Alan Alda ladies and gentleman. We talk M*A*S*H, joke thievery, his childhood in Burlesque, his ongoing battle with face blindness (that’s not a joke), and how a brush with death gave him a new lease on life. His latest project is a podcast of his own entitled Clear+Vivid.

Show notes:

  • Alan’s podcast, Clear + Vivid, can be found here on iTunes.
  • The *M*A*S*H clip we use comes from this scene.
  • And the Crimes and Misdemeanors tidbit comes from this one.
  • To learn more about Alan visit his website and his Twitter.

The show (and the music) is produced by Dylan Peck, original illustrations by Krishna Shenoi.
