In this episode Andrew explores his love of rainy days, gives an extended repeat shout out/pitch for Shrine Coffee, begs his listeners to take part in a check-in experiment to let him know who is listening, muses on another side of the Trump/Hillary debacle by considering the role of foreign policy vs. abortion and other issues, then finally talks about an enlightening encounter at the airport train station in which he was given something unexpected.
“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.
