The Counter Position Episode 223 - Cardinal Game at Rockies Stadium, Meeting Brad Pitt & the Nature Story Memory, and a Reluctant Re-engagement with the Topic of Race and the Police
In this episode, after a shout out to Rosalie Contrite, jubilation over finding 2 roommates in time, jokingly implicating himself in the Brangelina break up, and excitement over a Cardinals game taking place in Rockies Stadium, Andrew tells the story of meeting Brad Pitt and muses on the nature of memory and story. Then, he reluctantly wades into the dangerous territory of race, police, the use of deadly force, system, training, history, and culture.
“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.
