I love this!!


I was introduced to this podcast by my brother, and when he told me it was a Harry Potter fanfic I immediately grimaced, as I had always been disappointed with the cliched motifs, lack of deep character development, and sub-par world building of the original HP stories. This fanfic remedies almost all complaints I have of the original works. It is easily in my top ten sci-fi books/stories and if a paper copy of it existed I would buy it in a heart beat. The only slight flaw in the podcast version is that the first 20 episodes are of a noticeably lower quality than the rest of it, but that is to be expected of non-professional work. If you appreciate the blending of science and magic as I do, you will no doubt binge the podcast in a few weeks. P.S.: It’d be great to continue on with this fanfic with Significant Digits by Alexander D.

Truly Spectacular

I've just finished this and I have few words that come to mind. I've read literally hundreds of novels and most of them were good, many of them were great, a few were truly spectacular. This brings one of the greatest novels I have ever read to life in a way that only improves upon it. Should you ever only listen to one podcast, and if you like intelligent fiction and Harry Potter or if you ever asked "Why didn't they just..." while reading Harry Potter, you should listen to this podcast.

There are some episodes where he includes other fiction, and frankly I skipped most of them the first time around and you probably will too. There are alright. But Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality is truly spectacular. And, it's free, so you have no excuse not to listen to it.
