In this episode, after mea culpas about an iTunes mix up, Andrew shares his latest internet shenanigans including his creation of a new form of positive trolling called ‘gnoming’ and his dark satire of the 7 Day Love Your Spouse Challenge. Then, inspired by a quote in an interview with Fr. Carron in an Italian paper, he explores what might be the difference between living as an “original presence” vs. merely living as a “reactive presence”. Along the way he inserts sidebars about the earthquake in Norcia, Italy and announces his upcoming trip to CA.
“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.
