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.

How much of who we are is influenced by where we are? And what do we do if we feel our environment is draining us, instead of charging us?

A year and a half ago, Brett moved from San Francisco to the suburbs of Toronto, and lately he’s wondering - well, actually he’s worried - if his new environment may be having a negative effect on him. So he sets out to explore how each of us are affected by both what is around us, and who is around us. And we learn not only what impact our environment has on our thoughts, feeling, and results; but also what we can do to alter environments that might not support us.

Along the way we hear from the author Adam Alter; Neuroscience Professor Sebastian Seung; Zig Zigler; and Jason Silva. And have a one-on-one conversation with the founder of Archangel and the Archangel Summit, Giovanni Marsico.

Plus a new edition of WTSdigs.
