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.

Superman can’t lead for sh*t. That was a playful title in the mix as we crafted this episode on vulnerability. As you listen, you will start to understand what that means, and how vulnerability feeds creation, fuels innovation, dissolves barriers, and expands presence.

This week’s episode is an exploration of vulnerability -- why it’s scary, how we can re-frame it, and why the world so desperately needs it.

And four times TEDx speaker and a man know for heart based connection in networking, Bobby Umar, joins us in the second half of the show. He shares a story that exemplifies vulnerability, both in its details and his willingness to share it with us.
