MuggleCast: the Harry Potter podcast

Reviews For MuggleCast: the Harry Potter podcast

Wonderful hosts, in depth discussion, they can always dive deeper into a topic! Brightens my week. I also think it’s great that they bring on listeners/patrons from time to time. (I personally don’t think they involve politics to an unnecessary extent as I’ve seen in other reviews. It’s relevant. Sorry if you don’t like it. )
It was so easy to listen because you don’t need any context for other episodes to understand what they are saying. I would recommend this podcast to anyone 10+. These people are amazing! I would not recommend any other HP podcast than this one!! Although, you seriously need to cut the politics. Laura, you can do better then that! I am just amazed at how detailed they are but not too detailed to make it boring. This podcast warms my heart. I love you guys!! Keep up the good work Muggles!!❤️
I love this podcast but stopped listening because it had too many bad words and I was only 10 at the time, but other than that I think that it’s a great podcast. I’m 11 now. 🤬😉
Laura just can’t help herself... And then the guys feel like they need to go down these political rabbit holes with her. Cut Laura, cut the politics, and bring back that awesome Australian chick slug club member from a few episodes ago. She would make a great female host!
It is nice to hear people who love HP as much as I do.
Watch it boiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
You guys are losing me with all the political opinions and social justice warrior comments. Just trying to hear about Harry Potter
I looked forward to listening each week and was going to contribute to patron but now I struggle to finish the episodes. I enjoyed the original three guys!
I have most likely watched the movie at least 30 times and totally ruined one of my copies of the original screenplay, writing notes and such. This episode is great and I may start another one soon. My favorite part of the movie though, is ALL of it, hasn’t gotten old for me since the day it came in theater. Sorry I know I haven’t said much about the episode😊
Been a fan since 2009! Love this podcast! However, the new female host is pretty horrible. Prepare yourself in the new episodes to spend all your time wondering how the show veered off course into a 20 minute conversation about how politically incorrect each JK Rowling character is or isn’t. It’s a dang children’s book! I really enjoyed listening to this on my drive or while walking with my baby but now the show has really gone down hill.
This was the first podcast I ever listened to and it is amazing. The hosts sometimes forget things from the books, but hey, they’re only human. If you’re looking at this for a child, it’s appropriate, however the hosts sometimes make dirty jokes. In terms of language it’s between a Marvel movie and a Star Wars movie.
I was a long time listener of the podcast and loved the Harry Potter discussions and news, but after #404 I have decided to stop listening. Laura especially turned a chapter by chapter discussion into a full blown political platform to push the liberal opinion. Assuming that President Trump and his supporters were comparable to Voldemort was ridiculous. I used to love the podcast but now I cannot stand it. I feel like you guys should have realized that you had listeners of multiple different religions and political affiliations, but it seems like you don’t care. Especially when Laura made a snide remark about homeschooled kids being taught about Angels. As a Christian I took great offense to that and will not be listening or recommending this podcast to anyone. #MAGA 🇺🇸
I used to listen to Mugglecast pretty often, but then got busy with life. I just picked it back up this past month with the hope to reignite my love of listening to HP discussions while driving. However, it seems to have changed a lot... they just can't seem to stop bringing in politics and pushing a their own agenda. I don't care if you're liberal or conservative, most people listen to HP to get away from real life and to hark back to childhood. I'll be unsubscribing and picking up a different HP podcast. It's just such a bummer because this podcast used to be so awesome.
There’s nothing more pleasant after a long day of work than listening to the next MuggleCast! The people speaking are so funny and really enjoyable to listen to. I 100 percent recommend this podcast.
This podcast not only relit the flame and love I have for Harry Potter but also got me hooked on podcasts in general as a form of entertainment. Each episode has a good mix of book analysis, news and current events related to the Wizarding world, and trivia. If you love Harry Potter this podcast is for you!
I tuned in to hear Harry Potter stuff. Come on , why Trump bash? Didn’t know this was a political show. Guess I’ll unsubscribe.
If you’re a Harry Potter fan, this podcast is a must. The hosts are always on top of the latest news and have intriguing discussions. They release content regularly and involve their listeners. If you love the wizarding world, it’s worth giving a listen to.
have these people even read the books? they act as though they are huge HP fans yet spout off anecdotes that have never been included in the series and they mix up the books so often and it's so frustrating. these books are not hard to read in the slightest and i, a full time busy student who has a job can manage to read/listen to the books at least once a year and keep up with my knowledge. they are also quite misogynistic. they think that because they are gay and brought a woman back to the show that they are diverse, but it does not work like that. they are rude to fans and cannot keep a simple series straight. this podcast is straight-up disrespectful to fans who have actually read the series more than once and who actually know the content. if you want a HP podcast that is actually good, i'd recommend HP and the sacred text. so incredible and enlightening. unlike this trainwreck
This podcast turns my boring commute into a fun and endearing one. Eric single?
This is my first ever podcast and it’s awesome! Muggle Net for life!!!
Unfortunately over the last couple months this podcast has started spending more time on each episode bashing Trump and our current administration, sadly this kind of conversation zaps the fun out of the podcast and makes me want to stop tuning in. I have enjoyed this podcast greatly for the last year and would love to continue doing so. However I don't think the podcast should bash any public figure no matter their personal or political standing. I personally tune into this podcast because of my love of the Potter universe and hope to be able to enjoy and hear other people talk about that topic.
This is first ever podcast I listened to back in 2009 and stuck with it till it ended. Just restarted listening now that it’s back last spring. I feel like I’ve grown up with 3 buds. Was pumped when Laura came back but she’s been a huuuge bummer. Seems like she’s trying to hard to relate everything to political spectrum now and it takes away from the show. Again. This is one of my favorite podcasts ever but still. Chill...
Not to name names, but Mugglecast is by far the best HP podcast I’ve listened to. Due to the nature of the Wizarding World there are some weeks of absolutely no news, but the personalities of the hosts will keep you coming back for more. I love these guys (and the new gal!)
Fantastic podcast 95% of the time. Love your guys insights and thought-provoking theories/ideas. Harry Potter was and is a very special part of my life. I do however wish the political opinions could be left out of the podcast. Harry Potter is for everyone, including conservatives, and I just don’t appreciate the very blatant bashing of a group of people or certain comparisons being made that are often invalid. Review Updates: I spoke too soon after that comment at the beginning of the show. I certainly understand the need to compare to current and historical situations when talking about the ministry, but there are comparisons that are unwarranted. The only autocrat in the news today is in Venezuela. But more importantly what I’m saying is conservatives, even those who wouldn’t list Trump as their first choice, like me, like the idea of escaping to a magical world and I work in that world and just don’t want to hear about it off the hill lol. Thank you for addressing my review and Go Gryffindor! Thanks!!
Every time I listen to this podcast I feel like I’m transported right back to Hogwarts. Everyone brings so much insight into the old books I love so much. There’s nothing better than that.
If you've ever wanted to listen to in-depth discussions about how Hogwarts worked before plumbing...or how Pottery Barn Teen isn't just for teens...or, of course, who the hell is watching Jacob's bakery...listen to every single episode.
I discovered this podcast in 2008 when the 7th book was about to be released, and I was finishing my undergrad degree. 10 years later I’ve rediscovered it, while finishing my PhD, and enjoy how much the hosts have grown. It’s a smart podcast and I appreciate how much the hosts connect the books with our current events/moment.
Sad that a podcast dedicated to a series, which touts acceptance and inclusion, should make me (a devoted Potter fan, AND conservative) feel unwelcome, and an object of ridicule. I’ve listened for years but can’t take the underhanded, snide comments, from the hosts anymore. The latest episode lost me, a couple minutes in. Ironic that the most outspoken voices for “tolerance”, seem to always be the most intolerant. With much regret, and hope for acceptance. ~ an UNSUBSCRIBED deplorable.
I have listened to this podcast off and on from the very beginning. I keep coming back hoping they will stop bringing politics into it, but they are managing it every episode. I'm sorry I just want some entertaining Potter news, not a constant liberal slant on everything. I even contributed on Patrion, but I think I have had enough. They can still give good insight into movies or what JK is not doing on Twitter but not enough to keep me around.
See, I love this podcast and I think it's great, but there's one major problem. WE ARENT MUGGLES!!😂
Must listen for ALL Harry Potter fans
I love this podcast and look forward to it every week! They are hilarious and they make you feel like a part of their group! Mugglecast forever!!!
The best podcast and my favorite one too! They make Monday after work magical 🧙🏻‍♀️ #mischiefmanaged
I have been listening since it began and it just gets better and better. If you want to laugh, cry and few joy then listen to this podcast!
Very well organized, great personalities that come through, and SUPER knowledgeable about all things wizarding world - they do any research they don't already know and engage with listeners. AWESOME!!
I’m a new Harry Potter fan that only 1st watched the movie a few months ago. I’m now working my way through the novels and really enjoying it all. I’ve seen both Fantastic Beasts and throughly enjoy them also. I found this podcast about two months ago and started to listen so I can get more involved in the fandom. The problem is this podcast is very negative along with whoever runs their Twitter account. I’m old enough to vividly remember the attacks on George Lucas during the prequels and I’m getting the same feelings here. There’s nothing wrong being critical of something you love but attacking the creator for ruining it is really a line that shouldn’t be crossed lightly. For me if I stop getting enjoyment from something I step away and find something new to enjoy. I don’t stick around to spread negativity. That’s just my personal feelings.
They are a must listen for any Harry Potter fan intrigued, inspired and amazed with how good they are.🤤
The best thing about this podcast is that the hosts take this seriously, but not to the point that it feels like a fanatical podcast. When I listen to this, I feel like I’m talking with my good friends about the HP universe. The podcast is laid back, fun, entertaining and insightful. I look forward to it every week!
I’ve been an active listener for quite some time. Occasionally, I’ll just forget to listen for a few weeks, and then binge hard. These guys are funny, interesting, and have great content. They open up many theories and ideas about the Harry Potter world that I wouldn’t think of on my own, which is exactly what I need when I pondering ideas about these stories. I love how much research is done and how there are no silly theories because you never know with this world! With the Fantastic Beasts movies coming out, I’m pondering all over again like I used to when the Harry Potter books were released and anxiously waited for the next. I’m so glad these guys are still around. Keep on recording!
I started reading transcipts and listening to MuggleCast when I was about to turn 13 years old. I'm now 26, and I still love listening to MuggleCast. Even though the books have ended, the fandom definitely has not died. Fantastic Beasts, rereads, Cursed Child - there is still so much to talk about. Andrew, Eric, and Micah are like my friends who talk Harry Potter. Not many people appreciate HP as much as me in my life, so it's great to tune into a weekly podcast with other HP fans. These guys were the pioneers for the Harry Potter podcasts. Always. <3
Love you guys but honestly I totally disagree about your review of Fantastic Beasts Crimes of Grindewald! Rowling is so iconic in the way she leaves us with more mysteries and the way she eventually ties everything together and I think that was the best part of this movie. She created so many mysteries that she is later going to solve for us and it makes me all the more excited for the next movies
Original Review (5 stars): This is the BEST podcast ever!!! I listen every week and you should, too. If you have read the books, and have theories about the seventh book this is a great source of entertainment! You have to listen to this Podcast!! Updated review: This show was once pretty family friendly and interesting to listen to. Recently, the show hasn’t been as interesting and the show has taken a more adult turn. I feel like they don’t have much new content.
Love this podcast keep it goingP.S. My patrons is a stoat too!
Listened since 2007 and it’s just great. Funny and somehow they find actually interesting things to talk about
I use this podcast to listen to whenever I want to get the latest Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts news, along with interesting debates and conversations. I think it’s great, and one of the best I’ve come across so far. 😀 Keep it up!
Fantastic podcast! Been listening since 2005. The hosts are lovable and fun. Different theories are discussed in depth. They love listening to voicemails and emails from listeners. If you love anything and everything about Harry Potter and the wizarding world, do yourself a favor and LISTEN!
I’ve been listening for a year now. Wouldn’t miss it. I tried some others but Mugglecast is the best.
I've been listening to this podcast on and off since the start, 13 yrs ago. Hands down, this is podcast provides consistently great HP content. The best part? Getting an hour + every week hearing such good friends chat about and analyze Harry Potter, with such sensitivity to what's going on currently in the world. Thank you guys for all you do! #untiltheveryend
