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.

Where was this gem hiding?!

A podcast with frank real talk!

They fact check, they have great points of self reflection. Keep it up, please interview Russel Brand :)

Insight and Honesty from Hosts

AE was the first podcast to be solid enough (for me) to start listening intentionally - not just using them as background noise. The ongoing self-reflection (and the times he misses the mark without noticing it) makes Dax human: and as a human is often mucked up. His honest and insightful approach to recovery, family, career - along with all his hang ups, make him relatable and genuine. As someone who hangs out in church basements every week, like Dax, I am grateful to hear his message and how the outcomes of walking twelve steps for long enough can seep into the rest of your life.

Love how his guests open up - freely - without what sounds like pressure; instead, a real desire to get know them - the full them.

Monica of course rocks too boot.
