Costly mistakes - Technical CCC Podcasts - Productive lunch breaks

In: weekly reflex

Shaping up memocortex.com goes well enough, so I'm looking forward to deploying the final touches next week 🎉

Luckily, the 9 scheduled episodes of the "Curious Coders Chronicles" podcast got out to Apple Podcasts and Spotify so that you can enjoy some of the very technical episodes here:
