About Michael DiMauro

Michael founded GeeklyInc with Tim Lanning way back in 2013 when they realized they had two podcasts and needed a place to stick them. Since then, Geekly has grown and taken off in ways Michael could have never imagined.

 

If we were to make a flowchart for life, it would go something like this: Have you read Harry Potter? Yes → Good. No → Read Harry Potter Now, You Garbage Person. Just kidding. (But really, you should read Harry Potter.)

With this philosophy in mind, your friends here at GeeklyInc have a big announcement to make: “Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!”

Also: We are pleased to introduce Yer a Wizard, Harry a weekly Harry Potter book club podcast. Your favorite muggleborns, Michael DiMauro, Bijaya Shrestha, and Sarah Tompkins, will work their way through each book in the series – recapping and discussing chapters, posing the important questions you previously had to ask your Gilderoy Lockhart poster, and delving Hermione-level deep into the world of Harry Potter.

If you’re a Harry Potter fan – this podcast is for you. If you’ve never read Harry Potter – this podcast is definitely for you. Try something new this year! Pilates is for chumps!

We can’t wait to have you join us for our grown-up and (not so) spoiler-free book club. We’re just like your mom and her friends. Except with less pinot grigio and more Butterbeer.

P.S. Here is our first episode! Join us as we talk about The Boy Who Lived (the chapter, the boy himself), begin our fearsome trivia battle, and talk about how we came to be card carrying members of the Harry Potter obsessed.

P.P.S. We are beautiful and hilarious.

  1. Holy crap…you READ the books, right? CABBAGE DRACONIS???? It was fun and I don’t mean to JUST be critical because FUN is priority number one (obviously, since I came in from a different Geekly podcast…eh hem, ASOIAF, eh hem)so I will leave it at that and give episode 2 a try.

    • Haha its okay! My brain has always taken it as Cabbage Draconis for some reason – even though I’ve read the books so many times. I have no clue why. You live and you learn!

  2. I’ve heard (and I’m hoping it’s true) that the baby that played Harry in the first movie is the same actor that played his son, Albus Severus, in the 7th!
