PodChatLive is a once a week live stream for the regular learning of Podiatry practitioners that uses the Facebook livestream to get to their audience. Even though it's usually watched by podiatry practitioners, lots of other health care professionals also see it. The stream is put on by Craig Payne coming from Australia as well as Ian Griffiths from the England. The show is broadcast live on Facebook and then also is later on modified and uploaded to YouTube. Each live show has a different expert or group of guests to talk about a unique topic each time. Inquiries have been answered during the stream by the hosts and experts through the livestream show on Facebook. In addition, there is a audio only version of each livestream on iTunes plus Spotify as well as the other usual podcast resources. They have gained a huge following that continues to grow. PodChatLive is viewed as a great way by which podiatrists can get free continuing education points.
Something which may come through with each livestream is the belief in science and the criticising of those people who expose pseudoscience or junk science concepts. PodChatLive actually had one episode dedicated to the whole topic of bad science in podiatry. In that live the expert that they had on that week was the podiatrist, Robert Issacs in which they reviewed and discussed exactly why critical thinking was so essential in clinical practice and the way our biases affect rational thinking. They also reviewed exactly why it's very extremely important to have the ability and desire to question and evaluate everything we read and why this really is so essential to improving the entire profession of Podiatry. Furthermore they talked about the most popular logical fallacies and flaws which occur within that thinking. They also presented the kinds of patterns noticed from certain types of people in the profession when they are questioned or challenged and the way they reply to those inquiries and challenges when caught out.
