Episode 159- Update from the Cave, Political Rumblings & Ramblings, Ratzinger Studies Program, and Wisdom from Fr. Gawronski.
In this episode an insufficiently caffeinated Andrew gives an update on his 30 Day Paleo Reset on Day 4, muses on the meeting between Paul Ryan and Donal Trump, talks (possibly again?) about an article on liberal bias in academia, then turns to a new program at the Patristicum in Rome offering a Master in Joseph Ratzinger/Pope Benedict 16th’s life and thought, and finally, contemplates some wisdom on the life of prayer from Fr. Raymond Gawronski in his book A Closer Walk With Christ.
“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.
