Join SpeakBeasty, a MuggleNet.com podcast, as we journey through the Fantastic Beasts saga, leading in-depth discussions which theorize and reflect on the magical world during the interwar era.
Meet The Team
Our episodes are released bi-weekly on Sundays, and recent topics cover everything from whether dementors poop to whether the cultural representation in the series has been adequate, and everything in between!
Join Ariel, Shannen, and guest host Aaron (who you may find familiar) as they discuss the beasts we met in Crimes of Grindelwald and how they could have been better utilized to further the story. Which beasts would you like to see more of in the future?
Join hosts Amy, Lizzie, and Michael, as well as special guest, Mike Schubert of Potterless as they discuss the similarities and differences between Potter and Beasts. Does Fantastic Beasts stand alone as a series? Find out more!
Join Aureo with special guests Marjolaine and Julianna as they discuss a "very Ravenclaw" topic: Beasts vs. Magical Plants! How do you think Beasts should be classified, and what kinds of magical plants would you like to see in future films?
Join hosts Megan, Michael, and Shannen for a discussion on representation of characters of color, as well as whether or not Seraphina was actually drunk the whole time. How can future Fantastic Beasts installments learn from the missteps and lack of representation in previous wizarding world media, and better serve their characters of color?
This time on SpeakBeasty, hosts Lizzie, Ariel, and Shannen discuss whether Queenie is truly evil or whether she (literally) drank the Kool-Aid. Do you think Queenie's character development between films makes sense, or do you think that we are missing information?
“Best podcast in the world. You can feel they love what they talk about and the chemistry between the hosts is amazing. Always looking forward to the new episodes days before.”
“I love the blend of opinions (really makes you think), and taking a bit of time out to listen to people (although they kind of feel like friends now) discuss in depth something that I love is so therapeutic.”
“SpeakBeasty is more than just a podcast. I found a place within this group of lovely hosts and listeners that is full of like-minded, caring people that are so much fun to be with! Definitely worth to support on Patreon and become an actual part of the discussions and make new friends that are just as nerdy as you are!”
“You can have in depth, smart and passionate conversation without taking yourself too seriously. SpeakBeasty is the best example of that! As listeners, we feel welcome in a safe place with a lovely group of hosts where everyone is just like Newt: curious, open to the world and lovingly quirky.”
There’s nothing we love more than meeting up and discussing all things Newt with our Beasties! Below are details on where you can find us next.
