In this episode, after a establishing himself as throughly Irish all year long, Andrew says good-bye to his long time producer Jennifer Longworth as she packs up her Pokemon and Star Trek uniform and leaves Breadbox Media for other media pursuits. Then, Andrew sits down with his friend Jon Ervin to talk about how much better the Cardinals are than the Cubs, growing up in a small town, legal drinks, college conversions, FOCUS, the “smell of money” (it’s not what you think), tubing in TX, having Jesus down the hall, and so 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.
