PodChatLive is a weekly live show for continuing learning of Podiatrists. The show is streamed on Facebook and after that is later added onto YouTube. Each show features a different person or group of guests to go over a unique issue each episode. Queries are replied to live by the hosts and guests during the episode on Facebook. Additionally there is a PodCast version of each stream available on iTunes and Spotify and also the other usual podcast websites. The hosts have developed a great following that keeps growing. The series is viewed as one of the ways by which podiatrists can get free ongoing learning hours.
In the very first episode which began everything, it turned out completely unplanned and a spur of the moment move to make. One of the hosts, Craig Payne from Melbournein Australia found himself in England for Two days whilst on the way home from conferences in Spain and Portugal without a lot to do. Whilst there he called in at Ian Griffith’s home and whilst chatting after a meal they discovered none of them had actually recorded a Facebook Live so they decided to have a go and see what happens. They did a Facebook Live discussion from Ian’s home. Regardless of the really “amateur” and totally “unrehearsed” nature of the live stream, it was met with interestingly positive feedback and they got some deep thinking requests through the broadcast live. So that they started wondering if there is some mileage in doing something like this more reguarily. And therefore a regular livestream was born to finally be called, PodChatLive. In this PodChatLive, Craig shares about and reveals which has been the research paper which modified his thinking probably the most, plus they chat about junk science, pseudoscience, research translation. Other issues come up were concerns on what is erroneous with cuboid syndrome – we know it when we view it, but its difficult to define. They also discussed Craig’s most liked airport to have breakfast at.
