The Counter Position Episode 119 - Michael Miley of Rival Sons on Rock and Roll and the Spiritual Path of Doing Your Best
n this episode Andrew has a conversation with his good friend and Counter Position listener Michael Miley, drummer of the band Rival Sons, who stopped in while in Denver opening for Black Sabbath. They cover his conversion to Christianity and eventually Roman Catholicism, the life of a Catholic on the road as a rock drummer, and how he lives out his faith by sanctifying his work as a Cooperator in the work of Opus Dei.
“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.
