Each week, they have a main discussion where the talk about a certain topic, character or event. They're are also a variety of other segments, such as: Chapter By Chapter, Make The Music Connection, Voicemails, The Sorting Hat and more. The hosts also respond to feedback on the show.

Their website can be found [[http://mugglenet.com/mugglecast/ here]].

The hosts:
* Andrew Sims, the main host.
* Ben Schoen, one of the original hosts who isn't on much any more.
* Eric Scull, known for going into long spiels.
* Jamie Lawrence, resident Brit.
* Micah Tannenbaum, {{MuggleCast}} news anchorman.
* Laura Thompson, known for being (for a long time) the only female host.
* Mikey B., a film major who is one of the more recent hosts.
* Matt Britton, the new guy.
* Elysa Montfort, she and Laura have interchangable brains.

Previous hosts:
* Kevin Steck, the {{Geek}}.

Guest hosts:
* Greg Porter of [[http://xalerstudios.com Xaler Studios]].
* The [[http://pottercast.the-leaky-cauldron.org/ [=PotterCast=]]] trio Melissa Anelli, John Noe and Sue Upton.
* Andy [=McCray=] of [[http://hpfanzone.com of HP Fanzone]].
* Jess, former [=MuggleNet=] staff member.
* Also, others.

Many of the hosts host another podcast called [[http://smartmouthspodcast.com/ Smart Mouths]], which is more "mature" than MuggleCast and they discuss a more widespread selection of topics, such as general news and politics. While Andrew, Matt, and Elysa head up Imprint, a podcast dedicated to the ''Twilight'' Series. The podcast tends to fall a bit on the Twihard side of the uberfan-uberhater spectrum, but still manages to sneak in a few moments of snark (the podcast even managed to score an interview with the rather publicity-shy Stephenie Meyers herself).
