    I never realized it before but as a survivor of domestic abuse that is why I stayed. It was absolutely shame. I feel so much better now that I know that

    This man is such an incredible interviewer! It is so refreshing to listen to an interviewer who asks thoughtful questions and actually listens. He is so secure in himself; he doesn’t spend the interview trying to show how smart he is. He relaxes into it and that puts his guest at ease and allows them to shine. I never knew Dax Shepard was this deep or intelligent. I also love his vulnerability. Beautiful interview!

    That was how it was back then. No one talked about anything. The first time stuff came out was the 70s. Gerald Ford's wife, the first lady, was an alcoholic. It gave the people permission to talk about stuff that goes on in families. There is some horrible things that happen behind closed doors.

    I'm not going to say I have had a total change of heart towards the guy, because it is hard to turn a verdict of 'that guy is just a wannbe a cast off extra from Jackass' when it's been made, but I do appreciate the guy has probably beat himself up over knowing that is more or less what people felt about him. Besides, what I interpreted as 'ass hat' may well of just been a good guy with a bad hangover. I won't be rushing out to see anything the guy makes anyday soon, but kudos to him for kicking a habit that would of cost him his life had he continued.

    These Dax interviews are so poignant and real. I should be asleep, but the ease and depth of your conversations is just so compelling!

    He is such a whining little bitch. If I was rich and famous, then MAYBE, someone might give a damn about me. But I'm not and you people want to worship these pricks with more money than you. They Ain't stars. Just other fuckin humans. At least he had a Mother. Mine died 2 days after I turned 10 years old. My Dad remarried and my STEP-MOTHER tried to Poison me, run me off the road and pulled a gun on me. I should be dead at least 15 times, but dammit, I'm still here to suffer for something. I even tried to kill myself. The 357 Magnum missed fired, aimed it out the window and it fired. I tried overdosing, nothing but a sick queasy feeling the next morning. I passed cop that was doing 90 MPH (72 GTO) on I-20 and when he finally caught up with me and pulled over my right front was flat. I should've wrecked and died then, but with my luck. I'M STILL FUCKING HERE.

    if its off camera - how come i can see them? podcasts are jumping the shark - rich people listening to themselves talk - Joe Rogan has it down - everyone is looking for a paycheck and for their "words" to be heard - sad

    Shame and guilt are paralysers. Nothing positive comes from shame... it keeps us in the problem. I was a mother in a similar situation. It isn't always easy to let our children see how we are really feeling when we find ourselves in a awful situation.

    The irony is that most people don't care enough to judge, too wrapped up in their own stuff.

    The power of shame. It's that fear of judgement and facing criticism. What if people didn't judge or criticize others? What if people were understanding and loving instead?

    • Mêlée Placid

      Good points.. however it’s the same dynamic that leads to shame etc. People aren’t able to see with as much compassion and acceptance due to so much of how our society is. Our society as a whole is afraid to be real, honest, authentic...because we live in a deeply entrenched and complex society (in realms of “hiding”) and it’s reinforced by many dysfunctional families, who learned it from their parents and on and on...
      That it’s easy enough to see the “answer” but how do we get there? How do we treat the root cause and help people with massive resistance to being real (encouraged and reinforced from childhood on) to become authentic, compassionate, self and other accepting?
      It’s a very complex process.

    A mother has a lot of pride. I can understand feeling shame. If she only had that support to be told she's brave and incredible, it's ok to leave. It doesn't make you a failure. EVER.

    Dax is such an honest and humble guy. His openness is going to help so many people out there. I'm glad that you two seem to be friends now!

    I love these talks with Dax. This is why Brené Brown says shame is lethal. I always agreed, in the context that it can eat you alive, make you self-medicate, lead to suicide, etc. I never thought of this example...it can literally get you killed by someone else. She's a strong woman.
    P. S. Sam, you're my favourite interviewer and I'm a huge fan of Off Camera. Much respect. 👏
