The Alohomora! Podcast Hosts

The hosts of Alohomora! have collectively worked on MuggleNet for 39 years.

That's a lot of brain power. So, you would think that hosting a podcast with that many years of Potter experience would be easy. You would be right. No, just kidding. The hosts make it look easy, but it's not. They do have a lot of fun though! Want to know more about their mundane Muggle lives? All the boring details are below.

Alison, a 21 year old Californian-currently-residing-in-Utah, has been a Harry Potter fanatic since she was five, and has since read the series over fifty times. A proud (and often conflicted) Gryffinpuff, she is studying to be a high school English teacher at Brigham Young University. Though she can connect absolutely everything to Harry Potter, she also loves reading, writing, tennis, music, hanging out with family and friends, and thinking about all of the above. She's been told that she basically is Hermione Granger, from the bossiness to the naturally frizzy hair and everything in between.
Caleb, a 26-year-old native Texan, is a walking Harry Potter encyclopedia, which speaks more to his sheer obsession than any real brain power. He feels pretty privileged to have essentially grown up alongside the books being released, which often takes him too far in wishing it was all real! He is a proud Gryffindor and Minerva McGonagall’s #1 fan (Minerva is my Homegirl!). Otherwise, he spends time reading, writing, and running.
Eric, 25 originally from Reading, Pennsylvania, is currently enjoying life in the Windy City (Chicago, IL). No stranger to podcasts, Eric has co-hosted MuggleCast since 2005 and currently can also be found on “Game of Owns” and occasionally “Hogwarts Radio.” Eric is thrilled to continue discussion of Harry Potter well beyond his own adolescence.
Kat, a proud Ravenclaw from Massachusetts, has been a part of the Harry Potter fandom for most of her adult life. Now in her mid-30's, she has read the Harry Potter series so many times, she has lost count! As the podcasts resident Eagle, she has basically memorized the lexicon, usually has the correct answer to a question & loves to prove others wrong! The 10% of her life that she spends not thinking on, talking about, or reading Harry Potter, is dedicated to travel, photography, and petting her two adorable, soft kitties.
Kristen, a 25-year-old Ravenclaw from Virginia, has been a fan of Harry Potter since the age of 12 and has read the books countless times. Her favorite pass time is to curl up with a good book surrounded by her two puppies, Tag & Sherlock.  She works as the Social Media Manager for MuggleNet. Kristen's Muggle passion is working with kids who have disabilities. Right now, she is an ABA therapist for children on the Autism spectrum. She graduated from VCU with my Bachelor of Science in Psychology.
Michael is a 26-year-old Hufflepuff from Albuquerque, New Mexico (though he now lives in Austin, Texas). Michael previously managed and hosted MuggleNet Fan Fiction’s AudioFictions program, and is best known in the Harry Potter community for his many impressions of various wizarding world denizens. Beyond Potter, Michael graduated from university in 2011 with a major in Cinematic Arts and a minor in Theater. He is currently pursuing a career as a professional Youth Services Librarian. In his spare time, Michael does his best to conduct himself as similarly to Professor Lupin as he can, while also collecting Harry Potter Trading Cards in the hope that someone will someday play the game with him.
Rosie, a 24-year-old Medieval Studies and Literature student from Oxford, UK, has been working for MuggleNet for over eight years though most people probably didn’t know. She’s spent most of her time over on MuggleNet Fanfiction moderating stories and exploring all aspects of the Potterverse both within the canon and fan-universes. A loyal Hufflepuff, she loves to find new ways of viewing the text and making connections within the fandom.

    Thanks so much for this podcast. Been a Potter fan since 2001 but just discovered podcasts this summer. I have listened to all 97 episodes and greatly look forward to finishing the books with you. Love to talk HP and now have someone share this with.

  • Hufflepug

    I’m creeping on the hosts page instead of reading for class so I can say how entertaining this podcast is and how awesome all of you guys are for pulling it off every week and offering a platform for your listeners to be part of the discussion. Happy 100th episode! :)

  • laughing with Fred

    Hey guys just heard the podcast, and the comment about my username. The reason I chose luaghing with Fred is not to be morbid, but to highlight the many moments of joy and laughter that the twins brought to me throughout the series.

  • Rosie and Kat are my favs. Where is Noah, did he leave later on?

    • Kat

      Thanks Meggy! Noah did leave not long ago.

      • Sorry if I am behind. I just started on the podcasts. Content from 2012! lol.

        Those British accents :O

  • Sarah M.

    Michael, your British accent is awful and your impressions are INSUFFERABLE. I’m a huge HP fan, but I can’t listen to this podcast because of your annoying, egotistical tendency to slip into a fake British accent. Please stop thinking you’re good at doing HP voices… you’re not.
