#TheCounterPosition Episode 172 - Deep Sleep, Kicknoses and Felt Banners, The 75th Anniversary of the Weight of Glory, and How Andrew Has Wasted His Life
In this episode Andrew recounts how he finally slept more deeply than any human in history last night and how seeing a modern kid riding an 80s skateboard with no kicknose made him understand Boomers and their love of felt banners and the Gather hymnal. Then, he commemorates the 75th anniversary of C.S. Lewis famous sermon “The Weight of Glory” and praises Lewis’ deep sanity and clarity. Finally, shamed by the fact that Lewis was 42 during that sermon, Andrew bemoans how he has completely wasted his life.

“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.
