    While looking for more Harry Potter podcasts to explore I came upon Snapecast. Snapecast has now become my favorite Harry Potter cast and please keep up the great work!

    Finally, a Harry Potter-related podcast for grown-ups! Fabulous!

    Yes! Finally a new episode! *devoted fan*
    I just wanted to say that I love snapecast, its hilarious and great (and Severus is my favourite character).
    You all do a very good job!

    I was so happy that you put Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” on there. Whenever I think of Snape that song starts playing in my mind. That song at the end was hilarious also. My family thought I was going insane I was laughing so hard. I am also going to read Rebecca Webb’s fics now. They sound so good.


    So glad you enjoyed the song. We’re lucky to have some master filkers on staff. I also hope you enjoy Rebecca Webb’s fics as much as I did. She’s a fabulous storyteller.

    Hey Snapecast! Thanks for reading a snippet of my letter in the Owl Post segment! It was four in the morning and I woke the whole house with my shriek of glee. It was humorous.. for me.

    Again, great episode! I’m going to go read Rebecca Webb’s fics now! They sound so interesting. Thanks again, Snapecast!


    Thanks for sending us your e-mail to read on air. We enjoy getting thoughtful comments from listeners.

    Oooh! I loved Episode 5! Especially the song at the end — and the Dolores Howler! It rocked! ^_________^

    All my love,

    I hope you decide to include “Don’t Stand So Close To Me” by Sting and The Plocie on one of your podcasts. It is The song for Hermione-Snape fans, or any student-teacher relationship in fanfiction really… Love the choice of songs, love Chris’s voice (I’ve seperated his voice clips into a collage so I can listen to his pieces over and over again without talking in between!), love the professionalism of the show, love the quality of podcasting, obviously love the topic, and just love the podcast in itself! Keep up the great work!

    Oh, Snapecast, I love you. Much more than onions.

    You wouldn’t consider spoiling your listeners by putting out bi-monthly podcasts, would you?

    I just got done listening to Eppy 5…I LOVED it!

    The song at the end was brill!

    In responce to a comment I heard (Can’t remember which eppy though) about Snape not being paired with Hufflepuffs that often. My friend is in the process of writing a wonderful fic where it centers around three friends who are Hufflepuff students and one of them (Naja Engle) is dating Severus. It’s an AU fic that takes place during 6th year (but she kept in Severus killing Dumbledore) but it’s really great and semi well-written…she has a problem with spelling, so forgive her.

    If you are interested, just e-mail me and I’ll send you a link to the fic.

    FINALLY had enough time to get caught up (somewhat) on the Snapecasts.

    I LOVE the parody “Teacher” and the singers were quite good, too. I wish I had the time and energy to put into such an enterprise. I’m sure that having co-conspirators helps the creative juices along.

    Rebecca Webb is one of my favorites, and I appreciate the insightful interview withthat talented writer.

    All the casts are fabulous–what more could I say?
