The Counter Position Episode 226 - Sushi & Chorizo, Weird Babies, Materialist Magic, and Musk Makes Mars Mission
In this episode Andrew, drunk on sushi from lunch, gushes over Chipotle adding chorizo to their menu, spends a whole segment trying to sound smart while basically being weirded out by a three parent baby, explores the world view implications of Neil Degrasse Tyson watching David Blane put an ice pick through his hand, and finally, wonders whether believing we are in a simulation is Elon Musk’s strategic innovation advantage.
“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.
