PodChatLive is the monthly live show for the continuing expert development of Podiatrists and other health care professionals that may be keen on the subjects covered, especiall the foot and lower limb. The show is streamed live on Facebook and then is later added to YouTube after being edited. Every live stream features a different guest or selection of guests to talk about a unique topic every time. A wide range of subjects related to podiatry and the lower limb get covered. Questions have been answered live by the hosts and their guests while in the live show on Facebook. There’s even a podcast of each episode presented on iTunes and Spotify and the other typical podcast places which get submitted after editing. They’ve developed a sizeable following which keeps increasing over time. PodChatLive is certainly one of many and popular ways through which podiatrists could easily get free continuing education hours or credits that are needed in lots of places to maintain their professional registration.
Following the first improvised and unplanned show from the kitchen after the hosts had a meal, the chat was carried out by the hosts to see if it could work. Using the Zoom web seminar system, Craig Payne was in Melbourne, Australia and Ian Griffiths was in England, United Kingdom. They planned to find out if it might give good results. In this second episode, they talked about a wide range of topics such supination resistance, touched on 2D Vs 3D gait analysis and were requested who their has to follow people were on social media. A number of questions via the live on Facebook were responded to. The episode worked and PodChatLive was created and their first guest was booked for the following week to answer questions that the hosts could not. They then went from strength to strength with a new guest each week.
