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.

Experience. It’s more than Jimi Hendrix’s band. It is the thing which shapes and sculpts us throughout our lives. It is the process by which wisdom and mastery are created.

This week on Where There’s Smoke we explore the value of our experiences. We dig through our desire for instant gratification to discover that perhaps it just isn’t that gratifying. And we have a conversation with author and explorer Bassam Tarazi on why 3rd gear should be sexier.

Also, we have a favor to ask you - the listener. It’s easy. It will make a huge difference. And we are even offering some awesome incentives in return.
