Episode 5

Lucille Ball - Her life, hometown, and the museum everyone should visit

This week we talk about the "First Lady of Comedy", Lucille Ball. Did you know she was the first leading woman to be pregnant on an American TV show? Or did you know that the I Love Lucy show was the FIRST TV show to use film?

Many people only know her for the I Love Lucy show, but she was SO MUCH MORE. She was an innovator of her time in what she did as a woman on television, in the film industry, and for women at large. She and Desi Arnaz accomplished many "firsts" in the film industry and her influence continues to be felt today with many modern comedians crediting her as inspiration.
