In this episode, inspired by a full weekend of interacting with people with no cell phones at Wyoming Catholic College, Andrew explores the role screens, literal and metaphorical, play in our life, remembers what it was like before them, explores the difference between direct experience and captured experience, and finally muses on what an “Analog Lent” would look like in reality.
“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.
