Educating Jeremy


Educating Jeremy is a movie podcast hosted by Jeremy from Podcasts We Listen To and Deana Marie from TwistedPhilly. Deana Marie (forces) asks Jeremy to watch movies he's never seen but she loves. They discuss what they liked about the films, what he didn't like and occasionally there's a throat punch reference somewhere in between. Jeremy and Deana Marie discuss all genres of movies - horror, science fiction, action, etc. If you love movies and hosts who have fun smack talking each other, then you'll love Educating Jeremy!

  • Us Movie
    Us Movie
    Duration: 55min | 02/04/2019

    WARNING: If you have not seen Jordan Peele's new movie Us, do NOT listen to this episode!  It is filled with SPOILERS! Deana Mare and Jeremy change it up in this episode, discussing a new release movie: Us, written and directed by Jordan Peele.  Our hosts were thrilled for the release of Us, but were they thrilled when they left the theater? While the movie is new, the format is the same; our hosts share their thoughts about the latest installment from a new master of horror, they laugh and curse, share trivia and Jeremy seems to be mastering the sound board. But again, if you have not yet seen US, do not listen! You've been warned!  Also please forgive our scratchy voices, we were both sick!

    Episode 17: The Wizard of Oz
    Duration: 52min | 30/01/2019

    The Wizard of Oz is Deana's favorite movie of ALL TIME! If she could only have one movie to watch for the rest of her life, it would be this one. Turns out, Jeremy had never seen it...kind of... BUT! It came to the theater down the street for a special 80th Anniversary showing. So, of course, we had to go see it.    Last episode, we promised a 80's fantasy movie. But this was a "movie emergency" as Deana put it. Have no fear though, next episode is all about the 80's!

    Episode 16: Love Actually
    Duration: 43min | 26/01/2019

    Jeremy and Deana Marie keep the holiday spirit going with the modern Christmas romantic comedy Love Actually, written and directed by Richard Curtis.  Please ignore the fact Deana Marie has to convince Jeremy this film is actually a Christmas movie.  It's got a stellar ensemble cast, a terrific soundtrack and a bigger fan in Jeremy than Deana Marie expected.

    Episode 12: Shaun of the Dead
    Duration: 52min | 18/11/2018

    We continue our horror movie celebration (yeah, Halloween is over but so what) with the 2004 horror adventure comedy Shaun of the Dead, directed by Edgar Wright, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.  This is the first film in what Deana Marie calls the Trifecta, although its more widely known as one of the Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy.  Deana Marie absolutely loves this unique take on the classic zombie genre.  Jeremy loves the soundtrack, but does Jeremy think Shaun of the Dead is a little bit of fried gold? Tune in to find out!

    Deana Marie and Jeremy had a most excellent date night recently; watching the classic horror film Nosferatu outside at Laurel Hill Cemetery, one of the oldest and first pastoral cemeteries in the country.  This film is nearly 100 years old and has influenced so many films and filmmakers.  It's even featured in an episode of Sponge Bob Square Pants.  Turn the lights down low because it's about to get spooky on Educating Jeremy.

    Duration: 37min | 12/09/2018

    Our trip down the memory lane of 80s movies continue with a listener requested film from 1989: Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. How 16 year old Jeremy never saw this movie when it was released is beyond anyone's comprehension.  Yeah, it's cheesy.  Yeah, it's excellent, at least according to Deana Marie.  She loves what she considers a nod to Dr. Who, young Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, and the most epic history presentation of all time.  Jeremy loves.... well, love might be a strong word for this one.  BTW, did you know Deana Marie bakes for Jeremy on every recording day?  Guess those throat punches are meant in love.  Excellent!  Strange things are afoot on Educating Jeremy.

  • Episode 9: Purple Rain
    Episode 9: Purple Rain
    Duration: 49min | 01/09/2018

    Jeremy never watched Purple Rain.  No sugar coating it, he was a little dude when it came out, Deana Marie was almost 15 and although she couldn't see it in the theater, she saw it once Purple Rain hit VHS and she's been watching it ever since.  This film is an homage to the album of the same name, the Revolution and one of the greatest artists of all time.  Jeremy and Deana Marie discuss their mutual love of Prince, how Purple Rain showcases his music and the story of a kid trying to make it in the music industry in Minneapolis in 1984. 

  • Episode 8: The Quiet Man
    Episode 8: The Quiet Man
    Duration: 55min | 15/08/2018

    This week Jeremy and Deana Marie take a trip back in time to the days of Technicolor as they watch and discuss John Ford's The Quiet Man, starring Maureen O'Hara, John Wayne, Barry Fitzgerald and Victor McLaglen.  This film was a favorite of someone very special in Deana Marie's life so this episode has a little nostalgia, a lot of laughter, the usual throat punches and some deep discussion about the changes in how relationships are portrayed on screen today vs. 60+ years ago.  There's also a very interesting discussion about Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure at the very end of the episode so be sure to stick around for that!

  • Episode 7: Scarface
    Episode 7: Scarface
    Duration: 51min | 30/05/2018

    In this episode we invite you to say hello to our little friend!  Deana Marie and Jeremy enter the world of drug trafficking in the 80s with iconic character Tony Montana.  Shocking to think Jeremy hadn't seen Scarface, yet can quote the movie with great skill. Deana Marie gets nostalgic, sharing memories from the first time she saw Scarface, and her reactions as an adult aren't entirely different.  This movie was a special request by Justin, host of the Peripheral Podcast and co-host of Generation why Podcast.

  • Episode 6: The Conjuring
    Episode 6: The Conjuring
    Duration: 55min | 16/05/2018

    Things get spooky this week on Educating Jeremy as Deana Marie and Jeremy discuss one of her favorite ghost story movies: The Conjuring.  Based on actual events, our hosts talk about the film, the hauntings behind the movie, how they feel about Ed and Lorraine Warren and some great podcasts who actually interviewed Andrea Perron, one of the daughters affected by the haunting.  

  • Episode 5: Snakes on a Plane
    Episode 5: Snakes on a Plane
    Duration: 43min | 02/05/2018

    We've finally done it! We've found a movie Deana Marie loves which may not appeal quite as much to Jeremy - Snakes on a Plane.  This is classic Samuel L Jackson, although there aren't as many MFs as you might expect in a SLJ movie.  Not to worry, our hosts more than make up for that.  Deana Marie and Jeremy talk about snakes, snakes and more snakes, plus a bird that speaks with an Australian accent. Tune in to find out why this movie, which was an internet sensation before its release, is a favorite for Deana Marie's.  How Jeremy managed to suffer through this one is anyone's guess.

  • Episode 4: Moonstruck
    Episode 4: Moonstruck
    Duration: 49min | 18/04/2018

    This week we celebrate Deana Marie's Italian heritage with the 1987 film Moonstruck, starring two of her favorite actors: Nicholas Cage and Cher.  Jeremy was dubious about the casting but finds there's more depth, humor and love under la bella luna than he imagined.  We laughed, she cried and as always, there's an occasional throat punch.  This is an extra special episode about a movie that was a favorite of a special man in Deana Marie's life, and becomes a special movie to Jeremy too. A la familia!

  • Episode 3: Young Sherlock Holmens
    Episode 3: Young Sherlock Holmens
    Duration: 27min | 03/04/2018

    No, contrary to Jeremy's initial thoughts, this is not a movie featuring Yahoo Serious!  Young Sherlock Holmes is a film from 1985 starring Nicholas Rowe as the title character (one of Deana Marie's teenage crushes,) and tells the story of how Holmes and Watson met while investigating their first case at Brompton Academy in Victorian England.  Can Jeremy get past what he sees as a dated but fun movie?  And how many times will Deana Marie gush about Nicholas Rowe?   Follow the show on social media!

  • Episode 2: Galaxy Quest
    Episode 2: Galaxy Quest
    Duration: 45min | 03/04/2018

    From the first moment she saw it, Galaxy Quest has been one of Deana Marie's favorite films. Alan Rickman, check!  Tim Allen, Check! Sigourney Weaver, check! Justin Long, check! Homage to all the fans who love Star Trek and wish like anything Galaxy Quest was real, check!  Deana Marie watches this movie multiple times a year, yet Jeremy had never seen it. He probably had no intentions of every watching it since he figured it was a cheesy sci-fi spoof that even William Shatner wouldn't watch.  And he would be wrong. Follow the show on social media!

    Episode 1: The Visit
    Duration: 34min | 03/04/2018

    Welcome to the very first episode of Educating Jeremy, the podcast where Deana Marie, host of TwistedPhilly, convinces Jeremy, host of Podcast We Listen To, to watch movies she loves but he's never seen.  In this first episode our hosts watch The Visit by M. Night Shyamalan, who happens to be one of Deana Marie's favorite filmmakers and a Philly boy.  There's lots of love for M. Knight, a few cuss words, lots of laughs and a few Shania Twains thrown in for good measure.  Oh, in case we forget, don't go in the shed. Follow the show on social media!

    Introduction - Educating Jeremy
    Duration: 03min | 02/04/2018

    Educating Jeremy is a new bi-weekly podcast hosted by a pod couple; Deana Marie and Jeremy.  Both love movies, but somehow Jeremy hasn't seen most of the movies Deana Marie loves.  That's where Educating Jeremy comes in.  Every other week our hosts watch a movie on Deana Marie's list of favorites to educate Jeremy.  They'll talk about why Deana Marie loves the movie, why Jeremy never saw it and what he thinks of it now that he has.  This pod is genre agnostic - our hosts watch everything from comedy to horror and anything in between. They laugh together, cuss together and watch movies together so we can all be a part of Educating Jeremy.
