One thing that will always be true: I could always use more Harry Potter in my life. And what better way to stay connected with The Boy Who Lived than with a Harry Potter podcast?

One of my favorite things about Harry Potter is its massive, diverse, and, above all, enthusiastic fandom. So many cool and different ideas are coming out of the Potterverse daily, and there's always a new way to explore the series. Which of course, includes the world of podcasting. There are tons of Harry Potter podcasts out there, and each one has its own unique experience to offer.

There is so much to talk about when it comes to Harry Potter. And if you're like me, you're always eager to spin fan theories, soak up new ideas, and rattle off your favorite wizarding in-jokes. Even if your IRL friends and family are sick to death of you talking their ear off about Harry Potter, you can surely find like-minds (and get your daily Potter fix) by tuning into a podcast.

With the magic of podcasts, your life can be all Harry Potter, all the time. (A dream come true!) So grab your headphones and get ready to eat up these fantastic podcasts that every Harry Potter fan will adore.


Harry Potter and the Sacred Text

What if we studied Harry Potter in the same way that we studied religion? That's the premise of Harry Potter and the Sacred Text. In this compelling podcast, they close-read Harry Potter as though it were a religious text.



Everyone knows that one of the best parts of the Harry Potter phenomenon is Harry Potter fanfiction. In Potterotica, actors read out-of-this-world HP fanfics, and their performances are amazing.

Imaginary Worlds

Imaginary Worlds isn't strictly about Harry Potter, but if you're a fan of fantasy worlds, you'll love it. This podcast explores fantasy, sci-fi, and other fictional universes — and yes, there's more than one episode about our favorite boy wizard.


Unspoiled: Harry Potter

Unspoiled puts a fun twist on the reread podcast genre. One of the hosts has read all the books and seen all the movies, while the other knows absolutely nothing. As they read/reread the book one chapter at a time, they have some truly delightful conversations.



Pottercast has been going for 11 years, and it's your one-stop-shop for "discussion, celebration, and interviews with creators and actors from the Harry Potter Universe."



This popular Mugglenet-produced podcast was created "to fill the void left in the aftermath of the final Harry Potter movie release." Alohomora! will get every Harry Potter nerd excited.

With The Weird Sisters podcast, reread the series alongside a pair of sisters as they talk about what makes the books so special.


Yer a Wizard, Harry

In Yer a Wizard Harry, join three friends as they reread the series. A fun romp through the world of Harry Potter that will have you smiling the whole way through.


Mischief Managed

Mischief Managed exploration of the Harry Potter universe. As they put it, the podcast is "less of a deep dive and more like an erratic day at the water park."


The Girls Who Lived

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Bustle's own Harry Potter podcast, The Girls Who Lived, hosted by Books Editor Cristina Arreola and Associate Web Culture Editor Emma Lord. Tune in for interviews with Harry Potter influencers, authors, and more.
