David 'Goldy' Goldsmith
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!
