In this episode of the podcast, I’m joined by the inventor of the innovative “ReedJuvinate” product called John Mackey, who also happens to be a biomedical researcher at the University of Alberta. We discuss the design, features, and benefits of the product, some of the science behind why it works (including some rather disturbing experiments that show just how gross your reeds really are!), and how it will help you get longer lasting, read-to-play reeds and stay healthy at the same time.
