PodChatLive is a weekly live show for continuing education of Podiatrists. The seri ises streamed on Facebook and then is later placed on YouTube. Each show has a different invitee or number of guests to talk about a different topic every time. Queries are answered live by the hosts and guests throughout the episode on Facebook. Additionally there is a PodCast version of each episode found on iTunes and Spotify as well as the other usual podcast places. The hosts have created a sizeable following which is increasing. PodChatLive can be considered one of many ways in which podiatrists could possibly get free ongoing education hours.
In the very first event that began everything, it was totally improvised and a unexpected action to take. One of the hosts, Craig Payne from MelbourneMelbourne found himself in England, UK for 2 days whilst on the way home from conferences in Spain and Portugal without a lot to do. Whilst in the UK he dropped in at Ian Griffith’s house and while chatting after dinner they realized none of them had ever streamed a Facebook Live so decided to give it a go and find out what happens. They did a Facebook Live chat from Ian’s home. Despite the really “amateur” and absolutely “unrehearsed” nature of the live stream, it was met with surprisingly favourable feedback and so they got some deep contemplating requests during the livestream. So that they began pondering if there was some mileage in doing a thing like this with greater frequency. And therefore a regular show was born to in due course be known as, PodChatLive. In this episode, Craig talks about and reveals which has been the research paper which modified his thinking the most, and they also discuss junk science, pseudoscience, research translation. Other subjects come up were issues on what is inappropriate with cuboid syndrome – we all know it when we see it, but its hard to define. Additionally, they talked about Craig’s favourite airport terminal to have breakfast in.
