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.

Where There’s Smoke is a year old and as Brett & Nick bounced around several themes for the anniversary show, everything kept pointing back to one idea: work. Yup. Work is both hard... and awesome.

So this week they explore work. First, Nick shares Ira Glass’ concept of The Gap - a precarious place to be for anybody looking to accomplish something new. Then, Brett explores the word ‘Work’ itself and how it inspires us to keep going.

Plus our first midroll in ages, and of course, WTSdigs.
