#TheCounterPosition Episode 205 - Fr. Michael O’Loughlin on Chinese Throwing Stars and the Life of Prayer
In this episode Andrew sits down with his friend Fr. Michael O’Loughlin, (FrOLo) of Holy Protection of the Mother of God Byzantine Catholic Church (HoProMoGo) and the Catholic Stuff You Should Know Podcast for a freewheeling conversation covering zebra cakes, Tsunami ninjas, Chinese throwing stars, and 90s rap mic positions, all in the context of a deep examination of the life of prayer, what happens when we ask God for something, why we should ask, and what changes when we do.
“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.
