Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
Hi, I’m Dax Shepard, and I love talking to people. I am endlessly fascinated by the messiness of being human, and I find people who are vulnerable and honest about their struggles and shortcomings to be incredibly sexy. I invite you to join me as I explore other people’s stories. We will celebrate, above all, the challenges and setbacks that ultimately lead to growth and betterment. What qualifies me for such an endeavor? More than a decade of sobriety, a degree in Anthropology and four years of improv training. I will attempt to discover human “truths” without any laboratory work, clinical trials or data collection. I will be, in the great tradition of 16th-century scientists, an Armchair Expert.

"Dax is just famous enough to be able to entertain big Hollywood and pop culture celebs, but still enough of a regular dude that you’re able to relate to him. He asks great questions and digs great stories out of his guests. There’s a lot of narcotics anonymous talk, as it is a big part of who he is, but it helps to illustrate what it’s like to be a celebrity. "
"My all time favorite pod cast!! Found them during Covid and been listening ever since. I love the variety of people and topics. They are my go to when I’m in my car. Love the transparency from Dax and Monica. Haven’t found a pod cast I like better. "
"Dax has a way of getting to the nitty gritty. His personal willingness to be open and honest bring out the same. Laugh out loud funny a times( Fact Check w Monica... omg) always interesting and informative! Check out who he has had on and prepare to be informed, enlightened and challenged in your thinking "
"I dont know whatbit is about this podcast, but I look forward to every episode. Topics are as varied as the contents in a whole library. But, the friendship and genuine curiousity of Dax and Monica feels familiar and genuine. They put it all out there and, thankfully, they seem to endeavor to learn everything about everything and record as they go. From Yuval Harari & BillG, to Bill Hader, and everyone you have ever wanted to listen and talk to for 2:15. Epicly engaging."
