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 Cinematical.com, 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.

Favorite podcast

This is my favorite podcast of all time. I come back to listen often. I absolutely love Karina Longworth’s voice and way of storytelling. My dream is to assist her someday in creating new episodes. In the meantime, I do my daily study of old stars and wow my coworkers with the facts. Thank you for inspiring, K.

Opting out

I love this history and your great stories but I can’t take the narration. I find the overly precise enunciated speech very annoying.
