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.

Love is the still the killer app. No matter how much we innovate our strategies and advance our technology, all great leaders will tell you that caring is still at the heart of success.

This week, we explore powerful concepts like kindness and support, while honoring the life of Stuart Scott - a man who practiced both habits throughout his life. We also look to tombstones for some wisdom, and explore the “philosophy of life in a nutshell” with Milton Mayeroff (“On Caring”).

In our final act, we look at how lives get shaped by the actions of others, and introduce the concept of #PivotalForces. Who are the people who have positively changed the trajectory of your life? How can you thank them in a way that inspires others?

A very special thanks to Dave Powers for appearing in this episode.
