Description

Hi, Dax Shepard here. I’m fascinated by smart people with a unique point of view. On this show, I leverage people’s vague awareness of me as an actor to talk with a bunch of bona fide experts. It’s a soothing mix of brain candy and defensive humor (my response to feeling intellectually outclassed). Join me on a layman’s journey through the Land of Specialists!

I totally agree with Johann Hari.After being a heroin addict myself for 12 years, the only thing that has changed my life after multiple rehabs and prison time was with medication assistance being Methodone. How we are currently fighting addiction in this country IS NOT WORKING! Awesome episode Dax!! #Lifechanging
