An actor, writer and Director, Dax Shepard, decided to add ‘overachiever’ to his list of titles as he embarked on his latest creative venture, podcasting. Launching in 2018, his show ‘Armchair Expert’ has interviewed over 85 people, including Chelsea Handler, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jason Mantzoukas and Dr.Phil, whereby Shepard and his guest explores the messiness of being human.
‘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’, states Shepard.
When discussing what people can expect from his shows he says, ‘I explore other people’s stories...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, and Armchair Expert.’
