About Us

It's Tea Time at Hogwarts. Each episode, special guests join stand up comedian and actor Katie Johantgen (The Office Musical, Friends the Musical), to spill the tea on their biggest gripes with the beloved Harry Potter universe. Do you think Michael Gambon was a trash Dumbledore? That Snape is a queer icon and his last-minute romantic infatuation with Lily Potter is lazy writing? That J.K. Rowling is a TERF monster who needs to be stopped?! Listen to what happens when you force someone to talk smack about the thing they love most. No one is safe, not even Dobby.
