this episode Andrew is once again in Lander, WY training and teaching the staff of Crux Coffeebar at Wyoming Catholic College. After having one of the best days of his life, which nearly cost him his voice, Andrew gets frustrated by an atheist on FB, is inspired by the intelligent wonder of the students, and gets assaulted by an old hippy chick in the hotel hot tub. From all this, Andrew figures out the proper way to engage reality, what that has to do with dialogue, and what both the position behind the counter and the Counter Position truly are.
“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.
