The Counter PositionEpisode 292- Giving Up Giving Up For Lent, You Can’t Believe Your Digital Eyes, and Freedom on the Boat
In this episode, after a chatty segment including Spring springing, a Lent update, how he has given up reacting to one small slip in his Lenten practice and just quitting like he used to, how Mark from Over the Counter lost his voice, and an apology over skipping a couple days of shows, a cheery but tired Andrew gets sidetracked on what was supposed to be a passing point on his outline and explores the ramifications of Wikileaks, the problems with digital attribution, the loss of belief in our senses, what this all has to do with Trump, how the RNC is a dog who caught up with the car they were chasing and don’t know what to do with it, and much much more political musing and ranting, despite his intentions for the show. Finally, spurred by a recent conversation, Andrew delves into a couple of insight from a talk by RR Reno and David Brooks about life, decisions, freedom, limits, and how to figure out what to do with your life. This show had a mind of its own evidently. https://BreadboxMedia.podbean.com/mf/web/es9mtr/Counter_Position_292.mp3
“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.
