You Must Remember This

A TV and Film podcast featuring Karina Longworth
 31 people rated this podcast
You Must Remember This is a storytelling podcast exploring the secret and/or forgotten histories of Hollywood’s first century. It’s the brainchild and passion project of Karina Longworth (founder of, former film critic for LA Weekly), who writes, narrates, records and edits each episode. It is a heavily-researched work of creative nonfiction: navigating through conflicting reports, mythology, and institutionalized spin, Karina tries to sort out what really happened behind the films, stars and scandals of the 20th century.

"Excellent podcast on all things Hollywood and the cultural influences of the 20th Century. Podcast is at its strongest when it does a series with an overarching theme - like Charlie Manson's Hollywood or The Blacklist. "

"A lot of ads, but top grade production values and very well done. Longworth is great but her character voices are a bit terrible."

"Top quality cinema history podcast. A topic I had little interest in, but oh those were the days before the I heard the Joan Crawford episodes. Those were simpler times. Now my reason of existence is but to wait the long wait for episodes of this magnificiently produced and expertly narrated (you are brilliant, Karina Longworth) minutes of this podcast, telling the most fascinating pieces of cinema and art history."
