The Counter Position Episode 152 - Adam Beach: On Eating, Drinking, and Conversation, Late Babies, and Almost Getting Shot By Wendell Berry
In this episode Andrew has a great conversation with his friend, fellow eater, drinker, and interlocutor Adam Beach, as he awaits the birth of his third “over due” child, about the power of food and drink to embody conversation and relationship, an Agrarian cosmological vision of reality, and how Adam almost got himself shot for trespassing by noted writer Wendell Berry. Not to be missed.
“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.
