Hi! I'm Em. I created Verbal Diorama in 2018, and launched the podcast in February 2019 to rapturous applause and acclaim.... from my cat Jess.
The modus operandi of Verbal Diorama is simple: movies are tough to make! The coming together of a team of people from all walks of life to make something to entertain, delight and educate us for 90+ mins is not an easy task, and yet so many succeed at it. That must be something to celebrate.
I'm here to do just that - to celebrate movies. Their history and legacy, and why they remain so special to so many of us.
I mostly host solo, but often you'll hear my cat Jess in the background (she's 17 years old, and very loud!).
I love podcasts and listen to many, but never my own.
I unashamedly love The Mummy (1999) and Grease 2. I'm still looking for a cool rider.
