You Must Remember This

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.

Can't get enough

I first heard about this from Anne Helen Petersen's twitter feed, and it's become my favourite new podcast. Karina strikes the perfect balance between salaciousness and intelligent social analysis. Thanks so much, and keep it coming!

I love this podcast. Endlessly interesting, and also a great guide for all the classic movies you should watch.


Karina Longworth's research is so thorough and she builds amazing narratives. She uses recurring themes like World War II, the romances of Howard Hughes, and 1938 in film, so each podcast stands on its own but listening to all of them has its rewards. She'll tell stories explaining a particular stage of a famous person's career, too. My favourite episodes are the ones about how Madonna demonstrated her love of Hollywood in her work, and about Mia Farrow's early years as an actress.
