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.

My favorite podcast hands-down

I wish there were new episodes because I’ve listened to all of them multiple times. This podcast has no flaws. The stories and the telling are perfect.

Fifty Shades of boredom ,

Information check

I would say it’s a very good podcast but some of her facts are wrong and her voice is so affected sometimes she needs to check and recheck her information and not be so concerned about how she sounds maybe check her sources
But it’s still entertaining

Great show for old-Hollywood fans

Host Karina Longworth dives deep into the lore of twentieth century Hollywood, filling out the details of stories that frequently circulate in a vague, unresearched version. The delivery is at once balanced and dramatic. Great listen!
