The Bold and the Beautiful and Baywatch have more in common than being international hit series! Recently, two actors who appeared on those shows got together for a serious talk when Jacob Young (ex-Rick, BB) interviewed Baywatch star David Chokachi on Young’s podcast about mental health.

Chokachi appeared as lifeguard Cody Madison on Seasons 6 through 9 of Baywatch. The character was known not only for his skills as a lifeguard but also for being generous, compassionate, and funny. Cody gave up his Olympic dreams in order to complete a rescue, saving someone’s life in the process.
“This is what Real Conversations is all about,” Young posted on Instagram, “@therealdavidchokachi is an inspiration to me, his fans, and everyone who knows him. David, thank you for being so open on the subject of mental health. One interview at a time we will continue to lift the [veil] of shame that society has put upon anyone struggling.
“I promise to not stop talking about it till everyone can openly accept and appreciate the courage it takes for someone to come forward,” the actor adds. “I couldn’t be more proud to have a platform where I can propagate the importance and give a voice to mental health. I want to thank my good friend @thestevefreeman and @empirepodnet for opening my ears to the world of podcasting. Thank you.
“To listen to David’s full interview you can [click here] or you can find my podcast anywhere you can listen to podcasts,” Young concludes. “Special Thanks to my Sponsor @boystown and @ylyv_can_help who continue to do such great works and change lives every single day.
