Grease 2

Spending my vacation in the summer sun, gettin' lots of action and a lots of fun, scorin' like a bandit 'til the bubble burst, suddenly it got to be August 31st!

Come on everybody, gather 'round, I'm gonna show you how to knock 'em down. When I'm on the ball, I'm the number one, and I'm gonna show you how it's done.

It's time for the annual birthday episode! While I pride myself on being your Girl For All Seasons, sometimes you have to Do It for Our Country and forget the Charades. It's time for the superior Grease to reign supreme - Grease 2!

Who's That Guy? It's Maxwell Caulfield! Who's looking for a Cool Rider? well, me, but also Michelle Pfeiffer! No need to be Prowlin' through your podcast app looking for a Rock-a-Hula-Luau. We'll Be Together, and (Love Will) Turn Back the Hands of Time to go Back to School Again in 1961 at Rydell High, as the T-Birds and Pink Ladies return to Score Tonight.

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.

Episodes are book ended by my cat Jess. She sadly passed away in March 2022, aged almost 18. She featured in many episodes of the podcast, and that's why you can hear her at the end of every episode. The role of official feline producer is now held by four-month-old Evie.

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.
