Sorry for the lack of any definitive news, but I'm posting after a few minutes of detective work and deductive reasoning.
My phone just rang with a satellite phone calling in, but I couldn't hear anyone on the other line and then it went dead.
After waiting for a few minutes, I checked our online voicemail box that they have been calling podcasts into and found the following message. If you listen carefully, you'll hear other voices in the background, and Bill sure sounds pretty happy. I'm going to assume that the team is on the summit of Mount Everest!!!!!
I'll post through the night as more reports come through.
