So I figured  I could run a list from my own personal machine and use remote smtp to just mail to the list. ( its going to be an announcement list only). Well, I am running debian and home and I was able to finally get exim4 talking with gmail and use googles smtp servers.

Why not just let Exim connect directly to the recipients' smtp servers?

You have at least two choices:

You can use bin/inject to put a post into Mailman's 'in' queue, or you
can set up Exim/Mailman integration (see
and set up an MUA (email client) to post to the smtp server on
'localhost' and send posts through it.
