You Must Remember This

Karina Longworth

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. read less

Our Editor's Take

Some stories and scandals will go down in history. Others get forgotten. This fascinating series creatively examines iconic moments that caused a stir in recent history. True crime meets celebrity gossip in this investigative podcast series.

Listeners interested in celebrity gossip and Hollywood history won't want to miss out on You Must Remember This. The series explores some rising starlets' rise to stardom and the downfalls of others. From alleged curses that affected Hollywood's biggest names to chilling murder cases, the host leaves no stone unturned.

Some topics, like the Charles Manson murders, are familiar to most audiences. Some, like the life of Oscar nominee Polly Platt, are less talked about today. But this podcast dusts off the cobwebs and brings these stories back to light.

The podcast launched in 2014. The host is the film critic and writer Karina Longworth. She lends her excellent storytelling skills to the show.

Each episode is approximately one hour long. Each topic spans several episodes within the series. This gives the host ample time to dish the dirt and share all the juicy details. Hollywood obsessives can catch up on hundreds of episodes in the archive of You Must Remember This on Amazon Music.
