The Counter Position Episode 236- Possible Craters, Avoiding the Dumpster Fire, Promotion vs. Connection, Digital Addiction & Numbness, and A Huge Huge Discovery
In this episode a well-rested and less bedraggled (it is a word) Andrew tells of almost being blown up by a gas leak, recounts all the healthy fun things he did instead of watching the debate last night, talks about a Catholic trying to reduce him to a Like, explores some ideas in Andrew Sullivan’s “I Used to be a Human Being” and muses on digital addiction, then finally celebrates a new discovery that turns Carbon Dioxide back into Ethanol in one easy room temperature step.
“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.
