One of my favorite podcasts, You Must Remember This, has a great episode about Hedy Lamarr. Though she is a very glamorous actress, perhaps one of her best achievements is the technology that led to me being able to write this post today: inventing โ€œa radio-control technology meant for 1940s-era torpedoes, which would ultimately pave the way for cell phones, wifi, bluetooth, and drone warfare.โ€

This episode goes into that and some of the more hollywood side of her history in Star Wars III: Hedy Lamar.
