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.

Every episode is amazing

Dax and Monica ask great questions. Evan guests I haven’t heard of I love the conversation and how Dax can ask questions to make every person relatable. Love this show!!!!

Mostly love. Great entertainment.

Dax is great with the long form interview. It’s refreshing to hear a celebrity exhibit a level of intellect and self awareness that is not generally the norm. I’ve been pleasantly surprised, and can say while I’ve always enjoyed Dax as an actor, I enjoy hearing this side of him more. The only reason I knocked off one star - stop referencing Howard Stern’s interviews. I get it, I’m a big fan too, but I want to hear Daxs’ thoughts from his own interviews, not his thoughts from Howard’s interviews.

Monica is a no no

Get rid of Monica is my first suggestion (I know this will never happen but one can only hope). She doesn’t add anything insightful to the conversation, at all. She basically repeats a point Dax has already said. Secondly, I will admit Dax is a smart guy, but I’ve noticed he will make statements as if they’re fact, when they’re completely off base. I’ve noticed this when he brings up certain religions, when he clearly hasn’t been schooled about them. (His “facts” may or may not have been unverified in the fact checking portion of the show, but I wouldn’t know because I won’t listen to Monica’s voice)
