I really love the Harry Potter commentary but my problem comes in when the politics and pandering start.
The hosts LOVE to add in little (and big) comments that are completely ridiculous and sooooooooo left leaning! They add “feminism” (or what they perceive feminism to look like~ spoiler, they’re wrong) and “social justice” to everything, and they’re stance and constant harping on JK Rowling’s tweets are so juvenile, nuance is COMPLETELY lost on them!
Overall my biggest problem with this podcast is all the leftist privilege involved in their kowtowing and pandering to the mob!
I understand that almost all of the media are on the left, and oftentimes like to flaunt their political views by pandering and making comments that make them seem like they are on the “moral” side. The privilege I’m talking about is this belief that because they’re on the “moral” side that everyone will agree with them and no one will, lets say, stop listening or leave a bad review, and even if they do then they have the moral high ground from which they can laugh at and tease the person who left the review.
This, in contrast to everyone outside the left wing, who can’t say they’re beliefs without fear of being brought down and canceled, is why I think the lefties on this podcast are privileged in a way they will never think about because they are on the “good” side. I know they’ll never change but it would be nice if they’d stop viewing us as monsters who don’t care about people’s well-being.
The other thing I don’t think you understand is that, just because you put JK Rowling down as a bigoted, transphobic, racist doesn’t mean you’re not immune to ridicule from the mob too.
You DO have a podcast all about her books! You don’t see that just because you invite a trans femme on every few weeks to call her more names doesn’t mean that they aren’t coming after YOU next.
I really hope you read this, because I can’t stand your incessant preaching.
Furthermore, the fact that you have a podcast all about her (JK Rowling) books and her content and yet try to tell people using you’re platform (which you have gained by talking about her content) that they shouldn’t give this woman-creative their money, because she has “problematic views,” is so nonsensical!
You call yourselves feminists yet you take down an amazing woman entrepreneur like JK Rowling, it’s the definition of grifting. And trying to get people to figure out ways not to give JK Rowling money, which she has earned by making something that you guys yourselves dote upon frequently, and upon which you make money by having a monetized podcast about, makes you leeches! You leech onto her work and make money off of it, yet you see no issue in telling others not to give the person who created it out of her own blood, sweat, and tears any money or credit. Sick.
I will not be listening anymore and I sincerely hope you think about what you’re doing. (By the way, I’m only thirteen and if I can see the discrepancies in what you’re doing, then I think four adults could see it too) to quote another view you guys have turned the show into a “political one-sided crapfest” I’m so over it 🙄 so goodbye MuggleCast, it’s been fun- well actually no, it hasn’t. It could’ve been more fun but, what can you do...?
