Something which does come through with every livestream is the belief in science and the criticising of those people who expose pseudoscience or junk science concepts. They even had one livestream focused on the whole topic of bad science in podiatry. In that livestream the guest they had on that month was the podiatrist, Robert Issacs where they reviewed and tackled the reason why critical thinking was very important in clinical practice and how our biases sway rational thinking. Additionally they brought up basically why it's so important to have the ability and desire to question and assess almost everything we read and why this really is so vital to improving the entire profession of Podiatry. They even described the more common logical fallacies and errors which occur in that thinking. They also presented the sorts of behaviours noticed from certain types of people in the profession when they are questioned or challenged and just how they react to those questions and challenges when caught out.
