The show was originally hosted by Jaret Reddick and family friend, Rich Coleman, but they were quickly joined by Reddick's wife, Casey, by episode 4[2] (Raiders of the Lost Ark) and then later by Reddick's neighbor, Wil Vark, on episode 44[3] (Tommy Boy) to shore up the final cast and Sean Kennedy (Silent Sean 3.16) signed up to help as their Audio/Video Engineer in December of 2017. The show features round-table discussions on favorite movies from the one or more of the hosts' past and the podcast maintains its tagline, This is movie commentary with no movie knowledge. In 2016, Jaret Goes to the Movies was nominated for People's Choice Podcast Awards in the TV/Film category. The podcast is also hosted on iTunes.[4]
