I’ve been trying to learn about polymaths for years now. I’ve been asking questions about the role of polymaths in society to people around the world from Chris Anderson, the owner of Ted to Ian Goldin. I’ve also read every book I can get my hands on about the importance of.
I’ve also been working on setting up a podcast for nearly a year now exploring how to actually live as a polymath and develop multi-disciplinary skills. Finally a couple of days ago I quietly launched The Polymath Show which will produce videos, podcasts and articles about polymathy in the 21st century.
The first episode of the podcast is now live and you can listen to it below. In it I share my thoughts on what it means to be a polymath arguing that rather than being an adjective used only for geniuses in our society, instead it should be a goal that everyone can aspire to.
I’ll be releasing much more content through The Polymath Show in the future so please subscribe to the weekly newsletter on the site and check out all the articles and videos already online.
