  • Our first guest is one of our favorites.

  • He's the host of the very successful podcast the Armchair

  • Expert.

  • Please welcome our friend, Dax Shepard.

  • How long does it take most guests

  • to get used to Andy over your shoulder?

  • I don't know he is the devil or the angel.

  • Have you figured that out?

  • Well, yeah, he's a little bit of both.

  • First of all, I want to talk about everything

  • that's going on right now in the country as we tape this.

  • This is airing later, so who knows what's happening?

  • But I think it's important to address it,

  • because we don't know what's happening as this airs.

  • But you and Kristen have always been open and honest

  • about everything.

  • Do you want to share your thoughts?

  • Yeah, you know, similarly, I, too,

  • put out a show twice a week, so we

  • had a regular thing scheduled.

  • Alanis Morissette was going to be on.

  • And then we were contemplating whether that was appropriate

  • and then deciding, well, what should we put out?

  • And then scrambling to find someone

  • that could help us navigate what the productive outcome of all

  • this would be, so looking for experts

  • that specialize in race, and then

  • just taking a ton of inventory personally

  • as I'm sure we're kind of all doing.

  • And I have a lot of thoughts on it.

  • We've talked about it a ton on the podcast, which is--

  • the initial phrase white privilege kind of triggered me.

  • Because when you look at that great video of the people

  • on the line in the race and take a step forward, take a step

  • forward, if your parents were married,

  • take a step forward, if you have food security,

  • take a-- all these things.

  • Well, I certainly wasn't taking a step forward

  • for a lot of those as were a lot of my friends growing up.

  • So I thought, well, I'm not advantaged.

  • I had a food insecurity, violent stepdad, all these things,

  • and I really missed what my privileges were.

  • And I've come to really understand it, and accept it,

  • and try to explore more and more what that means.

  • And I'd say the most obvious thing

  • is I'm super open and honest about being an addict.

  • For years and years, I traveled around LA

  • with drugs on my person, high.

  • I bought drugs.

  • I was drunk often.

  • I've met hundreds of other guys in the program

  • I'm in that are black, and those guys went to jail.

  • And I would have gone to jail.

  • I would have gone to prison.

  • There is no question about it.

  • You can't drive through Beverly Hills

  • and know you're not going to get pulled over if you're black.

  • You know, just recognizing like, oh, I

  • have a much different life.

  • I would have definitely spent time in prison,

  • and then it doesn't stop there.

  • Sure, I could have had a rough beginning

  • and a ton of challenges.

  • But ultimately, my safety is not at risk because of it,

  • and I can transcend it.

  • If I go to interview at a company,

  • it's still going to favor me, you know?

  • We all have challenges, but being black

  • is never going to be a challenge I have and many of us

  • will never have.

  • And we led into this problem and are

  • in the problem of COVID-19, where black and brown people

  • were sick and dying from it at a level higher than white people.

  • Everything is not a level playing field.

  • There isn't a metric that doesn't drastically punish

  • black folks for being black.

  • I worked one time with the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

  • Black folks die of prostate cancer

  • at twice the rate white folks do.

  • You can just go through the list.

  • There isn't really a metric where

  • it's not glaringly obvious.

  • Yes, absolutely.

  • That is what we are talking about on the show

  • on a regular basis, and we don't want to stop talking about it.

  • Because there's a lot of change that

  • needs to happen in every single area.

  • When you're talking, and you're doing this,

  • I notice that you don't have the cast on your hand anymore.

  • It's gone, so tell us about your accident from your--

  • we heard her perspective.

  • But tell us what happened.

  • Yeah, so I went off roading.

  • And when I bring people off roading, the very first thing

  • I tell them, it's rookie 101.

  • Keep your hands inside the vehicle.

  • I broke rookie rule number one, and I broke my hand.

  • I'd say the pain was a four.

  • The embarrassment was an 11.

  • I then had to get surgery.

  • I think she showed maybe that one of the pins came loose,

  • so we got rid of that one.

  • Eventually, I got them all out.

  • I think two weeks ago, I got all the pins out, got the cast off,

  • and I'm back in the saddle.

  • Good for you.

  • I do a lot of that stuff too.

  • Yeah, yeah, you're so macho.

  • Now was it the same hand that a seal--

  • didn't you get bitten by a seal?

  • Yeah, as earlier discussed, I used to consume drugs,

  • and I was one time on ecstasy with a friend

  • Kaitlin Olson, who's on television.

  • And I won't say whether she was on anything or not.

  • I'm just saying, I was on ecstasy,

  • and we were at a beach.

  • And low and behold, there was an adorable seal

  • on the beach that had just swam up to shore.

  • And there were a bunch of different people

  • kind of checking the seal out.

  • And in my state of mind, I thought,

  • I know exactly what to do.

  • It's just like a dog.

  • You get it to smell your hand, and then we're

  • going to be snuggling.

  • And I'll be scratching its belly behind the ears,

  • and I was certain of this.

  • And I just knew I'd be cuddling this thing on the beach.

  • And I got closer, and closer, and closer,

  • and all systems were pointing to go.

  • And I got into that last minute, and I put my hand out.

  • And the seal sniffed it, and I thought, oh, here we go.

  • And then it just went [SEAL NOISES] and then bit

  • my thumb twice pretty bad and opened it up.

  • And then what was really funny is

  • it was very polarizing for the bystanders.

  • Half the people were shouting, you

  • got what you deserved, which is true.

  • And then the other half were going,

  • that's how they say hello.

  • Like some of the people didn't want me to lose

  • my faith in the animal.

  • Oh, so when you're on ecstasy, and it seems like a good idea

  • to pet a seal, and then it doesn't let you cuddle it,

  • but bites it and opens up your-- now

  • is it still a pleasant experience,

  • because you're on ecstasy?

  • You're like, oh, blood.

  • I'm 100%, 100%.

  • You know, I would do it, again, if I weren't an addict.

  • Well, I guess we don't need to really say it, but we should.

  • Don't try this.

  • Kids, if you're watching at home--

  • Don't try ecstasy and pet a seal.

  • It's rare that you can tell a story

  • where every element should be avoided, so don't take ecstasy.

  • Don't try to pet a seal, or maybe

  • go to the beach with Kaitlin Olson.

  • That's fun.

  • But other than that, just skip the whole thing.

  • Other than that, the rest of it is stuff you shouldn't do.

Our first guest is one of our favorites.
