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.

Just what IS Christmas Spirit? Is it real? If so, how do we get it? What the heck does CWB stand for? And what’s the role of nostalgia in this whole holiday season?

This week, it’s A Where There’s Smoke Christmas. Brett finds himself a little down in the dumps around Christmas, but Nick may have just the cure - a mysterious VHS tape he found that contains the impossible.

Join Brett & Nick as they go on a journey through history, psychology, and holiday classics to understand Christmas Spirit. Along the way, we’ll meet a cast of characters that all sound a lot like Brett & Nick, find out what the best Christmas Present Brett ever got was, and ultimately hear Nick share what the Christmas Spirit is all about. (Hint: Everyone can enjoy it!)

So grab a cup of eggnog, cozy up to the fire, press play, and enjoy!
