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.

You really must remember this

Karina Longworth does her homework. The episodes are like a masterclass in old Hollywood but the episodes are so much more. Using Hollywood as a lens she shows not just what was happening in the movies but society at large. The mini series about Joan Crawford was a fresh take on Joan but also about the general struggle of women fighting to survive in a mans world. A lot of podcasts are ruined by the narrator so I feel it is important to mention that Karina’s voice is pleasant and her reading skillful.

So woke

Good content, but her enunciation and “wokeness” is grating. Would have been better if Karina had incorporated interviews black people in the movie industry, instead of asserting she understands the black experience.

Please talk normal

Great content & research but the narrator sounds like someone trying to double space & 12.5 pt their font to make their essay sound longer.
