PodChatLive is a weekly live show for ongoing education of Podiatrists. The serises streamed on Facebook and after that is later uploaded to You tube. Each livestream has a different invitee or group of guests to talk about a unique topic each time. Requests are answered live by the hosts and friends throughout the livestream on Facebook. There is also a PodCast version of every episode available on iTunes and Spotify as well as the other common podcast sources. They have developed a great following that is increasing. The series is viewed as one of many ways whereby podiatrists could get free continuing learning hours.

In the initial event which started it all, it turned out entirely unplanned and a unexpected action to take. One of the creators, Craig Payne from Melbournein Australia found himself in England for Two days whilst on the way home from meetings in Spain and Portugal without much to do. Whilst in the UK he dropped in at Ian Griffith’s home and while chatting after dinner they discovered neither of them had actually recorded a Facebook Live so decided to try it and see what happens. They did a livestream discussion from Ian’s kitchen. Inspite of the really “amateur” and entirely “unrehearsed” character of the live stream, it was met with amazingly good feedback and they got some deep contemplating requests during the broadcast live. So they began wondering if there is some mileage in doing something like this more frequently. And therefore a regular show was given birth to to in due course be called, PodChatLive. In this PodChatLive, Craig speaks about and reveals which was the research paper that evolved his beliefs probably the most, and they chat about junk science, pseudoscience, research translation. Some other issues come up were issues on what is erroneous with cuboid syndrome – we know it whenever we see it, but its difficult to define. In addition they discussed Craig’s favourite airport terminal to have breakfast in.
