In this episode Andrew ends the week with a good old fashioned Counter Position download of everything that had not been mentioned and that had been swimming around his head for the week, along with the obligatory semi-failed attempt to draw a line between them. Including…the weather in Denver, plumbing apocalypse update, Peter Zelasko, Roger Thompson, his movie Beyond Sight, and his book My Best Friend’s Funeral, Eugene Peterson, Bono, The Message, Running with Horses, Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace, farming as as cosmological activity, the spark at the moment fertilization, quantum entanglement, reality and mystery, turning dogs into cows, and Frank Sheed on the role of your head and reality in sanity, and much much more.
“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.
