Potterless is a magical journey following Mike Schubert, a 25-year-old 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 rant about how Quidditch is the worst sport ever invented. With his podcastic voice, uncanny sense of humor, uniquely sharp mind, and arsenal of witty and insightful guests, Mike 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."
Mike is one of the most charismatic hosts in podcasting, with a feel-good perspective and huge personality. His ad reads are so entertaining that listeners post clips to Twitter and Instagram, and go out of their way to promote and buy sponsors' products.
About the Host
Host Name: Mike Schubert
Mike is the host, editor, and producer of Potterless as-well as a host and producer of HORSE. Mike says, "I pride myself on the quality of ad reads I produce for Potterless, and honestly, some of my best jokes are in my advertisements. I firmly believe that if a podcast is funny and enjoyable, any advertisements in the show should be as well. My dedication towards making my ad reads entertaining while still being clear and concise pays off because listeners have no reason to skip the advertisements. I also ensure that I actually stand behind the products I'm advertising and give honest testimonials about why I love the product I am selling. Combining the benefits of comedic ad reads that keep listeners engaged with genuine explanations of why I support the sponsor's product or service makes ad reads on Potterless incredibly effective." When not working on podcasts, Mike can be found performing improv comedy cooking new recipes, and playing basketball.
