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.


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."
