David Friedberg joins to discuss The Production Board’s latest company, Cana, which is making, the world’s first molecular beverage printer. But first Jason and Molly break down some news.

1. How humans perceive taste.
2. How The Production Board incubates deep tech companies and evaluates if science is ready to be commercialized.
3. The way the Cana device will be able to recreate any beverage on demand.
4. Which types of beverages will be practical first.
