In this episode Andrew shuts down the week by clearing his head of everything he’s been thinking about and that has been going on. After rejoicing over finding his 1099 needle in his backlog haystack, he goes on a rabbit trail consisting of the big picture of the GTD system and publicly claims he is getting back on the GTD bandwagon. Then, after the weather report (go home Denver, you’re drunk), relaying hearing the most New Age conversation ever overheard, and doing a quick review of Vert Kitchen and Overt Coffee on South Pearl, he returns to proposing Catholic Social Doctrine as a place of dialogue where Left and Right could meet, via an article about the new Gilder book, the Bernie Sanders comments for a Vatican conference, and a revisit of the Authur Brooks TED talk. Finally, influenced by his GTD work and reading Body by Science, he riffs on the concept of minimum effective dose. (MED) This is a very Counter Position episode of the Counter Position.
“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.
