Episode 15

Return to Babylon vs Hedy Lamarr

This week gives us a vintage feel and takes us back to the Roaring Twenties and the Fabulous Forties. Alyssa covers the allegedly cursed film that was never released: “Return to Babylon.” The verdict on whether it’s true or fake is up to you. Kim then tells the story of “the most beautiful woman in the world,” Hedy Lamarr. The young Jewish girl that ditched Nazi Germany to pursue her acting career. Little did everyone know, this beauty was the mastermind behind remote controlled torpedoes; the same technology is used in today’s world through GPS and secure WiFi. #unsunghero
