Welcome to The Not Old Better Show. I’m Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode #476.

As part of our Smithsonian Associates Healthy Living series, we’ve got two great interviews, back to back.

Hopefully you’ve already heard episode #474, with Dr. Anthony Fauci, and today we’re so fortunate to speak with Actor Alan Alda, host of the Clear+Vivid podcast and co-founder of the Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, knows his way around sharing tough scientific topics in clear and engaging ways. Together, they are a perfect pairing to parse the intricacies of the virus that has held us in sway since March.

Join me for part 2 with Alan Alda, and join both of them for an evening of thoughtful, informative discussion on the topic gripping the country at Smithsonian Associates Sept 23, 2020. There’s also an opportunity for a Q&A session after the conversation.

Please welcome to The Not Old Better Show via internet phone, Alan Alda.

My thanks to Alan Alda for his work, and willingness to join us today. My thank, as well, to the wonderful Smithsonian team for all they do to support the show. My thanks to you, our wonderful Not Old Better Show audience. Remember, stay safe everyone, practice smart social distancing, and Talk About Better. The Not Old Better Show. Thanks, everybody.
