My guest is best known as Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan on the hit television show, "M*A*S*H." We start by discussing her love for painting, and her passion for animal rights, and how that came together in her book, "SwitHeart." Then we discussed how she developed her "Hot Lips" character, growing her to be a "feminist in the 50's before they even coined the word," as well as other recollections of her role on the show.
