Learn to connect better with others in every area of your life. Immerse yourself in spirited conversations with people who know how hard it is, and yet how good it feels, to really connect with other people – whether it’s one person, an audience or a whole country. You'll know many of the people in these conversations – they are luminaries in our culture. Some you may not know. But what links them all is their powerful ability to relate and communicate. It's something we need now more than ever.
I adore Alan Alda. That's what I wanted to hear his podcast. I've seen him on late night talk shows and I know he has a passion for science. I expected this podcast to be more science-based. While the intro was professionally produced with superior audio quality. Maybe I expected him to come out and hit me with some science fact over the head, but when he interviews Itzhak Perlman (who I am also a fan of, he can seriously shred on the violin) the show sounded like another celebrity show where they interview celebrities. Granted, I listened to the first three minutes, but that's the point of this show. Alan is 82, and when he does what I will call the “calm, soothing, NPR voice” he sounds, um, 82. I didn't expect the energy of a morning zoo, and I didn't tune into the Hawkeye Pierce show, but I did need to come to grips that one of my favorite actors is 82. This also makes me happy as he may bring in an older demographic to the podcasting space.
I think he named his podcast wrong and nobody is going to type clear+vivid. They will type in clear and vivid. Luckily, he is Alan Alda and can get away with this because people can type in Alan Alda.
In the end, I'm not sure how I feel about this show. It's not what I expected, and because it is Alan Alda I will listen to the rest of the interview.
