Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard

Jul 25 2019 46.5k

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.

Sending Love. You are so brave. It is an honor and a true gift that you do share so much of yourself through your podcast. You are worthy no matter how many days, months, or years you have you are an inspiration. Keep it up PS. I love you Monica and I'd like to hear updates from Monica & Jess love boys too!

Awesome interviews but sometimes the fact check is a hugeeeee time waster

Gave the armchair expert a try after a friend told me to check it out. Was not sure what to expect and have been blown away with Dax! Very good host / interviewer, honest, open, funny & monica is pretty great too.

Started off great, now it just seems overly preachy. They constantly refer to themselves as "evolved". Politics aside, there is so much of a disconnect between them and the average Midwestern person who is trying to make it through their day, and Dax grew up in the midwest. It began as a really good podcast, it's just so hard, for me at least, to find a connection.

Always a joy listening and learning. I always laugh and am charmed by the idiosyncrasies of the hosts. Proud of the group for their evolution and support for each other, it shows and is beloved.

Monica and Dax are genuine souls. They relate their life foibles in such a way that a space for real learning and shared human experience can take place. I have learned so much about how to be vulnerable and live a more contemplative existence because of this podcast and its endearing facilitators.

Thank you so much for sharing. I personally don't have any experience with addiction but I know it has to be difficult to admit when you have a problem.

Armchair Experts is my favorite podcast. Dax is such an intelligent, funny guy. I find his curiosity relatability and knowledge so charming. The episodes featuring Experts are always informative and the celebrity interviews are deep and moving. I think Mr Shepard has found the perfect way to share his gift with us. Monica brings a good balance to the show. Their relationship is great...seems like they're learning right along with us. 5 stars!

Such a fun and informative listen.

Some good insight but filled with A LOT of liberal propaganda and unfair representation of other viewpoints. I'm not sure I've ever heard somebody with less thought-through political and social ideas than Monica. It's almost enough to make me unsubscribe.

Love, love, looove how much Monica and Dax learn from their guests. My favourite part is the fact check, I enjoy their humour and easy flow of their conversations. I even enjoy episodes with people I don't know or am not super familiar with and especially when those guests engage with Monica as well as Dax. Thank you for being a bright place in my day!
