Welcome to MuggleCast, the weekly Harry Potter podcast and your ride into the Wizarding World! Our show has been podcasting about J.K. Rowling’s creation since 2005. In each new episode we discuss all things Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts.
After recently completing our Chapter by Chapter re-read and analysis, we are now holding a wide variety of discussions about the books, films, and fandom. See our latest discussions in the player above, or on our episodes page.
Thanks to our supporters on Patreon, we’re currently releasing a new episode every week. You can pledge as little as $2/month to help support the show and receive sweet benefits in return!

Join the MuggleCasters for our sixth live trivia event to celebrate Halloween!
In Quizzitch LIVE: Halloween Edition, the hosts of our Harry Potter podcast will be asking multiple choice questions about the spookiest elements of the Harry Potter series, and events that occur on Halloween in the books.
You will receive a maximum of 100 points for correctly answering each question. The faster you answer, the more points you’ll receive.
Like previous Quizzitch LIVE installments, the MuggleCasters will be hosting a live stream as the game is played. If your primary device is a mobile phone, we recommend readying another device to get the full Quizzitch Live experience — one device for watching the stream, and the other for participating in the game.
If your phone has a picture-in-picture mode, you may be able to watch the stream in the corner of your stream while you play the game.
Our live stream will begin at 3 PM ET on Saturday, October 31st, and the game will begin at 3:15 PM ET. Links to the stream and game will be posted on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram (in the bio) shortly before the event begins. This game is open to everyone.
The top five winners will be invited to select a fan-made Harry Potter item on Etsy, up to $50 in value.
To celebrate the start of term at Hogwarts on September 1, in our next episode we will discuss the Professors at the beloved School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! Continue reading →

7 is a magical number in the Harry Potter series, and for a while we’ve been juuust under 777 on our Patreon. This platform has kept the show rocking and rolling over the past couple of years, so we want to hit and surpass 777 Patrons!
To encourage more sign ups, we’re launching the 777 Challenge. If we surpass 777 Patrons by March 31, and hold that number through at least May 2018, here’s what we’ll do over the summer:
- 2-hour live episode filled with call-ins as they come in
- The Holiday movie commentary
- We’ll hold a poll to figure out what our next Harry Potter movie commentary will be — Whichever the winner is, we’ll do it
- Later in the year, all Patrons who pledge $5 or more will receive a new MuggleCast mug for no extra charge. This is for the first 800 $5+ Patrons only (including those who are already pledged). Check out the design below! And yes, you’ll get to select which Hogwarts House color you’ll receive!
Can’t wait til summer or later for benefits? In April, should we hit 777 supporters by March 31, we will host a live video stream on Patreon after the three of us see The Cursed Child on Broadway.
It’s because of listeners like you that MuggleCast is a weekly podcast again. Help us continue to grow by pledging on Patreon today. There’s never been a better time!
For the next month, new episodes of MuggleCast are sponsored by Puffs! And we have a special deal just for MuggleCast listeners. Continue reading →
We have a small number of MuggleCast t-shirts available leftover from our Patreon that we’re now offering to the public! One is a simple Micbolt design while the other was inspired by the Three Brothers.
Shirts cost $22.15 total. Due to shipping costs and available resources, we are only selling these shirts to United States residents. Order here via Etsy!
We have two designs available, and sizes/colors are limited. We hope you find the combination you like!
Act quick — again, availability is very limited and we won’t be reprinting these shirts.
Dear listeners! All three of us (Andrew, Eric, and Micah) will be in New York City this Saturday to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them at Carnegie Hall. If you too are attending the event (which is at 6:00 pm) OR if you will be in the New York area that afternoon, we would love to say hi to you!
Let’s gather in the south west corner of Central Park, by the USS Maine National Monument at 4:00pm! We plan to be there for a hour, but we recommend getting there as close to 4 as possible to make sure we see you.
We’ll see you there!
