heavy and have caused a lot of gears to start working in my head. I’m really grateful for this work of art and I would highly recommend it.

My favorite podcast

I adore this podcast. I love hearing the in-depth analyses offered by Vanessa and Casper. The podcast is a delightful mix of plentiful levity and fun where it can be had, but without being afraid to probe uncomfortable sociopsychologial issues where they arise. As their reading of the fifth book comes to an end, I’m already preemptively missing when the series concludes!
