There's a weekly live show called PodChatLive for the continuing professional development and education of Podiatry practitioners and various physicians which may be interested in the foot and associated issues. It is sent out live on Facebook and after that it is modified to enhance the quality and then uploaded to YouTube in order to reach a wider viewership. Each stream includes a different guest or number of guests to discuss a unique topic in each livestream. Questions have been answered in real time by the hosts and guests whilst in the stream on Facebook. Additionally there is a audio version of each show found on iTunes and also Spotify and the other usual podcast websites that gets submitted following the original live. They have developed a significant following which keeps increasing in popularity. PodChatLive can be considered one of the ways in that podiatry practitioners might get free professional development hours or continuing education credits.
The plethora of themes is quite diverse. In the second episode whilst the idea of the stream was still being produced, the two hosts ended up being asked a live question that they did not feel competent enough to respond to, so for the following episode they had on their first guest which was actually the start of the PodChatLive format. That first invitee was Chris Bishop from Adelaide in Australia who is an authority for the 3D evaluation of gait or the assessment of the way that we run or walk using state-of-the-art systems. The edition talked about the key benefits of and drawbacks of these methods for use by podiatrists and also the expenses involved in setting up a facility to do an advanced 3D analysis of gait. The issue of how much the set up costs in connection to the improvement in clinical outcomes was an important part of that chat. Chris was certainly a valuable guest and helped the hosts to test the structure of having a guest on remotely within a live episode.
