Where There's Smoke explores self-development through the filter of current events, pop culture, and experience. We surf the zeitgeist through an array of audio clips, quotes, concepts, and conversations. In the spirit of The Daily Show and This American Life, we throw everything into an audio centrifuge that separates “what” from “why”. You walk away with insights and actionable solutions to improve your business, relationships, and almost any area of your life.

Follow BRETT GAJDA and NICK JAWORSKI, hosts of “Where There’s Smoke”, as they learn the ins-and-outs of marketing a podcast.

Two holiday vignettes make up this week’s episode: First, Brett peels back the veneer of the joyful and festive holiday season, to acknowledge that sometimes … Christmas sucks.

Nick returns to bring attention to one of his personal favorite episodes of WTS. (Well, at least part of it... come back on Thursday!) *** Original Show Notes (2/9/16) In honor of the return of Serial, this week we’re looking at Truth - well, truth and lies. Sometimes we lie for good reasons and sometimes we lie for bad ones. Which is which and why…

Author Frank Herbert once said, “There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.” In this final episode of Season 4, Brett & Nick take a look back and ask “What is the story of Season 4?”, “Was it a success?”, and - most importantly - “What’s next?”. Thanks for listening. We love you. We’ll see you next time. * * * Get our ne…

This 48 Hour Challenge is going to be classic. Literally. But what is classic? How do we define it? Is there a Classic version of you? And if so, what can the Classic You teach the Current You?

Integrity is defined as “a state of being whole and undivided”. It is a simple concept, and yet at times, living it can be some of the hardest work we will ever do. This week we hear from Matthew Schueller about an important journey in his life - it’s his journey to integrity. We know that it’s a story with themes that can resonate with everyone an…
 
Expression is the process of taking something from a spark of an idea through to existence. And, while there can be moments in that process that are truly amazing, it can also run us through the ringer - several times over. So, what is required of us to press our expression out into this world? Is want enough or does it require something more? This…
 
We’ve all had a time or two (... or three…) where we’ve shared a secret that wasn’t ours and it comes back to his us square in the face. Sometimes, before you even think about it, you’ve let something slip out of your mouth and immediately cringe - just wishing you could jump into a 15-second time machine so you can pull those words back into your …

In the 1976 movie Network, upon being prompted by news anchor Howard Beale, people in cities all over the USA get up, open their windows, and yell, “I’m mad as hell as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!”. It is now 2018 and people still seem mad as hell - only now, instead of yelling out our windows, we have the internet to amplify our rage…
 
What would it take for this to be your best year ever? That said, what is a year? Is it the days between January 1st and December 31st? Or is it any 12 month span of time? And does it even matter?

We’ve heard it countless times before: “Beautiful minds inspire others,” “Time to inspire,”, “Get out there and inspire people”, or simply “Be inspiring.” But, despite all of what the people and posters hanging on office walls say about inpiring others, rarely does anyone tell you how to do that. How do you inspire others? Communication is a linchp…

Her new book, The Four Tendencies, provides us…
 
It’s easy to see that the world has a lot of problems right now. But as the saying goes, slightly paraphrased, ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing’. And we don’t feel that anyone who listens to this show is interested in doing nothing. So, in our first show of Season 4, we decided to tackle that little…
