Author Richard Rhodes on Hedy Lamarr

at 10:00 AM

Pulitzer prize-winning Bay Area author Richard Rhodes joins us to discuss his new book all about the film siren Hedy Lamarr. We'll move from pre-war Vienna to Paris in the 1920s and learn about the intellectual vigor of this starlet, whose scientific tinkering would ultimately inspire the invention of broad spectrum radio.

Guests:

Richard Rhodes, journalist and historian. Pulitzer prize-winning author of "The Making of the Atomic Bomb" and more recently "Hedy's Folly: The Life and Breakthrough Inventions of Hedy Lamarr."
