In the 1st stream which started it all, it turned out totally unplanned and a unexpected move to make. One of the hosts, Craig Payne from MelbourneMelbourne found himself in England for 2 days whilst on the way back home from meetings in Spain and Portugal without much to do. Whilst there he called in at Ian Griffith’s home and whilst discussing after dinner they realized none of them had actually streamed a Facebook Live so they decided to give it a go and see what happens. They did a livestream discussion from Ian’s house. Regardless of the pretty “amateur” and entirely “unrehearsed” character of the live stream, it was met with interestingly positive comments and they got some deep thinking requests through the livestream. So that they started questioning if there was some mileage in doing something like this with greater regularity. And thus a regular show was developed to eventually be called, PodChatLive. In this PodChatLive, Craig shares about and reveals which was the research study that modified his thinking the most, and they also discuss junk science, pseudoscience, research translation. Other topics come up were issues on what is incorrect with cuboid syndrome – we all know it when we view it, however its hard to define. In addition, they talked about Craig’s most liked airport terminal to eat breakfast at.
