I will be attending Podfest from February 8-10; one of the largest podcasting conferences in the world. At last year’s conference I met Bruce Langford and Chel Hamilton who I interviewed on the podcast. Bruce is the host of the Mindfulness Mode podcast. He came on The Colon Cancer Podcast to talk about how Mindfulness can help ease the stress and anxiety of cancer. Chel Hamilton is the host of the Meditation Minis Podcast. She and I discussed techniques to help alleviate scanxiety.
