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.

My favorite

My favorite podcast. Dax does not put on a persona. He presents his real self with all his faults. We can all relate.

Every episode. Every time.

From the most serious to the silliest, every interview broadens my mind and helps me see a new perspective. I can’t get enough!

What they do they do well

But I have to say the live shows are brutal. I like the intimacy of the attic. I don't want to hear a group of millennials...you know the ones...the ones that have time to go to a live podcast and cheer like it's beatles mania.
Some of the negative reviews on here are ridiculous though. I can't believe how this country is suddenly full of people with a victim mentality. It's pathetic.
Speaking of victim mentality... You shouldn't have self-proclaimed "victims" as guests like Nadine Burke Harris who is a privileged elite who vacations with her unruly children and then pulls the race card when a local doesn't appreciate her privileged antics.
