Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary will launch their first podcast with SiriusXM’s Stitcher. On The Video Archives Podcast, Tarantino and Avary will revisit film classics and discover new favorites. TRAILER

In 1983, Quentin and Roger started working together at the original location of the iconic Video Archives movie rental store in Manhattan Beach, California. It’s there that the pair, who went on to collaborate on the Oscar-winning screenplay for Pulp Fiction, began to share their love of lesser-known films, with each other and with the store’s customers. Their knowledge of cinema and classic movies became so revered that it turned them into local celebrities, bringing new audiences to the selections they recommended, and setting the trajectory for their careers in filmmaking.

Now, more than 30 years later, Quentin and Roger will revisit those classics on The Video Archives Podcast. On each episode, they’ll rewatch and discuss movies pulled from the actual collection of VHS tapes that they used to recommend to customers, which Quentin acquired in 1995 and used to rebuild the Video Archives store in his home. From controversial James Bond films to surprising exploitation flicks, the duo, joined by their announcer Gala Avary, will expose listeners to movies they didn’t know they’d love, give awards to their favorites, and of course, rate the quality of the video transfer.

In a joint statement, Quentin and Roger said: “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. So we surrounded ourselves with the original Video Archives collection, where we both worked before we became celebrated filmmakers, and time-traveled ourselves back to the golden age of VHS. We LOVE to discuss movies, and we want to welcome you into the Video Archives Podcast to hang with us and Archives’ new employee Gala, and discover the hidden VHS gems on our shelves.”

“Quentin and Roger have made such enduring marks on filmmaking,” said Scott Greenstein, Chief Content Officer at SiriusXM, “and it’s remarkable to think that it all goes back to a video rental store in Manhattan Beach. We’re so excited to be able to help them revisit this formative moment in their careers, and to bring their recommendations to new and larger audiences.”
