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.

So much of our life is going from Point A to Point B, and it is about execution, deliverables, and responsibilities. And there is an absolutely a place for that. However for our sanity, and our success, it is also important that we take breaks. And these breaks provide us with much more than just a rest - they are an opportunity to reboot and reset -  and they can dictate the quality of our work and our lives.

In our 50th episode (and the final episode of Season Two), we are joined by Karan Bajaj - best-selling author, marketing executive, and striving yogi, who has found a way to take yearlong sabbaticals on a semi-regular basis. We talk with Karan about the importance of extended breaks on our creativity, mindset, and identity.

Plus a few “digs” for the road.
