David 'Goldy' Goldsmith

Season 1, Ep. 15

Today's episode of the Next Page Podcast is an extra special one! Laura and Todd welcome producer, actor, director and comedian, David 'Goldy' Goldsmith to the show to share his amazing journey in the world of entertainment and beyond. In this episode Goldy reveals the complicated and, at times, estranged relationship with his famous father “The Most Interesting Man in the World,” Jonathan Goldsmith, as well as the unique upbringing he experienced with his playboy bunny mother, who is still dating at 91 years old! Goldy’s relationship with both of his entertainment driven parents set the stage for many future challenges and traumas that have taken many years of hard work to overcome. Goldy is so open and honest about his family life and the experiences that shaped him; delving into abandonment, being a “child actor” alongside Joaquin Phoenix, Fred Savage and Drew Barrymore, the impacts of narcissism and how being a parent himself has shaped his view of his own parents, as well as the world! Join us as we unpack Goldy’s relationship with his father (made most famous by his Dos Equis commercial campaign), the improv work that subsequently informed a lot of what he does now and how he has managed to rise above the hardships he’s faced throughout his life. As our listeners know, the process of overcoming trauma is a never-ending journey, and Goldy is such a shining example of the work that is necessary to truly heal and move forward. You really don’t want to miss this beautifully intense conversation, with the one and only David ‘Goldy' Goldsmith!

We get in to the psychological trauma COVID-19 caused (one of Laura's favorite topics!), Samantha’s personal experience with therapy, and how being a voice-over artist is a great escape from the stresses of Nursing.

Sara King – Award Winning Broadway Performer

Season 1, Ep. 18
In today’s episode we sit down with the lovely Ovation Award Winning Broadway Performer Sara King, who is a fierce survivor of trauma in many forms. We talk about what it was like to play Cynthia Weil on Broadway’s Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and Carole seeing the show in full disguise. Outside of her performance career, we learn the heartbreaking story of Sara losing her beloved father to a pulmonary embolism when she was young, her and her siblings watching how her mom navigated the experience and then discovering her mother had a vicious form of cancer, that took her life far too quickly. Following the loss of her parents, many more members of her family began to pass away and the group discusses the effects of compounded grief and how it changes you, for better and worse. Laura and Sara bond over their shared experience of losing so many loved ones, as well as divorce and how it all can build resilience and fortitude, but also give you have a deeper appreciation for life. While the three of them get into some very heavy topics, everyone comes away with a deeper understanding of how hardship can ultimately help you stop and smell the roses! We had such a wonderful time talking to Sara and we know so many people will benefit from hearing her story.
