The Counter Position Episode 128 - “If a thing is worth doing, it’s worth doing badly.” & Man the Cook
In this episode Andrew talks about a frustrating weekend and about his relationship with frustration as a influence in his life. Then, he shifts to looking at an idea he picked up from Michael Pollen over the weekend, that man is the only being that cooks, then explores the meaning and ramifications of that concept.
“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.
