The Counter Position Episode 120- Reflections on Stereotypes, Work as Prayer, and the Beautiful Particularity of Persons/You’re Like Totally My New Best Friend
In this episode Andrew muses on his experience of hanging with Michael Miley, drummer for the band Rival Sons, his experiences at the concert, and his conversations with Miley and the rest of the band backstage. Highlights include having his stereotype of Opus Dei and what was possible/likely shattered, the instructive nature that seeing someone’s commitment to their craft can have on your commitment to yours, and what you can learn from a rock star lead singer’s past as an undertaker regarding love and ministry.
“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.
