The Happy Rant podcast is a conversation which Barnabas Piper, Ted Kluck, and Ronnie Martin cheerfully (if sardonically) rant about all the things that don’t matter all that much and some things that do. Too much Christian interaction with culture is angry and vitriolic, so these three bring the humor, pith, and occasional irreverence to bear on it. They rant about church, culture, sports, the arts, entertainment, and occasional nonsense in a manner listeners enjoy and wish they could be part of too.
