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 US Presidential Election is weeks away, and while Brett and Nick initially thought they wouldn’t address it in the show, it eventually became clear there was no way around it. After all, the whole premise of Where There’s Smoke is to take pop culture and current events, and wrap it up into a conversation about self-development. And the current US Election is dominating both pop culture and current events.

That said, this still is WTS and not a political podcast, so Brett and Nick are using the current election climate to talk about a series of things from responsibility to lying to democracy to decency. And though the show leaps off of things happening in the political arena, it is really about being a better human being, and we believe the ideas in here that apply to your everyday lives.

So hit play, and let’s see if we can find the positive and productive in this perceived mess of an election.

And of course, this week’s WTSdigs with Brett & Nick.
