Season Four of The Fireside Micro-PolyCast

I always take these micro episodes with the thought of what can I share that is unique? Is there a topic I haven't touched on in my bigger pieces/episodes, is there a topic NO ONE has talked about, or is there something I am extremely passionate about in the moment?

Each episode truly takes into account one of those three motivations, and makes for an exciting short form podcast.

I aim for many micro episodes a season, but I haven't settled on a number per season yet, and honestly I have no end point for the PolyCast either. Meaning that as the seasons progress perhaps there will be more and more per season. We are already seeing that pattern now that we are in season five, and this post is of the micro episodes in season four.

This season I really stretched my wings, and talked about rare topics. Check them all out below!

Accelerated Movement

Sometimes the best way to stop yourself from falling, is to move forward even faster. By using movement as your own advantage, it allows for complexity in an ordinarily simple situation. Giving you control over said situation, now it may come down to quick thinking, tight core, or even just straight up cardio. However when done right it can be a lifesaver in some cases, and when applied to other areas of life....

Think about if you feel yourself stumbling at work, maybe you are letting deadlines pile up, and you're feeling behind. Instead of tripping over them and making excuses, you instead use it as fuel to motivate yourself to get them done faster than usual.

Accelerated Movement [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
Tis the start of a new season! Many great things coming your way. Today’s episode is on keeping your balance and progression through movement. Continuous or even accelerated movement allows for you to stay stable, as the momentum carries you along. I always love new season vibes. Whether it is the…

Dealing with Burnout

It is strange how over the past few years I have experience close encounters with burnout, even a close call after I discovered the signs of it. I even quit teaching the water classes that I love because I felt the warning signs of it at the end of last year.

I hit burnout hard in tail-end of 2017, and it is not something I want to experience again. Moderation and balance are key, and I wonder if it is something happening across the board. Especially with the pandemic and quarantine, as people had to discover a lot of their own rhythms for the first time.

Dealing with Burnout [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
Constantly working on things like my #PolyCast or #OmniContent, or just my day job even. It is all starting to get to me, and the pressure to the guests I feel in order to get the interviews out is overwhelming. I literally think about it every day, which some days motivates me to edit/release, a…

PolyInnovator Omnichannel Content Production

Not only is omnichannel viewed in an ecommerce point of origin, but it is also often confused with multichannel. Now I think getting into semantics is a lot like saying multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary. In essence in most conversations we are going to mean a similar outcome.

In the case of channels it simply means being across the board present. I have had some run ins with people being confused on that topic. I wanted to share my point of view of it all, and my endeavors to achieve that across the board presence as a solo creator.

The OmniChannel Production Ecosystem, as well as my OmniContent series. Both of which are slightly different approaches to that goal. I actually (with great difficulty) merged the databases into one at the end of the year.

PolyInnovator Omnichannel Content Production [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
From OmniContent to Omnichannel, there are a lot of ways of being on all platforms. My two main ways are these, and I try to explain them in more detail in today’s micro-polycast. With all these words people often don’t think about, just think of the word omnipresent, and being there wherever peopl…

Information Architecture of Content Creation

Man do people in the creator space love systems! I mean why shouldn't we? They help us do many great things, and without them I am sure many endeavors just wouldn't get done simply because of logistics. The marketing of one video alone is a really big hassle, but without tools even more so.

How you go about organizing that data and information to make into a system is what I talk about in this micro-episode.

Information Architecture of Content Creation [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
How do we go about organizing our content creation? Asana? Notion? Some other random tool? Well it comes down to the number of layers of abstraction, and how you can organize the data. Whether those are posts, the systems of output, or the silos of content types. Or lack there of in the OmniConten…

What Gary Vee Sees That You Don't

There is a point where you transcend content platforms. I don't mean that in a way of "oh you're better than..." no no. Rather you grow detached from them, and you no longer put all your eggs in one basket. For example I truly do not think YouTube will last forever, it has been the king of video, however I fear it won't be able to innovate fast enough to keep up with web3.

When you think of platforms just as that, platforms, then you realize they rise and fall. I was on vine for example, I hated how it closed up shop, and now I am on Tiktok. An old viner made a joke video where he said "man I miss vine... man I miss I miss flip flap... man I miss woobadoo". Etc, and not verbatim haha. However it was a really interesting point Brandon made, as it showed that platforms do not stick around.

Knowing the ins and outs of one platform by observing, but also observing the tides of change of platforms.

What GaryVee Sees That You Don’t [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
To be honest I lost the video I was speaking of in this episode, but in reality he has spoken about these concepts in countless videos. You can think of the lesson as these: Know your context of a platform Study the ins and outs of the trends jab, jab, jab, jab, jab, & right hook Act NOW, d…

Audio as a Medium

Simple talk about the idea of how audio as a medium has evolved, and where it might go. Especially considering Twitter Spaces/Clubhouse.

Audio as a Medium [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
The future of #audio is live AND pre-recorded. I felt that many people needed to think more about what the future may hold. This idea sharing is what this series is all about! Taking a short form audio format. P.S. I just had the idea about having a fire track in the background, so it has this rel…

The Future of TeleInnovator

Again being not beholdened to a platform, as the TeleInnovator concept is cross platform by nature.

The Future of TeleInnovator [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
TeleInnovator is all of the video content for PolyInnovator. When you watch something on YouTube or on Special, etc; Then that is a TeleInnovator content. The idea came about because of the prominence of video content. I thought what is a way I could unique brand the videos I put out, and also too…

PolyInnovator Ecosystem

PolyInnovator Ecosystem [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
An expansive ecosystem of content, and aiming for an omnichannel presence. It isn’t an easy thing, yet it feels the most natural for a polymathic personal brand!

The OmniContent Model

Look I'm not saying you need to make 100 pieces of content a day. Perhaps it is closer to a 1000. Given how many platforms are out there at least in the first place.

However I wanted to provide a model that people could follow in order to master this task. It doesn't have to be crazy difficult, as with tools and automations it can be taken care of.

The OmniContent Model [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
I find that the notion of creating 100 pieces of content a day seems impossible, is utterly ridiculous. If you can create one, then you can put out the reps to create more. Here is the deal though, YOU DON’T HAVE TO. You only have to make a few pillar pieces to pull from, and then chop them up. I…

Future PolyPro Subscriptions

I think part of why I made this micro-episodes was so that when things start to really get rolling; Then I'll have proof for planning it all out so far ahead. This one was made about a year ago at the time of this writing. I am just now getting to form the LLC, and that is the precursor to the PolyPRO.

Future PolyPro Subscriptions [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
Whether it is written or video there is a service out there for it. I started content creation with the mindset of creating tons of free content, and that hasn’t changed. I still have plans for literal hundreds of free episodes and ideas to come out. All in the effort creating a great consistency…

The Fireside Codex 2021

Similar in concept to these micro-polycasts, as it is a personal expression of sorts, or the sharing of an idea. It has changed since the inception, and I wanted to elaborate on it.

The Fireside Codex 2021 [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
In the new year, there is a new age for PolyInnovator. A brand new site, along with the new daily writing habit for me. I’ll either be making regular posts, or doing a Fireside Codex entry. Which in this micro-polycast we talk about what that means. You can also check out today’s Codex entry to lea…

The Future of Polymathy

The Future of Polymathy [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
After chatting with Dr. Angela Cotellesa I got to thinking about how the field of the multidisciplinary is evolving. What are some of the ideas that we need to dig into, what things that have already been happening, and have more people realize their potential.

I'm glad you are checking out these episodes, as many of them are not subject to a certain time. Rather they can be enjoyed for the next coming decades I would argue. Meaning the evergreen nature of them is strong, but people need to be able to find them. That is why I made this collection post!
