Join SpeakBeasty 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 Ann, Helene, and Megan as they discuss the challenges of making a film that relies on a story everyone already knows, like a prequel or a historical film. Do you think Fantastic Beasts qualifies as a prequel?
Join hosts Ann, Lizzie S, and Shannen as they discuss continuity in the Fantastic Beasts films. How do you feel about these continuity errors at this point? Are you still feeling furious? Or are you able to laugh them off as time goes on between films? If it is the former, which makes you the angriest?
We discuss the likely experiences of our characters in WWI based on historical context and how bringing magic into the equation could have changed things. How do you think wizards were involved in the war?
“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.
