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.

Dax gets it

Growing up in a home with a single mom there are so many times I am nodding along with Dax. When he described how he felt when Kristin asked him to get her a glass of water I had to stop in my tracks because he explained exactly how I have felt my entire life. It was like I was being understood for the first time in my life!!!

Please stop the vocal fry Monica!!

Ending a sentence in a low croaky voice (a vocal fry) is so irritating and I seriously have to turn off this podcast when Monica starts up with this. It’s very typical of the “millennial voice” and i so wish it would stop!
It feels like Dax is trying to imitate the Owen Wilson nasal, kind of muddy speech as well. In his defense it might just be the way he talks, but it’s not all the time.
Otherwise I’m finding the conversations to be fairly entertaining, though he likes to talk a lot...

Revisited Review

TBH I want to like this podcast but have to agree with a prior reviewer: Dax is kind-of a chauvinist. Saying creepy things to the cohost about wanting to f$&k her grandmother and how she could keep her breasts perky by wearing a bra at night? How is this not a #metoomoment?

Revision: Kept listening and this transgression seemed to be somewhat isolated. He’s a smart, reflective guy and this is worth a listen.
