    Severus Snape: Character Study, Part 2

    Severus Snape: Character Study, Part 2

    Crack open a nice cold Snapel and settle in for our second conversation about everyone's favorite bat-like professor. From his love of the very old and valuable Whomping Willow to his choice to pair Harry and Draco together at the Dueling Club, we can say for certain that every action Snape carries out is due to his love of Lily and his promise to protect Harry. It was all just as Snape planned!

    Minerva McGonagall: Character Study, Part 1

    Minerva McGonagall: Character Study, Part 1

    At long last, Alice and Martha discuss Queen McGonagall in the first book! A no-nonsense nurturer who would never think of tackling a full-grown mountain troll on her own, McGonagall never favors the Gryffindors, and that's just a few of the things we love about her!

    It's time to talk about *Professor* Hagrid, who is as natural and gifted at teaching as he is with magical creatures. Yes, everything's great when it comes to Hagrid in the third book. Just don't ask how the flobberworms are doing.

5 star Reviewer! ,

Very good and fun potter podcast

I really enjoy all of the book review episodes and alway want to listen to more after! Their jokes and terrible but still very funny. Martha’s impressions are very good but all sound the same. Overall the podcast is fun to watch anywhere!

The Realest and Weirdest HP Podcast

This review is LONG overdue. I have been a listener since episode one, and my morning “get ready” routine always includes tuning in to hear Alice and Martha’s HP takes. I love how much these sisters love Harry Potter, and they have brought the series to life in a whole new way for me.

I also appreciate that this podcast does not shy away from criticism, especially in light of the author’s transphobic comments and behavior. Alice and Martha demonstrate how you can maintain a fandom while offering a space for criticism and accountability.

Can’t say enough great things about these real weird sisters and their magical podcast creation! ❤️

Simply the best

This is simply the best Harry Potter podcast! The close examination of chapters is always interesting and full of fun stories from the girls. The movie episodes are hysterical and this podcast always keeps me laughing and keeps the love of this series alive. One of the only podcasts I try to keep up with in these crazy times!
