‘You Must Remember This’ Podcast to Tackle Erotic Movies of ’80s and ’90s
The first installment of the two-part season, titled "Erotic 80s," will debut April 5.
You Must Remember This, the Hollywood history podcast hosted by Karina Longworth, has set the subject of its next season: erotic films of the 1980s and 1990s.
Longworth spent much of the early COVID-19 pandemic watching movies from these two decades, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “One thing that became clear to me is that the world has changed in many ways that are very evident in cinema.” Racism, sexism and homophobia were far more prevalent in these movies, says Longworth, but “at the same time, there was this sense that a lot of really big, hit movies — that reflected the culture — dealt with people’s sex lives in a way that movies don’t do anymore, at least Hollywood movies. I wanted to try to figure out why that was.”
