It's been 2 years since the launch of Coffee Powered Systems. 2 years!! For this special coffee chat, I'm reflecting on my time as a podcaster, and things I would have told myself back then if I knew what I know now.

Also, this episode has a couple of Easter eggs hidden in it, and if you can tell me what they are, there is a prize up for grabs.

When you have them, email: contact@mirandamerten.com or DM on Instagram: @mirandamerten (first person wins! - USA only).
