In this episode Andrew sits down in a somewhat sketchy roadside park for a chat with his good friend designer/brand architect & Counter Position fanboy Wes Bancroft about good design, branding, and strategy, what all that might have to do with Catholicism and the spiritual life. For a special bonus, Wes tells a bit about his adventures doing design work for Kanye West and how to make it “swish”.
“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.
