Brad RootWe continue our celebration of the A. I. Root Company's 150 anniversary we started in Season 1, Episode 17 with Brad Root. In this episode, we pick up about 1920 and continue to the 1980's.  Brad relates several of the key events in the history of the A.I. Root Company from the end of the WWI through the Great Depression, WWII, the 50's and 60's. It is a fascinating look back at the company from the 5th Root generation managing the business.

Also in this show, we get an update from Peter Nelson who joined the podcast back in Season 1, Episode 22. His movie, The Pollinators, is receiving great reviews at film festivals across the country.
