MuggleCast is the original Harry Potter podcast. The show launched in August 2005 and quickly gained an audience of over 50,000 listeners a week. Our quick growth told us one thing: Fans love hearing fellow fans talk passionately about Harry Potter.
Over a decade later that still holds true. MuggleCast remains the premiere Harry Potter podcast for fans of the Wizarding World.
MuggleCast discusses the original series, Fantastic Beasts, the theme parks, and many other elements of the thriving fandom. We are proudly supported by our listeners, who each pledge anywhere from $2 – $10 each month on Patreon in exchange for many sweet benefits.
About the Team
– Andrew Sims (he/him) (Host, Producer, Editor) is based in Nevada and began podcasting when he founded MuggleCast in 2005. In addition to full time podcast work and co-hosting #Millennial Podcast with Laura, Andrew created a Patreon online course and Patreon book to help other creators master Patreon. Andrew obsesses over Bruce Springsteen, video games, dogs, and nature. He and his boyfriend Pat co-own a local business, Las Vegas Stock Tank Pools.
– Micah Tannenbaum (he/him) (Host, Producer) is a New York native whose MuggleCast journey began when he reached out to Andrew about recording weekly news segments. It wasn’t long before he was invited to be a regular host on the show. Now, seventeen years later, Micah continues to listen, analyze, and defend Aberforth’s goat. In the Muggle world, Micah trades Quidditch for basketball in his day-to-day job.
– Eric Scull (he/him) (Host, Producer) is originally from Reading, Pennsylvania, and is a lover of popular media, with his hands in several podcast pies. When not co-hosting or editing MuggleCast, editing the bimonthly Improvised Star Trek podcast, or producing the Human Resources advice podcast “HR unConfidential,” Eric enjoys exploring Chicago, where he has lived since 2008.
– Laura Tee (she/her) (Host, Producer) was bitten by the podcasting bug in 2006 when she first joined MuggleCast. Podcasting stuck with her through living abroad in Costa Rica (pura vida, mae) and graduate school in New York City. Outside of MuggleCast, Laura enjoys all things linguistics and hosts the current affairs podcast #Millennial alongside Andrew. She loves her hometown of Atlanta, where she lives with her boyfriend and adorable dog, Canela.
– Chloé Laverson (she/her) (Social Media Manager) is based in Washington, DC, and is originally from sunny San Diego, California. Chloé studied Communications with minors in French and Musical Theatre at the University of Utah. She is also the social media manager for Hillel International, the largest Jewish campus organization in the world, as well as for the MuggleCast team’s other podcast, #Millennial. Outside of being a social media manager, Chloé remains active in her sorority, Pi Beta Phi as an alumna, where she currently serves on the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility Committee advocating for Jewish and LGBTQIA+ sorority women. When Chloé is not creating content, she enjoys dancing, skiing, writing poetry, fashion, and watching the Harry Potter movies in French.
