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.

Why do we ask questions? What power do they have? And how can they help us create and shape our businesses, relationships, and lives?

What would it sound like to take an exploration into the world of questions? Could we start with some famous movie quotes? Perhaps steer into historic moments? And maybe dig into: Why do we ask questions? What stops us from asking them more often? How can we strengthen our questioning skills?

If I told you that your question asking skills may have peaked at 3 years old, would you listen?

How do we incorporate two guests into the show? Would you be excited to hear from HopeLab’s Chris Marcell Murchinson and clinical psychologist (and game creator!) Dr. Kelly Werner? What if they share specific questioning tools we can use to accelerate connections and build authentic communities in our businesses and our lives? 

Guests: HopeLab’s Chris Marcell Murchinson and Dr. Kelly Werner
