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.

It's our first new Where There's Smoke episode in two years!

Pliny the Elder said, “The only certainty is that nothing is certain.”

In a world where nothing is certain and so much is out of our control, what options do we really have? Should we fight? Do we give up? Or is there something else?

In this episode we move from a tragic accident, through quicksand, and into a very personal story from Brett about his Mom - all while exploring the power of surrender.
