The Counter Position Episode 227 - Shout Outs Galore, Foundation Shenanigans, Digital Ripples, Perspective from a Train Wreck, and Musings on Self-Knowledge
In this episode, after shout outs for Alex and Elizabeth’s wedding and Reginald/Ryan’s ordination this weekend, Andrew looks at two instances of investigation crowdsourced via social media and non-profit shenanigans from both Trump and Clinton. Then, he turns a story of providence that showed up his shop this morning regarding a woman who missed the train that crashed in NJ and the nature of perspective. Finally, he gets more abstract and personal and muses on some insights around self-knowledge, our actions, and the nature and strength our desire- basically a 12 minute vague journal entry.
“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.
