Walter Geer III (Patience and Wake-Up Calls)

Walter Geer III is a creative director in the advertising world. In 2018, he approached me with this one specific story, and in this episode, we return to that moment, that project — one that is now ongoing, one that focuses on social justice, equality, ambition, expectations, repercussions, and perseverance. One that's changed Walt's life and changed the lives of people working with words and images and sound throughout his industry. And made some of them angry, too. This is a story of what it means to stand up, to take flak for standing up, and to keep standing up regardless. Walter Geer III is our guest on this episode of ‘All Your Days.’
