Armchair Expert is a weekly podcast hosted by American actor, director, and writer Dax Shepard and Emmy-nominated Monica Padman. Each podcast features Shepard and Padman interviewing celebrities as well as journalists and academics about "the messiness of being human.[1]" The podcast premiered February 14, 2018, with Shepard's wife, actress Kristen Bell, as the first guest, and has gone on to become one of the most popular and well-received podcasts.[2][3] Shepard and Padman have also taken their podcast on the road, filming episodes in front of live audiences.[4][5]

History[edit]

Armchair Expert was launched "on a lark" after Shepard's experiences as a guest on other podcasts appreciating the length of time the format allowed, compared with the typical brief segment on a talk show.[6] Armchair Expert was the most downloaded new podcast of 2018 on iTunes.[7] Shepard's goal is to give people the "experience of an AA meeting without them having to become a drunk".[8] He states that he is qualified to host a podcast from his "decade of sobriety, degree in Anthropology, and four years of improv training."[9] Podcasts are recorded in Shepard's guest house attic, each being released on Mondays and Thursdays. Shepard is assisted by co-host Monica Padman, who "fact checks" him at the end of each episode from a different perspective.[6] The episodes typically run two hours in length.[10]
