A politically distraught and melancholic Andrew rambles in sub-rant fashion about the state of our political system. Along the way he actually defends HRC’s hot sauce carrying, admits he’d take Bill back, tries to figure out why the only people who seemingly understand our founding are awkward white guys from the political/lawyer class, designs his perfect candidate, and blames Fox News for the dumbing down of political discourse into shouting of bullet points and slogans.
“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.
