Peter Bogdanovich: One Handshake Away

Peter Bogdanovich: One Handshake Away

Audacy and Stak announced the launch of One Handshake Away: Peter Bogdonavich & The Icons of Cinema, a seven-part limited-run series featuring Academy Award-nominated director, writer, actor, producer, critic, and film historian Peter Bogdanovich in conversation with some of the greatest directors past and present.

Listeners can expect to hear from Guillermo del ToroOrson Welles, Greta Gerwig, Quentin Tarantino, Ken Burns and Alfred Hitchcock in both new and never-before-heard archival interviews.

One Handshake Away is one of the last projects Hollywood legend Bogdanovich worked on before his death.



When Bogdanovich passed away in 2022 before the project could be completed, his ex-wife, producer and actor Louise Stratten, stepped in to serve as narrator and co-host. The three-time Academy Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro filled in as host for the final three episodes.

In each episode, Bogdanovich–and del Toro for the final three–sits down with a contemporary prominent director to pay homage to a master, offering insight and perspective on the influence and impact the legends who came before them had on their career and filmmaking.

The discussions, which are uniquely candid and provide unprecedented access, are framed around a bounty of never-before-heard archival interviews that Bogdanovich conducted with auteurs who inspired him, like Hitchcock, Welles, John Ford, Howard Hawks, and Don Siegel.

The discussions, which are uniquely candid and provide unprecedented access, are framed around a bounty of never-before-heard archival interviews that Bogdanovich conducted with auteurs who inspired him, like Hitchcock, Welles, John Ford, Howard Hawks, and Don Siegel. These sit alongside contemporary conversations with some of this generation’s greatest living filmmakers, including del Toro, Gerwig, Tarantino, Rian Johnson, Ken Burns, Julie Delpy, and Allison Anders.

“Peter loved doing the TCM podcast ‘The Plot Thickens’ – he loved working with Ben Mankiewicz on that. It inspired him so much that he wanted to take his old recordings of his interviews of these original directors that mentored and inspired him and started his career. He had the idea to come full circle and share his treasure chest with the current directors that he admired and were friends with to have a conversation about them and to keep these directors that inspired him in the current conversation. Hence ‘One Hand Shake Away.'” – Louise Stratten, Narrator and Co-host and Bogdanovich’s ex-wife 

One Handshake Away: Peter Bogdanovich & The Icons of Cinema will launch with the first two episodes – featuring Guilermo del Toro discussing Alfred Hitchcok and Quentin Tarantino discussing Don Siegel – on Wednesday 7th February 2024. New episodes will be released weekly until 13th March. Listen to the trailer and follow here
