*More information on the voicemail message:

Alan is happy to answer your phone when you can’t. Once you subscribe to the $45 tier, our team will reach out to you via email for you to pick which voicemail message you would like. You have a choice of two styles for your voicemail message:

Straightforward and conventional:
“Hi. This is Alan Alda. [Your name] can’t answer the phone right now, but leave a message and you’ll get a call back as soon as possible. Wait for the beep.”


A little spunky and unconventional:
“Hi. This is Alan Alda. [Your name] has no interest in talking on the phone right now. Probably busy listening to my podcast. But leave a message and it’s entirely possible you’ll get a callback. Wait for the beep.”

Choose your style and within a few days, we’ll email you a new message for your phone.

We’re sorry, we can’t do customized messages.

About Clear and Vivid with Alan Alda

Welcome to our Patreon page!

If you're not a patron of ours yet, I hope you'll consider becoming one. Your patronage helps support our show and directly funds the vital work we do around the world at The Alda Center for Communicating Science . On top of that, it gives us both a chance to get closer to our Clear + Vivid community. If you enjoy the show, it’s a way to make the Clear + Vivid podcast experience even more vivid!

We have a level of participation for every budget, and we’ve made each level a valuable and fun experience. I think you’ll enjoy it.

Looking forward to getting together with you on Patreon,
