In this episode of BUST's Poptarts, we discuss Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, a riveting documentary about a 1940s screen goddess who led a secret life as an inventor and created a radio system that became the basis of today's cellular and bluetooth technology. We dig in to all things Hedy with the film's writer/director Alexandra Dean and celebrate this flick that is finally giving a STEM visionary her due.
About: BUST's Poptarts is a twice-monthly podcast hosted by BUST Magazine editors Emily Rems and Callie Watts that celebrates women in pop culture. The first half of each episode is devoted to a hot topic in entertainment, and in the second half, a segment called "Whatcha Watchin'?," Callie and Emily dig into all the shows, movies, books, music, videos, and podcasts they've enjoyed since the last episode, and either praise or pan each experience.
