The Polymath PolyCast: Unlocking Polymathic Potential

Welcome to the PolyCast, the show for the intellectually curious, the creatively diverse, and the endlessly innovative. I am your host Dustin Miller PolyInnovator, and this is the audio arm of my vast content ecosystem.

Now in Season 6!


Join me on a journey to becoming a polymath, and on the way we can explore the world of polymathy.

Where we explore the limitless potential of generalists, polymaths, multipotentialites, and more. The overarching theme is _polymathy_, the art of mastering multiple disciplines, and it serves as our compass as we navigate a vast sea of knowledge.

I offer you two captivating series formats:

Multidisciplinary Interviews:

Step into the minds of extraordinary individuals who are true polymaths, generalists, or masters of diverse skills. Our in-depth interviews uncover the secrets of their success, their unique approaches to learning, and the insights they've gained through their polymathic journeys.

Fireside MicroPolyCast:

Imagine sitting by a crackling fire, engaged in a stimulating conversation with your host. The Fireside MicroPolyCast episodes are like those cherished fireside chats, where I share insightful bursts of ideas, rants, explanations, news about PolyInnovator and short, thought-provoking discussions. It's the perfect quick dive into the world of polymathy.


On the PolyCast, I believe that the pursuit of knowledge knows no bounds. Each episode is a unique exploration of interdisciplinary thinking, innovation, and the polymathic spirit. Join me and unleash your own polymathic potential.

Discover the power of versatile thinking, the beauty of connecting diverse dots, and the joy of learning across disciplines. Dive into The Polymath PolyCast today and embrace your inner polymath.
