The MultiPod

The MultiPod Lead Image

The MultiPod is an independent podcast exploring the ideas and profiles of the world’s first community of dedicated multipotentialites, the Puttytribe. Multipotentialites (a.k.a “multipods”) have diverse interests, skills, and creative outlets – making us capable of success in just about anything.

Our cultures and global economy today demand creativity and flexibility, and more people are creating purposeful lives from the intersections of various pursuits. Join us every other week to share in the amazing journeys of our Puttytribe members.

Show hosts – Ted, Sandrine, and Sara – are constantly exploring what’s important in the wide world of multipotentiality. In each episode, they profile at least one member of the Puttytribe and discuss themes like work ethic and productivity, mental health, jobs vs. careers, languages, simplicity, and rituals.

Do you have questions or suggestions for the show? Feel free to contact the team.
