Episode 71: PBS, PSA and YOU – a plea, a pledge and a prostate

In episode 71, James starts off with a plea for a pledge and then the “Two Mikes” discuss the whole issue of what to do with the new evidence around PSA screening. We find out that if you believed in it before you’ll likely continue believing and if you didn’t believe in it you will still think that way – isn’t evidence wonderful? At the end James hopes you will continue to believe the podcast should continue.
