In this early morning episode a tired insomniac Andrew talks about people’s reaction to Trump deciding for once not to act like a divisive cartoon figure, talks about Ash Wednesday and why people like getting ashes on their forehead, muses on the word possessions and the distinction between what you have and what has you, and finally discusses his intended Lenten practice of Auto-Immune Paleo Protocol, less screen time, and a more analog life and uses that to give some principles you can use to tune your Lenten practice.
“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.
