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’ve recommended his podcast twice today!

I thought I should pop in to leave a review because I’ve sent out links twice today, specifically to the interview with the surgeon general. I’ve been listening for a long time and it’s always so interesting!

My favorite

This has become my favorite podcast. I love how authentic and open Dax is. He is also a great interviewer. I also like that Monica has her own voice and perspective and is not intimidated to share it. The interviews of celebrities are interesting but I love that they mix it up with people from other disciplines and walks of life. Thanks for sharing a part of yourself with us. Keep on keeping on!!

Winning Podcast

Dax brings a refreshingly human perspective to everything in life - relationships, mental health, overcoming struggles - with the added benefit of sharing some simple yet profound words of wisdom. At times it feels like riding the coattails of his anthropology studies, work in AA and therapy sessions, and I mean that in the best possible way: Dax has the experience and perspective to make us all better humans. I’m not exaggerating when I say Dax has already helped me live a happier life in just four episodes because of the little shifts in perspective I’ve been able to make after listening to him and his guests.

Thank you so much to Dax and the team for making this podcast! It’s by far my favorite.

Update: Dr. Nadine Burke Harris’ Experts on Expert episode is THE BEST. Such a thoughtful conversation and Dr. Harris is incredibly knowledgeable and qualified.
