Ever since Harry Potter and his friends exploded onto the scene years ago, people can’t get enough. Those who read or watched it (or both!), were instantly obsessed with the magical adventures and fantastical characters. If you’re one of those people, there’s no doubt that you crave more Harry Potter in your life. So here’s some awesome Harry Potter themed podcasts that will enchant and delight.
This weekly podcast is great for casual listening. It feels like having a conversation with other Potterheads and explores topics around most of J.K. Rowling’s creations. The podcast even involves reading the books chapter by chapter and discussing them, like book clubs but with way more magic.
Unspoiled: Harry Potter
It isn’t necessary to be a superfan for this podcast, which makes for totally easy-to-get-into listening. This podcast has a twist. One host is incredibly knowledgeable on the subject of Harry Potter and the other has never heard it. That way the listener gets two takes: the first is one of a huge fan and the second is a completely fresh take on the beloved wizard and his friends. When they read through the books, they discuss the chapters using these contrasting perspectives.
“Alohomora! was crafted to fill the void left in the aftermath of the final Harry Potter movie release” according to its website. It is run by the popular site Mugglenet and it is especially great for making friends with fellow Potterheads. Listen and comment on the podcast in the companion section and soon you’ll be connecting with other fans.
This podcast includes adult fun for fans wanting to feel the nostalgia of their childhoods. This means that they use mature language and discuss topics that you may not have thought of as a child while reading the books for the first time. They also discuss “the books, movies, and all things J.K. Rowling”.
Yer A Wizard Harry
The name itself suggests a tongue-in-cheek, fun podcast and that’s exactly what it is. Think of three great friends talking about the subject they love – Harry Potter. No serious business here, just chatting and laughing through the books.
Harry Potter and the Sacred Text
Want a close read of the books? Well, look no further. Harry Potter and the Sacred Text is based on the idea that studying things closely will reveal more about the Harry Potter world than we even knew existed. The podcast basically asks the question ‘what if we read Harry Potter like we read religious texts?’. Give it a listen to get the answer.
Not every story about Harry Potter has to be written by J.K. Rowling. This podcast, with more adult themes, explores different romantic relationships that could occur in the magical world that Rowling created. No more wondering what could have happened. This podcast will tell you using the art of fanfiction. Explore the idea of any pairing you can imagine.
From the Philosopher’s Stone to The Deathly Hallows, the Harry Potter series will always hold a special place in our hearts. The world is your oyster with these podcasts whether you want to reread the books or just generally talk about them. As Hagrid once said, “I am what I am an’ I’m not ashamed”. So be the best fan you can be and shamelessly enjoy some Potter fun!
