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.

It's Single-Tasking Day and we’re taking the chance to talk about all things related to “focus”. We thoroughly explore multitasking and single-tasking while trying to understand what these habits do for our efficiency and our health. Plus, we also get to the bottom of who started Single-Tasking Day in the first place!

We also speak with cognitive neuroscientist, Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman. She talks about the physical and emotional costs of multitasking - and, honestly, it’s a bit shocking.

But there’s also good news! We provide some strategies that can help you rev up your brain's performance at any age.

Plus we visit the “WTS Offices”, where Nick has a special message on how you can support the show.
