PodChatLive is the regular livestream that was originally produced for the continuing expert development of Podiatry practitioners and other health professionals that may be interested in the subjects covered. The stream is initially broadcast live on Facebook after which is later uploaded to YouTube after being edited to make it more manageable. Every live show features a different person, expert or collection of experts to talk about a unique and different topic each week of relevance to podiatry. An array and very diverse range of subjects get litigated each week. Issues have been answered live by the hosts and their guests while in the live episode on Facebook. There’s even a podcast of each episode presented on iTunes and Spotify and the other usual podcast sources which get submitted after editing. They’ve created a sizeable following which keeps increasing. PodChatLive is recognized as among the many ways by which podiatry practitioners can get free continuing education points or credits that are needed in lots of places to keep up their professional registration.
Following the initial improvised and unplanned episode from the lounge room after the hosts had dinner, the next PodChatLive was streamed by the hosts to find out whether it might work. While using Zoom web conference platform, Craig Payne was in Melbourne, Australia and Ian Griffiths was in England, United Kingdom. Craig and Ian needed to see if it could give good results. In this second event, they talked about supination resistance, touched on 2D Vs 3D gait analysis and were asked who our has to follow people were on social media. It worked. Since then the show has gone from being a weekly to a monthly production because of the work load associated with each episode. They have now developed quite a large following in and outside the podiatry profession.
