The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller

This show is for the polymathic, the entrepreneurial, the multipotentialites, and the Innovators!

Now on Season 5!!

PolyInnovator (The overarching personal brand that the PolyCast is under), means Innovation Polymath, or future global changemaker. Created a Modular Degree curated with online courses and micro-credentials. You will find topics wide ranging in interests!

PolyInnovator works in #OmniContent sprints, which are like multi/omni channel episodes. So each release gets a OmniBlog Post, TeleInnovator Video, and PolyCast upload! :D


Between the OmniContent, and the guest interviews I have on the show, there are multiple formats for the #PolyCast. It can get a little confusing, so here is the series that you will see:

Fireside Micro-PolyCast

Bits of idea bursts, rants, explanations, and simply short form 3-10min episodes.


These don't happen often, but they are the medium sized episodes that may have a didactic feel to them. They are solocasts, with a bit of flare.


Each episode of the Omnicontent series starts with a blog post, turns into a slideshow, then a video, and with the video I extract the audio and turn it into a PolyCast!

The Polymath PolyCast Interviews

The interview and guest arm of the show, these episodes tend to be much longer, as they are interview discussions. They have been great, and the nuggets of knowledge anyone can get from them have been insanely awesome. Go take a listen!

If you would prefer the video version:

All in all they keep a similar polymathic feel, and stay true to the "Niche".... However the subniches can be essentially anything. Meaning the topics could be as well, so don't worry if one episode doesn't fit the bill. I'm sure another one will hit it out of the park!
