Most people know Mayim Bialik for playing Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler on the large Bang Theory and for sharing Jeopardy! Hosting duties with Ken Jennings.
She’s also the host of Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown, a podcast focusing on psychological state and wellness issues. But you’ll not know that the actress is currently dating Jonathan Cohen, the co-host and executive producer of the podcast.
How Bialik And Cohen Met?
According to MBB‘s official website, Bialik and Cohen met at a kid’s birthday celebration over a decade ago. They connected through their shared interest in understanding psychological state and emotional well-being.
At the time, Mayim was married to Michael Stone for roughly a decade and had two sons together with her ex-husband — Frederick and Miles.
When Bialik announced her split from Stone in 2012 (after nine years of marriage), the mom of two made it clear she took the separation very seriously.
“Divorce is very sad, painful, and incomprehensible for youngsters. it’s not something we have decided lightly,”. “The main priority for us now’s to make the transition to two loving homes as smooth and painless as possible. Our sons deserve parents committed to their growth and health, and that’s what we specialize in .”
While we don’t know exactly when Bialik and Cohen reconnected and began dating, we realize it was years after her divorce.
In 2018, Bialik penned a post for Grok Nation during which she talked openly about a breakup she went through with someone who was not Jonathan Cohen. So we all know the pair got together sometime between 2018 and 2021.
The Co-Host A Podcast Together
Bialik and Cohen dropped the primary episode of Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown in January of 2021.
The actress has been open about her struggles with her psychological state. She says that she and her beau were inspired to start the podcast after dealing with all the emotional difficulties of the pandemic.
“To be honest, 2020 was a beast of a year, and my partner Jonathan and I have a shared passion for mental illness and mental illness education,” she said during a 2021 interview with Forbes.
“So more people have either encountered mental health challenges, or they were experiencing intense anxiety for the first time in their life. Numerous people didn’t even know what to call it, what it was, or what you could do about it. So we decided to start a podcast.”
In addition to being Bialik’s main squeeze, Cohen is very qualified to co-host Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown. He features a Master of Fine Arts degree and over 20 years of training in mindfulness and healing.
He co-founded Lotic AI, a behavior change company that fuses technology and mental well-being. He’s also a dad and, therefore, the founder of The Stories Company, which” uses storytelling, media, technology, and style to model probable futures.”
The podcast’s website describes him as a “writer, poet, producer, father and futurist who imagines and styles new applications of technology.”
Those who watch Mayim Bialik on Jeopardy! might not know much about who The Big Bang Theory star is dating — but those who know Mayim from her popular mental-health podcast Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown certainly do.
In February 2021, the 45-year-old actress and television host told Forbes she had a “partner,” and it happens to be her podcast cohost Jonathan Cohen (not to be confused with the actor of the identical name).
Per Mayim’s Breakdown website, Jonathan holds a Master of Fine Arts degree and is the podcast’s executive producer. His bio describes him as a “writer, poet, producer, father and futurist who imagines and styles new applications of technology.”
What’s more, Jonathan is the founder of The Stories Company and cofounder of “Lotic AI, a behavior change system seeking to attach the mind and the body.”
On Instagram, fans have expressed their support for the couple. “Y’all are cute!” one fan said. “You two are hilarious!” another said. “Love you guys,” a special fan declared.
As those that either listen to or watch Breakdown can easily glean, Jonathan and Mayim get along rather well. Their podcast helped them through the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
“To be honest, 2020 was a beast of a year, and my partner Jonathan [Cohen] and I have a shared passion for mental illness and mental illness education,” Mayim told Forbes. “The idea [of the podcast is] to explore all the aspects of psychological state that many of us are not told about.”
