The Counter Position Episode 122 - Terrorism vs. Security and Liberty in Balance, Trying to Garden in a War Zone, and The Spiritual Life as Combat
In this episode Andrew, after reviewing the standoff between the Justice Department and Apple, tries to draw the broad brushstrokes of our current situation in the West regarding the tension between liberty and security and how that came about, then turns to use that reality as a metaphorical lens through which to view the big picture of our life as beings both spiritual and physical living in a reality in which battle and combat is happening whether we acknowledge it or not.
“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.
