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.

Jim Cuddy has been making music with Greg Keilor for 40 years. For the last 34 of those years, they have made up the songwriting duo for one of Canada’s most beloved and best-selling bands, Blue Rodeo.

Brett sits down with Jim to talk about that partnership along with the challenges and benefits of a long standing collaboration. We explore what collaboration is and how it has been crucial to human evolution. And through the lens of Jim Cuddy’s latest album, Constellation, we see how collaboration not only has the ability to bring us together, but also to support us in times when we are torn apart.

Plus, Brett looks to find confirmation of an old event and Nick joins in to provide an update on their fasts from social media and cable news, respectively.
