Shame Rules! is a new narrative podcast that explores the many, many, many ways that shame, often invisibly, shapes not just our own lives and experiences, but our entire world. Join host Nick Jaworski (Where There's Smoke) as he investigates shame's role in raising and educating children, determining what laws get written and enforced, deciding how we treat marginalized people, seeing how we view change itself, influencing who has power and who doesn’t - and that's just scratching the surfa ...
 
Where There's Smoke 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.
