You Must Remember This

Despite being about recent history, this podcast explores a specific part of American culture and history that has secret stories often forgotten.

Here to shed light on the secrets of Hollywood’s first century is Karina Longworth. She narrates, writes and edits all the episodes from home.

It often appears in the top 100 of all podcasts on iTunes.

To help bring recent history to life Longworth frequently brings some actors and comedians on her show.

They work together to uncover parts of Hollywood most people didn’t even know existed. Mark Olsen, Anne Helen Petersen, John Mulaney, Fred Savage and many others have all been guests on the show.

Conflicting reports and mythologizing goes on throughout the podcast.

Though accuracy and uncovering the truth are essential factors of the podcast more often than not, the truth comes out nowhere near as believable and straightforward as most might imagine.
