There is a weekly livestream named PodChatLive for the ongoing professional development and learning of Podiatrists and also other clinicians that may be keen on the foot and related topics. PodChatLive is sent out live on Facebook and then it is modified to improve the quality and then transferred to YouTube in order to reach a wider audience. Each episode has a unique guest or number of guests to talk about a unique topic in every episode. Questions are answered in real time by the hosts and guests while in the stream on Facebook. There's also a PodCast edition of every show found on iTunes and also Spotify and the other common podcast sources that will get published following the initial live. They have developed a significant following which keeps increasing in popularity. PodChatLive is viewed as a proven way in which podiatry practitioners may get free professional improvement hours or continuing education credits.
The plethora of topics is reasonably diverse. In the 2nd stream as the notion of the livestream was still being designed, the two hosts were asked a live question that they didn't feel experienced enough to reply to, so for the following episode that 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 expert on the 3D analysis of gait or the appraisal of the way that people run or walk making use of state-of-the-art technologies. The livestream talked over the advantages of and drawbacks of these approaches for use by podiatry practitioners and also the costs associated with setting up a facility to do an advanced 3D analysis of gait. The problem of how much the setup costs in relationship to the enhancement in clinical outcomes was an important part of that conversation. Chris was certainly a helpful guest and allowed the hosts to test the format of having a guest on remotely during a live show.
