Great podcast with interesting discussions
I had the privilege of being interviewed by these two brilliant men. It was a great experience and we really went deep into topics I never thought we would.
Definitely a great podcast in general with deep dives into touchy subjects.
Love the More in Common Podcast
Besides Rodney and Keith being pretty much the coolest people ever. The content they produce is super insightful. This is a podcast that allows you to think, grow, learn, and analyze your own thoughts. The theme of the podcast is something this whole world needs to practice. Imagine if the whole world actually took the time to listen to people’s stories, imagine how much unity could come from it. The best part about it is how real and authentic it is you feel like you are just in a conversation with some close friends, I love it!
1 of the best
Definitely 1 if the best in-depth interviews I’ve ever had! Was excited about the process and it lived up to it all!
