How to spot pseudoscience?

PodChatLive is a once a month live show for the regular education of Podiatrists which uses the Facebook livestream to contact their audience. Even though it is typically viewed by podiatry practitioners, a lot of other health professionals also watch it. The livestream is put on by Craig Payne coming from Australia as well as Ian Griffiths from the UK. The livestream goes out live on Facebook and then is later on modified and submitted to YouTube. Each live event includes a different expert or group of guests to talk about a unique area of interest every time. Inquiries have been answered live by the hosts and guests during the live show on Facebook. Also, there is a audio only edition of every show on iTunes as well as Spotify and the other regular podcast platforms. PodChatLive has attained a large following which keeps increasing. PodChatLive can be considered a good way in which podiatrists can get free continuing education credits.

One thing that may come through in each episode is the thinking in science and the challenging of those people who present pseudoscience or junk science thoughts. PodChatLive even had one show devoted to the complete issue of bad science in podiatry. In that livestream the guest that they had on that week was the podiatrist, Robert Issacs in which they reviewed and discussed exactly why critical thinking was so critical in clinical practice and how our biases sway rational thinking. Additionally, they discussed exactly why it's very extremely important to have the ability and desire to question and critique almost everything we read and exactly why this really is so fundamental to improving the entire profession of Podiatry. They also described the most popular logical fallacies and faults which occur in that thinking. They also featured the types of behaviours noticed from some kinds of individuals in the profession when they're questioned or challenged and how they react to those questions and challenges when caught out.
