In this episode, after a hearty shout out to Denver and the Broncos for putting 1.2 million people in the streets for a parade and making it smooth, and a moment of negative amazement at a group of English ethicists who have decided infants are not persons, Andrew has a conversation with Jeff Cavins about his new book When You Suffer: Biblical Keys for Hope and Understanding. They cover the different types of suffering, how suffering can be redemptive, and tackle the hard questions through an examination of their own experience of suffering. (In short, Andrew’s a baby and bad at it.)
“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.
