Who are the academics?

There is a regular livestream video talk show known as PodChatLive that is for the continuing learning of Podiatrists along with other clinical disciplines that might be interested in podiatry and the feet. It goes live on Facebook after which is later on edited and downloaded to YouTube for longer term viewing. Every livestream includes a different guest or group of guests to talk about a different subject each month. Inquiries are answered live by the hosts and the guests through the chat on the live event on Facebook. In addition, there is a PodCast recording of every single show found on iTunes in addition to Spotify and the other common podcast portals. They have developed a substantial following that is growing. PodChatLive can be viewed as one of the ways during which podiatry practitioners can get free continuing education hours or continuing medical education credits (CME's).

There is lots of interest in the show from podiatry teachers where there have already been a number of guests on the livestream who hold university positions. Among the early guests was, Emma Cowley and this turned out to be a well liked episode and was leading for a while in obtaining the most views on YouTube. In this episode Emma mentioned what educational life is like for a podiatrist, particularly for those who're contemplating this being a career option. Emma discussed how she juggles her academic job, researching for her own PhD and just how she handles still to do and have some private clinical practice job. She gave the listeners insight in just what it is like for undergrad students today, especially in the framework of social media and how they can be employed to enhance a students studying. She discussed what her favourite publication of 2017 had been and also how bright the future for Podiatric conventions is looking. There was also a significant chat regarding all of the different logical misconceptions thrown in as well.
