Alan Alda is the host of a podcast called Clear+Vivid with Alan Alda. He became well known for his role as Captain Benjamin Franklin ‘Hawkeye’ Pierce in M*A*S*H. There will be a M*A*S*H reunion on Clear+ Vivid with Alan Alda.
Clear+Vivid with Alan Alda is described on Apple Podcasts as:
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.
It continues to point out that the people interviewed by Alan Alda are “luminaries in our culture. What links them all is their powerful ability to relate and communicate It’s something we need now more than ever.”
Alan Alda was interviewed in WTOP. During the interview, he revealed that an upcoming episode of Clear+Vivid with Alan Alda will feature a cast reunion from TV’s M*A*S*H. It will be a first of its kind reunion of the M*A*S*H gang in the digital age. Alan Alda said:
“We were going to record it [on Nov. 14], but we had to postpone it because Jamie Farr … almost lost his house in the [California] fire. Loretta Swit and I will be talking from New York, Mike Farrell will be in a studio in L.A., Jamie Farr will be on the phone from his house in Bell Canyon, and Gary Burghoff will be on the phone from Northern California.”
Loretta Swit played Maj. Margaret ‘Hot Lips’ Houlihan. Mike Farrell played Capt. B.J. Hunnicutt. Jamie Farr played Cpl. Maxwell Q. Klinger. Gary Burghoff played Cpl Walter ‘Radar’ O’Reilly. It seems fitting to have the reunion of M*A*S*H on a podcast that is about really connecting with other people. The show was extremely popular and many people connected to it.
