Throughout the years I’ve dabbled in various forms of intellectual stimulation. From Malcom Gladwell’s statistically erotic books (yes, erotic to me), Popular Science Magazine’s insightful articles and Seth Godin’s treasure Linchpin. But I have yet to completely obsess over a master until The Armchair Expert. I pop these podcasts like Skittles.
Mr. Dax Shepard is the creator of this podcast. He delightfully interviews celebrities, intellects, and his own family members. Prior to listening to Armchair Expert I’d been happily entertained by onscreen characters he played, never realizing how epic his own life’s journey has been and his stellar knack for authentically interviewing people.
Listening to these episodes has not only grown dentrities in my noggin but also opened my eyes up into understanding my own quirky self. Did you know if you can down a big cup of caffeinated joe and fall asleep after you may have adult ADHD? Yup, that’s me. Or that even celebrities have battled grouse personal problems like teenage bed wetting; sorry Sarah Silverman. *FYI, some of this may need fact checking.
Aside from these fun tidbits there’s a handful of life wisdom told thru courageous stories. Like Ellen’s drive to never give up even after tragedy and Brene Brown’s dive into vulnerability and her personal battle with addiction. I could go on and on but I think you get it, it’s epic.
On top of the content, is a notable back story. Prior to this podcast Dax was already a recognized actor and part of a power couple in Hollywood. Regardless he chose to step forward with another version of himself, a podcast captain. A successful one at that. What I like about this is that no matter who you are, you’re ever evolving. No matter what age or profession or whatever we have the ability to evolve into a new version of ourselves whenever. This is beautiful.
So saddle up partner and join me on this armchair ride. You’ll want to kick the foot rest out and stay for a while.
