In this episode Andrew heads back into his favorite stream and explores his recent experience of a person recoiling at the word “Catholic” through a quotation from Madeleine L’Engle in light of Giussani, Fr. Carron, and Fr. Jose Medina, all an answer to the question of how we should live. This episode is pretty much what the Counter Position is all about.
“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.
