This is one of our favorite things to do, podcast.  Every 2 weeks we gather some important information on breaking developments in neuroscience, research, and clinical practice and we sit down and talk for an hour. This podcast has grown faster than either of us expected. We have listeners in countries all over the world. Last time we checked we were in over 90 countries and in places we did not even think spoke, let alone understood, the english language. It is cool to have listeners in Russia, Tasmania, Israel, Japan, South Korea, Chille, Ireland, UAE, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Argentina, Australia, China and the list goes on. We will never get to many of those countries to lecture but it is exciting to know that the internet has brought our voices that far. All you need to do is "Google" us and you will find all the different places where our podcast has been uploaded.  Search "podcast the gait guys". You can always find us on iTunes and download us to your phone or laptop.  We recently started loading them up to our YOUTUBE Channel and SoundCloud. Our thousands of self-authored articles can always be found on our Facebook, Twitter and

3. FB reader sent us a message:

- am posting this to see if I can get a little bit of help from the best professionals in the area (you). 
I have read some of the information on your site and I think I have quite a problem on my right foot. It happens that the medial part of the foot tripod does not touches the floor at all and I have lack of support in that zone. So it seems like my forefoot is varus. I have also noticed that when I am standing it looks like my rear foot is valgus. So, I can’t really compensate this problem because if the forefoot is varus and I try to put it neutral, the rear foot gets even more valgus, and if it I try to put the rear foot neutral, the forefoot gets even more varus and my big toe does not touch any part of the floor. Can you please help me? I do not know what to do and I am a little bit desperate because nobody I went to could help me. You are probably my last hope. I know I can correct this and I have the will and dedication to pull it off. I bet there are some exercises I can do but I do not really know which at all. 
Thanks in advance. -Jorge

9. Questions from a field doc:
Hey guys,
 I have heard you guys say many times that many people who choose to venture into minimalistic footwear have not "earned their right" to do such without increasing their risk for problems.  I was wondering if you could explain what parameters you use to determine if and when they are ready.
