In this episode, which seemingly had a mind of its own, Andrew, after talking about Bulletproof coffee and doing an impromptu commercial for stick blenders, talks about being excited that a new cafe opened a block from his house, muses on the difficulty of the life of a independent cafe owner, and ends with a ranty muse-ish guilt trip about supporting the small businesses around you. Then, he looks at the conflict between old school feminists in light of the modern commitment to gender fluidity, all in the context of an increasing detachment from nature. Finally, he muses about a few thoughts on Suicide Squad and the nature of bad guys doing good, which we all are.
“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.
