The Potterverse: A Harry Potter Podcast With Mary & Blake explores the entire universe and wizarding world of Harry Potter.
Married couple Mary (Gryffindor) & Blake (Slytherin) put aside their differences and discuss all things HP. From theme, to character studies, chapter by chapter breakdowns of the books, and full breakdowns of each film including the Fantastic Beasts series, we dive headfirst into what makes Harry Potter one of the best stories ever told. Be on the lookout for our personal stories, how we relate to each story and how we try to highlight the lesser appreciated perspectives throughout J.K. Rowling’s sprawling adventure.
Beware that spoilers are abound in this podcast! We will not be limiting our conversation only to the specific chapter which we are reading that episode. This is about the ENTIRE Potterverse – so the films, later chapters, or even entire other books will be examined every single episode.

A podcast - like hanging out with friends

Mary and Blake have done an amazing job of covering beloved material while simultaneously making you feel like you are sharing time with old friends. I enjoy their analysis, their banter, and their frequent pop culture references. I’ve even started hearing their sound clips in my head in real life. (“Not great Bob!”) I love how their true passion for Harry Potter extends to their family, including their cat Lumos and sharing their love for the series with their two children. Their other podcasts, Outlander Cast and Rise Up, have the same amazing joy to them. I’m looking forward to indulging in their GoT and The Crown podcasts as well. Don’t miss a chance to hang out and explore the Potter universe with these two dedicated fans!!

A light in the dark

I am so happy to find a couple that is as obsessed with all things Scotland like me! From Outlander to Harry Potter this Sassenach is a huge fan! I have listened to almost all of Mary and Blake’s podcasts because they are so much fun and make me stifle laughter as I listen to them at work. I love hearing both their takes on the same subject which is sometimes very different. It gives me fresh perspective. Glad to find my fellow nerds and love to continue the discussion of Harry Potter into 2020. Dumbledore said it best “Happiness can be found in the darkest times, if one only remembers to turn on the light”. Thank you for bringing me light in this dark year.
