    Thanks for sharing this! Uncertainty is a favourite topic of mine and it’s something I learned to embrace after coming face-to-face with an aggressive form of cancer in 2008. My story: http://www.timstringer.com/blog/articles/finding-certainty-in-uncertainty/

    Hello Mike,

    It’s been quite a while since your last postcast. It’s a pity because your podcasts are highly appreciated. Can we expect more of them?

      Hey Jeff,

      Thanks for complimenting Mike — we miss him too! Unfortunately, the podcast production was stopped in 2011 because we changed the working structure of WA quite a bit.

      But you never know when things change — so stay tuned! 🙂
