This season, You Must Remember This will explore the murders committed in the summer of 1969 by followers of Charles Manson, and the Hollywood music and movie scene surrounding the killings. Throughout the series, we’ll learn how a single sociopath’s thwarted dreams of fame and fortune led to the gruesome events which became the symbolic “end of the sixties.” Future episodes will explore the various celebrities, musicians, movie stars and filmmakers (including Roman Polanski, Sharon Tate, The Beach Boys, Dennis Hopper, Doris Day and more) whose paths crossed with Manson’s in meaningful ways, both leading up to the murders and in their aftermath. Today, we’ll talk about what was going on in the show business capital that made Manson seem like a relatively normal guy. Then we'll lay out the basic facts of who was killed, and how, in order to begin to explain how these unthinkable crimes fit in to the tapestry of one of the most tumultuous times in Hollywood history.If you give it a listen, let me know. I'm dying to talk to someone about this podcast!

Podcast | You Must Remember This (Charles Manson's Hollywood)...
As I mentioned last month, I am currently obsessed with Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark's podcast My Favorite Murder and have been listening to the episodes as soon as they've been popping up in my feed. Well in one of their episodes they mentioned a podcast called You Must Remember This (Specifically the Charles Manson series) and I started listening to it the other day. Oh my God, I binge listened to all twelve of the episodes and wish that there were more. It was this amazingly researched and produced series that went into the history of Charles Manson, his family and the events surrounding/leading up to the infamous killings. It was so good and if you're interested in true crime, Manson or whatever, you should give this podcast a listen because it was just so entertaining and intriguing.
