There's a weekly livestream called PodChatLive for the ongoing professional growth and education of Podiatry practitioners as well as other health professionals which may be keen on the foot and associated topics. The show is broadcast live on Facebook and then it's modified to enhance the product quality and then transferred to YouTube in order to reach a bigger audience. Each episode features a different guest or number of guests to go over a unique subject in each stream. Issues are answered as they are posted on Facebook by the hosts and guests during the stream on Facebook. There's also a PodCast version of each stream available on iTunes as well as Spotify and the other common podcast services that gets published following the initial livestream. They have created a large following that keeps getting more popular. PodChatLive can be regarded as one way in which podiatry practitioners could easily get free professional improvement hours or continuing education credits.
The plethora of subject areas is rather diverse. In the second episode while the reasoning behind the show was still being produced, the two hosts were asked a live question that they didn't feel experienced enough to answer, therefore for the following show 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 a specialist for the 3D analysis of gait or the assessment of the way that people run or walk making use of sophisticated systems. The edition reviewed the key benefits of and drawbacks of these systems for use by podiatry practitioners and the expenses involved with establishing a facility to complete a high level 3D analysis of gait. The problem of how much the setup costs in relationship to the improvement in clinical outcomes was an important part of that discussion. Chris was certainly a valuable guest and helped the hosts to check the structure of getting a guest on remotely during a live episode.
