Marek Bowers is the founder and creator of Rawlogy, a health and wellness company focused on sustainable self-care products. As an avid outdoorsman and single working Dad, Marek wanted tools to support his health care and exercise routine that were sustainable and light enough to take anywhere (like on backpacking trips). That’s when he created the Rawlogy Cork Massage Ball, an eco-friendly, ultra-light solution for self-massage on the trail. He had used massagers in the past but found many to be made with synthetics and chemicals, and they were too heavy to carry on trips. Marek joins Justin to discuss launching this brand!

Brewer's Crackers is a "spent grain" cracker company driven to reducing food waste in the craft brewing industry. Spent grains are a valuable by-product from the beer making process. When making beer, brewers steep super high-quality grains, like barley, in water. They then strain this mixture, keeping the liquid to make beer and discard the "spent" grains.  Turns out, these grains are still incredibly flavorful, and the steeping process actually unlocks valuable nutrients. Brewers Crackers recycles those grains into crackers and combine them with 100% whole wheat flour. Founder Kyle Fiasconaro joins Justin to discuss this delicious new food brand!
