Potterless is a magical journey following Mike Schubert, a grown man reading the Harry Potter series for the first time, as he sits down with Harry Potter fanatics to poke fun at plot holes, make painfully incorrect predictions, and bask in the sassiness of the characters. With his energetic sense of humor and arsenal of witty and insightful guests, Schubert will take you on a journey through your childhood, this time with the rose-tinted glasses off. People are calling Potterless "hilarious and engaging," "down-to-earth magic," and "like watching a baby learn to walk." Potterless has been named Podcast of the Year in 2019 and 2020 by Celeb Mix, it has been featured on BuzzFeed and ScreenRant, and consistently ranked as a top comedy podcast in Apple's and Spotify's charts. When weekly, Potterless was the most popular Harry Potter podcast. Potterless has been downloaded over 82,000,000 times and has over 600,000 subscribers across all podcasting platforms.

Mike Schubert, Potterless Podcast host

Host Mike Schubert is a grown man who had never read Harry Potter - making him the perfect host for this podcast about a grown man who had never read Harry Potter! He started Potterless while working as a mechanical engineer full time, and thankfully, the podcast grew large enough where it became his full-time job in July 2019. People have called Schubert "an effortlessly comedic host" and "the Lee Jordan of the real world."


Mike Schubert is the most Gryffindor one can legally be, his Patronus is a fox, and if he could be any character from Harry Potter he would be a blast ended skrewt. When he's not reading Harry Potter or talking about Harry Potter, he's playing basketball, performing improv, spending time with his wife (who is the reason this podcast exists!), or sleeping through his alarms. 

Mike's other podcasts include The Newest Olympian, a Percy Jackson podcast, Meddling Adults, a game show for charity, HORSE, a basketball podcast about hoops history and drama, and Modern Muckraker, a comedic investigative journalism podcast.
