#TheCounterPosition Episode 179 - Lost Audio, New Toys, Moments of Silence, Boomers at Mass Reprised, National Cell Phone Free Day, and more on the Pope as Pastoral Realist
In this episode, after many mea culpas for messing up and losing the audio of two full days of audio interview with Matt Simmons, Andrew finally bites the bullet and buys big boy microphones. Then, after a nice rant about cell phones interrupting him during his porch time and the promotion of a new cell phone free holiday, he takes another stab at how Baby Boomers act after mass vs. the young and examines the concept of the “moment of silence” as the iconic prayer of a contentless age. Finally, he can’t help himself and he goes back into musing on Pope Francis in light of Giussani and Aristotle’s version of Plato’s Cave. All while holding a microphone like Frank Sinatra or Wayne Newton.

“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.
