In this episode, after a hearty rant to Apple computer about 39.86 gigs of unfindable audio hogging his hard drive, Andrew goes into one of his more personal and existential shows in which he explores how the recent hope that has emerged in his life has turned to sheer terror at the thought of all the crazy stuff happening in the world becoming much much more real and less abstract if he has a child to raise and protect. One story in this episode is not really for the kids.
“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.
