In this episode a punchy and tired Andrew finishes the week and very a long stretch of work and travel, by talking about how hard he is going to do nothing this weekend, how El Chapo moved to NYC, Trump moved to DC, and Obama should move to Mexico to keep things in balance. Then, he turns to the assorted goings on in our nations capitol talking about the concert, inauguration, protests, and speech. Finally, he moves to talking a bit about the Betsy DeVoss Grizzly Bear debacle and what charter schools and farmer’s markets might have in common.
“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.
