Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard

Reviews For Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard

Can we please have "my best friend Aaron weakly" as the next guest?!?
I did not want to like this podcast. The only things I’ve ever seen Dax in was a commercial for I believe a washing machine and I believe Ellen. Nothing against the guy - I’ve scrolled past his podcast when reviewing the charts searching for something to listen to while at work. I’d see ‘Dax Shepard’ and roll my eyes. Today when scrolling I saw the Amy Schumer episode and thought ‘what the hell?’ My only regret was not giving this podcast a chance before now. The questions and back and forth with Amy was very entertaining. Just listened to the David Sedaris episode - I’m now a fan and looking forward catching up on all episodes. If you are like me and been passing this podcast by - give it a chance - you’ll be surprised.
Short review - this podcast is awesome. They’re mini therapy sessions and hilarious stories in episode form. I think the #1 thing I love most about this podcast is that it’s taught me to be more open about my life and feelings. Especially how you felt/handled certain life events. You’ll be surprised that a lot of other people have gone through similar emotions. It’s also really cool to find out similarities with celebrities! It really has opened me up to being more vocal! You also learn so much about these actors. I love hearing about how they got to where they are now.
directionless conversations of charismatic famous people. No bigger goal or theme behind the episodes. There isn’t a lot of take always or growth from listening. Without a crescendo of conversation I’m just frustrated feeling like I’ve listened to my distant acquaintances at a party talk on subjects they know minimally but speak confidently on. Improvement could be made in creating stronger outcomes for conversations. What is trying to be revealed about the guest and those experience? I’m here for it. Dax does acknowledge ignorance and is charmingly self effacing but repeatedly speaks invasively from his own limited perspective. If there was a purpose, a takeaway, an understanding to be gained from the conversations then I think the host would grow in his role and the listener would learn too. Better questions, stronger backwards planning, intentional conversations.

Great podcast Dax is sooo ON. he just gets it and is so hilarious..
Dax does an impeccable job of getting his star studded cast to open up and be more vulnerable. It’s a great reminder that the stars we glorify in life are human just like us, dealing with similar insecurities just like everyone else
Hands down. The best podcast out there. Yes, Dax does looooove to talk about himself and sometimes talks over his guests. However, he’s just barely funny and loveable enough to get away with it. The guests are ridiculously amazing and Monica and her fact check is ingenious. Love you guys to pieces.
You both are SO fantastic and brighten my week! But today listening to the Amy Schumer episode I had an epiphany as to one of the many reasons I find this podcast so great. You both are constantly open to opposing ideas and having constructive conversations to become better people. For example Dax’s realization that his point about women was similar to the “all lives matter movement”. I feel every strongly about feminist issues, but after leaving many conversation with specifically men I feel defeated and that my point never effectively gets across. I have had a really hard time conveying why exactly it is so much more different for women than men, and why it matters to talk about it. Dax’s moment of realization really cleared up for me what I’m having such a hard time getting across, that I’m not devaluing the life of men. But saying we matter too, and that it is in fact harder to be a women in this world. So thank you for keeping an open mind, and having these tuff conversations. You talking about this may be to help you stay aware, but by sharing it can help the rest of us better convey the way we feel. Keep doing what you’re doing.
I’ve been listening for a while but the Amy Schumer episode just cemented for me how excellent and thoughtful this podcast is. The honesty and insight is very special. Keep up the great work!

Hilarious and smart. Love this podcast.
Dax is amazing with whoever he is interviewing. He makes his guests so comfortable that they speak from the heart. Dax is amazingly funny It’s fantastic. Monica is lovely.
Dax is one of the best podcast hosts I've ever heard. He adds wisdom, humor, insight, and perspective to each show. And I've found the majority of his guests fascinating. Love the honesty in this podcast!
The way Dax Shepard engages his guests & the way his guests respond makes the listener feel as though you could just stroll on over to the attic & hang on the couch for a chat. Most episodes are a delightful mix of comedic banter & discussion of self actualization. My favorites episodes have been Nick Kroll, Jason Bateman, Kristen Bell, & I’m currently enjoying the Chris Hardwick episode. It’s great to hear the podcast evolve; I look forward to more & more episodes & hope Monica & Dax will come visit us in good ‘ol Florida!
Dax is amazingly funny. Love this podcast.
Love the podcast, my favorite part is the fact checks too.
I love love lovedddd the live episode! The whole shoe is always great but I loved the vibe from the live show
I savor this podcast as a perfect elixir for my Monday commute from New Hampshire into Boston. I wish I had it everyday to pass the long ride. I subscribe to several dozen podcasts and this one is one of my favorites.
This is not really a review, so much as an observation. Has anyone else noticed how much Michael from American Horror Story: Apocalypse looks like Dax?! I’m completely distracted every time I watch.
You were one of the first podcasters I listened it and it made me become interested in doing my own. Your interview style is loosey goosey and full of wild, interesting, off the cuff stuff and I love it. Thanks for being me and letting us along for the ride you take with your guests.
1st pod cast I’ve listened to. I love you and Monica!!! Keep em coming!
Dax thinks he is way funnier than he actually is. I’m also tired of hearing him talk about how much money he spends on his cars and chartering private airplanes. Do something worth while with your money please!
👏🏼❤️👏🏼❤️👏🏼
I love this podcast, even if I’m not familiar with the guest. Dax has mastered the art of interviewing others and always keeps it interesting. It is refreshing to listen to him and his guests. I’ve even listened to the same guests in other podcast interviews, and the other podcast host cannot get out of the guest, what Dax can. Thanks for a great podcast!
Love this pod cast!!! Every episode is my new favorite!!!
Dax and Monica provide the perfect mix of intellectual stimulation and entertainment. The guests are at ease and reveal the most relatable moments to inspire. Experts on Expert are my favorite and are not to be missed. Dax has the rare ability to be vulnerable, without creating listener discomfort, and provide comic relief. The Home Depot story is not to be missed!
My wife started me on this podcast. We were fans of Parenthood. I am a dad and love listening to your shows everything is relatable. You are a tremendously talented host.
Dax, you are endearing, honest, so articulate, insightful, and funny. You make all of your guests shine! You seem like a very kind, soulful, and genuine person. Your giggle is contagious and I appreciate the hard work you put in to manage your addiction. Bring your chair to Chicago
I love Armchair Expert and I wish there was a new episode everyday! I have a lengthy commute and work long hours in a design studio so I love having Dax and Monica with me to break up the work day. Their interviews and conversations make me think, laugh, and has even changed my perspective on situations. I love these two (and hehe- I find myself secretly wishing that I could become famous so I can go on AE and chat with my two favorite people)!
Generally I like the podcast and thoroughly enjoy most episodes, however, they need to be cut down. 2 hours is just way too long. I also usually cut out before listening to the fact check so a suggestion there is to separate it out and include it as a bonus episode or something?
I was looking for a new podcast while on vacation and found Dax! i’m only a few episodes in but I just had to write and let you know how much i’m enjoying it so far! Keep up the great interviews!:)
I understand that Dax and his wife have made millions and they’re successful in their acting careers, but that does not mean that they are interesting. Hearing Dax’s wife for the second time on the show sealed the deal for me. She reminds me of every annoying, bossy little girl that I knew in grade school. And Dax, dude go back to your roots. You weren’t raised to be the Hollywood, Propecia using sissy that you’ve become. Suffice to say, Anthropology! Craig
I write reviews, okay?
Sometimes I can’t tell the difference between voices. Sometimes Dax sounds like the guys, sometimes Monica sounds like the girls, I had an especially hard time with the Kristen Bell episode because they sound so similar and the whole ep was so conversational that there weren’t clear pauses or queues to pick up on. I have no idea how to fix the situation - maybe put The Guest on a different type mic or something so it’s easy to differentiate. Otherwise. I love this podcast, listen to it all the time walking my dog. Love the introspective on life.
I look forward to the new episode (or episodes 😉) being released every week. They are wildly entertaining and make my time in the car fly by!
I love this podcast! It’s an all around good time. It is also so interesting and thought provoking. I love that they talk to entertainers and experts on different subjects. Its got something for everyone.
Always entertaining and I’m learning a lot more about your world thank you so much for the laughs maybe I’ll see you at the dunes
I like that I don’t have to wait for 1 episode per week. They seem to make pod casts available as they are completed and it’s awesome to hear new content more than ones a week. But I do have to say Monica and Dax relationship is kinda awkward. I just rather focus on the content. 👍🏻
So- I had zero expectation on my first listen. I know I differ in beliefs from Dax and honestly, I typically listen to mostly Christian themed, or at leased based podcasts. I LOVE this podcast. I am a personal development nerd and really love the way Dax has clearly done a lot of growth on himself. He is thoughtful, articulate and funny! He says lots of things I have said and/or thought myself that no one else seems to get.
I really enjoy this podcast, but there’s no mention of Monica anywhere on the podcast website. They need to give her more credit. Especially after Kristen Bell’s episode, it seems like she’s really integral to the show and their lives.
That’s a lie. I’m fully obsessed. Dax and Monica are podcast perfection! I’ve never looked forward to Monday morning more than I do now.

Dax and Monica make Monday mornings working from home much more fun! Entertaining and informative. I am for sure an arm cherry!
This podcast is quite funny yet shows the human side to many of the actors and actresses Dax interviews. Dax also shares his struggles with alcoholism and his difficult childhood. Very impressive. I also now purchase the pasture raised eggs they advertise from Target. Glad to see them advertise something that is affordable and a positive influence of the care of hens.
Awesome on many different levels! This is a staple in my week! 😃

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️!!!!!
I love the show! I love how Dax can always look at both sides of most situations! And admit when he's wrong! And I love love Iove Monica!! She just seems like a really genuine person! And Kristen Bell's 2nd episode when she was talking about losing Monica or feeling like she was losing her. That made me very emotional! Very real!!! I also got my best friend hooked and she is also obsessed with Monica and the show!!
I am not a tabloid or celeb news guy. I love that Dax talks to celebrities like you’d talk to your buddies. Helped me realize we are all messed up & especially the most successful people messed up a lot! Also, Dax & Monica have a tremendous chemistry together and I like that they are usually disagreeing with each other rather than rubber stamp agreeing
This podcast is so funny and real and engrossing. My only wish is to be more like Dax and Kristian, who are so wonderful and intelligent!
I love this podcast so much so that I binged it within the past couple of weeks. I am surprised by Dax and how easygoing he is within the interview setting. He makes the interview seem extremely lighthearted & I truly feel like I am getting an insight into the lives of the various celebrities that are on the show. I also enjoy that Dax attempts to avoid political conversation, considering we are forced to hear it everywhere else. It is occasionally brought up in an episode, but Dax does a pretty good job of including the perspective of other views outside of his own (outside of the Jon Favreau episode) and that makes it bearable for the brief amount of time that the conversation is on the table. Nonetheless, I cannot get enough of this podcast & will continue to be a fan & making sure everyone knows that this podcast exist!
Each time I listen to this podcast, I really walk away evaluating my life, current and past, my interactions with family and friends and dig into what makes me ... well me. Everything about this podcast feels authentic and it’s so refreshing. We think celebrities are so different from ourselves and we forget that they are all dealing with the same things we are. My only complaint is that there is only one a week with a few exceptions. I’m hoping that as the popularity of the podcast continues to grow we will get several podcasts a week. Keep up the great work Dax and Monica, it’s been a fabulous ride and I’m looking forward more! A++++
