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.

I love listening to Armchair Expert on my way to and from work. Such fantastic conversations and awesome guests. Well done Dax and Monica :)

Update: I’ve been listening to this Podcast since day one, and I can honestly say that it has improved my life and changed the way that I think about many things. You’ve taught many people around the world what it looks (sounds?) like to be vulnerable and be okay. You’ve also taught people that true friendship is like family - where you can feel secure to be yourself and argue etc without consequence.

Thank you Dax, Monica and of course Rob!

I only started listening to Armchair Expert in September last year, after picking out some of the interviews with people I liked and wanted to listen to. Before I knew it, I was going back through the episode list to listen to more and more. Four months later and I’ve listened to all 171 episodes - can’t get enough! Thank you so much for the engaging and insightful conversation with fascinating people - you’ve made me laugh out loud, cry in some and made me challenge my preconceived notions of certain people and issues. Keep up the great work Dax, Monica and Rob - if you ever bring the live show to Sydney, I’ll be there! ;)
