In this episode Andrew talks about driving his new car in the snow, the challenges and advantages of stick shifts for the job, and thinking Google was way smart than it is. Then, he finishes up some thoughts from his long drive back from KS including Walking Dead blankets, Truckers Against Trafficking, surfing classic rock radio, dancing in the car, and strategic road trip caffeination. Finally, he turns serious and talks about the 4 young people who kidnapped a mentally disabled kid, including a caveat on being too old to know the PC terms for such things, and then tries to wrap his head around the level of narcissism that makes someone do something so evil and then broadcast it live on Facebook.
“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.
