In this episode, after musing on the end of the 2 week day job Ironman he’s been running and the subsequent sushi coma, talks about freedom, regaling you with stories of the glories of fireworks in Fillmore, CA, throwing bottle rockets as masculine development, and having giant bottle rocket wars in the clay pits of his home town as a boy, along with his possible lead contamination. Then, he uses the first couple passages of the Declaration of Independence to muse the nature of freedom, the role the divine plays in it, whether that’s forcing religion on anyone, and just what in the world we might have been up to with this upstart experiment called America back in 1776. Boom!!!

“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.
