Brandi Stanley

Today we're talking to Brandi Stanley, host of the podcast This Plus That. Brandi makes a living out of making connections. If creativity is the ability to connect the seemingly un-connectable, that’s the art she practices. In love with the space between things—the intersections and the paradoxes—she's constantly looking for what insights can be gained when we mash the unexpected together and the growth that happens when we learn to hold complexity. 

We had a great time talking with Brandi about so many things, from the hustle culture to church history, from empty calories as a metaphor to the gift economy, and of course all of the good dirt in between all of it. If you enjoy “connecting the dots” as they say, and discovering how much more we all have in common with each other than we think, then you’ll love this conversation.
