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.

Truly a passion project

Sooo good. I can hear how much she loves the work. I can’t wait to listen to more!!

Dull

This would be the perfect podcast to fall asleep to – because Longworth (the narrator) has all the emotional inflection of a bored corpse. Her voice drones on and on in a monotone, that eventually makes you want to beat your head against the car dashboard. If her choice of historical events held even the slightest bit of interest, perhaps this would offset the sedative effect of her voice, but alas her historical studies are as dull as her tone.
