In this fairly scattered episode, after a weekend recap containing bbq, interviews, brain candy science fiction TV, a soiree in a cool kitchen, a beer brunch with monks, and a whole lot of Fr. Michael O’Loughlin, Andrew dives into what it means for the Blessed Virgin Mary to be taken up body and soul in Heaven, how that might change how we view ourselves, our work, our worship, our making, our work, and even our lovemaking. #MatterMatters #NoGnosis #FleshIsGoodMkay?
“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.
