    We’re re-airing some of our favorite episodes from the Commonwealth. This conversation was recorded in December of 2019.

    John Rood first connected with The Commonwealth host Nick Castner in 2017 when he was Nick was a senior in college. Two years later, Rood helped Nick and Alec McChesney, creators of the podcast, choose the name The Commonwealth for the podcast. John has since assisted in gathering guests for the show, and he appears on this episode to tell that story. Plus, John talks about Disney's new feature, Disney Plus. Enjoy.
