In this episode, back in his old stomping grounds of Ventura, CA, Andrew escapes the wind noise by retreating to his rental car to record, gripes about LA traffic, muses on Bar Nine Collective’s decision to cut tips, raise prices, and pay a living wage, rejoices over the fact that Mercy smiled at him, and basically does the travelogue that is the Beachisode.
“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.
