The Counter Position Episode 276- Paul McCusker: An Impromptu Conversation on Political All or Nothing and the Use of the Horror Genre to Communicate Spiritual Themes

January 30, 2017
Paul McCusker stops into the studio and starts a conversation with Andrew while he is setting up his gear but deadlines put Paul to a decision to "shut up or take a mic". He took a mic. What ensues is an engaging dynamic conversation between two people who consider conversation a hobby, ranging from the recent executive orders, the extremes of the reaction, the nature of balancing safety and openness, culture, race, The Wall, dairy workers, and many other political matters. Then, exasperated by politics, they turn to the realization that the supernatural as real, the role that plays in conversion and what subsequent options that leave, and the role of magic, fantasy, and horror to communicate those themes and ideas.
