Hi, Dax Shepard here. I’m fascinated by smart people with a unique point of view. On this show, I leverage people’s vague awareness of me as an actor to talk with a bunch of bona fide experts. It’s a soothing mix of brain candy and defensive humor (my response to feeling intellectually outclassed). Join me on a layman’s journey through the Land of Specialists!

Best pod cast ever

I can’t get enough of Dax and Monica! Love the interviews and dialogue in general which are always a great mix of intellect and comedy. I feel like I learn, laugh, and even get some therapy in. Good stuff!!!

Monica contributes zero.

Poor Bill Nye couldn’t get a word in. You talked over him the entire time. Your “favorite part of the show” is bickering with the always offended Monica, so I’m not really sure why you have guests. Monica is your favorite part and you don’t let anyone else talk, so I guess you could/should just stop having a podcast.

Sober and smart!

At nearly 35 years of sobriety and as an active member of the fellowship, I listen to Dax with admiration and pride. If I were younger, I could even be in love! He rightly and measurably weaves his experience of recovery through the spiritual principles of AA into his podcast narratives and interviews. Each time he does so, he performs a public service. Teaching “normies”—particularly medical professionals—how it is to live with an addict’s brain and psychology is a vital aspect of this podcast. But it’s not simply that he shares his experience, it’s that he does so humbly as a way to expand comprehension of a given topic. There’s no “gratuitous” inserting. Dax reveals not just how one sees the world through this lens, he also unfolds the hard work, research, and focus he places on his responsibility to stay on the path. I’m drawn to his brilliant conversational style and ability, and I encourage other listeners to tune in. Good things come from this podcast. Bravo!
