They're married, they're comedians and they couldn't be more different. Living in the digital age hell bent on casting us as Red Team or Blue Team, Alex and Rachel sit down every Monday morning to talk current events through their personal lease of comedy in hopes of finding; common ground.
S4E11: HBO, Discovery+ and Why The IRS is a Scam: A Comedy!
A gentle reminder, this is a comedy podcast. Still. Kinda. Alex is fired up and presents four topics of current happenings to Rachel. Annnnnd he's already predicted how she's gonna take the news. Listen along as we hate on English food (sorry, England), discuss why we are terrified for this HBO, Discovery+, Warner Brothers merger, why Atlanta's premier music festival Music Midtown is no more and we break down The Inflation Reduction Act. Shocker, the majority of the money is going to the IRS and who will it mostly affect? The Middle Class and the poor. GO AMERICA AMMMIRIGHT? Enjoy!
S4E10: Accountability, Masculinity and What it Means to Work for Yourself
It's August! We're ushering in a new month and a lot of the same ole' bullhonk ammiright?! Join us as we share what it means to be held accountable on this podcast, how accountability can help shape leaders, why masculinity goes deeper than Axe Body Spray and we shed some light (you asked!) on what it means to work for ourselves and what our day to day really looks like. Spoiler: we're just tired. Mostly, very, very tired. LOLZ. See you next week!
S4E9: What’s In A Name?
Okay, wow, so we’ve been MIA but trust us, we haven’t *not* seen the news. We’re back and the fire is burning stronger than ever. Alex poses the question, what good is “liberal” or “conservative” if we can’t even agree on the definition of those words. Rachel offers why accountability is the lynchpin between where we are now and where our systems could be. This episode is jam-packed from top to bottom. Don’t worry, there's a few good bits in this one too. Happy Listening!
S4E8: Roe v B******t
As one could imagine, we're a little worked up. Not sure if you've heard the hot goss, but apparently Roe was overturned by The "Supreme" Court and that means an avalanche of things. How will this affect our healthcare workers? Are we headed for another civil war? Has the revolution started? Why is AOC the only Dem demanding action? If you haven't seen Season Four of Stranger Things, allow us to spoil it. America is official in the Upside Down. Oh, and Rachel goes on a fun Nancy Pelosi rant, so that's fun. Get some rest and stay out of the comment section. Happy Listening!
S4E7: Trains, Planes and Biden on a Bike
Let’s jump in shall we? Rachel talks about her love of trains. That’s right. Trains. Like the ones, you ride on? Apparently, they’re “romantic”. Alex opens us up with this week’s headlines including; Internet Explorer’s retirement notice, Gavin Newsome is officially on Truth Social and more! Rachel goes in on Amazon and why their minimum wage should be $22 an hour and we close out on why Biden is just too old to be president. Too old stranger friends. Just, too, old. Happy Listening! --
S4E6: Jack of All Trades
Welcome back to Common Ground Morning Show! Rachel opens up about her pivot to being a fitness influencer, and Alex shares why he's frustrated with the narrative that we all have to think the same way even if it isn't authentic. Then - of course - we break down legacy media distraction and why we aren't solving anything. You're welcome. And then we close on the widely circulated quote "Jack of all trades, master of none", and we dive deep. You won't have to miss it. Honestly - this is actually one of our more "easy listening" episodes. LOLZ
Alex and Rachel are the most entertaining, informed and hilarious married couple! I love listening to them because they are totally honest and and keep me laughing despite how heavy the topic may be!
This is a great pod! Feels like we are being invited into Rachel and Alex’s home every Monday!
Self masturbatory is totally a word
Just listened to the latest episode while scrubbing my copper pots😂 thank you for the refreshing company and I love your take on the current political situation. It’s been despair city over here so the encouragement to live your life and move on is appreciated and heard. You guys clearly have so much respect for each other, have a WONDERFUL wedding, and Rachel, I use that term ALL THE TIME! This feels like more of a letter and less a review, so...
