In the first stream which started everything, it was completely improvised and a spur of the moment move to make. One of the creators, Craig Payne from Melbournein Australia found himself in England for 2 days during the way home from conferences in Spain and Portugal without much to do. Whilst there he called in at Ian Griffith’s home and while discussing after dinner they discovered none of them had actually streamed a Facebook Live so decided to try it and see what happens. They did a Facebook Live discussion from Ian’s home. Inspite of the quite “amateur” and entirely “unrehearsed” character of the live stream, it was met with surprisingly favourable feedback and so they got some deep contemplating questions through the broadcast live. So that they began wondering if there is some mileage in performing something like this with greater frequency. And thus a regular show came to be to finally be called, PodChatLive. In this PodChatLive, Craig speaks about and reveals which has been the research paper which altered his beliefs the most, and they also discuss junk science, pseudoscience, research translation. Some other subjects come up were issues on what is inappropriate with cuboid syndrome – we know it whenever we view it, however its hard to define. In addition, they talked about Craig’s favourite airport to eat breakfast at.
