Famed director Quentin Tarantino and Pulp Fiction co-writer Roger Avary have recently announced that they will be hosting a new film podcast.
Quentin Tarantino is set to host a film podcast with his Pulp Fiction co-writer Roger Avary. The director has cultivated an impressive career with only nine films under his belt. Tarantino made a splash with his debut in Hollywood with the 1992 independent thriller Reservoir Dogs but became a household name with the film 1994 Palme d’Or winner Pulp Fiction, a crime drama he wrote with his longtime friend Avary. The film also delivered the pair an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
Per the AP, Tarantino and Avary have announced that they will be headlining their own film podcast called The Video Archives Podcast. Named after the now out-of-business Manhattan Beach video store of the same name in which the two filmmakers first met in 1983, the podcast will have the hosts discuss the films they watched from the store’s vast library. In a joint statement, the two filmmakers expressed their excitement about their new endeavor. Read their statement below.

“We never imagined that 30 years after we worked together behind the counter at Video Archives, we would be together again doing the exact same thing we did back then: talking passionately about movies on VHS. Watching movies was what originally brought us together and made us friends, and it’s our love of movies that still brings us together today.”

Following the closing of the Video Archives store, Tarantino purchased the entirety of the business’ inventory. This consisted of over 8,000 VHS video cassettes and DVDs. The Video Archives Podcast is set for release on SiriusXM’s Stitcher and is slated to hit the service this summer. Tarantino has also repeatedly told his fans that he has planned to release only ten films. With nine completed, the director has yet to announce the subject of his tenth and final film. The director recently announced that he will be writing a non-fiction book on film history this year. Avary has also continued his film-making career with his latest production being 2019’s Lucky Day, a crime drama starring Nina Dobrev that serves as a loose sequel to the director’s critical darling Killing Zoe.
