This week I’m going to recommend the You Must Remember This podcast. The series deals with the history of Hollywood in its first 100 years, with each 30-40 minute episode meticulously researched and full of juicy anecdotes. They had a wonderful 12-part special on Charles Manson and now they are doing another on the MGM studio. The show is presented by film historian Karina Longworth – I love the way she tells her stories and I could listen to her voice all day. She holds three degrees in film and was chief critic for the LA Weekly. She resigned because she was forced to have opinions on films she didn’t care about. This podcast is a much better fit for her talents. Each episode begins an eerie, remix of Dooley Wilson’s vocals and Karina’s trademark invitation: “Join us, won’t you?” If, like me, you love Hollywood history do think you should join Karina.
