In this episode Andrew explores the nature of the demonic and our past as recorded in the structure of our gray matter as sources of feelings, thoughts, cravings, etc. that are not telling us who we truly are now and who we are becoming. In the process, he explores, the ladder of being, the source of evil as not our matter, St. Ignatius Loyola, the discernment of spirits, consolation and desolation, the structure of our synaptic connections, and Planet 9 being a great example of a hidden element of disorder in the system.
“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.
