Hosted by film journalist Karina Longworth, You Must Remember This explores the secret and forgotten histories of 20th century Hollywood.

If you’re looking for a new podcast to get obsessed with, let us explain why this is it.

It’s the perfect mish-mash of pop culture and history

Most episodes play into the wider issues of the time – for example, The Blacklist series explores the fear of Communism that gripped America and wreaked havoc on Hollywood after WWII.

You’re learning while indulging your love of celebrity gossip. Who could want more?

At first, you’ll be like, “Who is this gal and why does she talk like a cartoon character?” But about two episodes in, you’ll wonder why everyone doesn’t speak like her.

It’s ostensibly about the Golden Age of Hollywood, but covers so much more than that

There’s lots about Humphrey Bogart, Elizabeth Taylor and their ilk, but the podcast also covers the lives of Bruce and Brandon Lee, and how Madonna used her romantic relationships to shape her career. Juicy.

Start with the series about Charles Manson’s Hollywood

It’s expansive, brilliantly researched, and pretty much encompasses what YMRT is all about.

And pretty soon, the new episodes will be the highlight of your week

Which Hollywood heavyweight is Karina going to ruin for us this week? Only joking Karina. Love you.
