Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard

Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard

Published by: Armchair Umbrella
219 Episodes | First Released: Feb 6 '18 | 🇺🇸
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.

Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard is hosted by: Dax Shepard

Interview with J Eberhardt

Dax—you kept interrupting Dr Eberhardt as she tried to tell us about her experience of getting pulled over. I never feel like I heard the conclusion. We would have benefitted more from her words in that moment versus you discussing your experience of fathering two girls.

Terrific Podcaat

I've been listening for a year and the podcast is always entertaining. The episodes are always interesting and I love the conversational style. It's a great insight into differing viewpoints. Dax and Monica are fabulous in what they do and I'll continue to listen to all of the episodes. Thanks so much for what you guys do.

LOVE

I really love this podcast, such great conversations and funny too. I can also tell Dax has been letting the guest talk more and interrupts less which is awesome. My only minor criticism is Monica’s laugh, my god it really puts me out of the conversation when she laughs.. but apart from that love her too!

Please spell names of BOBs!

I love the podcast and that you shared some black owned businesses on the most recent episode, but please spell out the names of the businesses to make sure people know how to look them up! Took me a while to find Rayo and Honey. Love y’all!

My favorite podcast of all-time!

Love both Monica and Dax! I love experts episodes and the regular episodes. I love to re-listen to episodes. Monica and Dax are so good. I love how vulnerable they are at times and how human they sound! Sometimes the episodes of unorganized and the fact checks are just two friends going back and forth and I think that’s what makes the show so unique. I love it!

Love this podcast!

What is wrong with all of you?! Why are you being so mean about a Woman you don’t even know?! Is it because she’s a woman with opinions?! That’s fine if Monica is not your favorite part of the podcast, but saying mean things about her is only telling of who YOU are as a person. Not her!

Monica makes the show great

I really enjoy her perspective and how her role has become more defined and involved on the show since it’s beginning.

Nina Interview

Could not listen to after 5 minutes. She spoke as if in a manic state.

Zoe Kravitz interview, fact check portion. This was the last one

The fact check portion of this episode was brutal. Dax had great points earned a degree in medicine, should be called a Doctor even though they’re not practicing. Monica adamantly states they should not. MD is an earned title. The job is physician. But they will always be “Doctor”. It was an earned degree. A cheerleader is not an earned degree. People who legitimately identify as something, who are you to take that away from them? I’d love to see her argue with a retired Navy Seal, saying they have no right to refer to themselves as that. “You mean you WERE one.” Listening to Monica, it’s obvious she is young, or young-minded, hasn’t had a lot of life experience. To say she “hates” when the child of your best friends plays pretend is not a mature person. And regarding sports...This is the type of parent who wonders why their once happy child has grown sullen...and is clueless as to why...well it’s bc their whole childhood they’ve heard their parent say Sports is the best and I was a cheerleader and I was amazing and won so you should have the same experience...when all their child wants to do is make music or cook or write or or and feel they are such a disappointment to them. You may not say it, but an attitude speaks volumes. Take heed. To hear her argue with Dax seems like a big brother and baby sister dynamic. I get that. But, as in real life, it’s exasperating to listen to and embarrassing for the one who is not being flexible. Just uncomfortable. Letting fact check go un-listened to for awhile.

Eh...

I used to enjoy this podcast. I frequently overlooked the fact that Monica is completely unlikable. But lately it’s just been feeling really dense. I actually really used to enjoy the “experts” portion, but even that is underwhelming these days. Listen but don’t expect to be hooked, not at this point. Monica, you’re the worst!!

Long time listener first time caller

What I really admire about this podcast is the addition of the experts series. It has introduced me to some names I know but a lot of names I don’t. Also shown me sides I didn’t know like the Vivek Murthy episode, which was so spectacular. Very poignant episode that was on my mind for days. Keep it up!

Ramble

I tried it - downloaded several and started with the Beastie Boys interview. But mostly it was just ramble that could have been any random people going on about nothing and finally when they got lost on babble about cooking wings, I stopped it and deleted them all. No focus and disappointmenting.
