PodChatLive is a once a month live stream for the frequent learning of Podiatry practitioners which uses the Facebook livestream to reach their audience. Even though it is usually watched by podiatry practitioners, a great deal of other health care professionals as well see it. The stream is hosted by Craig Payne coming from Australia and Ian Griffiths from the United Kingdom. The livestream is streamed live on Facebook and then is later on modified and submitted to YouTube. Each live episode includes a different guest or group of experts to talk about a distinctive theme each time. Inquiries are answered live by the hosts and guests during the livestream show on Facebook. Furthermore, there is a audio only version of each live on iTunes as well as Spotify and also the other typical podcast websites. PodChatLive has obtained a huge following that is increasing. PodChatLive is viewed as one of the ways through which podiatry practitioners can get free continuing education hours.
One thing that does come through in every livestream may be the thinking in science and the criticising of those that present pseudoscience or junk science beliefs. PodChatLive actually had one live devoted to the entire issue of bad science in podiatry. In that live the guest they had on that week was the podiatrist, Robert Issacs where they talked about and discussed the key reason why critical thinking was very essential in clinical practice and how our biases have an effect on rational thinking. In addition they reviewed basically why it is so imperative that you find a way and want to query and assess almost everything we read and exactly why this can be so critical to enhancing the whole profession of Podiatry. Furthermore they discussed the more common logical fallacies and mistakes which happen in that thinking. They also emphasized the kinds of patterns witnessed from certain kinds of people in the profession with reagrd to pseudoscience when they're inquired or challenged and the way they respond to those concerns and challenges when trapped.
