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.

Two stories separated by two years. Two moments moved by music.

Have you ever felt lost? Ever found yourself stuck in a moment where you look outside of yourself for answers? Or where an answer came from outside - even when you weren’t looking?

Throughout history music has played the role of the catalyst for everything from our individual lives to the direction of our societies. This week we explore that role - from the micro to the macro - through two vignettes.

The first, a personal moment of struggle for Nick, and the second, Brett’s personal experience of a national moment of struggle. Each informing the other in some way, and linked by through the themes of music, being lost, and finding hope.
