Mayim Bialik, also a neuroscientist, announces podcast on mental health
Mayim Bialik needs no introduction for American sitcom fans. She is THE Amy we all know and have grown up loving with The Big Bang Theory. The actor is now working on a project beyond her on-screen career and for the greater good. Bialik, who holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience, has launched a podcast where she will be talking about mental health.
Welcoming her audience from the comforts of a studio, where she'd be doing the podcast, Bialik said, "It's gonna be informative, helpful, interactive, and fun!" One of the most important takeaways the 45-year-old mentioned was that she wouldn't be prescribing or suggesting medications but rather share coping mechanisms of different health issues faced by herself, her family, and her guests on upcoming episodes.
"A lot of you may know me from The Big Bang Theory or Blossom, but some of you may not know I studied neuroscience for 12 years," said Bialik, after which the screen flashed the new poster for the podcast titled Mayim Bialik's Breakdown. The actor created a jovial environment while introducing co-host Jonathan Cohen, who is also the executive producer of the podcast.
Bialik also highlighted the light-hearted mood of her podcast as she said that she'd be teasing Cohen's Canadian origin in every episode. Establishing why the show deserves attention, Bialik, who will next be seen in Call Me Kat, said that she'll be discussing the mental health history of her family, as she introduced viewers to several wall-hanging photographs of her ancestors inside the studio.
While elaborating about her family, Bialik said that her kin were war survivors and mania, anxiety, eating disorder, suicidal tendencies have affected them abundantly. On her show, experts in the said field and people from celebrity circles, who are fighting issues such as drug abuse, sobriety, anxiety, depression, etc., will also be invited for giving insights. The podcast will start airing from January 13.
