what is Potterless?


Mike Schubert never read the Harry Potter series as a kid (what a little hipster). In 2016, he started reading them as an adult and documented his journey through his podcast, Potterless. Each week, Mike is joined by a different Harry Potter fanatic to cover a different part of the series. Currently, Mike has ventured beyond the books into other Potter material such as A Very Potter Musical, Puffs, and more. You can listen on Spotify, Apple, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Potterless has amassed over 50,000,000 downloads, has been featured on BuzzFeed multiple times, and went back-to-back to win CelebMix's Best Podcast award in 2019 and 2020. 

Potterless has had main stage shows at multiple LeakyCons, as well as other podcasting conventions. North American and European Potterless live shows were planned for 2020, but then... you know. Hopefully these events will take place again when the world is a little safer.

Each month, a portion of the show's support from Patreon is donated to a different charity. So far, over $25,000 dollars has been donated!
