Loving Right Now: Armchair Expert

When it comes to celebrity crushes, I have a few. The Rock, obviously. Chris Pratt, when he’s being a superhero. And Dax Shepard. There are more, but they fluctuate according to what I’m watching.

I first started my Dax crush when I saw Without a Paddle.

That movie, by the way, is still one of my favorites and I literally cry with laughter every time I see it. He’s super cute, tall, hilarious, really earnest and smart, oh and he is married to Kristen Bell. They are basically everyone’s idea of #couplegoals, because of how funny and honest they are about their lives together and their relationship. At least, the part of it they share on social media.

So, when I saw that he started a podcast called Armchair Expert I was like, um hell no. I’m not a podcast person.

But then, he kept posting about the guests that would be joining him each week, and I still thought. Nope, that sounds cool… but still not a podcast person.

And then, one day on my 90 minute drive to work I couldn’t find any good music to listen to. All of the radio stations were disappointing me, I was bored of my Pandora offerings and I really need to update my iPhone music playlist. So, I decided to throw on the Armchair Expert podcast episode where Dax interviews Ellen DeGeneres.

And it was SOOOO GOOOD.

I turned it up and listened hard to every single moment of that show. Then, because the last 10 minutes stuck in my head for the next few days, I commented on his Instagram… and he liked my comment AND RESPONDED!

And then, it still stuck in my head so I made my husband listen to the last 10 minutes of the podcast and then we talked about it for 30+ more minutes.

I figured, if I liked that episode maybe, just maybe, I’d try another one. So, I listened to the Armchair Expert with Anna Faris (crush #2’s soon-to-be ex-wife, and superstar of her own right). And it was really good too.

There are 11 episodes so far, and I’ve only had the chance to listen to 2 of them… but now it’s totally on my ‘to do’ list for long workday car rides. Without Jack in the car, because there is some salty language.

While I still can’t say I’m a podcast person, I can say that I’m an Armchair Expert podcast person. And I *might* branch out and try Anna Faris’ podcast too when I run out of episodes. Maybe.

Do you listen to Armchair Expert? Are you a “podcast” person?

  1. Same! I did listen to the Serial podcast, about a year after everyone else (and my kid just did because of a school assignment…wha?) but otherwise I just can’t seem to get into podcasts. Now you have me intrigued…perhaps I’ll check this one out.

  2. I’ve been meaning to tune in also. I love Dax and Kristin! I don’t typically listen to podcasts either, but seems like this would be a good one!

  3. I also started listening to podcasts because of this podcasts and LOVE It. His episode with kristen bell is my favorite. and he liked my comment on his insta post and I flipped out!
    I wouldn’t say i have a crush on him but I want to hang out with him!
