Frequently Asked Questions

The following are a list of questions we ALWAYS get from our listeners. So we thought we would answer a few, and give you a little more insight about our program.

What is Hogwarts Radio?

Hogwarts Radio is a Harry Potter podcast dedicated to discussing EVERYTHING that has to do with the series. We have been Rocking and Rowling the airwaves since August 2008. The show is entering it’s 9th full year of podcasting and continues to put out great discussion, and analysis of the Harry Potter books, and films.

What is a podcast?

podcast (or non-streamed webcast) is a series of digital media files (either audio or video) that are released episodically and often downloaded through web syndication.


Basically, it’s a program that you can download and listen to, or take it with you on the go. Think of it as a radio program that you — the listener, have control over when you listen to it.


How often is your show released?

We release a new episode every week! 

How can I listen?

There are many ways you can listen to Hogwarts Radio! One of the most popular methods is by subscribing to our show on iTunes so you can stay up to date with the most recently released episodes. We are also on other on demand entertainment sites such as Stitcher Radio, iHeartRadio, Google Play, Anchor, Audioboom, TuneIn, BluBrry and SoundCloud to name a few.

How can you still talk about Harry Potter even after the all the books are out?

It’s true. There’s no more theorizing about new events after the release of Deathly Hallows. However, there is still tons of news to talk about, stories about the theme parks, conventions, what the actors are doing now, what JK Rowling is up to, and much more! We’ve got the Harry Potter the Exhibition making it’s way around the world, “Making of Harry Potter” attraction already open in the U.K., Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London, NYC, and Australia, and some little 5 film series called "Fantastic Beasts." Trust me. There’s PLENTY to talk about. We keep our show fresh and interesting via our fun segments, and main discussions about anything and everything in the series!

Why isn’t J.K. Rowling on your show?

We would LOVE to have Jo on the show, but we are sure she has better things to do other than sit around and talk about a series she spent a good portion of her life on. She’s hard at work on her "The Corman Strike" series, but should the opportunity arise that we get the chance to speak with her (and that would be AMAZING), we might let you know.

I never get a response to the emails I send to you guys. What gives?!

Rest assured we DO READ ALL OUR EMAILS, but finding time to respond to every single one of them is a full time job in itself. We get tons of emails from listeners inquiring about the show, and responding to a comment we might have said. We do answer many of them, and even read a few on the show each week, however, it’s simply impossible for us to respond to all of them, but your email doesn’t go un-noticed, so keep sending them in!
