Podcast maps out the scandalous history of Hollywood

Podcast maps out the scandalous history of Hollywood

The Golden Age of Hollywood is always ripe for revisiting. It was the era of glittering stars and memorable movies, powerful directors and more powerful studios.

And scandal after scandal.

One of the most interesting podcasts around now is "You Must Remember This," which is dedicated to exploring the secret and forgotten histories of Hollywood's first century. This covers the so-called Golden Age right up to modern times -- after all, scandal never goes away, does it?

Episodes have included explorations of silent film sex symbol Theda Bara, 1930's wild child Kay Francis, Charles Manson's murderous connection with Hollywood and how a promotional photo from "One Million Years B.C." made Raquel Welch famous, but saddled her with a very specific image.

Recent episodes have tackled author Kenneth Anger's landmark book "Hollywood Babylon," fact-checking the tale and setting the record straight.

Guest stars have included celebrities Fred Savage, Patton Oswalt, Taran Killam, Dana Carvey, Adam Goldberg and Wil Wheaton.

"You Must Remember This" is available at iTunesSpotifyStitcherTuneIn and at the "You Must Remember This" website.
