Our Story

We are Sam and Emily. Two best friends who decided to combine two of our favorite things: Harry Potter and alcohol.

We met our freshman year of high-school and quickly bonded over our shared obsession of all things Harry Potter, and our strong disdain for gym class (though we did make a kick-ass badminton duo).  Now that we are over the age of 21 and living far away from each other, in a very real, adult-world, we wanted a fun way to stay connected! 

This podcast is for everyone who is like us and just wants an outlet to still discuss and obsess over all Potterverse related things, in a laid-back setting. 

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for listening!

About Us



Hello friends, I'm Sam! I am a Hufflepuff and thrilled to be co-hosting this podcast and connecting with all of you about two of my passions: Harry Potter and booze. In my spare time you could find me consuming copious amounts of Mexican food, listening to music, reading, or playing with my German Shepherd mix, Guinness. 



Hi everyone, I'm Emily. I'm your Ravenclaw, pug obsessed, wine loving co-host of Harry Potter and the Half-Drunk Podcast. This is a dream come true for me to create content with my best friend and talk all things Harry Potter. In my spare time I love interior design, hiking, scoping out new restaurants, and reading.
