We had the good fortune of connecting with Aged Like Milk Podcast and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Aged Like Milk, every day, we about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
We started the Aged Like Podcast because first and foremost we are film fans. We’ve been friends for years and would alway geek out over movie quotes. During the pandemic we decided to create a fun podcast where we could talk about our favorite classics as an expression of our creativity.

Paris: David is the most knowledgeable movie buff I know, so it was a logical co-host situation.

David: I love Paris’ perspective on every movie we cover. She’s always getting me to see things from a different perspective.

Paris: I think that’s what works for us, I’m an Australian who grew up in Hong Kong, and David is a bi-racial Wisconsinite. We come from very different backgrounds and it’s interesting to see how we analyze movies.

David: I think our audience gets a very high level and introspective conversation between the two of us, and our industry guests. We have a very unique take on the film industry since I’m and actor and Paris is an emerging writer/director.

Paris: As far as I know, there aren’t many podcasts like ours.

David: Or if there are, they aren’t as funny as us (when we have a few drinks).

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
We just want to add a little laughter and sunshine to people’s days, and the movies explore are often times throwbacks, which makes for a lot of fun. With that though, we acknowledge how far we’ve come.

Paris: I feel like we’re a pretty special pairing when it comes to podcast hosts, just because we’ve come from such different backgrounds. Like for example, I have not personally seen many of the “classics” so to watch them for the first time with the lens of 2021, it can be a bit eye popping. I mean the whole concept of our show is if something has “aged like milk” aka gone bad in the mind fridge of your mind over time.

David: We have a very specific lane in the podcast space. With multiple diverse perspectives between the hosts and our industry guests, we cover so many different aspects of the chosen film. What is special to me is that we have unlimited movies to choose from, so every week is going to be unique.

Paris: Starting any new venture is always challenging. The podcast space is definitely crowded, but honestly we make the show because we love talking about film, and we’ve seen our audience grow steadily week over week. Even if we didn’t I’d probably still be down to get together once a week to talk to David or our industry guests about their thoughts. So many people told me, like, podcasts are overdone and to those people I say, NO. It isn’t, because we’ve had so many random listeners contact us and say they love our fresh take.

David: I could talk about movies all day long, and this gives me an excuse to watch new movies and my favorite older movies. I’ve learned so much just in 25 episodes, between speaking with Paris, and then all of the insight from our industry guests. They can speak to their wheelhouse, some of which I’ve had no clue on what goes into what they do.

Paris: It does take confidence to say, “hey I made this, will you check it out?” But thankfully I get to make it with one of my closest friends, and truly, we’ve been overwhelmed by the support.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Living in LA, there are just so many places to visit. If you were coming here for a week, you’d have to hit Mulholland Drive for the views and also for the cinematic qualities (Mulholland Drive was duh, shot there). You’d have to hit up the Observatory at Griffith Park to live out your La La Land fantasy. The Hollywood sign obviously for that standard I made it shot. For that true Los Angeles vibe The Rainbow Room and The Viper Room are must visits. We’re a little partial to the bars along Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood (this is our haunt). I mean, we drink a lot on the podcast, so really any bar in LA, be it dive or swanky joint and we’re in. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
It’s gotta be people who work in the film industry. That’s why we give a shoutout to someone from the cast or crew every episode. We appreciate all of the hard work and dedication behind the scenes of the movies we enjoy and review. It takes a village.
