In this epsisode Andrew recounts more drama-laden travel experiences, including a flashback to the Open Mile. Then, he talks about a guy watching naughtiness on the plane, his experience of finding it nearly impossible not to look at a screen in his site in the dark space, and how we evolving into Man the Screenwatcher. After talking about his purchase of a Michigan hat accidentally enrolled him into a cult he never really knew about, Andrew explores how the Russia’s popularity among the Alt-Right is evidence of a movement away from Libertarianism to Nationalism on the right.
“The Counter Position” is a new show by Andrew Whaley, founder of the apostolate Calix. Andrew brings his unique take on things from over 20 years of studying philosophy, theology, art, business, and design while processing those ideas daily over the bar in his coffeehouses with people of all walks of life, most of them being the unchurched/dechurched. Feverishly interested in everything, Andrew covers a wide array of topics, spiritual and otherwise, with his hallmark brand of edgy self-deprecating humor, intellectual speculation, and deep wonder. Interviews range from major Catholic figures and intellectuals to interesting characters with good story or an insight to bring. So, if you’re interested in a new form of Catholic radio, buckle up and tune in.
