Alan Alda has been in the news a lot lately.
A couple of weeks ago we had the pleasure of speaking with him about his fascinating new podcast called 'Clear and Vivid.'
We all know Alan Alda as the award-winning actor, but his podcast highlights his passion for the science of communication. Clear and Vivid™ is described as "conversations with people who know how hard it is, and yet how good it feels, to really connect with other people."
Alda talked to us about why he decided to go on this new journey and why it is more important than ever to communicate with one another.
Just weeks after the release of his podcast, Alda announced to the world that he has been struggling with Parkinson's Disease for over three years. He decided to come out with the information after observing his shaking hand in one of his television interviews, thinking someone is likely to notice and wanting to get ahead of it. No doubt, a great example of how communication can avoid drama!
