All things Potter!

I LOVE this podcast! The four hosts are each amazing women and know more about Potter than anyone I’ve ever met. They do great deep dives into theories and the story and cover basically every other part of the Potter universe as well. I also love their tangents - they give me life. Definitely listen to this podcast if you need more Potter in your life!!

It’s Okay

First few episodes are ROUGH but I was hopeful that the rest would be good. (My cousin recommended the podcast and I trust her judgement.) But jeez. The hosts go on FOREVER on tangents that are often not only not about the chapter, but not about Harry Potter at all. We get it, you’re friends. But it makes no sense to the rest of us. Also they have a tendency to talk over one another, and it makes the conversation really hard to follow. The editing is minimal and really needs to be improved. We don’t need to hear 15 minutes of laughing at a joke. Please continue with the analysis of the chapter.

I think the intended building of a community is great. However, one host in particular comes across as extremely judgmental despite all of them saying how important it is to be “kind” to one another. In addition, all of the hosts could do with reevaluating their tone and approach when they get reviews they don’t like. We give reviews so that you can improve. I would think that after you get reviews mentioning that you should stop dinging the bell for every color, you would consider that you should ding the bell for the important ones only, as you originally intended. Or that we don’t want to hear you laugh at inside jokes, you would edit that out.

Lastly, for the FB groups. If not already done (I don’t know-I haven’t had FB in years), it would be a good idea to publicly post the rules for all to see so that you don’t have to address it in your podcast and come across as somewhat self-righteous. The tone was completely inappropriate and demeaning. “Don’t message me individually.” “I won’t accept your friend request.” Etc. There is a much better way to create boundaries without lecturing your listeners.

I’d like to continue to listen all the way to 7, but I’m doubtful as the last few months of episodes have been disappointing. I’ve stopped recommending this to others because of the reasons listed above.
