Season Three of The Fireside Micro-PolyCast

This is a blog post curating all of the micro episodes from the third season of the Polymath PolyCast. The show has many series, and although the micro series I find to be the most fluid. Meaning the topics vary even more, and they also are usually one of kind. Meaning you often can't find a video/blog/podcast about the topic elsewhere. At least not the same sort of ideas being shared.

I created these curated lists so that if you came to my content ecosystem at a later time, then you can still enjoy these older episodes. As they still probably have strong relevance even at that future time.

Season 3 Epic Launch!

At this time I was experimenting with format types for the kickoff of a new season, and the wrapping up of a season. Since I go with the flow of the content series of the various PolyCasts I can't necessarily tell you all what will come in the season.

Except for the basic stuff like format of the weeks, or perhaps some topics I have planned. This epic launch was a way for me to share my excitement for the truly amazing episodes to come. One of the strongest seasons of the Polymath Polycast honestly.

Season 3 Epic Launch! [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
Here is the deal, I want to start the next season off strong, and I didn’t want an interview to be the launch episode. Felt that it would be too abrupt to jump right in with one, so this micro episode came into being. After this comes out early on in the week, there will be three interviews coming…

Transfer Protocols and Transfers of Knowledge

I wanted to share the concept of IPFS, as even still at the time of this writing there is not enough content out there about it. This was a simple yet complicated micro episode around the transfer protocols on the internet.

Transfer Protocols and Transfers of Knowledge [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
HTTP or IPFS, what are you talking about Dustin? How we use the internet, and where we are headed. There are plenty of ways of interacting with links nowadays, versus the early 2000’s where you had to scour forums to find any link to a new site. With the upcoming OmniContent Mini Series, around T…

Polymath Competition

It is so weird, with any "niche" you are bound to find people who are stubborn. However it seems with the polymathy meta-niche it is a bit more open. We want more people talking about polymaths and generalists.

There is a bit of an open arms, at least in my opinion, however there is also this disdain of the ego. On top of that some folks want to hide their content completely behind paywalls, or block others from being in networks/conferences.

It is a weird dynamic, that I find I want my actions to be the opposite. Open and encouraging to those who wnat to be multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary.

Polymath Competition [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
I want to bring together all the #polymaths under one tribe. Even if they still want to be a part of their own niche pockets, that is totally okay. We just need a place where we CAN come all together, and I’m in the process of trying to meet all the people creating those tribes, and bring them to t…

The Fireside Codex

An interesting concept, sort of an online journal, and one that I hoped would be something I could do all the time. I still treat them a bit too much like blog posts, even though they are separate.

I created it on Airtext, then substack, and it is the latter where I focused on expanding it more.

Today I am talking about how I plan on consolidating my blogs, as well as the future of what my sites will be like. Hopefully much more conducive to providing value to each of my subscribers, and perhaps even gain some patrons from their enjoyment of the posts! Here are the links for those who ar…

100th PolyCast Celebration and Update!

Going over the celebration of 100 episodes, a big milestone, and puts me past most shows that fail. Currently at the time of this writing I am approaching 200!

100th PolyCast Celebration and Update! [Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
Welcome to today’s #PolyCast, I’m so excited to note that today is the 100th! Episode :D Years ago I thought about what it would be like to have done 100 #podcasts, or in this case #polycasts, and I’m grateful for all the listeners. As well as, all of the people who have come on the show thus far!…

The Rise of the PolyInnovator Ghost Website

Ohhhhh if only I had known what hell I was about to go through with this Ghost CMS site!!

The trials came down to my limited coding knowledge, but I learn quickly. It was just that even professionals were having hell with getting things like the drop down menu to work.

I found the most efficient way to upload a new theme any time I made a change, instead of using a local version. It may not be the best, but I want to see it on the live site. Since then I've played with the style, and added even more content. Even some hidden stuff too for people to find.

The Rise of the PolyInnovator Ghost Website [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
What’s in store for you? After building a brand new website for you all, I ended up hitting some technical roadblocks, and need to work my coding knowledge to complete it. Which is exactly what I’m doing! Recently, I decided to start doing each of the interviews daily until the end of the year. T…

Sprints and Cycles

The flow of life, and the FLOW cycle. Finding where your brain, focus, and rituals of life are in your daily habits.

Sprints and Cycles [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
This quick idea rant is about the cycles of life, creation of content, and overall you. Maybe you can apply it to your FLOW cycle, understanding your habits/rituals, and how what stage you are in the year, and how your energy is at that time. What it does to your overall Self-Improvement. #habit…

PPS - Habits and Systems

Expanding upon the previous one about habits, this is the precursor to the PolyInnovation Operating System.

PPS - Habits and Systems [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
Part of the Personal PolyInnovation System. Now although self-improvement, or habits and systems; Is the second stage of the PPS. I wanted to create more content around that part of it. It is something I intend on talking more about, and this was an idea rant that came to mind today! Cheers

I am like a Stock Reel of Information

When I teach I go off, and give as much info as I can without overloading a person. Sometimes I still do, but that is only if they are a slow learner. ;)

Most of the time though I have something to offer.

I am like a Stock Reel of Information [Fireside Micro-PolyCast] - The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
“A length of information at the bottom of the display screen, providing news on the subject matter like Stocks on News channel” From my 3 simple steps to swimming, to the various content series I have for PolyInnovator, to even the Personal PolyInnovation System. I have managed to create reels of i…

There wasn't a whole lot of them...

During this season of the PolyCast I was focusing most on getting my interviews out the door. Thereby even having a 40 days of Polycasts to be more efficient. Ironically that bit me in the butt, as my repurpose tool failed to syndicate HD versions of the interviews. I digress.

Since the time was focused more on the long form content, then the short form Micro-Polycasts got the short end of the stick. No pun intended...

It was around this time I was thinking about what the best flow was for these episodes. I wanted to release ANY podcast at least 5 times a week. One OmniContent, one interview, and perhaps around 3 micro episodes.

However I got lucky if I got one out, and I think over the next couple seasons that improved. Although it seems like now still, it is a matter of about 1 a week.
