The Real Weird Sisters are the Best

I was 34 years old when Harry Potter and the Socerer’s Stone was published in the US. I did not read it or any of the subsequent books but my sister who is two years older did. She would gleefully anticipate the release of each new book. About 10 years ago when I was in my 40’s I started watching the movies and fell in love. I’ve seen each movie multiple times and although this is not a popular opinion with you, Martha and Alice, I love Daniel Radcliffe in the role of Harry. I also love Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. It is so nice to see that they have all gone onto successful careers as adults. I have enjoyed The Real Weird Sister’s podcast so much. I always knew that by having only seen the movies I was missing out on a lot of content and more details about the world of Harry Potter. I started listening about 2-3 years ago and have relistened to many episodes. Your banter back and forth as sisters reminds me of the banter I have with my two sisters. I’m in my 50’s now and may be one of your oldest listeners. Keep up the good work and you never know, I may just read the books one day. Thank you for all your hard work and bringing the books alive.

My Favorite Podcast

I’ve been listening to the sisters for the better part of a year now, and I finally caught up! I will miss binge-listening to the podcast, but each episode is so full of detailed discussions, so I’m sure I will go back and give each one a re-listen. Thanks for loving Harry Potter as much as I do!

Best podcast ever!

I absolutely love the Real Weird Sisters! Listening to this podcast makes me so happy. Every time I listen I find myself laughing out loud and smiling ear to ear. I often listen while swimming and literally laugh out loud under water! Alice and Martha, you both are hilarious and brighten the lives of so many Harry Potter fans. Getting to experience the Harry Potter universe with you both is a true treat. Thank you so much!

Broomstick Servicing Kit Review

In the muggle world I am an equine veterinarian so I spend a lot of time driving from farm to farm. The Real Weird Sisters have made some long drives more enjoyable! They are very knowledgeable on all things Harry Potter and they have a witty-banter that can easily captivate an audience. Great job Sisters! I would recommend this podcast to all Harry Potter fans, especial those who LOVE MAGIC.

This is an [excellent] audio media

I didn’t realize how much I LOVE this podcast until I recently re-read the series — I kept coming across little kernels of J.K. Rowling’s cleverness and thinking, “I wonder what the weird sisters have to say about this.” Such great commentary. Such goofy character impressions. Thanks for keeping me company during long walks, my morning coffee and that one time I drove across the country. Highly recommend giving this podcast a try!

I am so thankful for these two sisters and their podcast. They are so thoughtful with their detail on everything Harry Potter as well as their silly humor they bring to every episode. I’ll be so upset when the series ends but I plan to have another listen through till the end of time!

Amazing podcast!

I’m always listening to the audio books over and over again and it was nice to discover this amazing podcast.I work in an office setting so it really helps time fly by. I really like the fact that they get so in depth on theories and deeper meanings in the text that I’ve overlooked so many times. Not to mention how hilarious some of their impersonations are! Thank you for this podcast and for the well needed moments of silence for the MVB Hedwig.

Great way to relive the magic of Harry Potter

I just finished re-reading all of the books and re-watching all of the movies. And I find myself missing the Harry Potter universe. This podcast brings me back to that world in a fun way!

The Real Weird Sisters are saving my life! (Literally)

I’ve been listening to Alice and Martha for awhile now while I exercise, sit in traffic, or generally do any task that could be deemed unbearable without them. Well this week I was diagnosed with a mild concussion, which means I’ll be just fine except for the fact that I’m not allowed to watch TV, do any kind of work, socialize with others, or do anything fun at all (what a way to spend Halloween am I right?). Luckily I’ve been laying in the dark with my lavender essential oil diffusing pleasantly listening to a rundown of my favorite book series while I drift in and out of sleep. The Real Weird Sisters have kept me entertained without giving me a headache or overstimulating me and for that I will be forever grateful. Also, I model for life drawing classes and often put an air pod in and listen to episodes to help pass the time. Well sometimes I'll be sitting there nude listening while people are drawing and I’ll just full on bust out laughing at something the sisters have said. I’m sure the artists drawing my face don’t find it funny but I definitely do. Anyway, I should probably wrap this up considering I’m not supposed to be looking at screens while my brain heals. Side note: throughout all the traumatic events that have happened in Harry’s life I wonder how many concussions he’s had. I don’t think the word is ever used specifically but he’s must have had a few at the very least between the Quidditch accidents and all of his fighting evil and whatnot. You ladies are stars. Stay weird!Cheers,JennaPS I’m pursuing a career in dance/musical theater and I love it when you do sorting hat episodes for musicals. Have you done the Rocky Horror Picture Show yet? Not sure if that qualifies as family friendly but I’d love to listen to it.

The best Harry Potter Podcast

I've been trying to find a podcast like this one for so long, and I'm beyond glad I finally did! Listening to the book club episodes reminds me of being ten years old and reading through the series over and over again. You guys helped me remember all of the passages I loved and the random descriptions and bits of dialogue that used to constantly run through my head as a kid! Even your off-topic references hit home for me — for example, "the pizza is breathing!" is something my sisters and I will still quote, somewhat unfortunately, to this day. Thanks for being so detailed and entertaining — I can't wait to keep listening.

Real Weird Sisters X2

I honestly don’t know how to put into words how happy this podcast makes me. I started listening around this time last year and have fallen in love with the show. My sister and I have grown up with the books and love to listen to Alice and Martha on the way to school. We love giggling along with all the jokes, and discovering new things even we haven’t noticed throughout the years. I can’t believe we’re already on the last book, and am dreading the first week we won’t have a chapter breakdown to listen to. Thank you for bringing out all the magic of the Harry Potter world again. The podcast gives me the same feelings I felt reading the series for the first time.

Stay weird

There is so much pressure to write a cute, funny, nice review, but you both deserve the 5 stars so here goes my review..I grew up reading Harry Potter with my dad, it was one of my first “big girl” books I read. It soon became a series that my entire family got hooked on. Martha and Alice when you talk about growing up with the books it brings me right back to my childhood. I’m so glad I found your podcast and have recommended you to my own sister. I love the podcast and stay weird!

Martha and Alice are my best friends!

I found this podcast because my dad listens to a podcast that has mentioned this podcast. I have always loved Harry Potter since my dad read it to me. I just started listening to this podcast like a month ago so I don’t think I’ll ever catch up. I am nine right now and my birthday is the same as Daniel Radcliffe’s so I love Harry Potter even more! I love listening to Alice and Martha talk about everything and I have learned so much more about Harry Potter.When they do the special topics episode’s I don’t listen to them because I don’t watch the shows they talk about. I think all the Harry Potter fans should listen to this podcast.

Love!!

Alice and Martha really capture the essence of the Harry Potter series. I’ve listened to this podcast for a few months now and caught up with their weekly updates. Even though the wait for Monday uploads are agonizing, it does give me something to look forward too. The sisters have inspired me to reread the books along with them and I have rediscovered the love I had the Harry Potter books. This podcast is a breath of fresh air for Potterheads. Fun, inspiring, thoughtful.

I LOVE this podcast!

This is a great podcast! I am a podcast junkie and I immediately began ignoring all of my usual weekly podcasts to binge this show from the very beginning when I first found it over the summer! Now I’m several months in and I’ve listened to all of the book club episodes TWICE each (about to start my third re-listen because I’m going through withdrawals being all caught up!) and most of the special topics shows as well! It’s the first (and only) HP related podcast I’ve listened to, and I love it. Martha and Alice are hilarious, and they make you feel like you’re there with them geeking out about Harry Potter while they go over each chapter of the books! I don’t have any siblings of my own so these two truly feel like kindred spirit sisters to me while I listen!! I love that even though they are total experts on Harry Potter, they don’t take it too seriously and you can always count on some hilarious impressions (thank you, Martha), constant giggling (thank you, Alice) and some awesome breakdown of the series!! I LOVE this podcast! *Harry’s Goblet of Fire movie voice*Love, a fellow Harry Potter fan and cat lover :)

What a Triwizard Treat!

What a surprise! Never expected such a great podcast! Even though I’m still catching up, I love these sisters! My dad listens sometimes with me and laughs at all of Martha’s corny jokes and impressions. (I do too.) I would love to see this be read but the sisters are so popular they get a review every other day! But still, I can’t get enough of them, and no one else can either!!!

Want to Love It

I really want to love this podcast but it’s hard. I LOVE Harry Potter and I love 85% of the discussion, but I find myself hitting skip and skipping section that are just plain dumb (how do House elves procreate?) and over the giggle. The giggle is just too much and makes it so hard for me to get through. I am only on Chamber of Secrets and I guess I don’t find these books to be a hilarious comedy...but it’s too much. I stopped listening for 3 months before trying to listen again. I want to say please tone it down, but the current episodes are on Book 7 so I have little hope. I hope I can make it through but it has been pretty painful.
