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.

    In Memoriam: Verleon Grant (Listener Favorite Guest and Nick's Grandmother)

    Sadly, my grandmother passed away this week at the age of 99. You might remember her from episode #49 of WTS: Can't Get There From Hair (Acceptance). 
    She was a force and I hope you take a few minutes to listen to what she has to say.

    82: A Christmas Episode

    82: A Christmas Episode

    It is December and any show worth its weight in gold (or frankincense… or myrrh) has a Christmas episode - and WTS is definitely with its weight in tree resin.
    This episode comes to you in the form of two audio gifts. We even wrapped them and put them under the tree for you. We hope you enjoy them and, perhaps, even take away an idea or two that helps your holiday season be merry and bright.

    Thank you to Joseph Quinn for joining us in this episod and also for crafting and recording this year’s jazzy holiday version of our theme.


    p.s. This is Where There’s Smoke’s 3rd Christmas episode. If you love Christmas and all things Christmas, be sure to check out the other two - 38: A Where There’s Smoke Christmas and 56: Soaking in the Holidays (Feeling) . The first is an all-time fun and wacky WTS classic, and the second is a beautiful and reflective listen.

    81: Halloween or Hallo... won’t? (Play)

    81: Halloween or Hallo... won’t? (Play)

    What is Halloween without the trick or treating?

    That is the question that started the journey of this episode. A lot of our traditions over the next few months are going to look different this year. Not just Halloween. It’s unlikely that celebrations of US Thanksgiving, Diwali, Hanukkah, or Christmas will have the same gatherings of people they have in the past. And that sucks. And many people feel stuck.
    And this feeling of being stuck is not exclusive to Halloween where 2020 is concerned.

    So how do we adapt? And is perhaps perhaps a tool that can help all of us adapt? For Halloween … and beyond.

    60: Just The Way You Are - A WTS Favorite

    60: Just The Way You Are - A WTS Favorite

    Halloween is coming up and that means Halloween movies and TV specials! To celebrate, Nick explores one of the earliest and most famous Halloween specials - It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. An often overlooked element in that show is the fact that Linus must be sincere in order for the Great Pumpkin to arrive. But, what does it mean to be sincere? Is it the kind of thing that we can create or should we just fake it ‘til we make it?
    Brett & Nick branch out from the Great Pumpkin to discuss sincerity in a variety of situations - from late night talk shows to a friendly neighbor.
    Make sure to check back on Tuesday, October 27 for a brand new Halloween episode of WTS!

    80: Can We Talk? (Dialogue)

    80: Can We Talk? (Dialogue)

    The world is grappling with a lot of tough issues. Issues that are nuanced and layered. Issues that don’t necessarily have a right or wrong answer. Issues that demand dialogue for progress. And yet we seem to mostly be doing something else. 
    This week we are talking about talking. Debate vs Dialogue. Nick revisits an actual debate, and both Nick and Brett attempt to create some dialogue. 
    In the end they hope to answer the question, Is dialogue dead?
