Reviews For PotterCast: The Harry Potter podcast since 2005

I have been listening to Pottercast for years,as well as Mugglecasts. I find their views very interesting it always leaves me with a different way of looking at the Harry Potter fandom of Stories differently than i had before,i give Pottercast five stars because a lot of thought is put into their podcasts and its a fandom of friendships opinion unlike others aren’t judgmental by them,i found they are always open to hearing others opinions ,Pottercast and LeakyCon do a lot and deserve a much better rating and review. It doesn’t change another’s opinion on a subject it makes it more interesting and there isn’t anything wrong with hearing others although ive seen it when it comes to fandoms some are not interested in another’s view only their own but it doesn’t change mine and im open to hearing other opinions thats what i love mostly about panels and Harry Potter podcasts. They are big time fans and love the fandom just as much ,we are all part of the same fandom and they are excellent.
I’ve been a fan of the podcast since episode 1. And through that I’ve seen it grow from a podcast on a series of books to something more profound and important. They are truly a voice of sanity and heart in a sometimes cruel world.
Bad podcast. Listen to mugglecast or fantastic geeks and where to find them, as alternative HP podcasts
If you enjoy divisive leftist idnetity politics. This is for you.
Rowling just needs to keep her mouth shut on certain things. She also needs to quit apologizing for killing characters and quit changing established canon.
Amazing podcast
It’s not like I thought it was like.🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️
Hi guys! I’m listening to the latest episode and I’m screaming at my phone! Now, please note, I think the only reason this information is so crystal clear is because I’m re-reading Prisoner right now! BUT! When Hagrid tells the story about when he went to get Harry (on Dumbledores orders) Sirius showed up and argues with Hagrid over being Harry’s Godfather and being the one who should take him. Eventually Hagrid wins by drilling “Dumbledore’s orders” into Sirius’ head. So he did check on him. It’s just not told to us til halfway through Book 3. Anyway! Love you guys and the Podcast.
This show is an old fave and on a whim I decided to see if it was still active. I picked an episode from about a year ago and dove right back in. I was instantly transported back to 2005 on my college campus, when I listened faithfully to the very first episodes of pottercast. This was a time you received a quizzical look when you said the word podcast. Thank you, thank you to Melissa, John, and Frak for bringing a little more joy into my everyday. I know what I’ll be bingeing for the rest of the summer.
I think this podcast is good but i think it is trying a little too hard to be “trendy” I think it could use some work a little more comedy I would recommend fantastic geeks if you ask me
One of the very first podcasts I ever followed along with. And it’s still just as fun after all this time. The analysis is great and the debates span all sorts of opinions. Definitely worth listening to as an old fan or diving into as a newbie to the geeky podcast world or the ever expanding HP universe. There’s still so much to discuss & Pottercast is willing to analyze it all!
He this is a good podcast boiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
It is very interesting and informative. Also it’s way way better then any other Harry Potter Podcast especially Hero Talk With Talex and Trev
I expected much more. If you like Harry Potter, listen to mugglecast. It is much better.
for dome reason this episode isnt playing. PLEASE FIX!!!
Other Potter podcasts can review the films without spending half the time on their own political views, go elsewhere
As someone who lives and dies by the HP world. I needed a place where I could listen to HP while doing homework. This podcast is perfection! I love hearing about theories and discussing new trailers and movies, as well as diving back into older things. I’m just glad I found a place where people are just as excited about HP as I am!
Before I would have rated this 4 or 5, but brought it down to 3 because of all cringy virtue signally “woke” politics that comes up unnecessarily. Totally takes me out of it. A HP podcast should be a sanctuary from all the constant politics going on in the world haha. The rest of the content is great though. Keep up the good work.
They can’t seem to go a single episode anymore without fighting over something absurdly petty. You’re talking about Harry Potter for god’s sake, chill out.
Was so good ...until they decided to bad talk Johnny depp.... entire episode... and not just talk about content .. I respect there choices on him I know it and don’t need to keep hearing about it
The theme music is awesome still going around in my head.


Really! So much talking I skipped to See if there was any more talking and I found talking but I didn’t hear much stuff about Harry Potter
A timeless classic. Loved growing up with these guys.
This is, by far, the best HP podcast. Keep up the good work!!!
I think you guys have such chemistry on this podcast, you guys are so awesome

it would be quite appreciative if you can please not bash people. i mean, just saying you do not like a character is enough. but going on for 30 minuets. just calm down please.
I’ve given a couple of podcasts a listen and I can only muster halfway thru the podcast before turning it off. Do you routinely talk and shout over one another? You can’t possibly believe this makes for easily listening. I can watch “the View” if I wanted to hear a bunch of cackling.
I've been listening since before Deathly Hallows came out. Although I wish they would produce episodes more frequently, this was the first podcast I started listening to. I absolutely love it and would recommend it to any Potter fan.


They have interviews with cast members, just good content, and it’s age appropriate for anyone about 7 and older!
Sometimes... It sounds like the cast of Scooby-Doo sitting around talking about Potter stuff. It used to be a bit more structured... professional. It's fun. Its just... at the end of each podcast I ask myself, "What was that all about?"... Oh... Please stay away from politics. One could make a Potter comparisons to any political party (good and bad). Heck... I still think it possible that Umbrige and Voldemort were running against each other (polyjuice). Hard to know which would be worse.
I am a Harry Potter fanatic. I have read the books multiple times, watched the movies too many times, and know more than I should about a fictional universe. That being said I love listening to the podcast and being able to listen to a first time reader delve into it all. Do I agree with all of his opinions? No. But I do get some great laughs. If you are looking to relive reading these books... yet as an adult this is the podcast for you.
I only discovered this podcast about a week ago and am obsessed. I've always loved the Harry Potter movies and have read a few of the books but this podcast has inspired me to go back a reread the series in full! I love the work you guys are doing and find all your fights and discussions beyond entertaining.
I started listening to this show in 2008 (and haven't stopped since then), which was after the last Potter book was published, so I missed out on all of the theorizing and anticipation that happened between books. I did go back and listen to older episodes, which clued me in on all of the fun that I had missed in the years before that, but I was jealous that I missed out on all the excitement! Now that we're in this time between "Fantastic Beasts" films, I'm hoping this podcast will continue to be the amazing place for fans to listen and get their geeky fandom fix! I've loved all of the discussion and theorizing from the hosts about future films since the first "Beasts" film, keep up the fantastic work!
I've been listening to Pottercast since the beginnng and have never written a review! It's time. Pottercast has always been important to my life but 5 years ago, I moved to the mountains in Puerto Rico to start a sustainable farm with my partner to not only grow food but medicinal herbs for my (very small) business; creating tinctures & potions makes me feel like a real-life witch and I LOVE IT. Anyway, my point is, in my somewhat isolated location, Pottercast fills my heart with so much warmth and gives me the potter-obsessed friends that I never had, making me feel a little less lonely; there's nothing like talking to someone about Potter who also KNOWS potter. I can't tell you how much joy it brings me to hear them discuss things I've already thought of myself, feeling like I am actually there in the room having these conversations with them, diving into details. I'm so excited for future conversations about Fantastic Beasts & whatever else the fandom brings. So, from a little corner of the world, on a little island in the Carribbean, I just wanted you to know that Pottercast plays in the background as I craft herbal medicine to heal my community. THANK YOU for the laughter, for your good energy, and for your commitment, always. xo: Megan
I started listening to Potterless because my sister told me about it. I am an adult who loves Harry Potter and this podcast has me laughing all the time. It's so good. There are so many things that I didn't catch when I was younger and it great. I've already recommends it to several of my friends.
The way she laid into Frak for saying JK was being aggressive was just malicious. She used that situation to bring in the fact that she is a feminist and anti-trump. Frak has no ill intention bone in his body. Look, I don't like trump and I believe in woman's equality in the work place and beyond, but the way she went after Frak was malicious and down right mean. She could have been so much nicer about and presented feminism in a way that doesn't support the notion that feminists are just angry women trying to find any little thing to turn on men. I really expected better out of Melissa.
Takes me back to 2007. So much fun to have you guys back on the air!
I have been a fan of Pottercast since the beginning back when Half Blood Prince had just been release. This podcast was actually my very first foray into the podcast world and I loved it! It was always filled with great discussions about the series and world that we all love. But ever since they have returned after "ending" the show it has been a mess. It's been very disorganized and just sort of a jumble of random topics. I miss the great Potter discussion they used to have. I am truly disappointed in how negative the podcast has become in recent episodes. I know there is a lot of negativity in the world and discussions of politics are everywhere right now, but I don't come to my Harry Potter podcast for them. In the two most recent episodes especially Melissa has taken large chunks of time to just go off angrily about politics or feminism. I am not saying I don't agree with her views, I just don't think a Harry Potter podcast is the place for them. No one (and I mean no one) comes to Pottercast for that. I truly cannot deal with the negativity and anger that seem to be a major part of Pottercast now. I am sad to be hitting the unsubscribe button after over a decade of diligent listening.
I tried, I really did. I used to listen to them way back when, and they got pretty annoying. I came back after Christmas and thought maybe they had gotten better. Nope, if you want to listen to people argue and interrupt each other and not listen to what the others are saying, this podcast is for you. If you want to listen to political rantings every time you tune it, it's all yours. Heaven help you if you do are not March stepping right in line with their ideals. I am done. Too many podcasts that discus things I enjoy, like Fantastic Beast, and the original HP.
No other potter podcast has had the great JKR take the reigns and give an interview away. You should listen. More editing is required. They are so informed that sometimes they ramble with info I'm not familiar with, but I want to be where they are at. If they gave the background it would be great to hear that specificity. they are regularly killing the game. They are fun when they debate you can tell they are passionate this is like their bible. I want to say thank you so much for the episode in which your hostess with the most told the truth about tolerating hate. We tolerate people we don't tolerate hate. Thanks for your bravery. I'm sure you won't loose listeners but if you do thanks for speaking the truth.
I've been listening to this podcast for 7 years, and every episode is fantastic fun. The chemistry and the humor among the hosts, the news, the theories, the insights, and the genuine enthusiasm puts this podcast high above other Harry Potter podcasts. Bring J.K. Rowling back on for another episode!
Absolutely the best podcast to listen to if you love Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World! I've been going though the old episodes and it's so much fun. Keep up the great work!
Thank you John, Melissa, Frack and Zack for providing the only in depth conversation about Harry and his world! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
So, I have insomnia, and so every night I struggle. However, that was before I discovered this podcast. Now I listen to it before I go to bed every night and can find a way to smile and laugh and be happy about something. Thank you! Keep going! I'm a big fan of this podcast and love it so much! I'm pretty sure I even remember hearing I live by one of you guys and got so excited and happy to know that I'm not so far away from everything!
With all the new stuff happening in the Potterverse, it's great to have the old crew back (well, some of them, plus some new additions) to keep us all up to date.


Hilarious and enlightening to listen to!
I’ve been listening to Pottercast since 2006!!!! I’m so glad they’ve come back, it feels like hearing old friends again :) Please keep up the great work! P.S. when is Jo coming back on the show? ;)

I look forward to each new episode and really enjoy listening.
