The absolute best

Dear Mike, hi !
I’ve been having some rough times for the past 2-3 years.
My constant anxiousness wouldn’t even let me chill for a second. And I definitely could not sleep without stress.
The potterless podcast helped me A LLLOPOTTT. I would listen to it during the day whenever i felt like extremely anxious and it would make me feel better almost instantly.
And at nights, i would replay the episodes that I’ve already listened to (so I wouldn’t miss any of the new ones because of falling asleep lol), and that made me sleep without thinking about the stuff i was dealing with.
I’ve listened to each episode a few times, i love them so much. They’re very interesting, fun, and your comments on different parts of the books/movies were spot on.
Thank you sir, thank you a lot.
Hope you have the happiest moments in life.
Wizard on !

Love the sassy take on HP

I stumbled onto this podcast years after it started. Which I love because I can binge listen during my ten hour work shifts. Mike is so relatable as an adult reading HP and he’s said exactly what I’ve thought as I reread these with my daughter. His guest hosts are great at not ruining the plot lines to come and I have discovered a couple additional podcast to follow due to the hilarious banter that follows. If you’re a potterhead this is a must listen to podcast!

A little late..

I’m a little late to this amazing podcast but it has been so much fun to re-dive through the Harry Potter series through the eyes of someone who is reading it for the first time. Mike is SO FUNNY and I’ve become addicted and while sometimes I want to respond and/or argue with him I’ve enjoyed this podcast thoroughly! Highly recommend
