S8E6: She Blinded Me With Science | Caresse Crosby & Hedy Lamarr

This week, we’re digging into two of the most interesting minds and lives of the 20th century who brought us inventions that certainly shape our day-to-day lives. First up, Stacie has Caresse Crosby, who invented the modern bra as a young woman and went on to live an extraordinary life as part of the Lost Generation. Then, Alicia has screen legend and six-time divorcee Hedy Lamarr, whose clever mind gifted us with the concept of “frequency hopping,” which would lead to GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth technology.
