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.

He explains the different types of empathy (emotional, cognitive, and empathic concern), the impact it has on motivation in the workplace, and how self-compassion is a bridge to having compassion for others.

It’s all about Dax

I’ve been listening since the beginning and have really enjoyed the show. However, Dax tends to dominate the conversation by intertwining his own experiences, stories, anecdotes whenever he can. Often times I find myself thinking “I already know this story”. Sometimes I just would like him to give more room to develop the conversation with the guest.

This changed my life

Never heard any podcast before, now I can’t get enough of it, I’ve listened to the Kristen Bell episode for four days straight in repeat and I can’t really stop! This is lit. Love you Dax and thank you ♥️
