Listeners may already be familiar with Karina Longworth’s excellent podcast, You Must Remember This, but just in case Buntsy’s repeated references to its outstanding Manson’s-Hollywood mini-season DIS-couraged you from checking it out, the pod is “dedicated to exploring the secret, and/or forgotten, histories of Hollywood’s first century.” So, in addition to Manson’s Hollywood, Longworth has also done seasons on debunking the book Hollywood Babylon; Jean and Jane, about the sometimes-parallel careers of Jean Seberg and Jane Fonda; and others. Today we’re designing our ideal seasons for You Must Also Remember This: Idiot Box (or whatever we end up naming them). If such a podcast existed about ‘s television‘s first…let’s say half century, what stories and figures would we revisit in the first season? Are we going behind the scenes of a single embattled show; following the fortunes of a ubiquitous TV star (who either fell from, or couldn’t make the leap to, the silver screen); or taking a broader look at a network? Any direction was fine, but our eligible years are 1928-1978.
