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.

Welcome to the first “extrasode” of Where There’s Smoke. These are quick episodes we produce between our full Tuesday episodes when we feel that we’ve got something to say. This week, we received an email from a listener in New Jersey commenting on our visualization episode and asking about the risks of being overly optimistic.


Leaping off a New York Times article he provided, and weaving through articles in Forbes & Scientific American, we pass through a TED Talk, and end up realizing that “knowing is half the battle”.
