Where There’s Smoke is a weekly podcast that 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.

The Breakfast Club was released into theaters 30 years ago this month. John Hughes’ classic is about five teenagers who spend a Saturday in detention and realize they are more than their respective stereotypes. As with most Hughes movies, the themes and lessons are still very relevant today. So, what can we learn from The Breakfast Club that we can apply into our lives and businesses?

In this episode, we weave through the ‘80s, dip our toes into the ‘90s, and end up in the present day discussing different modes of empathy - their benefits and costs. We finish in a “truthbump” conversation with author, speaker, and word nerd, Kevin Hall.
